Last night after work, I picked up my 2010 calendar for the home-front (think I have a thing for sheep?), along with a new comic book and sewing book. It was a good night.
So this morning I did the annual shift of birthdays, etc. to the new calendar. I always love going back over the prior year’s pages and seeing what I did – things like a Pink Martini concert, a trip to New York, and a lot of rehearsal days. I used to just tear out my favorite pictures and recycle the rest, but now I like to hold on to the calendar as a simple momento of what happened that year.
In other news, I think I’ve officially shifted from a blue-green phase to a purple phase. (I’ll be casting on that dark purple Eco-Wool later today for a Vivian knit-a-long I’m doing with my friend Maggie.) Does anyone else do this? Get obsessed with a color, then move on to another, and so on? My phases usually last for about 5-6 months, then I ban myself from buying the shade for a while and then I’ll usually come back to it again. (My last purple phase was Oct 2007-May 2008) Maybe I can talk myself into a yellow phase next.
In other other news, I got my 400th comment on my last post, from the lovely Jen at Pretty Little Pictures. I always love hearing from my readers, so thanks to you all for brightening my day 400 times!
