A week in pictures

I’ve been listening to the audio book “Becoming” (written and narrated by Michelle Obama) in the car as I drive to and from work, all week. I like her even more now than I did before.


We got this personalized Santa in the mail (from Rankin Bass’s Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer.”)  It has our names, our current dogs’ names, and our previous (and much missed) dog’s name (Clyde). We absolutely love it.


I finally felt well enough to have my friend and knitting teacher, Dave, over for dinner and knitting again, this week. We had sushi, and I decided to set a giraffe themed table:

Sushi Giraffes

He brought me a fabric giraffe from a wool and fiber fest he recently went to, and I love it (and him for thinking of me):


I carry a man-bag to work every day. I was looking for something and had to take everything out. I think I’m a travel bag hoarder:


I saw this T-Shirt on Amazon and thought I should own it:


I have this Olaf in my guest room. I bought it for my BF (Jim) for Christmas last year, and didn’t notice, until I got home, that he was missing an arm. I ordered Jim a new one, and kept this one. I want to make him a new arm. Maybe out of Sculpey?


I saw this pillow at a local shop and was really tempted to buy it (because its SO true):

my dream job

Finally, tonight Jeffrey built me a fire because its rainy and cold and he wanted to make me happy and warm me up! We use little easy-lite fire starters to help get the fire going. We are running low, and he asked me to add “Fire starter” to our Grocery List on the fridge, so I wrote the following”


It took him a few minutes to get it. 🙂

I picked up our candy this weekend to hand out for Halloween Thursday. I got three different kinds: miniature candy bars, a bag of gluten free candy, and a bag of nut free candy. While no one has ever asked for gluten free or not free candy, as I man with a gluten allergy, I like offering these allergen free options should anyone request them.

Overall, it was a good week.  Still not feeling 100%, and I still tire easily, but it was a fun and productive week and I’m happy to be mending a little bit each day.

If only tomorrow wasn’t Monday already.

  1. Glad to hear you’re on the rebound, and I love that T-shirt. FYI those superhero T-shirts I bought from Amazon a few weeks ago were surprisingly good quality for what I paid for them. I think I saw 4-5 Hal Jordan/Green Lantern shirts available, and you can pick the color of the T-shirt if you’re interested.
