Mmmm those Brady Bunch flashbacks
I was eating lunch today and looking at blogs and getting a little annoyed at some people who don't ever seem to update their blogs. Then I felt embarassed when I realized there's some kind of pot here and he's harassing a certain kettle. Good intentions, road to hell, blah blah blah. Since I use excuses not to get around to posting, I suppose I can use an excuse to post. It's a sunny afternoon, the first one in a week. Good enough.
It has been a craptastic week. There was an office politics explosion and my awesome boss, her awesome boss, and some other people got laid off. There is other stuff but I can't talk about it. We had the best, most kickass team that I've ever worked with and it's all falling apart. Sometimes I kind of wish it'd been me too.
Last weekend I was at a wedding of a old friend who I spent a lot of good (and not so good) times with. It was a lovely party, but there is some psychological stuff going on in my head (no, not what you're thinking. We're sincerely, really just friends. Neither of us is each other's type at all) and I really want to talk about it but I can't do that in a public space. I'm reticent even speaking with K. It just keeps bothering me. I'll probably sit down and write a huge rambling text file and file it away in the locked journal directory of my computer. Maybe I just need to get it out.
I've finished up 2 pairs of socks, started another, been dyeing like crazy, swearing a lot over trying to reproduce some previous colorings, and started a beaded scarf that I really like but it's SO SLOW it's driving me nuts. It's pre-string-the-beads kind of project and every time I have to pull over a bead it interrupts the whole flow. But it looks so pretty I keep bulling on. Oh, and I swatched for a sweater, like, 2 months ago. What, I'm supposed to start it now? (stop laughing)
What else? Oh, the peas. They love this weather. They're 7 feet tall and STILL GROWING. We're at 4.24" rain for June. Average is 0.24", with a historic minimum 0 and a max of 1.48". But the best thing is they are just getting ripe and it's like my little green sugary heaven out there. They're sugar snap, and mostly they don't even make it inside the house before being devoured. I'll take a picture for you this weekend.
