Sun comes up, it’s Tuesday morning

Posted by jackie blue on March 23rd, 2004

Yesterday was one of those hellish days where I have no time to post and no time to knit. I am still less than halfway through the front of Arabella. That will hopefully be rectified today though I suspect it will be busy today as well.

I always feel bad when I’ve come here to post and there’s no knitting progress to report. But I feel worse when there are no updates for days on end. Ha. I wonder if there’s a support group for Blogger Guilt.

Let me tell you how it will be

Yes, it’s tax day at Chez Blue. Oh joy. As someone who used to have a well paying job and always got refunds, I am no longer looking forward to this. The financial life of a sometimes-working freelancer ain’t pretty.

You know, it occurred to me yesterday that the redesign of this blog is almost the exact blue of the 4 ply cotton that I’ve been working with for months, first with the bobble jacket and now with Arabella. Subliminal designing, anyone?

So I have a long train ride to my accountant and will bring the knitting. Although I want to read my book, too, but hmmm. I need to finish Arabella because I hear I have a box full of yarn heading my way…

I always hated the last design

This one is far more my taste. So, I’ve been busy the last 24 hours, but it hasn’t been knitting. Just decided to spruce things up around here. So, I’m still working out some bugs. If anything is funky, feel free to let me know. I’m on a Mac and haven’t been able to test on a PC platform yet. And those of you with old browsers, it might not work so well. I’m a “live in the now, not in the past” kinda girl. Sorry!

If it’s Tuesday, it must be…

winter! A week before Spring, and we’re having a blizzard. Gotta love it. Can’t say I’m too happy about the snow although I was big on it staying cold for a while longer. I’m not ready for skimpy Spring clothes in my lumpy winter state.

Yesterday was one of those hellish 12 hour days at work without a moment to breathe. So not a lot of knitting going on. I managed about 2 inches of the front of Arabella so far. I might get to do some more today/tonight, when I finish clearing up red tape with my new health insurance company (oh, I can rant on for screenfuls on the healthcare in this country though I guess as a freelancer, I’m lucky to have any) and this week will be busy too with work, taxes (eww!), Daily Show movie screening, mah jongg (oh, what an exciting life I lead) and fitting the gym in there somewhere. A haircut would be nice too. Oh, who am I kidding, Arabella may take a little while.
