I'm Too Tired to Even Begin To Think Of a Decent Title!

This has been one of those days when I have so much to do, I'm overwhelmed, but I'm too tired to accomplish much. Not that I don't try, I do. But I tend to spin my wheels.

Little things sorta got done (dishes, a couple of loads of new fabrics). I got out the door to an Open Studio (our community has this once a year - you can do the Garden Tour and also visit artist studios at the same time). I learned of a new potter in my yoga class, a lovely lady named Maya Bohler, and I visited her studio this afternoon:
I came away with a few items to add to my kitchen's vegetable pottery collection (I'll try to post over on Nana Sadie's Place as it kinda goes with the "Meatless Monday's" theme), and also got the lovely lavender mug in the photo above. I also ordered a custom item: a small pot with lid to house my niece's lavender sugar scrub for the bathroom counter (the pot will be so much nicer than the plastic container it's currently in, dontcha know).

And up there in the photo, you can see a couple of things that arrived in the mail today. Yes, that's a skein of Kauni. The colorway isn't one you can see (the changes are deep inside the ball). But I'm sure you've seen this on Ravelry? The Insanity Shawl (probably very aptly named for me, eh?). The photos of the shawl with the pattern are the same colorway I ordered (no surprise, it's black, gray, and purple). I also bought Gaenor and Argante. Not exactly sure which one I'll do first, but I've a skein of Dream in Color Smooshy that Dianne gifted me with at Sock Summit last year, and it's perfect for either one of the patterns - we'll see after I look at them which one I'm itching to make first, right?

Then the card is a wonderful piece of art from Elizabeth McAfee. My vet sent it along with a couple of lovely inserts and a beautiful message of sympathy for CC's passing. I'd been doing pretty well, but lost it a bit when I read that. The Meezer is having a rougher time. She's been quite needy, obviously missing CC, even tho' CC wasn't very kind to her. Siamese grieve hard, by the way, so we're spending more time together. TM would much prefer that I cuddle constantly (go figure!), but I'm hoping she's okay with me just being in the same room...I've got a show in three weeks, after all! She does keep me company in the sewing room, which is really nice.

We spent a little time there this afternoon after I went running errands and basically picked up almost nothing on my list and mostly stuff I wasn't in desperate need of (as I said, spinning my wheels here). I finally gave up and came home to the machine. I hope to have a few things to show off tomorrow, so please do drop by then?

Now I'm off to make another cup of My Lady's Respite tea in my new cup and sit down with Ishbel to see if I can make a little progress on the final chart. I'm determined to finish her before I cast on for Insanity (somehow that just doesn't quite sound right).

Oh, I've been tired like that some days. But today no excuse other than a new spinning wheel keeping me from getting things done.

And that shawl looks like a great use for Kauni. I have some in my stash that I've been intending to use otherwise, but now...

My whole week was like that. Is it a full moon or something????

Love all of those shawls. They're going on my favs to be considered for christmas gifts.

Just what I need, another project!

I love the idea of casting on for insanity ;) It does sound like you had a busy busy day yesterday, but also got a lot done? I love that new mug -- so beautiful. Give The Meezer and extra scratch from me.

We all have days like that. I think it is our bodies way of telling us to slow down...or it will shut us down. Relax...take it easy and breathe.

That is a beautiful card...I would have cried too. *hugs to you and sweet Meezer* :)

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
