Wow - a week gone by and I don't know where it went. Sorry but Sean and I never did make it to the yarn store outside of Cooperstown. I forgot to write down the address before we left and the friend with whom we were staying doesn't have a computer and the store wasn't listed in the phonebook. My cheap a$$ didn't want to pay the $2 it would cost to call information on my cell phone so alas and alack, no LYS review.
Cooperstown was too crowded during the Baseball Hall of Fame induction weekend to really enjoy anything in town. But we did have an excellent time during our with a close family friend. Photos, you ask? Well - they're still on my computer with the hundred or so from Santa Fe. By the time I get them uploaded to share with friends, there will be no point posting them here. Besides, y'all got to see the yarn related ones already.
As for crocheting, I haven't touched a project in over a week. Ye olde Harry Potter has taken up all my commuting and evening time. What a fantastic series! Sure, millions and millions of people already knew this. It just took me a while to get on the bus. I'm glad I've started reading it now that the entire series has been written. I would have been so frustrated to have to wait a year between books to continue the story. That's what is happening with another series I'm reading, The Saxon Chronicles by Bernard Cornwell.
In life news, I've got a job offer - a good one, too, but there is another one I'm waiting for. Sure, the old adage is "a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush" but I've got a gut feeling about the second one. They are going through the HR stuff and it hasn't been officially offered yet, though I'm feeling it will be soon. I would like to turn down the first job and wait for the second, but as I am a Taurus who really likes her stability, this is stressing me out. I am not one for risks especially when they involve my wallet. We should be closing on the condo next month, so the sooner I get a better paying job, the better.
So - boring post, I know. I'm going to try and get myself back on the hook this weekend. BTW - does anyone have any good Harry Potter crochet patterns?
