Work and weather and weariness, oh my.

Hello! Long time no see! I'm trying to get better at this whole blog thing, really, but I'm having a lot of trouble trying to find more time. There's been long days needed at work these past few weeks, and by the time I get home I usually only have an hour or so to eat dinner before going to bed. Lather, rinse, repeat. The whole thing has left me very tired and sometimes cranky, hopefully things will be trending back towards normalcy soon.

The weather has taken a strange turn this month... is it really March? It was 80° out today! It's all bright and warm and cheery out, so I painted my nails yellow and black. I love crackle nail polish, it's so simple to use, and I almost always get compliments on my nails!

It's closer to a highlighter color in real life
My husband and I have been spending lots of time at the park reading (and knitting for me, though him not so much.)

Yay for benches and sunshine!

I actually wore a skirt today! It doesn't happen often. My husband told me that between the stripy knee high socks and the semi pointy toed mini boots my outfit reminded him of the wicked witch of the west, but that's okay. It was comfy and flowy and nice to be sitting outside in something other than jeans.

Stripey socks make me happy. No, I didn't knit them, I haven't made it to socks yet.

It's getting really pretty out. I swear that the trees have been flowering overnight, it's all happening so suddenly.

Isn't this pretty? I love these trees.

Not much to tell you about on the crafting front, my moss and bluebells scarf is still on hold (blurry nighttime camera picture below) as I work on my super secret swap gift. Hopefully I will be telling you about that soon!

It's ALMOST long enough now!

Hope you all are doing well, and happy crafting!


  1. Isn't this weather amazing? It was 80 degrees here this weekend! That never happens in March in Minnesota! I love your striped socks/skirt/boots combo!
