Etsy Lust

Rewarding myself for getting out the draft of my functional thesaurus for group review by letting myself Xmas shop on Etsy. It is intended to be Xmas shopping for OTHER people.

But. Umm. I want this soooo much. It is so adorable!

I've added it to my favorites. Maybe after the holidays, if it's still around...
(Seriously, if anyone wants to buy me anything from my Etsy favorites list, I'll give you my password so you can see. Wish Etsy had a wish list that worked more like Amazon...)

I have a feeling I may update this post with more things as I find them. I love Etsy, I really do.

Rainy Dreams

It's finally raining! I was so happy this morning to wake up to the sound of it, realize I had another half hour to sleep, and snuggle down into my covers.

I dreamed of yarn. But not in a kitten frolic / magically given a yarn store kind of way.

Bucket was giving me a ride to an important meeting. I was almost ready to go - I just needed shoes, a scarf, and a knitting project to take with me. You can imagine how it went. I didn't have any scarves that didn't clash horribly with my outfit, my shoes didn't fit, and there wasn't a single knitting task that I could take which didn't involve a brand new project, which would have to be planned and swatched before I even knew what needles to bring. I bounced back and forth between the 3 problems, it getting later and later, and Bucket more and more irritated.

Half an hour later I woke up again. Still happy to hear the rain, but feeling a lot less snuggly.

And now, I'm off to my (unfortunately real) meeting.
