Friday, November 21


Today I spent some time taking polas of some of my statues and dolls. Things I collect. Or have collected at some point. Not exactly sure what moved me in this direction, but since I haven't been shooting much at all, it was nice to be behind the camera again. I've never been particularly good at taking pictures of objects so perhaps that's what moved me to do a photo shot with my collections. I'm actually pretty pleased with the outcome, although I have to say the original photos are much crisper than the scans.

I spent a good part of the day knitting, of course. I am working on a felted handbag for my mother-in-law. I finished the body of the bag and then discovered that I don't have the needles that I need for the straps. So it's going on the back burner until I get the right needles. Next up, hats hats and more hats!

Last night we actually went out to watch the Steelers game. It was good to be out considering how much time I spend at home, but it was frustrating too. I like to hear what's going on and the sound was way too low at the bar. And I had to keep a lid on all my cursing and Terrible Towel waving. Had we been at an actual sports bar, I probably would have felt okay being about loud, but we were at Rio Chama which shows the games but isn't really a sports bar. In fact, we saw at least six women with fur coats on while we were there. (And they were not there for the game.) Our waiter was a Packers fan and kind of an asshole. Not about the Steelers, just in general. He asked where we were all from and when Will said that I was from Santa Fe, the dude looked at me and said, "and you ADMIT that?" Kind of an atypical reaction, but whatever.

Tomorrow morning I am running the Turkey Trot or Fowl Day Run or some such thing with my dad. I'm so not into organized runs these days, but this is a "fun run" not a race, and I hate to disappoint my dad. So I'll be there. Plus the entry fee is actually a donation to the Salvation Army in the form of canned goods so that's cool.

Will's got a super busy day tomorrow so after the run, you can probably find me knitting on the couch all afternoon.

Hope you all have lovely weekends!
