This and that.

(Still posting photos from the Las Cruces trip!)

This week is moving along a little too quickly for me. I'm getting things done, but not as many things as I would like! That's just how it goes sometimes, isn't it?

On Monday, I got a late start to the day because I got too caught up on the computer in the morning. The computer sucks up so much of time, it's something I have been thinking about a lot lately. Some of it is work, but a lot of it is reading weblogs, looking at Flickr and checking for FB updates. Fun, and sometimes inspiring, but probably not crucial to my existence! I was thinking maybe I should try to turn off the computer for a week or at least for a few days just to see what changes that might bring to my daily existence. But because of the work part, I can't actually do that. I guess I could try using it only for work, but I think once I am on the computer, it's hard not to take a peek at the other things. So I don't know what the answer is...perhaps a self-imposed time limit for time spent on non-work things.

Eventually I did make it to the post office and there was no line! Yee-haw! I was back home in the blink of an eye, ready to tackle laundry and the watering of house plants. I started a little crochet project that afternoon which turned out to be much more of a headache than I expected. I was still fussing over it at 9:00 that night. But I did finally figure out what I was doing wrong! Whew.

Yesterday after my morning run, I worked in the yard for a couple of hours. The back yard is finally all cleaned up and ready for planting. Of course all the weeds I pulled will be back all too soon. It's really bad this year and it makes me want to cry. Seriously. I hate pulling weeds. Sometimes it can feel therapeutic to work in the yard, but lately, all the weeds really make me want to cry. There are way more this year than last year and lots of new kinds as well in places that I haven't had them before. The elm pods are falling now too which means they'll be sprouting up all over the places. Ugggghhh. I am excited to get to the planting though! I should already have some flowers in, but we haven't had time to get out to the nursery. Hopefully that will happen soon.

That afternoon I dropped a couple of my felted pieces off at Santa Fe Prep for their upcoming auction. I don't know that it will really help business, but in the book I am reading, The Handmade Marketplace, the author suggests donating to auctions as a way of getting your brand out there. So I figure I might as well give it a go. I had never set foot on the Prep campus before. It's a beautiful school. Nothing like my high school back in the day!

After returning home, I spent the rest of the afternoon finishing up my crochet project (which I will show you soon) and reading my other book, Bloodroot by Amy Greene, in the backyard. It's so nice to be able to sit out back again.

Today holds lots of errands that I am not too excited about, but it'll be good to get it done.

And tonight? Perhaps an acoustic show downtown, we shall see.
