I’m an idiot I know. I have at least 10 ongoing stitching projects. In fact I don’t remember the last time I actually posted a completed project on the blog. I should feel ashamed but I am not.
Really I just like to work at more things at once. And if I get bored with one project I can switch to another one.
Here’s a more detalied picture of the project:
This project is actually pretty big and I am thinking of doing it in two parts; what I stitched so far I am thinking in making into a bookmark and the other part I am thinking of framing it after completion.
Summer is technically over, but it will be a while before we will have to take out our Autumn jackets. I actually can’t wait for the warm weather to just go away. It’s has been a very warm Summer and I am not one to like the heat.
But still, the Summer has been good with me. I am starting to believe that Karma has not forgotten me. I had lots of fun these past few weeks. Going out with friends/family, going to the gym, getting good feedback from work and so on.
One of my favorite outings this summer was going to the Zoo. It was my fourth time visiting the Zoo and I can actually say that I will never get bored of it.
This time I was actually prepared and had my camera with me.
I think I was more excited than all the kids there. I was looking at the big cats and the reptiles while the kids were just bored. It was really a shame because I wanted to stay just a bit longer and just enjoy those beautiful tigers but my company got bored easily.
I don’t regret this because I think I’ll go again in the near future and I will be with better company this time since Johnny is in town. And I can’t wait to hear the lion roar again.
After the Zoo we went to the park. It was very crowded being late in the evening but I still had a great time. I had ice cream, took some nice photos of the swans and just enjoyed the walk.
I also wanted to mention that this outing happened right after I got off from work. So let me explain, the day before the outing I did not sleep at all, I worked all night, got home around 8AM, we got ready and left around9AM. We got home from the Zoo around 14 PM. I got to sleep 3 hours then in the evening we went out again and then back at work till the next day when straight from work I took them to the train station then back home where I slept for another 6 hours or so.
I felt somehow lonely Friday. I went to work and for the first time I felt like an outsider. It was a weird feeling considering that general atmosphere there is pretty relaxed and friendly.
So I’m blaming my stupid brain for working so hard at making a big deal out of nothing.
And with that said I am now enjoying my 3-day weekend before my night shift. And Marlanu’ is enjoying himself as much as I am.
I must admit that we are a lazy bunch. I mean, all I did today was to knit and read “Peril at end house” by Agatha Christie. Not very productive at all, but after all it is the weekend so why not indulge myself in a little bit of mystery.
I was thinking to myself while I was knitting that in the past month I was pretty washed out and tense if I might add. These two emotions (if I might call them that) really don’t mix well. The wash out part comes from me not taking much care of myself. That’s not a good thing, I admit, but really who on earth could stand wearing make up in this heat?
With make-up during the summer I feel like the the wicked witch of the west and I have this wild urge to go on the streets and scream “I’m melting“.
So the washed out sensation must be from the fact that I don’t wear make-up while everyone else does. Well, at my new job they all wear make-up.
In a way I find it weird, at my old job I was the youngest and here I’m not the youngest and all the girls are pretty, each with her own style and personality. It’s like a fashion show, seriously. And I haven’t even mentioned the Chinese girls from the 18th floor who have all these awesome clothes and look impeccable.
Jealous? A little bit. But I would’ve been more jealous a couple of years ago. Now, I just wish to get my salary and buy a new pair of sneakers and an autumn jacket. Yup, I crave for autumn and the nice cold weather.
And yet I would not refuse another outing to the beach.
This summer has been good to me. I’ve got a new job, new friends, lost weight in a healthy way, still broke but hey we can’t have them all.
