Since it's been a while since my last post, I thought I'd update y'all on all the fabulous happenings in my life.  This will be short because for the past 2 weeks or so I've been clicking.  You know that temp job I told you about? Well, I'm pretty sure that I mentioned it in my last post and well, this is what I'm talking about.  They call it clicking because that is all we do.  They load 50 attorneys into a large room with computers set up on folding tables and we read document after document and click the appropriate buttons.  It requires a license to practice law and the ability to use a mouse - it's about that simple.  Surprisingly, it's really not as bad as I had thought it'd be.  The hours are long but the pay is good and it really isn't all that boring because the  people I work with are really pretty cool and they break up the monotony of the whole thing.  Oh, and did I mention that the hours are long and my commute is insane?  We work 11 hour days and when you add on my commute (about an hour depending on traffic) on to each end, that makes for one heck of a long day.  So that is why I haven't found much time to blog lately but I think you are just about caught up.... No wait, I forgot to tell you, I'm moving.  Again? yes, but this is the real deal. I could live in this place for months and maybe even longer.  And I am super excited to have my own place again.  (My own place that I will share with 4 roommates.)

I'd stay up and chat some more, but I've gotta get to bed.

show and tell

I've had some requests that I get over my photo-phobia (which I realize is a sensitivity to light and not a disinclination to post photos on ones blog) and start posting some pictures of the projects that I've been working on.  So here goes:

Last winter, I took a weaving class.  It was a lot of work and I learned quite a lot.  For my final project I decided to make lace dish towels as a birthday present for my Mom.  Well, I bit off a little more than I could chew and in August (Mom's birthday is in June) they were still on the loom. And though they are now off of the loom and washed, they are still in one 6-yard long piece of cloth.  I still need to cut them apart and hem them, but I'm really pleased with how they turned out.  Here are some pictures I took while they were still on the loom.
