Thank Yous and Gift Making
Let's start with the awesome, shall we? On Monday this past week I stopped by our local florist to deliver some prints from the wedding of their bouquets that were beautiful. The florist has a photo album of weddings they've done and I loved looking at "real" arrangements. Imagine my surprise to receive a bouquet to thank me, thanking them. This world is full of good good people.
I finished my sweater last weekend and blocked it willy nilly. Only to try it on after two days of drying and finding out that the slap dash blocking is NOT flattering to my figure. Ahem. So I re-blocked the sweater on Tuesday using a measuring tape -- so far I love my sweater!! Now to weave in ends and do the photo shoot.
I've been Santa this week cranking out mitts for gifts that need to be done by this weekend (sort of self imposed deadline...). I am happy to report I think I'll be finished-phew!
Now for the eye update. I went to the doctor on Wednesday and unfortunately the steroid drops made my eyes feel fantastic and masked how dry they were and I lost some healing ground. So I'm still on the antibiotic drops and decreasing the steroid drops and doing lots of moisturizing drops... She said and I quote "these things take time". Ugh. I'm done mostly with my ranting and raving and complaining (who me??). I am diligently following doctor's orders hoping that when I see her in two weeks I'll have good good news.
When I am done with this treatment, I'm slathering on every single eye shadow and mascara I can get my hands on. I've been using only eye pencil and liner for weeks and my eyes feel naked. Imagine Boy George in his glory days, yeah, that kind of eye makeup :)
Anyways, I'm off to get stuff done around here. I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
Also my friend Tracey has opened up an etsy shop if you're looking for some handmade knitted gifts. Check her out!
