Celebrating Life: Working edition?

The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate. ~ Oprah Winfrey

This weekend was fantastic weather wise in the PNW. Clear blue skies with temps in the upper 70’s and a breezy. Naturally, you would think we were out enjoying life in Ulysses. Unfortunately, I needed to finish up one project and get started on another for the day job. While I find it highly annoying when the day job cuts into my personal time, aka crafting time, I also know doing this prep work will make my work week significantly less stressful. I’ve decided to celebrate the fact that I have a decent job in which I’m well respected, and I mostly enjoy. Here’s to being employed!


I’m celebrating with a giant cuppa. Currently I’m loving decaf hazelnut cinnamon creme tea bags from Adagio tea and house blend black from Plum Deluxe. I’m also still drinking copious amounts of iced tea with my hario cold brew iced tea filters (I love them). Lately, I’ve been wondering if I could make my own iced chi tea latte with foam. My milk frother does have a setting for iced tea/coffee. I think I’m going to have to experiment. If anyone has a good recipe they love, please post it in the comments or send me the link.


Despite having to work some this weekend, I’ve made some progress on my wips. My African violet shawl is on the last lace section! I have about six more rows to go before the bind off. I was worried this was going to end up being more of a shawlette, but the lace section gave this some much needed depth.


My sunset cable scarf is coming along. Progress on this one seems less noticeable, but I am on skein two now. Just keep knitting!
