The view from the Happy Chair on a cozy Saturday evening....
Supplies for the "as yet to be completed" Olympic project:
And here's the progress...
I really am enjoying this immensely, so even though the torch has been extinguished, methinks I will keep playing with this for a few more days.
My reading life is back on track. This morning I finished "The Goldfinch" by Donna Tartt. I'm still working it all out in my head, but I think I loved this book. Next up is either "That Part Was True" by Deborah McKinlay or "An Unnecessary Woman" by Rabih Alameddine.
I picked up the book about Zentangle thanks to Miss Susan of Plays With Needles fame. After reading her post about a recent family class, I went into a three-day obsessive frenzy of learning, watching, and devouring everything I could find on Zentangle. I completed my first one yesterday with simple pen and paper, so I imagine that once I get my hands on some proper materials, there will be no stopping me.
Have you read Miss Susan's blog, by the way? If not...take thee there immediately and prepare yourself for the most soulful, lovely, wonderful blog reading experience you'll ever have. You can find it here: www.plays-with-needles.blogspot.com.
Stewey is munching a Chewee while silumtaneously toasting his little buns in front of the fire. We took a nice long snoozy nap this afternoon, and he's been Little Mr. Cozytoes all day. Damn dog....sometimes it's all I can do not to just sit here and grin at him.
I'm going to pour another dietCoke, pop a blanket into the dryer to toast, and then snuggle in with some stitching and Sopranos.
What's on your agenda?
