Tiny Things in this Work

Posted on 9, January 2007 by


First and foremost, before I discuss anything else, I must share this pair of sparkling sandals that caught my eye at Manolo’s blog a while back.

Okay, I feel better now. No idea why those little things keep screaming at me to buy them. Yes, the straps are skinny, the shanks fragile, and the heels undeniably pointy. Yet they beckon to me like the Sirens who called Ulysses. Unfortunately, the chances of them belonging to me are pretty slim to none at the moment. Must… Ignore… Blinding sparkles!! Yarn, bunnies, and books — please rescue me with your distractions!

This new year has been kicking me in the rear end. I am doing my best to make lunch for work, to walk a mile or to run two miles, to do more household “to-do” chores before knitting or reading, and not to eat out so much or not to snack on chocolate. Meanwhile, I have managed to destash some yarn, and hope to unload more fiber via projects and destashing. The new resolutions have taken me from Blogging, which I guess is a good thing. Thanks to Jocelyne, I now have an intimidating graph of my goals from the “Joe’s Goals” website.


A hidden reward is the photographing of things discovered during my walks. I have some photos to show from this past Friday and Saturday to check out.





Along with the scenic eye candy, there is fiber eye candy too. Here are two Red Scarves sent off to the Orphan Foundation of America.

The Dulaan Project also is getting a number of hats and a couple of adult-sized helmetliners.

Until next post’s discussion of the latest Bunnies up for adoption at PetSmart, please take care, and be mindful of the beauty within and around us all. =:8
