Coffee & Yarn & Unicorns, OH MY!

Another night in Books-a-Million.

Trying out the Cinnamon Dulce Latte at BAM... ehh... I'll just have my Chai, thank you.

I'm not complaining because it's really easy to concentrate in here.  I mean I've gotten more work done on the tam for my neighbor in a few hours here than I have in a few nights at home.  It's almost done (hurray!).  There's been lots of frogging tho, but I guess that's to be expected when creating an original pattern ^.^
from my instagram @nadiratani
Today, work was a drag, lots of editing student-entered data on the computer.  But I was able to steal away a few minutes to read 'Happier at Home'.  It's shaping up to be just as inspirating (WTF does inspirating mean Caleisha?!?!  Sheesh, that's what happens when you start singing along with music while writing...) inspiring, I mean, as 'The Happiness Project.'  Let see, I've learned a few new words and I'm just getting into the first chapter. ^.^
  1. Lassitude- a condition of indolent indifference; languor or lack of energy
  2. Beleaguer- to surround or beset, as with troubles
  3. Jackdaw- a bird of the crow family that is noted for stealing shiny things
  4. Tableaux- a picturesque grouping of persons or objects, a striking scene
  5. Gimcracks- a showy, useless trifle
  6. Gewgaw- something gaudy or useless, trinket
  7. Prescience- having knowledge of things or events before they exist or happen
  8. Sitzfleisch- the power to endure or to persevere in an activity, stamina
And I'm only on page 38!  Woot for Gretchen Rubin's awesome vocab!!

In other news, I went thrifting yesterday and snagged some crafty bits (insert devious grin here).  I will write about them later when I have projects to show. I'm rather excited about my new additions, but I simply dont know where I'm going to make time for them... what with Handmade Holidays and this neighbor hat order.  But just the over-abundance of crafty ideas in my head makes me giddy happy. I just want to make things all day...

This is how I feel when I'm coming up with new crafty designs/ideas:
And YES, I googled 'unicorn rainbow out the butt'... no shame.
Ok... too much?? Oh well *shrug*

Well back to this hat. I hope you had a wonderful Tuesday and if you have Halloween plans, be safe!


  1. Yay! So excited you are creating a pattern.

    I've been frogging all night too! lol!! I'm trying out a new pattern and I swear there is an error in it. I'm gonna have to sit down with it tomorrow with fresh eyes and do the math and see if it adds up or if it is just me. *Le sigh*

  2. Haha! You seriously googled that?????!! That's soo hilarious!


    PS. Love your crocheting stuff! You're amazing!!!


Thanks for your comment ^.^ They make my day!
