I hate waiting. I should have worked these past two days because I've driven myself crazy.

  • 1. waiting for my sewing machine to be repaired

  • 2. waiting for the quilting and scrapbooking books I ordered from Amazon to arrive

  • 3. waiting for various house rental people to get back to us

  • 4. waiting for various puppy people to get back to us

  • That's right, we've decided to move our long-term plan up a year and get the dog now. This means moving to a bigger place, so we're looking at houses to rent. So the dog will have a yard, our living space won't be splitting at the seams, and we can live closer to work (we work about 5-10 minutes from one another, but about 35 minutes from where we currently live). I'm very excited about this, but I'm also a member of the "now" generation, so I have very little patience.

    In the meantime, here's a wreath I've finally finished (I started it when we were still in Philly, so at least 2-3 years ago).

    And the catnip sprouted a couple days ago, so here's where it was on the 2nd. (I didn't take a picture today, but the plant life is abundant in one catnip pot and the grass is starting to look like grass. Sparse grass, but grass nonetheless.)

    Your nut wreath is lovely, so even. I hate waiting too, sending you patient thoughts.

    Your wreath is bee-yew-tee-ful! So gorgeous! Is that ribbon from your wedding? I remember the pattern for some reason.

    To quote Inigo Montoya, "I hate waiting." Do you think we're all ADD because of soundbytes and TV and video games...or is everyone just taking their sweet time?

    Tell us all about the puppy!! We're looking into getting one next year, after the wedding madness.
