I am getting a pair of earrings ready to ship. These ones are in a little box because I want to make sure they are extra safe. Why these ones? Because they have a loooong trip. By Google Maps directions, just over 25 000 kilometres, and 15 000 of those are kayaking across the Pacific, with a stopover in Hawaii and Japan. Where are these earrings going?
Holy cow! I am so excited. I got the order when I was out and about on Saturday evening, and I wasn't really paying much attention. The following morning, I looked at my phone and saw notifications from my PayPal app, and some emails. I just about jumped for joy, but Rick was still sleeping. This weekend is a holiday weekend, so I don't think that the post office is open. I will head there bright and early tomorrow morning to ship them. The one girl that works there is starting to get used to my frequent visits. I think once I have gone a few more times, and I can see if she wears earrings, and what colours she likes, I will bring her a pair for being so awesome.
So, the room I am in... It is still the office, but we turned the desk 90 degrees to maximize floor space. But right now, there is a ton of crap piled up in a fairly unorganized way. Those drawers are FULL of yarn. There are some cones on the shortest drawer tower. There is some new yarn in a shopping bag. That shopping bag is sitting on the huge Rubbermaid bin that I keep my finished items in for shows. Basically, it's a mess. The biggest annoyance is that old mattress. As soon as it's out of the way, there will be so much more space.
I am getting some things ready for some awesome new stuff on the blog. It won't be for a little while, still, but it will be pretty awesome!
