My Week In Instagrams: February 15, 2013

Friday has arrived, and I'm halfway through my very short work week. I only have a couple shifts, and they happen to fall on consecutive days, so there is some sense of normalcy in my life right now. I'm currently battling a pretty lame could/sickness of some sort. I woke up this morning and it felt like I'd eaten crushed glass. Not fun at all.
This is what I've been up to this week!
  1. I downloaded Sims3 for my computer. It was an awesome deal, so I only paid $10 for it, which made me happy. I haven't played it much, mostly because my computer is quite slow, and I need to clean it up.
  2. Rick rented some movies for us to watch. In addition to these three, we also got Eddie, the Sleepwalking Cannibal, as well as Celeste and Jesse Forever. I really enjoyed Perks of Being A Wallflower, and I thought Hotel Transylvania was cute.
  3. I was fairly productive, and finished knitting three scarves. I blogged about these on Tuesday. I'm really happy with how they turned out.
  4. Winston watched one of the movies with me. He stood a few feet from the television, and looked up in awe. Normally, he is kind of scared of it.
  5. Megan of A String of Purls posted a photo of her wearing a half knit scarf on Instagram, so I had to do the same with the cowl I was working on. Go check out her blog, she's super cute, and knits some awesome stuff!
  6. Tuesday was Fat Tuesday, and Rick's mom got us some paczki to celebrate. I had a custard filled one first, followed by this apple one. Those are my two favourites, so I really had to have both.
  7. I photographed some items for my shop on Wednesday. I was hoping to get them all done, but Rick and I ended up going to Windsor to run some errands for his Dad.
  8. We made a few other stops, one of them being all you can eat sushi (which I neglected to photograph) and another being Starbucks. This was our pseudo-Valentine's date. We also made stops at a few other places, and I bought a pair of jeans as well as some yarn (more on this later)
  9. I worked last night. It was a pretty quiet night, be we had this awesome skull bottle returned to us. It's a brand of vodka which I found out is part owned by Dan Aykroyd.
When Rick and I went to Windsor, we were right near Michael's. I had a gift card from Christmas burning a hole in my pocket, and my favourite yarn was on sale. I picked up eight skeins of Homespun in all different colours. I've already started to use one of them (the light blue and white) for a neck warmer. I wanted to get mostly neutrals, but they were sold out of a lot of colours. These skeins bring my total to +16. And I have more yarn being given to me in the near future. Looks like I have my work cut out for me. I should stop writing and get to knitting!
Also, I picked up a basket and some lights to use for my craft shows at Value Village. I try to pick up things here and there to use for my shows and what not. I like to change my displays around and play with things.
My week was pretty great. Other than being sick, I really have nothing to complain about. How have all of you fine folks been?

  1. I have Sims 3 too, and I have new habit of playing at night, when I'm too tired to knit. It's silly, but it does release some tension!
