Hi. I managed to survive my back-to-work jitters last week. It helped seeing on facebook that so many other people were experiencing the same kinds of feelings. Of course as soon as Friday came I was back in my space making stuff. I am also watching Friends on loop lately because something about that show is so comforting. I did watch a super great movie last week, Frances Ha. It reminded me of me and my friends so much. We are all slowly growing up and it's a hard thing to adapt to. If you haven't seen it check it out. It just may be right up your alley.
My rabbit is killing me with cuteness. Which is a weird way to die.
I don't want to sound braggy but I am really catching on to the ukelele. I love this instrument so much. I still sound like a little kid at their first recital but I'm okay with that. So far the only song I have been playing is Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah." It's such a melancholy song but I keep playing it very upbeat. I wonder if I can turn all rap songs into ballady ukelele songs. That could be what I'm known for!
Do you know that I have blond hair now? I do I do.
Saturday I was so grumpy and for no real reason. I also felt kind of lazy and run down so I did a lot of couch sitting and TV watching. I think the inactivity was making me even grumpier but I did keep my hands busy by making these pom poms.
And then today I finished them up and listed them in my shop! Not so grumpy any more! Just kidding, I'm still a little grumpy. I don't know why!
You can click on the pictures for details and to see what's happening in my shop. I've been sprucing it up as much as possible. I even dusted. Just kidding. I actually vacuumed.
By now you probably know about Phillip Seymour Hoffman passing away. I am truly torn up over this. We just watched a movie two nights ago with him in it and were talking about what a terrific and prolific actor he was. I was honestly surprised to see that he has only been in about 60 movies because it seems like he has been in every movie I have ever seen. Some people think it's silly when people get upset about the passing of a celebrity but I don't think thats fair. Their craft allows you to make emotional connections to them and even though you do not know them personally you may still feel like they are a small part of your life. PSH was definitely a favorite of mine and I always rooted for him. I hope if you feel the same way that you are finding some sort of peace in all this. Addiction is a horrific thing that affects more than just the addicted. I hate it.
On a lighter note.... I don't hate this swan planter given to me by one of my favorite people.
