And in the Real World Season 2014 Episode 1 with Kelley

I’ve been thinking about adding a new feature to our website so I could post about my non book life and Wednesday I finally got around to posting the page. So I am excited to post my first “episode” of my life’s adventures. I hope to post weekly but who knows… if the mood strikes me, I may post more frequently, or less frequently. I’m going to play it by ear. But I hope to post on Sundays and there’s no telling what I’ll decide to talk about.

For those who don’t know me, I have become a bit of a yarn crafting geek in the past year, relearning crochet in November 2013 and I took off like a cat with its tail on fire. (Yes I’m proud to be a crazy cat lady with three of my own and one foster currently so there will be lots of tales about the fur kids and cat references too, I’m sure.) Last year I made Christmas presents for pretty much everyone though I am still waiting for the photos they promised me of everyone wearing them. This week I discovered this really cool concept called a mood blanket. The idea is that I stitch to reflect my mood. It is supposed to be a row per day every day and at the end of the year I have a blanket that shows my personal journey. I’m doing granny squares instead so I’ll be doing them at least weekly instead of daily. I can’t wait to see what I end up with in December! #moodblanket

Well, Wednesday I left work at lunch time to go to the doctor for a nasty upper respiratory thing and my boss told me “don’t come back today because I don’t want it.” So after the doctor, I came home and I found a little time this afternoon/evening to do my first two squares of the year. Since we are in week three of 2014, I had a little catching up to do. I also got some not so good news about a member of my family’s health this week, which doesn’t exactly do much for my mood. Seeing as how I was feeling so blah, my squares reflect that in gray and brown. So here is my picture of my first two squares.
