checking things off.

Today was a good day, despite that I had to work at 7:30 this morning. I feel like I got a lot accomplished, well kind of, but I did get to cross a lot of things off my list. After work I went and bought more felt in pretty fall colors so I can finish my leaf garland.

Then I came home and finally sent out a package to my dear friends Noah and Rachael, who got married in August.

Went to the Apple store and bought an new iPod shuffle! I had my old one for four years and it finally went dead on me. I'm not sure why, but I really liked the orange one, so I got that one. Good news is that now I can have music again when I run. Bad news is I have to upload ALL my music onto my computer again because when it got fixed last month they took everything off and I haven't put any of it back on yet, I hate doing it.

Since I finished my book, The Girl Who Played With Fire, on Saturday I've been dying to start the next one, The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest, by Stieg Larsson. So I borrowed it from my aunt today when I went to watch my cousin. I'm so excited that I didn't have to pay to buy the hardback, the paperback isn't out yet :(

Now I'm gonna spend the rest of my night cutting out more little leaves like these! And maybe read some more of my book.

Pictures of my completed blanket to come soon.

I'm starting the first one of those are they? For some reason, I can't get past the first chapter. Maybe I need to give it more time.

And I can't wait to see what you're making!!

Love you!!

Ya, the first one takes a while to get into, about 120 pages, but after that it gets interesting. The second and third one are a little more exciting too.
