When things get overwhelming at work, this blog is apparently the first thing to give. Producing my company’s Thanksgiving cards for clients was a big part of the stress (not my artwork — wish I could claim it).
If I spend 10 hours slaving away at the computer, can you blame me if I avoid it during what’s left of the evening? So until I recover enough brainspace to do more regular posts, here’s a snapshot of what I’ve been up to.
Taught myself to crochet…
And knit (not as successful, yet).
Cooked an Indian curry.
Sewed a secret project for a friend’s upcoming baby — more photos later!
Explored the Balboa Park cactus garden on a sunny Saturday.
Baked my family’s carrot cake recipe for Dan’s birthday, and shared it with friends.
Climbed Cowles Mountain with no trouble…
But had great difficulty hiking Three Sisters Falls (which were dry by the way — bummer).
Made (and loved!) a salad based on raw shredded brussels sprouts. My eight-year-old self is terribly concerned that I’ve gone off the deep end with that one.
Got a haircut.
What have you been up to this November?
