Wow! The past couple of days have been really long. Unending, it seems.
I worked the whole weekend at the ranch, and Monday too. Beth needed someone to pick her up at the airport, so that was me. I forgot how long the drive to Rapid is. The next day, I went to Spearfish, to help Betsy with her new computer, and then stopped into Aasylum. I couldn’t remember if AJ (my tattoo guy) left on Tuesday or Thursday, but I was hoping the entire time while working on the computer, and eating, that he left on Thursday.
When I popped my head in, he was there! So I got my tattoo yesterday. Erica joined me, and also got a tattoo. I left before hers was done, so I’m anxious to see it. She was about 45 minutes into hers when I started, and mine only took MAYBE 10 minutes. Getting my star fixed hurt so much more than my other tattoo. But I’m happy with both of them, and I’m glad I decided to get them done yesterday, so they’ll be healed before Florida.
Also, I got some yarn yesterday while I was in Spearfish, killing time before my tattoo appointment. I found the cutest summer colors in Lily Sugar ‘n Cream worsted weight cotton. I want to maybe make a baby hat for Kim’s new baby, because one of the colorways I picked out (“Sunny Sky”) is a summer-y baby color. I also got around to photographing my Knit Picks yarn (Wool of the Andes, “Williamsburg”) for my scarf. I have a lot of knitting to do. I can’t wait.
(Left to Right Colorways: “Over the Rainbow”, “Key Lime Pie”, and “Sunny Sky”.)
I also started on “The Shelters of Stone”. I finished “The Plains of Passage” a few days ago while I was at work. “Eat, Pray, Love” is still sitting, waiting to be read with a bookmark stuck at Part Two. I’m probably going to be reading it on the plane when I go to Naperville, or Florida.
Oh, and with the money I didn’t spend yesterday, my college fund got a little fatter.
