Space Filler

Today has been a flop, so far.

I haven't accomplished most of the goals I had set for myself on this lovely day off. Instead, I have spent the last long while in front of this very computer screen watching videos on YouTube while crocheting a seat cover for the "new" stool at the book shop.

What I had truly meant to do today was write a meaningful, thought-provoking blog post about how I've become a border-line shut-in. I'm simply not taking advantage of all of the neat places in my neighborhood. Not only am I neglecting the great friends I already am lucky enough to count as my own, but I'm also missing out on meeting some of the movers and shakers on the block. I'm not seizing my days! Ack!

Now, it's just past three and I have to get my socks and boots on for some work in the community garden. Our hoop house is up, and we're having a plastic pull today to tighten it up and harvest some of our winter greens. I'll attempt to take photos.

Today wasn't a complete waste, though. I made two loaves of bread to get us through the weekend. It's a tasty mix of of white and whole wheat, which depleted our flour stock dramatically! Sean and I are headed to the farmers market tomorrow morning at Meridian Mall, so maybe we'll stop at the Co-op and buy more flour while we're on that side of town.

The seat cover I'm making is a hideous pairing of neon-ish blue and bright, bright green. I'm a novice crochet-er and my yarn stock is made up of cheap, clashing colors that do little to inspire. The green and blue temper one another much better than expected. It's going to be just right... if I can make it fit right.

Time to flop the laundry and hit the road. It's warm enough to ride our bikes!
