Cue the Elevator Music

Just a quick update here at the World’s Most Boring Blog ™. Six days of employment left on the books. Still job hunting. Ugh.

Roof guy is coming Monday morning at 7 am (yikes!) to fix the gutters. I’m quite psyched about that. Aside from the early wake-up call, of course.

I was going to take yarn pictures and Ravelry sweater-stashes pictures today, but it was rainy and overcast all day, which makes for crappy pictures. So I turfed that to later in the week. School starts here tomorrow for all the neighborhood kidlets. Nothing else exciting to report.

For those of you who asked what I was going to do with my beach glass from this summer:

WeirdyPants suggested I take a look at Ikea for a glass container. Perfect suggestion! This one is full, but I have a second empty one. May have to sneak back over there to get a couple more for future beach glass.

In other news, we had a family of deer wander into our yard and (primarily) the neighbor’s yard earlier this week

Sydney was not outside, or those deer wouldn’t have lasted five minutes in the neighbor’s yard. We have "wilderness" immediately behind our house, so deer are pretty common 'round these parts.

Still trying to psych myself up to cast on the second SmurfKiller sock. Nothing else to report here. Less sewing that I’d like. Perhaps the sewing time will increase drastically once I’m unemployed? One can only hope.

KCool beach glass! Looks good in that container. The deer in your back yard is amazing. I mean the amount of them at one time. Hope the job front gets better for you!

You might Google sea glass crafts to find quite a few ideas on how to use your sea glass...some easy, some hard!

Yay beach glass! Is it weird that I wondered what that container would look like if there was a light in the middle of it?

Oh how I love Ikea. Good luck with your gutters. Hope all is easily fixed, especially with this rainy weather we've been having!

I like the jar o'glass!

Did the deer leave you presents in the lawn? Our Texas backyard heard always did.

Awesome jar. That'll look great on a shelf somewhere.

Awesome deer picture!

IKEA always has the most fantastic stuff. I love that style of container -- it's just perfect for your sea glass. I hope you're going to put it somewhere you can see it in the middle of winter to make you think of summer!

I had a container like that filled with shells I had collected for a number of years. Unfortunately, my cat knocked it over and most of the shells broke along with the glass container.
