Our vacation

What he said.

Seriously, I will do a post at some time.


Vacation 2010: Prologue

And not a minute too soon.

I departed work today leaving many unanswered emails and voicemails, reporting numbers in a regrettable state, and my coworkers to deal with sewage coming up through the floor in our newly renovated building.

Yep, I’m ready for a vacation.

The folks I know on Facebook already know our destination, but for everybody else, I think I’ll leave it as a surprise.  Don’t worry, you only have to wait until tomorrow evening for the first leg of the journey.

Speed dyeing

Here’s a time lapse video of me dyeing the yarns I posted earlier in the month.

How I spent my Saturday

From this picture (taken by the instructor):

I transferred this sketch (also done by the instructor) onto Archers Rough paper:

And did this watercolor (my first attempt at painting EVER):

(name hidden to protect the incompetent)

Actually, Ramblin was impressed with my inaugural foray into painting.  And he’s good at it, so I suppose I have to take him at his word.  :)

Don’t worry, I’m not giving up knitting for it.
