The last Burlington was yesterday, and here's what I bought, other than a Pyrex casserole in the pattern I like:
And a close-up of the pendants:
The wooden box and candy tin were $1.00 each. Everything else was reasonable as well. It was a good day.

I've been off all week. It's pretty much rained all week, too! And I was ambushed by a story that I'm still writing. However, I managed to get the Craft Room of Doom looking from this:
Although the other half of the room is still a mess and there's a bunch of fabric that needs to be put away.
While writing, I've been spinning silk. Yesterday afternoon, I glanced over and saw this:
It took me nine tries to get that shot. He was very patient!

Mom, Dad, Bekah, Matt, Chase, Em, Elsa, Jess, and Rick surprised me with a birthday dinner tonight at the restaurant where Jess works. It was tasty, and it was nice to see everyone!

I've been busy, hence the lack of updates!
Here's some of what I've been up to:

I moved some stuff around. The small floor loom now lives in the Green Room.
I've also been writing, and spinning.
This is five ounces of Shetland.

I seem to have neglected to mention that I bought a new vacuum cleaner, too. This stemmed from having to use three different sweeping implements to sweep the cat hair off one rug the other day. I was completely fed up.
I've had an upright vacuum cleaner since I moved here. I've never liked it, because it is really heavy and awkward. I've added a stick vacuum and a couple of others to the mix, but they weren't good on rugs. Eventually, I just used a plastic bristled broom on the worst rug to sweep.
A few weeks ago, I decided that I needed to buy a new vacuum cleaner, because the brooms were not cutting the amount of cat hair around here. My budget was under $100. I ended up with a Bissel Zing and also bought the extra pet hair attachments.
It is great! I am sending all of my other sweepers to the rummage sale except the non-electric one.
I've been cleaning today. I sorted through the stuff on the shelves in the laundry room, and made enough space for the mountain of boxes, packing paper, bubble wrap, and those air-filled cushion things that had overwhelmed a corner of the Green Room.
I also gathered quite a large pile of stuff; everything in front of the hutch (plus a few unpictured boxes) is headed to the rummage sale tomorrow (and already in my car.) I even sorted through four bins of notgarbage in the basement, and consolidated what I kept into 3/4ths of one bin.
Picture this corner completely piled with boxes:
Two large garbage bags later, and I feel like I actually accomplished something today!
