behind on being behind

I’m having one of those¬†days/weeks/months.

The house shrubbery has gone secret garden, which is kinda normal for us,¬†because we are lazy gardeners and just keep saying¬†“overgrown and wild is¬†a style”.

..but we are having our house painted and¬†need to trim it all back. I don’t know if we just never thought that¬†we would ever need to paint the house,¬†because holy¬†crap, years ago¬†we planted SO MANY¬†baby crimson¬†barberry¬†..who would have thought that¬†the pygmy variety would grow up to have 6 foot long¬†attitude filled tentacles all¬†ready to rip your damn arm off!¬†faaahuck we suck at nature!

plus side the lilacs are in bloom ‚ô•

My Starting Point MKAL is still exactly laid out like this, zero cakes, zero knits and we are on clue three :(  ..worst yet, I keep looking at the spoiler thread and feeling guilty ..but not enough to actually start. (mostly because I peeked and now the mystery is gone) ..wonk

Still feeling behind in general with these,¬†because they took over 3 months to finish and now I’m wondering if this will be my normal sock making¬†timeline? ..ugh figures..¬†BUT YAY CUTE SOCKS!

I was trying to have zero stash accumulation this year ..this could not be helped tho.

How did I¬†not know about these mints for 80 some years!? I’m officially¬†addicted to grandma breath¬†and eating these like they are¬†my pac-man power up pills!
