a little bit of may crochet đź’•

A little bit of travel crochet in my favorite bag with my favorite yarn. Somehow I wonked up my foot on our annual Boston adventure ..blurg :/ But now that we’re home I’m basically living the old lady life in compression stockings & icepacks, 100% lazing on the couch 100% of the time trying to heal ..being all sorts of immobile, somewhat cranky and so very crafty đź’•

A little bit of sink crochet, finishing up some overdue wips in the brand new sink Jason & I installed and made work! ..and unbelievably yes, water actually comes out of everywhere it’s supposed to and not to toot our own horn, but it effectively drains as well! ..though true to form for these non-DIYers it was a comical absurdity of swears & errors đź’•

A little bit of baby crochet ..no babies, but shop samples and sweet as can be 💕

A little bit of granny crochet the potamus way, one of the very first softies I ever made and still an all time favorite 💕 

You know you were gone too long when crabby kiki does a faceplant in your lap just because she missed you that much 💕


finding comfort

It never gets any easier leaving her behind (especially mid butterfly) but this place is less and less foreign the more and more we come, her second home, the place where she is growing into everything we ever wished and hoped she’d be, the place of finding her own philosophies, making judgment calls and so many other necessary parentless firsts ..there is a slight ache being a distant spectator, hearing it second hand, but I know this ache would be here even if she was only 20 minutes away. this girl. growing up. almost 21.

6th trip, smoothest ever, clearly we are becoming accustomed to Boston’s peculiarities, Jason had zero swears this trip in city traffic (YAY Jason!), move in was a breeze..fourth floor with an elevator (YAY Lex!), although we are still caught off guard with the tough guy accents (which aren’t as common as you’d think, so they are just as first-time awesome every time you stumble onto one!)

coming back to the same places visit after visit, kind of makes it all a bit more lived in ♥ fried clams & malt vinegar fries for him and a place that knows the importance of a good pickle to bacon ratio!

..oh and of course there was yarn (I reached 25% off ..YAY Webs!)
