We’re in the very last few days of being in the Santa Cruz/Silicon Valley area this week. On Friday we fly to Minneapolis for a friend’s wedding.
Travelling by air when you live in an RV is kinda odd. Not because of the usual oddness, but because of the third member of our family: our cat. We’re fortunate this time that Alladin can stay in the RV and be pampered by our hosts and their three daughters. But if we ever have to fly out of Timbuktu and leave the cat behind, with no support network? Well, I suppose then we will discover how well Alladin travels by air.
John went into Santa Cruz yesterday, and I’m heading with him today. I have a laundry list of things I want to get done while I’m there, including a trip to my local post office, meeting up with a client, and stopping by the house.
I got my Ravelry invite early this week, and of course have been enjoying the site. Too much for me to process at the moment, but when I get a few minutes to breathe, I think I’ll be happy to add/organize my projects, stashes, patterns, etc. On Ravelry, I created a group for other full-timers who do fiber crafts; it’s called RVelers, if you want to join it.
I made a couple of purchases at apple.com last week, too. Apple’s website leaves a lot to be desired in the checkout department, but whatever. It only took me an hour after deciding on my purchases to finally fill out all the information and check out. What a pain! I bought two microphones (one for iPod, one for laptop), and a video game (Stubbs the Zombie– OMG SO MUCH FUN). I want to do more podcasting– with over 60 books read this year, I think it’s a shame I haven’t posted an audio book review in several months.
Tomorrow, John and I are headed up to San Jose for some work at the colo, and for me to work at a friend’s house and later in a coffeeshop.
And with that, I leave you with a picture of something adorable, which I crocheted up just the other day. The pattern is the basic birdie pattern from Bittersweet. I made this in dark green Sugar n’ Spice cotton yarn.
