At the end of a long and slightly difficult day, I found a beautiful red envelope in our mailbox with my name on it. Inside was an even lovelier note - a thank you note. A handwritten thank you note, expressing gratitude for my help in growing their business. If I find something I like, I want it to survive and thrive - so I make sure they're my first stop when I need something, and point others in the same direction (if they go under, where will I get decent stationery?!). And I may go in tomorrow and see if they still have those cards. They're stunning!
The view from my seat at the new Arsaga's on West. I can study more easily at a coffee shop than I can at home - I think because there are less distractions. Not that there aren't random people and unpredictable music, but it's more calming than distracting, to me.
I got thoroughly exasperated with Kaona this afternoon while I was at work, so I field tripped across the street to Dark Star Visuals bead shop with an armful of yarn in quest of beads that would match. I ended up with a gold-streaked lichen green yarn and bronze beads. Maybe by the time I finish this (it's the Mohair Bias Loop - for once, I am following someone else's pattern. With modifications, of course ;) Kaona will be out of time-out.
At some point this evening I have to go walk, and I should do that sooner rather than later, before I run out of motivation. So farewell, where ever you fare, until I post again!
