Back to Work

This week has seen me working on a new cardi in decidedly unphotogenic black. Anyway, my camera batteries are dead, so no pictures of the beautiful yarn that arrived at my house this week either. (Sundara Yarn! Yarn Pirate! Yarntini!) Therefore, I give you Flickr favorites. Can't have a post without pictures.

I am not stalking Ashley. I swear.

1. Cloud Bolero 2, 2. Babette Blanket, first three sections, 3. thinkpink, 4. New Messenger Bag set, 5. Pleated Bag, 6. Glads Are In Season, 7. Yes, I have completely lost my mind, and thank you very much for noticing., 8. Untitled, 9. pinwheel of single socks., 10. O-Tomatoes, 11. babette-fours, 12. plumeria, 13. And now it's a series. (4/365), 14. pleated handbag, 15. evening clutch, 16. afternoon clutch, 17. Purse #2, 18. They Will Pry This Yarn From My Cold Dead Hands, 19. icarus_close-up, 20. Fingerless mitts, 21. Doll Quilt Swap I: received, 22. 155, 23. Meida's Mittens, 24. aunt betty :: texas star, 25. aunt betty :: hexagon love, 26. BTRS - Charming Purse, 27. America Vintage Apron, 28. coasters, 29. Untitled, 30. her heart was twisted and cold, 31. Linen Elisa Bag, 32. New fabrics, 33. postcard 2/2, 34. WIP (virginia alice's quilt) closeup, 35. I love these socks! Jaywalkers!, 36. Twin February Sweaters

Fantine still has not made a public appearance, since the weather has been a bit too warm for her. Hopefully, she'll soon be able to come out of hiding. I can feel fall in the air.

In bigger news, the carefree (ha!) halcyon days of stay-at-home motherhood draw to a close. Tomorrow, I'm officially going back to work. In honor of the occasion, I invite you to click the link and hear that rousing paean to the Working Girl, CAKE'S Short Skirt/Long Jacket.

EDITED TO ADD: Who says there isn't a benevolent God? I found a job, and a nanny, AND there is a new Radiohead album coming out in nine freakin' days. Life is good, people.

Hope you have a great day tomorrow, and I'm with you on hoping for sweater weather! Your working girl musical homage is much better than the one that came to my mind...Dolly Parton!

Heh--you are SO stalking me :)

Hope your fingernails shine like justice tomorrow. Use that machete to cut through some red tape, ok?

Hi five! I start my new job tomorrow as well. Though, with you having taken your bar exam an all? I'll bet it's at the opposite ends of the economic scale...still though, I love Cake.

Good luck, though as you are fast, and thorough, and sharp as a tack, you'll be awesome.

Congratulations on the new job and nanny! Here's to lots of good things for you, including more thinking that you're not stalking Ashley (because even if you are, it's probably a good thing).

Good luck going back to work. As a committed stay-at-home mom, I have to say that starting to make my own money again (in my humble, part-time non-corporate yarny way) has been very fulfilling.

Bring home the bacon, girl!

Good luck with the new job and whole going-back-to-work thing. Lucky for you to have a new Radiohead album to soothe any stressful moments.

Best of luck in your new endeavor! I start a (very) part time job next week. After 14 years of being out of the workforce, I'm more than a little nervous!

New Radiohead woohoo! The cool part is that you can pay whatever you want for the album. How's that for even more great news!
