Look at this derp. 
My nephew’s facial expressions give me life. 
Only 9 months and he’s already funnier than his dad.

James,

iamnotagoodman, a hat out of scraps?

WHAT AM I DOING?

I have so many scraps of yarn.
So I’m doing something about it.
Making a cowl neck/hoodie.
I saw a version of it on Pinterest and since it’s technically fall, I should get a jump on this, right?

But it’s 1:14am.
I should be sleeping in this bed.
Not sitting on it crocheting.

Someone stop me.

Somebody stop me.
I am bored and crafting all the things.
I am bored and doing every thing BUT what needs to be done.
Filing.
F I L I N G.
ugh.
Bleh.

Sketchy delivery

Definitely delivered to what seemed like an abandoned apartment building today.
Every single door and window I passed was wide open—the inside? Completely empty [the new management has been renovating].

I knocked.
Rang the doorbell.
Called the number on file.
Knocked again.
Called the store.
& started my drive back to the store.

Just before the freeway my phone rang, it was the customer. He assured me that he lived at that address and that he was in the bathroom and didn’t hear me at the door or on the phone.
So I made a u-turn at the next light and called my boyfriend.
He stayed on the phone with me [in my pocket @ the door] to ensure that all was well.

Much weirdness, man.

All is well.
But Dominos doesn’t have enough security in place for female drivers, yo.

Made a wreath out of hole-punch water colored scrapbook paper.
YAAAS.
Used the tacky glue atop the wreath wiring and placed each piece individually. When the two rows were finished I let it rest for a day.
The tacky glue doesn’t harden up too fast.

Then I used a hot glue gun to adhere the final (third) row.

Many much success.

Some form of hibiscus at the San Diego Zoo. 
Not only are they one of my favorite flowers but SHOOT, this thing is so gorgeous!
No filters or anything.

Finished hanging the tree canvases!
And did I mention that the Nerd Nook is officially underway!
There’s a love seat in the niche of my room—with Smeagol & Gandalf on the right and Thorin & Bilbo on the left.
DID I MENTION THAT MY areyoutryingtodeduceme Punk!Whos (Eccleston, Tennant, & Smith) and Sherlock/Watson PRINTS ARE LOOKING OH-SO BEAUTIFUL HANGING IN THOSE FLOATING FRAMES!?
All I need is a cute IKEA lamp to hang real low, some super fluffy pillows, and a bookshelf designed by my very own Brandon (he asked to be the drafter/builder—I accepted).

I parents gave me their queen size bed set this weekend. I have lived in this condo for over a year and never fully “moved in”.
So, once everything was put into its proper place, B helped me hang things on the walls. I have a lot of things saved up over the years, geekery, paintings, art in general.
It took us over an hour to only get eight things on the walls. And then after he left I hung up an additional two by myself.
What went up first? A framed poster of Thorin Oakenshield. Then Bilbo, Gandalf, & Smeagol.
The big dry erase board is now above my desk.
And the painting I did is 3/4 done (hung»we ran out of the proper hanging hardware). It looks so beautiful. I am having a proud moment for sure. Four canvases, two 20 x 30 canvases and the other two are 16 x 20 canvases. So this takes up a huge chunk of room on the wall.
The last picture in the photo set is actually of a cubbyhole that used to be in my room. It is now in the living room and houses my odds and ends of books, unfinished craft projects, candle things, pictures, letter & photo boxes.
I have been here for over year and I’m just now starting to feel at home.
The next step is to get my own living room and dining room furniture. So that when Renee moves out I don’t have to scramble and find those big items.
Anyways, not that you guys needed to know any of that, it’s more of an update on personal life things, I guess.

Sometimes a new fish eye lens doesn&#8217;t properly attach to your phone and pictures come out hazy and &#8220;imperfect&#8221;. But then you get a chance to look it over the next day and, to you, it is the most perfect memory ever. 
B, you serve me so well. 
Blessed am I to have such a beautiful friendship with this man. Walking in the Love of the Father, together. #manymuchblessed
