221: early equals on time

Yay! Thanks for all the lemon-love!

....................................................... 

As you know, Saturday I went to Boston for the Craft  Magazine party.
I got off the T at Porter Square and headed down Mass Ave to meet Karen at Simon's  Cafe. I was running a little late because there was construction in one of the tunnels, but I couldn't resist pulling out my camera to  capture this:

This may come as a surprise,  since  you know that I am a procrastinator, but I am rarely late. I am usually early. I dislike being late. Of course, things happen. Sometimes I am late  due to things beyond my control and that can happen to anyone. But chronic lateness? That frustrates me.  I think to be on time, you actually have to be early. For example, if a yoga class starts at 9 and I live 10 minutes away, leaving my house at 8:50 will make me  late. Even if I do pull into the parking lot right at nine, I still have to get in, pay, find a spot, etc. For me, yoga at 9 means be at your mat and ready to start at nine (or earlier)! Again, I  admit it, occasionally I am  late and I feel bad about it. Especially  when I have to  put my mat at the front of the class because there's no room anywhere else!

Ok, back to Boston.
Latte and scone at Simon's:

Yes, I did  feel like a total spaz whipping out my camera to take pictures of my food, in case you were wondering.

Catching up with Karen was great fun- talking about mental health, crafting and scones (whose connection can not be disputed).

Here's Karen:

It was funny how similarly we were dressed: we were both wearing summer dresses over pants with sparkly slipper-shoes. I wanted those  pink velvety beaded shoes of hers!

Next we stopped in at Nomad and spent ages drooling over every little thing. Somehow I managed to resist buying a single thing!

Oh dear, I guess I'll have to cover this in multiple posts - since it's time to get ready for work.

A few random bits:

Listening to: We're All in the Dance by Feist (on the Paris Je T'aime soundtrack)
Reading: Alabama Stitch Book by Natalie Chanin
Thinking about: my  next fabric line
Eating (too much): Trader Joe's Sunflower Seed Butter
Wondering: How are you?
