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).
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:

Thinking about: my next fabric line
Eating (too much): Trader Joe's Sunflower Seed Butter
Wondering: How are you?
