Something Old, Something New

I moved into a nice new little place with my old roommate Sarah May.

It took us a few month to get all nice and settled in.

After careful placement of thrifted finds and fantastic grandparent heirlooms, we had a House
Warming/Holiday Party.

We served hot apple cider with rum and hot chocolate and peppermint schnapps, along with cheese and cracker, fruit and cheese plates.

It turned out really well and despite all the snow, a decent amount of people we care about showed up.


I have been so busy lately.
So much nonstop, but it is really good for me.

I recently picked up a second job working at a yarn store.
It is a very nice change and a wonderful group of people.
The environment is comfortable and fabulously creative.
I feel very fortunate to have this opportunity.

I got a part in a play called The Ninth Circuit, written by Robert Bruce Lindsay.
I start rehearsal on January 4th.
I will be playing the part of Wilma-
female attorney, middle aged, respectable, independent and strong
I am extremely nervous about this, but also very excited.
It will make winter go by faster and be a challenge that I am really looking forward to.

My band has practiced a few more times and we played a show in the middle of the street during a Holiday Parade and event. We played facing each other, even though I forgot half of my tambourine parts, it sounded pretty fantastic.
We will be recording a 7inch soon.

I will try to update with the things I make for Christmas.
