You’re going to have to forgive me about my lack of posting this week. The first half of it started off supremely cold and snowy. Which is great for Christmas cheer, but not so great for outfit pics (#bloggerproblems). I’m not sure how some of you brave those icy temperatures, because I could barely leave the house! I spent most of that time wrapped up in this here scarf/shawl while drinking way too much coffee and only slightly panicking about the holiday stress.
The weather finally turned around yesterday though! Of course that’s all relative. The high was 31, but compared to the days before it, yesterday felt goddamn tropical. And yes, for those keeping track, 31 is still technically below-freezing. But alas! With just a light coat and a single layer underneath, I embarked on a journey to finish my much neglected last bit of Christmas shopping. It was pretty successful, I must say… Though I’m still thiiiiiis far away from being done. Soon.
And that brings us to today. Today I decided to get all crafty and you know what? I am not really all that crafty. So I literally spent the whole day working on a couple things that I probably won’t actually give away. I get a little absorbed when I craft. I’m constantly trying to will my projects to look Pinterest-worthy and always slightly failing. Before I knew it, the light outside was completely gone. Which is depressing, since as I type this it’s still before 5pm. But the good news on that front is a couple days from now the days will start getting longer again. Woo!
Oh, oh! AND… James’s last final is tomorrow. I have to give a shout-out to that! I feel like he’s the last person I know still taking finals, but after tomorrow it will be like I have a boyfriend again. Nice!
Anyway, I think I’ve rambled on enough here. Hope your week is going swimmingly and that you are not stressing over holiday related things. Deep breaths, comfy clothes, coffee and/or wine. Those are the keys to getting through it!
