Do you ever feel like you have too much to do and not enough time? (Silly question. I’m sure most of us feel that way. Especially at this time of year.) Here’s a fun little app that might help. I put a link on my toolbar so that I can click it and check it out each day. I think the best part is crossing things off the list, but I may just be weird like that. Watch the 1 minute video to see how it works, then off you go. I like that I now have ONE To Do (TeuxDeux) list to work off of each day, instead of the little post-it notes that I continue to write for myself. Think of the money I’ll save in post-its. They may just go out of business.
I finished up another pair of fingerless mitts last week. I had Elf Donna model them (by giving Loopy a big hug) and then I wrapped them up and gave them to a good friend. She said that just that morning, she had seen them talking about fingerless mitts on Good Morning America, saying that it was “the” gift to give and get this year. (We are so WITH it, aren’t we?)
We got so many boxes in today that we could’ve built a fort. You know, if we were so inclined. Nothing too exciting. Just boxes of boxes from the post office. About 2000 of them today. But we DO have boxes of yarn on the way, too. Madelinetosh called today to say they were about to “inundate us with boxes”. Ditto with the String Theory gals and Hand Maiden, who has Mini Maiden enroute to us. So hopefully the next box delivery from the post office will bring fun yarn, and not just boxes of boxes. That was a rather disappointing (although necessary) delivery.
Can you believe that Christmas is next week? How did that happen? (I still have one knitted gift to finish up. More on that next week.) Just as an FYI, our in-person shopping hours will be different during the weeks of Christmas and New Years. We’ll be open WEDNESDAYS, 12/23 and 12/30, from 10 am – 1 pm. Closed Thursdays and Fridays, 12/24, 12/25, 12/31 and 1/1. We’ll be here answering phones and packing and shipping orders M/T/W of next week (Christmas Week) and M/T/W of the following week (New Years Week). Back to our regularly scheduled shopping and working hours the first full week in January.
