Seriously, it was -30F in Brainerd today, and 79F here in Arcata. Granted, our thermometer is smack up against the house, on the south side no less, so might be a tad inflated, but still... It's freakin' January!
Record setting highs & lows on the same day; something is definitely up with the climate. But don't get me wrong; I'm lovin' the warm weather we've been having. Today I walked the mile or so into town with my friend Jaimie & her dog Zukka. Perfect weather for a stroll! I needed to go to the P.O. anyway, & Cole had my bike today (he found his had a flat when he headed to work this morning), so I was gonna be walkin' anyway. It was nice having the company. (Although I don't usually stop for so many poo breaks.) Couple more pics here & here.
Yesterday I decided it was time to clean off my 'desk', the workspace where all the COLORBOMB / Velma's World magic happens. This is the 'before' shot, and, sadly, the 'after' photo as well, because I only got as far as deciding to clean it.
It started with a conversation with rawfish & oriridraco over on Twitter. Seems like this time of year brings out the housecleaning urge in lots of crafters. Consensus was that my workspace isn't *so* bad; messy isn't necessarily a bad thing! Besides, with weather like this, I shouldn't be inside cleaning anyway, right? I'm all about the easy justification for lazy.
