Many ups and downs last week; a highlight being a Mabon, mini-ceremony of just two of us in the park. I've also been able to become further reconciled to the reality that I may only sell a dozen or two total copies of anything I write. It really is absolutely fine. 'The Swan and the Seal' isn't yet available beyond Lulu, but should be at some point fairly soonish. I wrote a bit of new material for Defender of the Way while in Wenatchee, but haven't done much since (though typing in all of the edits took a while). I know it will all work out.

I'd planned to start getting up around 5:30 each day, do my 90 second plank and Pilates 100s and prior to starting work, spending some time at my altar and drawing a card from my Oracle deck to have as a daily focus. That lasted maybe 2 days before things got wonky. Well, I know what it is: I like to sleep in on my days off. But I still want to develop the habit of those pre-coffee mini-workouts and return to regular workouts of 3-4 a week. I know I'll feel better for it. I've also just been overindulging in general in a variety of ways and feel gross a lot of the time. I'll be trying to focus more on proteins and vegetables- something else I know future Kristi will be grateful for. It's just that present Kristi so often wants cheese rice or black beans with lots of sour cream or things similar.

I also have realized that going to Sewanee in November for a less than 72 hour trip just to sing through Godspell isn't a great idea for me right now, especially if I tried going solo. Too many ways that could go really, really wrong, especially having to rent a car and driving up and down the Mountain. I'm disappointed, but there's going to be a huge choir reunion in the spring with the retirement of Dr. Delcamp, who's been organist/choirmaster there for... 37 years. A long time. ;) Makes way more sense to plan that trip in April and maybe also spend a day or two in Nashville to show Evan another of my former haunts.

So I recently finished a tam-styled hat, and I'd never taken completed pictures of me wearing the Samus sweater that I completed last winter. So here are a few pics! Also featuring Taffy, the dog.

Thev and two recent-ish projects )

While I'm not a fan of the Thanksgiving holiday, I'm enjoying having two days off from both jobs. I'll be back at Panera Friday from 4-8; I suspect it'll be packed. I also will be singing at our Advent Lessons and Carols on Sunday complete with an additional Saturday morning rehearsal. I'm really not looking forward to it, which is a shame, since that's usually my favorite service of the year. I'm thinking of taking the next few weeks off and singing Christmas Eve, but without the drudgery of singing things to death beforehand. The person who's directing is doing her best, but it's become something I actively dislike, and that's just not good.
