Weekend Update

Yes, I am well aware that I have actually missed the weekend by a full two days. Shush. It was a busy one. First, the hand-knit handtowels I've been frantically knitting were wrapped and given to their destined happy couple on Saturday (in one of the best weddings I've been to in a long time). However, I knit the last stitch at 3:15 for a 4:00 wedding, so there are no pictures. Which makes me sad, because the cotton yarn I used was really quite radiant (like the bride), and that's saying something because I rather hate knitting with cotton.

Now my hands are empty again, and it feels very, very strange. But, I have no good portable knitting just now, though I do have another project that is approaching done, so I should do that.

Also strange was 3 days without bento. I think the fact that I slept 3 hours on Monday afternoon is indicative of what happens when I has no bento: I eat junk or don't really eat. (Though I did gorge myself on black raspberries, which I had wanted to put in today's lunch, but I froze them yesterday to avoid the possibility of losing even a single one to mold, because they are so very fragile.)

Today's was a tasty bento, though not really much to look at. Maybe pictures a little later in the week. But tonight I have to go to the grocery store because we are very nearly out of any kind of foodstuffs that are good for bento (carrots are my only remaining veg, and I'm down to two lonely kiwis on the fruit side). It's peculiar how excited I get about grocery shopping in times like these, ne?
