Buh Bye week

This is one week when I am not unhappy to see the weekend coming up. I have felt fairly crummy all damn week and I am really delighted to have that behind me. I am not an unhealthy person and I really do forget how miserable even feeling a little off can be. Now I remember and ugh. Let's not do that again.

I finished all the squares in my afghan last night.


I did not pick these beautiful colors. I just followed the pattern created by a talented color artist in England.

Next comes the border. One row of each color in this order:


Looks like I have enough of each left to circle around the squares one time each.


Instagram is helping me with my separation project. The latest update to the android app makes it far more complicated and confusing to post so I've contributed my last bit there. I'm actually done with the app itself which is liberating. I do my viewing of the feeds and stories from my laptop browser where, at least for now, there aren't any ads and it's easier to see an enjoy. When they fuck that up, it will be the end. Meanwhile the sub reddit aww is helping when I want to just scroll through cute stuff.

I think the couple across the hall from me are splitting up. They moved out a lot of stuff yesterday but not much furniture. Clothes and boxes mainly. And neither of them were doing the moving. They had kind of an ad hoc team of people, not professionals, led by an older woman - mother or grandmother, probably. I hope they are ok.

Every time I see someone moving in or out, I'm always so grateful it isn't me. There were years when I loved moving - leaving the old and venturing on to the new. Now I feel more like been there, done that, got the t-shirt, nothankyou.

And speaking of moving in and out of here, still no sales! This is wild. The home inventory in Seattle is experiencing record lows. But condos are just not moving. At all. It's the oddest thing. This is the longest stretch of no sales I've seen since 2000 when nothing sold for years. There are four for sale and five for rent and zero for takers. And it's been that way for months. So glad I'm not in that mix.

The sun is out now but the weather peops promise it's not for long. We have umbrellas as the graphic for the next six days. Everyone will bitch and I will wallow. I love feeling of being snug in my house when it's chilly and rainy out. It's especially fine with the memories of summer hot still working on me.

Plus, much nicer to crochet the edges of a heavy-ish afghan if it's chilly!
