Sometimes, I feel like I just need to shake my brain out – empty it of all sorts of odds and ends to free up some space! Today is definitely one of those days!
I got my second (and final) dose of the shingles vaccine this week and can I just say that I am glad that is over with! 48-ish hours of feeling meh was not what I needed this week, but I am really glad that I don’t have to worry about shingles! (now if only some other worries were as easily relieved!!)
I watched and knit my way through two nights of debates this week (this was a huge boon to knitting as I am racing through my Screen Door. I have 5 repeats to go to the DECREASES! My takeaway thoughts on the candidates… night one I was pleasantly surprised by Julián Castro. But, night two was owned by Kamala Harris! Wow! She seriously rocked it! I know there are still miles and miles to go, but this is a very promising start!
The outpouring of support for Ravelry this week has been inspiring! Or, perhaps it is better to say that I am inspired by the outpouring of support for and the inclusion of BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ members! Is it perfect? No – far from it, we still have so much work to do to in making sure everyone feels welcome and like they belong, but this was a huge step in the right direction!
Also in knitting, Thea has a new pattern out this week and she is donating 50% of the pattern proceeds to RaicesTexas until Sunday!
I think Sewing Hacks might be my favorite thing but I was especially wowed by this week’s hack from Grainline Studios!
Finally, in the colossal fail category – this weekend will find me grocery shopping. Yep, that’s right in a grocery store the weekend before a major holiday. I am entirely blaming that damned shingles shot that I will be a member of the shopping bedlam!
I will also be treating myself with a little visit to JoAnn’s as well – they have a crazy sale this weekend and sometimes you just can’t pass up a sale, right?
There you have my brain dump – what do you need to get off your mind before the weekend starts?
