Sheepy GoodnessWell, I kept with my "no-spend" resolution at the Sheep and Wool Festival. But it was AMAZING. We only went for a few hours on Sunday, but had a wonderful time seeing the sheepdog demonstrations, and wandering through the vendors. Of course I saw lots of luscious yarns and buttons and wonderful things, but I'm the kind of gal that doesn't like to buy supplies unless they are for a specific project, so... but I did come away with a WONDERFUL souvenir/ housewarming present from my parents. They bought me a beautiful red/black wool braided rug... really amazing, and excellent quality. I'll take pics once I move it in to my new apartment and actually unroll it! Next year, we'll go for a whole day.
The other exciting thing that happened this weekend was me signing my lease! In 2 weeks (well, less...) I'll be moving into my lovely new apartment. :) It will be VERY cool to have my own place (well, Cricket's own place, but luckily she needs a live-in servant!) The apartment is on the second floor, which was very important to me- I wouldn't take one on the ground floor. Now, the complex is beautiful, and the area is safe, but it (unfortunately) only takes one weirdo who happens to walk by to change everything. Also, I want to be able to leave my windows open (with screens) as much as possible, including overnight, but that would not be happening on the ground floor. As it is, I figure if someone is going to climb the walls to get at my apartment window, then there's probably not much I could have done to stop them. ANYWAY, the apartment is right by the pool (!!) and has a lovely little tree outside the windows. When I was there on Saturday at around 3 pm, though, the apartment was getting pretty much full sun in spite of the tree, so that should be good news for my herbs.
I also saw X2 on Saturday night... incredible. SO good.
All in all, a great weekend.
For your Latin edification:
