Well, I’m Back!

Hi everyone, yes I’m back.

I’m sorry for not posting anything in a long time, I have a good reason for it. On February 24th I moved out of my parents home and into a new little basement suite with my boyfriend. It is our first place together and our first time living together, but so far I find things are going nicely. Even though I was told by many co-workers that moving in together would destroy our relationship and we would end up breaking up. So far we are still together and just making our new place look like a home for the two of us.

So besides just the moving in and unpacking everything, which sadly to say there is still boxes I haven’t unpacked, mainly because I really don’t know where to put it yet. I have been of course busy with that and there was about a week in the beginning where we didn’t have any internet and I personally don’t like typing blog posts on my phone. With no internet though I did have a lot of time for some crafting and now I finally have time to go on here and show you my progress on my projects. So now that I’m back and I have settled somewhat into living in a new place I guess I should tell you what I’ve been up to.\Luckily for me, I had the day off work so I was able to sleep in and since my boyfriend wasn’t feeling the greatest he called in and we got to spend my birthday together.

Before I get into my projects though I would like to say that on the 14th of March I had my 21st birthday. Luckily for me, I had the day off work so I was able to sleep in and since my boyfriend wasn’t feeling the greatest he called in and we got to spend my birthday together.

Now for most of my childhood, I have always wanted goldfish or a turtle actually I still do want a turtle. Anyway, the morning of my birthday, my boyfriend told me he was going out to get me a fish and an ice cream cake since he knows I like that kind of cake.

So about an hour later, with me getting enough time to finish the dishes and clean the place up a bit, he came home with two little goldfish, fish tank, a little plant, and a display rock. Now growing up I was a big fan of Dr. Suese books, Cat and the Hat wasn’t my favourite book, however, I decided on naming the two fish Thing 1 and Thing 2. A little weird, but there’s two of them and given the names they are full of mischief. IMG_0153The first few days we had them, they really didn’t swim around a lot actually almost none at all, but now they swim around most of the day and they must get along really well because they are always close by each other, whether that’s swimming or just staying still. I kind of thought it would be neat if one was a female and the other a male and they had little babies, I think it would be really cute.

Well, let’s move on to some crafting. I started a new knitting project since a lot of my crafting things were still packed away. It’s not a really big project, I’m just making a small shawl to go around my shoulders since they get cold all the time and sometimes I really don’t feel like wearing a sweater.

Here is what it looks like so far: IMG_0156As you can see, I’m not using any special pattern, just a basic knit purl pattern that I found on Pinterest. I haven’t worked that much on other projects mainly thing one, but I want to be doing an update of my cross stitch projects sometime this week or early next week.

Well, I think that is all I have for today. Happy crafting everyone! šŸ™‚
