They’re real, and they’re spectacular.

I didn’t get much done today.  I mostly watched a Fixer Upper marathon on HGTV while goofing around on Twitter.  I did, however, get a strong recommendation for the new Adidas Ultra Boost running shoes.  I ordered some, along with a few other items.

I can’t wait to break the shoes in.  It got up to 62F yesterday, but dropped back into the 30’s today.  I had all my windows open when I went to bed, and it was 56F in my apartment when I woke up.  My cat was under the covers, so that should have been a clue.  I turned on the heat for a while after closing the windows.  Now it’s around 63F, right where I like it.  I’ve decided I’m not keeping this apartment when I move.  Yesterday, there was yelling in the parking lot of the building adjacent to mine.  There were police cars and a police dog apprehending someone who was shouting repeatedly that he wasn’t going with them.  It was scary.  This is the second incident involving police in a month or so.  When you add that to the cooking smells from whoever lives below me, it’s not worth maintaining.

I declined going to Denver this weekend.  I need some down time after NYC.  I’ll probably go this spring.  In the meantime, I’m going to work on a new quilt.  I’m going to do paper piecing, I think.  Once I find out what that is, and how it works.  I want to make a more traditional style quilt, but with modern fabric.  So it might require wearing sunglasses to view it, but I’ll still like it.  I finished the Cookie Monster quilt.

My lightsaber showed up in the photo, too.  I think it turned out fairly well.  I need to remove some specs of white from the color catcher I washed it with.  My stitching is a little off in places, but that was before I learned about measuring for my specific machine, not just the standard 1/4″.  The binding is black satin, and it’s the perfect size for the sofa.

Amy Lee of Evanescence released a new LP titled, Recover, Vol. 1.  I love it, and am going to listen to it on repeat until I fall asleep.  Again.  I can’t believe it as only about $4 on iTunes.  Granted, it’s exactly 4 songs.  But still, I would have paid way more.  I’ll probably buy it again on Amazon Music, just to support the artist.  It’s so good.
