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.
