Happy Happy Solid Orange Friday, y’all!

Rascal Flatts — This Everyday Love 

Timely enough (since the concert is Friday), these guys have been showing up in my shuffle a lot lately. The show tomorrow should be good, as usual, and I still hope they play a lot of old stuff. Their new stuff is good, but their old stuff is best :)

Happy Thursday!

Justin Timberlake — Not a Bad Thing

And just like that, it’s halfway through the week already. I should take vacation and have a short week every week. (Ha. If only.)

Happy Wednesday!

John Mayer — XO (Beyonce cover)

I discovered this today, which shows how little I pay attention to pop music because (a) I didn’t know about its existence and (b) I didn’t initially recognize it as a cover of a Beyonce song. So, there’s that.

I’m back from vacation today, which is the most disorienting of days, especially after an extended period away. I feel like I have to think much harder than normal about things that are typically no-brainers. I’m currently struggling to figure out where I left off on this ongoing task. Oh, work.

Happy Tuesday.

WIP Wednesday! Yarn Along edition 
Whew. Finished that last big project right under the wire. This is an old picture from when I first started Elise, but since i’m travelling this weekend, I think i’m gonna pick this project back up again. It’s a good travel size, and a nice small project (for me!) that’s a breather before I pick up my next big one.
Also important for travelling: reading material. I’m right in the middle of The Silkworm, the newest book from J.K. Rowling under her pseudonym. So far, I’m really enjoying it (unsurprisingly, I flew through A Cuckoo’s Calling too).
Joining Ginny. What have you been crocheting or reading lately?

Old Crow Medicine Show — Wagon Wheel

Off to my cousin’s wedding tomorrow! On their RSVPs, they did something really cute that I (surprisingly) hadn’t ever seen before — they left a blank to write in a song that you would dance to. I put: Wagon Wheel (the good one), since we are on the same page about OCMS vs. Darius Rucker (sorry Darius). Can’t wait to celebrate Megan and Dustin!

Happy Wednesday!

Eels — I Need Some Sleep

So, the fire alarm for the building went off at 2:40 this morning. This is after it already went off Friday around 11:30pm. Either something is broken, or some folks in my building are complete idiots. (Because neither time was there any actual fire.) I think we need to band together as a building and go on a witch hunt for these idiots, because no. I don’t handle things messing with my sleep schedule very well.

Tuesday. Just getting through it. Naps.

Matt Maher — You Know Who I Am

I mean, who doesn’t need a little encouragement on a Monday morning?

Happy Monday!

FO: Yoda #2 (Encouragement Yoda)

image

I recently made another Yoda for someone who’s been having a stressful time of it at work (lots of deadlines & working weekends), in hopes that it would help cheer him up a bit. This was very much a last-minute brainwave, so I was working on him in bits in the morning before work, and during my lunch break, etc.

I hoped he would love it, but I didn’t entirely expect how enamored he’d be of tiny Yoda. I keep getting “action shot” pictures via text about all the hard work Yoda is getting done.

Inciting jealousy all around the office, apparently.

On a conference call.

Being awesome, per usual.

Standing triumphantly over a recently finished proposal.

He’s already asked for a friend for Yoda, either C3P0 or R2-D2 (I can’t remember which). I told him he might have to work a bit harder for another one :)

Scotty McCreery — Feelin’ It

We interrupt this regularly scheduled GMM to watch Scotty’s new video… 10 times in a row…

Happy Happy Friday!
