It’s January 28th. I’ve spent the day trying to hack away at the pile of writing that is my master’s thesis. I’ve got 21 single spaced pages of results and discussion – some of those are pictures/figures/graphs – right now. I have a version of the literature survey from my transfer report that will need polishing. I have the methods written, just need the exact names and model numbers of some of the equipment and that will be done.
There’s hope! I plan to have this done before D’s birthday on the 18th of February. Actually, I should have it done before the 17th, because I’m throwing him a party that afternoon/evening. That’s 20 days. I can do this. The new supervisor has let me back off a bit on cramming in new knowledge – I think it’s starting to push out old knowledge.
What else. D and I got rid of my clothing shelves today. 10 years ago, I moved into the dining room of an apartment at university. As a dining room it had no closet, so I bought 2 sets of ikea shelves and used an old skipole as a hanging rod between them. They held my clothes (no dresser!) for 10 years. Yesterday we purchased a closet organiser and managed to fit all of our clothes into our really small closet, so the shelves are gone!
Now the wall at the end of the bend looks empty – it used to have the shelves, now it’s totally bare. It’s what you see when you walk down the hall, so we’ll have to figure something out, but it’s the end of an era. Bye bye shelves – I sanded and stained you so well, you survived many moves and many permutations of organization. I won’t miss dropping stuff down the back of you.
In knitting news, I’m working on something for my secret pal, so I can’t really say much about that. I have string to start socks for D when I’m done with the secret pal’s gifty, and then maybe it’s time to continue knitting for me! I’m trying to decide if I should do kepler as a raglan or not – raglan is so much easier to sew up but set in sleeves look much better on me. I’m knitting it in the round and I can’t decide if I want to do some bust shaping and if so, how to do it. I’m about 5 inches up from the waist band, so I’m going to have to decide soon.
Time for a kitten update. Ginger’s almost 4 pounds, I couldn’t get near the scale with Fred, but he’s HUGE. Well, huge compared to when we got him. I guess it’s time for a Ginger picture. Here goes…
I haven’t shown myself on here yet, so here’s D and my favourite picture of us from the wedding – well, this is the favourite picture that shows our faces… there’s a really good one of us walking away down the back at my parent’s farm, but it doesn’t show us. Maybe another day I’ll show that.
