Three Things Thursday ~ Jan 30th, 2014

Screen Shot 2014-01-09 at 9.47.34 AMI cannot believe that it is Thursday AGAIN! Because it is Thursday, I’m sharing three more things with you this week that you may not know about me. If you are interested in sharing three random tidbits about yourself I invite you to visit Heidi’s Head and check out Three Things Thursday.

1) I have been keeping myself busy this winter by crocheting (though I guess I mentioned that before). I am making a mood blanket, which is a year long project as I add a part each day for 365 days. I’ve completed 3 scarves, a pair of slippers and am working on a stuffed love puppy for Morgaine. I’m also making Morgaine a blanket of her own. I’m finding crocheting quite satisfying for the most part as projects do whip up rather quickly. There are only so many scarves and hats that one needs, though, so I may end up donating some or something. There’s certainly a need for warm clothes this winter.

Morgaine’s blanket. I am pretty sure that I hate it, but we’ll see what happens as I start piecing it together. Would have liked it if there was some harmony between the colours, but this is a stash busting project so yeah.

Completed scarf. So nice and warm. A matching hat will soon follow. 

2) I would love to learn to play the guitar. I’ve had one sitting around for a number of years now, but the kids have gotten to it so it is no longer in tune. Every so often I think I should pick it up, but I haven’t the faintest clue how to get it back in tune (I have a really bad ear, so telling me to stop when it sounds right is rather pointless. It will be something that I will absolutely do eventually, though!

3) I am a hypochondriac. I was convinced that I caused myself liver damage by using acetaminophen for 3 days in a row (at fairly high dosages) for facial pain. I spent most of last week looking at my eyes in the mirror to see if they were turning yellow. I may have drove my husband a little crazy. It’s only been in the last few days that I’ve felt truly certain that I was fine! I really shouldn’t turn to Dr. Google too much! Along with hypochondria comes germ-o-phobia (especially of the tummy bug) variety. I tend to breath a sigh of relief after 3 or 4 days of being homebound because I figure that any bugs we may have picked up while out and about would have shown up by then! I’m probably getting much better with both of these things, but there are still times when they can be a little challenging.

  1. I think that blanket will be lovely! It reminds me of Ian’s “100 Wishes” quilt – it’s just a mix-match of materials but they all look so nice together in the completed project. I’m sure Morgaine’s blanket will as well.

    I bet you can find an online guitar tuner and get your guitar tuned right up!
