a long but satisfying workday

homemade veggie soup


tova top pattern


Yesterday was long.  Long but good I suppose.  On Friday everyone at the office was planning to dress up for Halloween, but we all forgot except for Lissa, my intern.  Poor girl.  She was an adorable sailor though.  She stuck it out all day in her costume, such a good sport.  I admire that.  To make it up to her I dressed up as a pirate yesterday and wore my costume even in public.  I would have had a lot more fun if I had had a sword, but hey, what are you gonna do when it's a last minute costume?  (I had the eye patch from a few years ago when Seymour tried to scratch my eye out and I had to go to the emergency room.  He didn't really do it on purpose.)

Other highlights from the day include:  

Leftovers of this veggie soup, recommended by Lena.

Tea time and cookies in the afternoon, as per our studio ritual.

Sarkilahti trying to make Lissa wear a scrunchy and settling for
me tying fabric in her hair.

Going home around 9:30 and lying down with a hot water bottle
under my tired back while watching the end of Gossip Girl.

sounds like a good day - and i love that you dressed up as a pirate. i was wondering if that was a scrunchie or not.

For some reason I loose every single scrunchy that comes across my hands... I use pencils, random piece of leather etc.. but fabric?? Genius!
