I am just the busiest of busy bees lately. I also decided that since I use that phrase ALL the time at work, I'm going to felt bumble bees for my coworkers for Christmas. I make these cute little tiny bees out of mohair fiber with needle felting and they're so cute...or at least I think so :) I hope my coworkers will like them.
I spent some time at the Minneapolis farmer's market today and got a lot of produce. Pepper season is over so I got a huge bag of green and slightly colored bell peppers, some potatoes, leeks (guess who's makin soup!?), carrots, spaghetti squash, and my favorite part? GRAPES. Home grown concord grapes. When I have a house, I'm going to grow grapes because I love them so much. I also had a feel-good moment when I paid for another woman's grapes because she didn't have money for them. The man told me "You're a real example." I just hope that if something happened to me like that, that someone would be kind enough to do the same thing. It always makes me feel good to help other people.
I caught up last night with a girl from high school I was sort of friends with in school, but then we at least kept in touch after through commenting on statuses on Facebook and whatnot, whereas our "best friends" from high school have kind of faded away (still talk but barely). Her husband is National Guard and Neil is Navy, and it's hard to find people who "get it" (the distance and military girlfriend/wife thing) - we had a delightful chat last night. Hopefully those will continue :) Angela is awesome.
Short post today, but here's a song I really love about LDR's, very fitting for me and Neil:
