No turning back

There is no turning back now. The invitations are sent.

Today I got home to discover my first few RSVPs! How exciting! And they all accepted! I got to go to my list and check of names. I've been checking off a lot of things off the list lately. Photographer, DJ, Venue, and flowers! Check, check, check!

I have a new person to fix my dress, at no cost to me. Which is good, since I already paid. A trial make-up session set up. Things are coming along.

Now I just need to find someone to marry us....

Little bit at a time...

I'm working on things, a little bit at a time. That way it doesn't seem so overwhelming! Right?

Tonight I have addressed half of the invitation envelopes. Only 2 had to be rewritten, which I felt was good. They aren't all perfect, but neither am I. Minor flaws I blame on a fountain pen blob (which is caused by the scribe, but we won't tell people that).

I also made 20 jars of jelly over the weekend! A good start indeed! They are very nice looking. But I bought the only jars of that type to be had in town, so I ordered more in bulk from the maker. Oh, and I haven't tasted it yet....
And then I also plied 278 yards of Finn/Corridale mix. The colorway is Parkland and it is a nice purple/white. It's about a fingering weight. I haven't checked the WPI yet, as it's drying. I had mistakenly plied in the wrong direction. So I had to run it back through again, and faster to make it more twisty. I finally used the turbo setting on my wheel. It set up an impressive breeze...

So, parts have been done. A little bit at a time...

I'm busy. Work is crazy, house is crazy and extra-curricular are crazy. And I'm trying to plan a wedding. Who knew so much hassle went into to it? Making favors for the wedding... Guests are coming, the lawn needs maintenance, I need to make a dump run, my neighbor is cutting down a tree.

The cat needs to visit her new babysitter before my trip to Germany. O, and I have to plan for the trip to Germany too. Get the house ready for being a rental and slowly packing stuff away.

So many things to do on top of daily chores.

Screw it, I think I'll knit tonight.
