The month of May was a nice break from amigurumi creations on the whole, which gave me time to stitch on a few cross stitch and embroidery projects :)

As you can see I read the rest of the Patricia Briggs series, which is good and bad because Silence Fallen was her most recent book so I have to wait until she comes out with something in the future. My bookworm mindset should have stopped while it was ahead and kept a few books unread. LOL

But with that said it does give me the opportunity to go to my bookshelves and make a pile of books that I haven't gotten around to because I've been at the library too much (is that even possible?!?) and have neglected what I have at home.

In other news that is really boring, I still haven't started working with our assistant yet. Our boss is focused on how we categorize things when I just want to get started and fret about categorizing once we have the data compiled for data entry, which is when you start getting into categories. Because in my mind that makes more sense at this point than fretting about the future data entry..............but I'm just a minion so my opinion is moot.

In exciting news, Kristina and I concocted a plan to spend some time out of the city once a month if possible. We are both stressed at our jobs and we don't have the time or money to take proper vacations so we have decided to take day trips to relax and de-stress.

Our first trip is on Saturday (weather permitting). We will be going to Oak Alley in Louisiana. You might recognize the name from Interview with a Vampire as it was where some of the scenes were filmed. While that is an interesting side note, Kristina and I are unabashed history nerds and love visiting museums and period houses when we get the chance :)

According to their website, they have something called the Plantation Parade because there are three other plantation houses some what near to Oak Alley. I'm not sure if we'll be able to see any others besides Oak Alley. It depends on how long we stay and wander through Oak Alley, but even if we don't get the chance to see the other plantations, it gives us future day trips :)

So what's up for the rest of the month of June, which is tomorrow (egads!). stitching because I'll be working on a few more amigurumis of some sort and hopefully getting through some books on my shelves :)

Until next time ^____^
