Sometime yesterday morning I developed a twitchy left eyelid and it's making me crazy. Google-explanations include too much caffeine (one latte per day is too much?) and lack of sleep, which makes little sense because I usually get 7-8 hours. Whatever, I just wish it would stop, it's waaay irritating.

Friday night Melissa had her annual pottery sale and we went, I picked up something for my mom and mother-in-law and a little something(s) for myself. I can't resist the green glaze. She's also making some really pretty cake plates, I've asked for one for Christmas.

The rest of the weekend was a haze of driving to Covington to visit my brother, sister-in-law and niece, having a dinner with some of my favorite people and three little ones, movie watching (the 1933 King Kong, on our list), knitting, trip Joanne's (which was a dumb idea on a Sunday afternoon) and making a real Sunday dinner for the first time in weeks. I roasted a chicken and made an off-the-cuff apple crumble with four lonely apples leftover from various baking projects from the the last few weeks.

I did get a lot of knitting done, I finished the baby hat and the man-hat I've been working on. I also bought buttons for the Malabrigo Liesl, which is close to being done (at least the bottom is) and I'm almost finished with the cuff of a pair of mittens which is a surprise for someone.Thanksgiving is this week?! October and November have flown by. Christmas decorations have slowly been appearing around town. We'll drag ours out next weekend, we're contemplating a real Christmas tree this year. However, the thought scares me because the cats have not shown themselves trustworthy in the face a full-sized tree. We tried it once before and it was on the floor within 8 hours of being put up. I don't know if I'm brave enough to risk it again.

In other news, I leave for this lovely place in nine days: I'm really excited, although not about the plane ride, almost 7 hours of air time, eep. But I am really happy about seeing my friends who moved back there last year, going to Urban Craft Uprising, visiting Snoqualmie Falls, buying yarn and tasting a lot of delicious things. Love the Pacific Northwest.

The twitchy thing happens to me when I get stressed. No fun!

i have had those eyelid twitches for the past few months--it gets worse when i'm on the computer too much (sadly my job depends on all the blog reading...), when i'm stressed, or when i haven't had enough sleep. no fun at all!

the pottery is gorgeous btw
