enjoying right now

::my new Lisa Leonard necklace. I love this heartfelt, handmade jewelry. Wearing it just feels "personal" somehow. It is extra special that the children's names are stamped on the back.

I have to be honest--I love Lisa's style and I want more of her work. Look at this beauty. These would make great gifts . . .

::flowers brought to me at work last week by Ken and Rainer. And then they took me out to lunch. How sweet is that?
::these little drawings that Rainer is bringing me constantly now. He churns them out!
::a finished knitting project! This is big news. I started this snake in March--I kid you not. I was so excited to learn how to do increases and I loved seeing the snake's tail form, so why did this take me so long to complete? The body was really boring to do after the increases were over and you have to knit 4 feet of it before you can do the head. I found myself rarely picking it up. Nonetheless, I still want to go forward with my knitting and still want to book a private lesson. Must get on that!
::very much enjoying this boy enjoying the snake.
::this lipstick, found in my drawer at work. This is a simple pleasure because I haven't had a Clinique lipstick in a very long time so it is a nice surprise. I brought it home because I always apply lipstick at home in the morning but rarely have a chance to at work. I'm sure that's why I lost track of it . . .
::and I love the look of the birthday garland that is still hanging in the window. It is so festive and it makes me happy.

The snake turned out adorable! I just knitted a snake scarf myself but ran out of yarn after about 3.5 feet so it's not overly long. I could figure out how I wanted to do the eyes so I'm glad to see yours. I'm planning to finish it as a Christmas gift (with a matching hat) for my oldest stepson.

The necklace turned out beautifully. I ordered the very same necklace and it doesn't even look half as good as that one.
