Three days in purgatory.

I had jury duty this week.
Hours and hours of waiting. Hours of rotating between writing wedding "thank yous", playing Scrabble on the iPhone, and finally getting the chance to read When You are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris, all so I would avoid falling asleep in a room full of strangers. And the funny thing about all of it is that I'm not really sure what I was waiting for. A chance to be called into a jury for the second time (I got dismissed from the first case) just so I didn't have to sit in those terribly uncomfortable chairs anymore? Or the voice telling us we can go home and I can safely escape another day without going to an actual case which could potentially last into next week thus making me miss even more work without pay? Luckily I was released from purgatory today and need not go back for the last two days of my service.
I was completely antsy to be anywhere else but there.

However, some good things came of this. Today I brought some yarn with me and made this new scarf.

I usually make a new scarf every fall, but since I've been working on so many other projects recently it hadn't really crossed my mind yet. As for the other projects, I'm in the process of working on some comforting cold weather items for my Etsy store. Also, Three Bears has been asked to participate in a craft show in Akron on November 14th so I'm going to work on some things for that as well and post more information when I have it.
