Krissie put up the first ReFab post on the last day of 2011 and started a great blog. She had big plans (post every day?) and the idea of the blog morphed over the years, but it was always a private-ish space where we could talk about personal things that didn’t belong on our regular professional (ha) blogs. I’m going through some of my old posts here now, planning on copying some to Argh so they’re in the archives there, and we definitely had some good times here. We’ll have more, we’ll just have them over on Argh and Drama Queen.
So thank you all for playing along with us for five years. We couldn’t have done ReFab without you.
Working Wednesdays have now moved to Argh:
Come on over . . .
Krissie and I are both swamped, so we’re shutting down ReFab again, BUT we’re moving Happiness Sundays and Working Wednesdays to Argh, and Krissie’s Monday updates to her blog. Krissie’ll post a good-bye notice tomorrow with a link to her blog. For now, here’s your link to Happiness Sunday:
The Happiness of Power
So I still don’t have power which is what happened to Happiness Sunday, and I’m not supposed to get power until Friday, but I am supposed to get eight to twelve inches of snow tonight . . .
I’m thinking about the Instagram thing and I think it solves our can’t-post-pictures here problem. I’m thinking hashtag #workingwednesdaypix because that’s really easy to remember.
I’m also thinking it’s time I bought a big expensive generator, but that’s another story.
So I’m still working my way through the house, but I’m making progress. Got a box of kitchen stuff ready to go to Goodwill (I thought, “Why do I need two butter dishes?” and then I thought, “Why do I need ANY butter dish?” and boxed them both. PROGRESS.) Clothes next week. I was inspired by a BookBub sale book, Dana White’s How To Manage Your House Without Losing Your Mind. I don’t think there’s anything new in there, but I’m liking it and I’m reading it at a time I need to hear it, so it’s good. I got way behind on the picture a day thing, but I’m going to try again starting tomorrow. I made stuff all those days, it was just getting pictures of it . . .
How did work work out for you this week?
One of the most important things about finding happiness is finding out what triggers it. The more triggers the better, of course, but one of my big joy-starters is socks.
I’m writing a book that has a lot of socks in it, and (thanks to help from the Argh people) I’m finding marvelous socks for the heroine to wear. My favorite so far is Cthulhu (another motif in the book) swimming while holding a pole that has the a puppet head of the Loch Ness Monster sticking up above the surface of the lake. Cthulhu is on one leg and and the puppet head is on the other. I went to look for a picture to show you, and they’ve disappeared from the net. I know they exist, they’re sitting on the dresser in the guest room right now, but as far as the internet goes, they’re gone.
All of which is to say, hold fast to joy or it goes. What kick-started your joy this week?
Since so many of us are getting rid of stuff or at least thinking about it, I thought we should check in. Also I just made twelve sampler squares with the wrong crochet hook and didn’t notice until the last round. I’ll be over here, beating my head against the wall, thanks.
What did you decide happiness should be this week?
