Happy Friday! Finally! Since Tuesday, every day I’ve thought it was Friday. It has been a long week!
First of all, I got a puppy!! He is super sweet, and soft, and very ornery. His name is Jamie and he is a 12 week old Golden Retriever. We got him last Friday, and he is really settling in to his new home with us. Our 7 year old Chocolate Lab and tabby cat are tolerating him. Jamie is very playful and expects that everyone will play with him! Usually it’s just me.
I’ve been wanting a Golden for years, and had been looking far and wide for male puppies. But my sweet husband found this guy and surprised me with a trip to pick him up! And it ended up being in the town next to ours, about 10 minutes from home. What luck!
Cute puppy aside, on to the links!
- I bought this Happy Houseplants embroidery pattern set from SeptemberHouse on Etsy. It is so cute! I am really looking forward to stitching these up. I love the mix-and-match aspect of it a lot.
- TriMet Etiquette: You Told Us What Makes You Cringe On Board. I used to ride the TriMet (Portland city bus/rail system) to work, and I definitely agree with these annoying habits of other riders. I think theses apply to any city that has public transportation. I know I’ve seen the same behaviors up here in Seattle. Keep your feet off the seats, people! And your backpack does not need a seat of it’s own!
- Post Punk Icons Reimagined as Marvel Heroes. This is so cool. I especially like The Smiths and Billy Idol.
- 7 Tricks to Stay Calm When Interacting with People You Don’t Like. I will definitely be trying some of these. I like the one that basically has you humanize the other person, and remember that just because you can’t stand them, they are a person, with feelings and people who love them. I can get wrapped up in my own feelings about someone and forget that they are just trying to make it through the day, same as me.

Have a great weekend! With the puppy needing so much attention, I haven’t been crafting at all! I miss working on my cross stitch project most of all. Hoping I can get back to that soon. Cheers!
