HAPPY THINGS:

1. Falling into the internet rabbit hole about Book Nooks shelf inserts. Inspired to make one. See samples (here).
2. Exploring colors to select for a crochet project. I have to pick out 10 balls of yarn.
3. Sitting under a steampunk goddess at Patricia's Green in Hayes Valley, San Francisco. This is Tara Mechani by artist Dana Albany which is described as a sculpture of a robot-like female Buddha.
