An exceedingly modest amount of crochet after a big adventure

Today I got every little crochet done. So little, my progress could most charitably be described as exceedingly modest.

But even exceedingly modest progress is progress, and today, an the aftermath of finally finishing the written crochet pattern for a boho granny square, I looked through the crochet that had gotten “put away,” while I worked on the tote that ended up being my 2019 New Mexico State Fair Entry:

I had originally planned to make an afghan, but the time quickly ran out for me to do that, but before I set aside the future afghan, I had set aside a boho granny square bag, and I had gotten this far:

So today, when I had finished attending to a series of pet related tasks, I started poking around in the bins and that bags that house my many bits of crochet in search of the circles that were intended to be a tote.

Initially, I found lots of things that were not the circles I was looking for, but eventually, I found these two circles ready to be squared off.:

For whatever reason, I was more indecisive than usual about what colors to use to square them off, and while I finally settled on a green for the crochet circle on the left, I found myself looking through my yarn stash in search of the perfect color to square off the circle on the right.

But instead of the perfect color for that circle, I found several more circles, and finished one of those instead:

My hope is that tomorrow when the sun has risen on a new day, and I am a bit better rested, I will be able to find the “perfect” color a little more quickly and continue moving forward one stitch at a time.
