Had a great time this afternoon taking my grandson to the movies. See for yourself. Oh FYI we made the acquaintance of 2 big stars, Marilyn and the King.
Time to for spring cleaning, thin out all the unused junk & clutter from the last year.! It is so hard to get rid of perfectly good things. Things that […]
FEMA’s disaster preparedness campaign, had lit a fire under me [which would ironically, pose a disastrous threat to my safety, if taken literally.] Clothes igniting, as I ran around screaming, “I’m on fire, I’m on fire!” Those flames under my backside have lit a fire.” One pass too close to my drapes and the entire house
could go. Disturbing. I immediately downloaded the FEMA disaster readiness supply list
The Pigs Are Flying!! I have finally finished the long promised, illusive website which I have spoken of endlessly for months. Any second it would go live. But I realized finally the hopelessness of my quest. I lacked the most basic knowledge and skill needed. The advert for this template site was “Anyone could build a website in an afternoon”. “I’m an anyone, so why not?” I thought. Because no one counted on this anyone as so hopelessly beyond the simplest skills which even a 4 year old child possesses. Months and months have passed. Finally with endless hours of tech support, a miracle! The Pigs Are Flying!
In the movie, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory there was one particularity lovely child, you might recall, the adored Varuca Salt.Veruca knew what she wanted and she wanted it NOW!! I have to tell you I’ve felt a little Veruca-ish lately. The elusive website I’ve been working on for months was supposed to take one afternoon.
A few posts back, I mentioned an unfinished project I had restarted. Was I just having a little free motion fun? Or was I seriously considering this a legitimate quilt? Was this my guilty little pleasure, like some low brow TV show that you enjoy, but would never admit it?
The following week, when I heard a phone carrier sales guy say that they would be receiving a small shipment of iPhone 6eswas come in phones coming in on that very week. If you were in that line, you might be able to get one of those phones. Well I was going to get one of those phones! I immediately began to form a plan to ensure I got one. And by golly I was going be first in that line, make no mistake.
I flew out of bed when that alarm went off. Threw on some clothes, no coffee , no makeup or hair fixing, I don’t even know if I ran a comb through it , nothing. I just got in that csr and flew.The mob frenzy mentality had set in, and my “dignity”flew right out of the door. I was going to first in that line. I would need to be there at 4:30 AM, meaning getting up at about 3:45 A
Art Quilting Studio Magazine did a small feature on one of my art quilts, in their upcoming issue. It comes out June 1, I’m really excited to see it. One […]
My hummer, whose feeder hangs from a suction cup attached to my kitchen window, and I have a reached a working relationship. All the details and duties have been ironed out to the satisfaction of all. I will provide food, immediately when it is needed. That’s the entire arrangement. It’s simple. I provide food instantly and reliably. If I fail to live up to my side of the agreement, I am subjected to a sound scolding.
