You can always tell when I'm on some kind of roll, when I stop posting. Usually I get all caught up in my crafting, cleaning, or whatever, and can't think about anything else. That's what I've been doing the last few days. Just keeping my head down, and keeping my nose to the grindstone, as they say. My quiet books are almost done for the Piper Barn Show. That's a relief to have them done a little early so I'm not stressed in the last few days. I'll be glad when they are done though. Really glad.
One of the things that is hampering my finishing my these blasted books is that I sliced my thumb yesterday with a knife! Can you believe that? I was cutting up lettuce and sliced the top of my thumb through the nail! It bled like no other!! And we don't have good bandaids either, so that was giving me fits. It's better today, but so, so, sore. It's just a follow up to when I snipped my finger with the scissors. Seriously people. Me and sharp objects do not go together.
The new high school schedule is throwing me off completely. I have kids walking passed my house during the day at all different times. I never had that happen before. Like these kids are in PE class or something, and they are going walking, but they are out there at all different times. Just like you used to know that you never drove around the high school between 7:30-7:45 in the morning, (just before school) or 2:45-3:00 in the afternoon, (just after school). Now, there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to the madness that is traffic at the high school. I take Tessa to school in the morning at the same time everyday, and sometimes, I can't get through there in a timely manner, and other days, there's no traffic whatsoever! It's just a little weird.
Well, my luck has ended and the fish tank needs to be cleaned again. I was hoping the fish would die before I had to do that again.
I'm hankering for a baking jag. I went to the store the other day and I came home with stuff to make Caramel Brownies, Banana Bars, and Chocolate Chip Cookies. People, I just love treats. So this morning I made the brownies, and I'll probably get onto those Banana Bars as soon as I get done with this. Yea for treats! Boo for calories!
When I go to scrapbook retreats, I always have a million projects going on and so I really have to focus to get them done. I go to bed late, I get up early, and I keep my headphones on so I'm not distracted by what's going on around me. Lately, I've been bringing all the Harry Potter movies to have a marathon watching them. So I got through all 8 movies, the 2 Hobbit movies, and one and a half LOTR movies. People, I kept my head down. But I will say, watching those movies has just made me want to have a reading jag and read through all of the Harry Potter books all at once. I'm feeling a reading jag coming on.
Of course, the need to have a reading jag, and a baking jag, maybe caused by the fact that it's been cloudy around me for about a week. Ugh. I do not like cloudy days. And here comes winter.
And that's it for today.
