Ok, I couldn’t help myself, I am indulging in my favorite guilty pleasure as we speak. Buffy the Vampire Slayer, what’s not to love? I opted for season 2 this time, you know angry sarcastic girl sleeps with boyfriend who then turns evil…the normal. I should warn you now my thoughts are all over the place tonight, no focus over here.
I tried my new soap in felted wool from Joans Gardens @ Etsy today. I must say what a difference all natural makes. My skin was clean and soft and not super scented. I have this OCD thing about my skin being soft, you would too if you were me. Here’s why…..
My Grandmother was a Eucharistic Minister for her church and when people were sick my Grandpa would drive her around so she could distribute communion. There were many times I tagged along, I was maybe 10 or 11. Some Sundays we picked up this woman, I can’t remember her name but she looked like she might be cousins with Jabba the Hut and she had a really large mole on her face which naturally had a super long black hair protruding from it. She made me very uncomfortable. One day she grabbed my arm and rubbed my elbow and proceeded to tell me that if I didn’t start using lotion on my elbows that my arms would look like hers. The end result being that I lotion EVERY inch of me EVERY day!!
I lost half a day yesterday on Pinterest, I guess a lazy day once in a while is ok. Now that I can no longer can see the grass under the foot of snow we have outside, I have the itch to play in the dirt.I could live in that picture right now. It’s very pretty but I would never attempt to make something like that. This on the other hand, I will be making sometime this month. So clever…..
There are so many things I want to make or learn how to make, sometimes I go a little crazy. When that happens I also end up with a lot of unfinished projects and I don’t want that.
I did take my Christmas tree down yesterday and yes the bells were really rowdy. My daughter was helping me take the lights off of the tree, which led to “wouldn’t it be easier to buy a tree with lights?” My response “I like this tree and there is nothing wrong with it.” Her response “Dad’s tree has lights and it spins.” “Why would I want a tree that spins?” Has the new technology that makes thing more convenient made our kids lazy?
My son really did bust his butt on the driveway this week, if I was out there for 3hrs then he was out there for at least 5hrs. on Wednesday alone. The sent us home early on that day because it was so treacherous outside. The miracle van did really well in the snow, I was surprised. I pulled in the driveway and my daughter was outside playing with the dogs, she looked at me funny like why are you home? I had both hands on the steering wheel and I said “I’m alive! I’m alive!” Yes I am well aware of how I can be overly dramatic, the roads were really bad and I could barely see them through the snow. I did have a point before I got side tracked, oh yeah my driveway is reaaaally long and my son wanted to know how much it would cost to have it plowed. Last person that plowed my driveway got stuck in the ditch and didn’t leave for four years. We all need the exercise, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!
I need to start using a real camera when I take pictures in the house, my cell phone doesn’t cut it. My sister in law gave me that great shelf with wings, how cool is that? It goes really well with my flickering candle canvas. It’s nice to have everything put away, although I had a little shock this morning when I walked into the living room and the tree wasn’t there.
I have to start focusing on the indoor projects instead of wishing I could play in the dirt. Maybe I can use some of this time to plan the garden. Time management and I have never been very close, I need to work on that if I want to get ahead around here.
