I am nothing if not random, and nothing if not a constant attention whore, and nothing if not always looking for a new blog post idea, so I am stealing Kelli's post outline of this list to let you in on my life as it is, today, Really Random Thursday, 3/27/14
Making : After a few days of sheer hell spent making countless diagrams to the point where I wanted to put my eyes out, I whipped up most of a table runner yesterday that has been in my head all year. Nothing is more exciting than a full day of sewing and loving the result.
|Moditional Christmas tree
Drinking : Before 10am - gallons of tea. After 10 am until 5 pm - oceans of water. Happy hour - standing date with J Lohr and friends. (Fun fact - My father in law went to high school with J Lohr. His name is actually Jerry. Impress all of your friends at your next cocktail party.)
Reading: Quite a Year for Plums by Bailey White - picked up for 50 cents at the library book sale last weekend and worth every penny.
Wanting: To have a reason to use my Eiffel Tower fabric
Looking: Every day while out and about for any of the black bears in town that refuse to show themselves to me, but everyone else in town has seen them. Thinking of buying a whole mess of birdfeeders to lure them in.
|As always, you are very welcome.
In other words, just another day.
Wishing: I didn't obsess about stuff I can't change.
Enjoying: Watching dress rehearsals for Schoolhouse Rock and seeing how happy it makes my daughter to be on stage.
Waiting: And waiting and waiting and WAITING for the release of "This is Where I Leave You," movie adaptation of my very favorite book of all time by the same name starring my very favorite smartass of all time, Jason Bateman. I may die of joy while watching it. If it ever comes out.
Liking: The fact that I went outside without a coat on today and did not instantly freeze to death.
Wondering: When someone will finally come up with a sarcasm font. Observe:
"I really enjoy how emotional my daughter gets over her science homework." - ie, It is so great that my daughter loves science, wants to eat, sleep, and breathe it, and will cure cancer someday.
"I really enjoy how emotional my daughter gets over her science homework." - ie OMG, this child needs to go to bed before we both end up in the crazy house.
See how helpful a sarcasm font would have been to let you know immediately that Paige was in bed by 7:50?
Loving: How silly my girls are when they are not freaking out over science homework.
|I also love that they still enjoy being quilt models.
Smelling: I hope I don't smell. In fact, since about fifth grade my nose actually doesn't work well at all, which is more a blessing than a curse. But in any case, I am currently and usually am at any given time smelling nothing.
Wearing: Well, it's after 8pm on a weeknight, so pajamas.
Noticing: How crazy hot my husband is. He's no Jamie Fraser or anything, but he'd make the cut if my guild ever made a Hot Husbands of Squanicookies calendar. More importantly, he'd be totally onboard. And even though he's not perfect, he still makes me laugh and makes me happy after almost 19 years, so that must be a good thing.
Knowing: The truth of this statement used to make me say "Oh God please tell me I'll feel that way ever." and now it makes me cry a little because this was just yesterday, wasn't it?
|The Days Are Long, The Years Are Short.
Admiring: My pretty teal toes. Tis the season! Toes and Ovarian Cancer Awareness!
Buying: I still need a new Crock Pot because even after asking where everyone got theirs on FB the other day, I have not had time to actually go to the trouble to purchase one. Damn the other one for dying after 11 hard years of use.
Getting: Pumped to sew all the extras to Paige's dance competition and wondering why these things never come finished? For 85 bucks a pop, not only should there be no sewing left to do, the costumes should be encased in gold.
Feeling: Blessed that any of you cared enough to read this far.
