Not The Good Friday, but a good Friday anyway. Boy, thanks for all the purse thingy love! You guys are the best. This week hasn’t yielded any crafty excitement at all. I’ve been working on a few little things, but nothing is far enough along for show-and-tell. After goofing off around here this morning, I went to MeMum’s this afternoon and we watched a few episodes of Monarch of the Glen. Ms. Yummers recommended it to me several months ago and we’re really enjoying the series. Just the scenery alone makes it all worthwhile…and that’s not even counting the leading man eye candy!
Anyway, as you can see, I didn’t take Paul back to TheSecondChild last weekend. He’s just having too much fun with TheEmptyNestChild. And besides, TheSecondChild is fostering a kitty for a friend (she had him in her dorm room and got caught…oops!) until school is out. We thought we’d save Paul the trauma of a new kitty along with the move he’ll be facing when school is out. In the meantime, he enjoys watching the sunset from the patio widow with TheEmptyNestChild.
A few random things –
– Check out this cute quilt that Shawn is making. I really like the interesting technique she’s using…not to mention the cute fabric and the size of the pieces.
– What do you wear when you clean your house? I wear sweat pants and a t-shirt and look like a total slob. You must go see THIS adorable outfit. I LOVE everything about it and I’m hoping to change my ways. Thanks for the inspiration June!
– Here’s some really cute little posy pushpins that I’d love to make!
– Now, I’m going to whisper. Psst. Come closer. I just don’t get twitter. Call me a dinosaur. It just screams TMI (too much information), or information overload or something. What am I missing???
And finally, here’s a random pile of books in my living room. I’m hoping to read a little this weekend. Our book group has selected Geraldine Brooks’ People of the Book for this month’s selection. I loved her Year of Wonders, but for some reason I’m not really excited about this book. We’ll see. Anyway, totally by coincidence, Ms. Brooks will be in town on Monday night to discuss this book. In 17+ years our book group has only ever heard one other author speak and that was Barbara Ehrenreich speaking about her book Nickle and Dimed. That presentation was reasonably interesting, considering I thought her book was a bunch of (please cover your delicate eyes) Crap. I know Ms. Brooks is controversial in some circles too, but I have much higher hopes for her.
Tomorrow is siggy swap day for me. I must get going on those blocks or they won’t get done. Think I can knock them out in one day? Hopefully I’ll at least make a big dent in them. I hope you all have a great weekend!
