I’m a procrastinator, a sewist, a dabbler, a reader, a baker, an over planner, a mama to many furry kids and I regularly play with fire.

I am taking the day off tomorrow ... sorta. I plan on visiting the land of GetErDone! Vehicle oil change, bank visit, clean my truck, clean the house to within an inch of its life (at least the bits I can get to), and any other little piddling thing I come across. I'm way behind on such things b/c I've been spending my weekends on the torch.
I make lunch everyday at work. Today's fare, ham sandwiches. When I opened the bread the first couple of slices were stale so I peeled them off and tossed them. The next slice had a a bigger mark and the next bigger still. I kept removing slices until I reached a gaping cavern of brown mark ... like a rotten mark in an apple ...
I wish there was a solution for Ferguson. First it was too much police action and now residents are complaining that it is too little. Almost no one (news) is talking about Mike Brown just about the looting and riots. I realize its complicated and wont go away over night but I'm unclear how any of this is making things better.
I have exactly four shirts that I like to wear. I tried to save some money last time I shopped and bought cheap and now those shirts are all shorter than I like (I still wear them, but I'm not comfortable in them). This morning I picked up step mom's dog and she, ahem, leaked on me. Trust me when I say its not going to wash out.
Dunc is at work with me, we have a 3:15 appt at the vet. His breathing has stayed at about 60 and should be around 25/min. His personality is intact so I dont think he feels very bad, but he isnt really eating. I dont like it at all.
Had a custom pony to do today and I was worried about the color. Golden retriever red is just not a glass color. So I chose what I thought was closest and worked it as cool as I dared (reds get darker the longer they are in the fire) and BOOM, nailed it!
Just finished book three of a series. The author ended it in such a way that book four would never happen. After the end the author writes that despite the potential of a cash cow series he ended it at book three because the story demanded it. I loved the series and after that remark I love the author even more.
Duncan (dog) was not coming to bed when asked but staying in the hall just outside the bedroom. When I went to check on him I discovered that he had exploded from both ends all over the living and dining room. He certainly does not act like he feels well, and his gums seem pale. I don't know if we should go to bed and check him
MAN makes me laugh. He had to run to the store for something and when he came home he was all proud of himself b/c he picked up steak and taters. Rather he picked up meat and taters. He bought eye of round 'steaks' .. Hey, it said steak on the label, right. LOL. now researching eye of round recipes. Got any suggestions?
Made my travel plans to visit mom and my grandma ... learned this morning that my Grandmother passed yesterday evening. This photo is five years old, not quite the last time I saw her, but close. I'm sorry I missed you Grammy Lynn, be at peace.
Just committed $750 for a plane ticke and car rental to go visit my mom. Money that would be better spent toward debt. She is already giving me guff over how few days I'm staying (4 + 2 travel days) and that I'm staying over a weekend (tourist days=traffic) and that other family members will want to see me which cuts into her time. Sigh.
Ok, I admit it, I'm a sheeple. If a cop gave me an instruction I'd follow it even if I knew I'd done nothing wrong. My assumption would be that we'd all figure out I'd done nothing wrong and eventually go our merry ways. MAN on the other hand would argue his rights and not follow the instruction unless given good reason. What would you do?
The latest progress in the sewer project is that tall stake you can just barely see between the fire hydrant and the neighbor's car. My guess is that it is marking the easement which begs the question, why mow all of that if I don't really own it?!?
The thing at the bottom is a bearing, it is worn out and does not spin. The thing at the top is what's left of the same bearing...beyond destroyed. The customer swears it just started making noise on Sunday. We failed to ask him what year!
Cleared up a banking issue, paid a medical bill and two business license fees, billed and shipped two custom orders, loaded three auctions, ordered a part for work, and took photos for shop listings. Nap soon?
