Brad and Kelsey with the first fish of the day

Sunday November 16th was one of those extraordinary days where the weather, the friends, and the adventure came together to make a day of delight and wonder. Brad and Kelsey invited me to fish from their drift boat. We left their place around 6am and explored several options for the best waters. Picking a drift […]

Craft room project

ok….it is done for now. Still a lot of stuff in that room but at least I can find it all now. Shall we start with the embarrassing “before” pictures? How did that room get so trashed?

I have started again. For real. I am tired of looking at runners and feeling guilty; feeling like I should be out there. I feel better when I do. There is no denying that. It is all about making it habit again. And for that, Julie is helping. Hard to stay in bed when someone […]

Movies

I haven’t seen Appaloosa yet and still want to. Wall-e played today at noon at the Venetian and I missed it, dang, but Tropic Thunder is playing this week (one I gladly prefer to pay 4 dollars for) followed by the new Mummy movie which I also have not seen yet. Seems like these next […]

Thursday…ah, tomorrow is FRIDAY

Tired, but still got two table skirts, curtains, or whatever you want to call them, sewn. My machine needs a tune up and it is refusing to go in reverse. Dang. Do I limp through sewing 8 more sets and THEN get it fixed, or stop the process and then sew faster once it is […]

Hot and tired, and really grateful for Julie’s help

The project has begun. Bowflex room is currently unusable, piled high with craft room guts and gristle. A few loads to the trash, some stuff for good will, 7 of 8 tables together and a good start to the reorg have left me tired, sweaty, and thankful Julie was building tables while I motored around […]

Late Monday musings

Brad called…my friend, the amazing fisherman, says his friend the amazing fisherman (do they get exponentially more amazing?)took a group out to where we had planned to fish, and came home skunked. Not the same as getting skunked in cribbage, as fishing takes much longer than the average cribbage game and it’s not like you […]

Monday blues

It is raining but I am not fishing, sad as that is; I trust Brad’s fishing judgment completely. It is cold in the house but I want coffee – which means I have to get up and go make it….urg I want to organize the crafts room so bad, but it means spending $$$, time, […]

forks in the road

Well, by end of the weekend, a girl could have a sense of which direction she was interested in heading…or, she could be even less certain. It will be interesting, at the very least.

Off Days and dresses

Here I am, watching a movie, (I know, is anyone shocked??) and recognizing the patterns in the relationships on the screen. Don’t ask me how I made the leap, but I went from the movie and feeling kind of off, to the realization that I adore wearing dresses…they make me feel better, much like chocolate […]

Wow. I am tired.

I planned to go hang with Chris for a while. Chill at Bugatti’s and work my Sudokus…instead, I watched “Running with Scissors” which might be the strangest, and maybe one of the saddest films I have seen in a while. And though it is early, I am going to bed. In the words of Harry […]
