In the mood: Today is a much better day. I went to bed very early with Red last night and woke up a little blue, but have felt encouraged as the morning has gone on. Getting out with the camera for a while and scrubbing down the sink helped somehow. I’ve “fluffed” the same load of laundry three times now and they still aren’t folded, however.
In the week: So much happened last week I didn’t have time to get it all blogged, what with the birthday boy getting some new computer games (including “Guitar Praise” which I can totally get addicted to–great alternative to Guitar Hero. Watch out, boy, I’m right behind you!) Click to listen to music.
In the creative: So, I’ll try to post about Fall Break later, but to the main gist of my excitement for this postt…we got home from fall break…took me a couple days to get back to blogs, I was like, four days behind on reading (gasp!).
I was catching back up with the “Week in the Life” project, scanning through some cool finished examples of the project on Ali’s blog, wishing I was that creative when, “Whoa! Hey! That’s my page!” I was so excited I would have totally dropped my coffee had I been drinking any.
In the review: What I love about Ali’s style is that it’s a great blend between human and modern. Clean, but interesting. It suits my style.
Don’t you love it when you find yourself in someone else? Someone said that is a definition of a friend.
Dare to be different! You might make a friend.
In the house: I am on a warpath with the clutter around here. I’ve started my closet in several phases this year and need to hit that again, got under both the kitchen sink and the utility room sinks. Aah.
Next today, is the phone drawer–the junk drawer will soon follow, I hope.
I hate it when things start feeling “too full” and crammed. I wonder if that’s what we start to look like spiritually when we take too much in and don’t give enough away?
Still “spills over”, but it ain’t too pretty.
Perhaps that speaks all around to staying “ordered”.
In the kitchen: I have a hankering for some chocolate chip pumpkin bread. I’m going to be hammering that out today, I hope. Mom got me a new Pampered Chef Mini Loaf Pan. I’m hoping to break that baby in with this recipe! I’m planning to make extra to give and have frozen for Thanksgiving.
In the holiday mood: I bought an updated camera last wk, identical to my old one, except for the increase in pixelation, which makes a difference in photo density that I’m loving. I love the size of the Sony Cybershot 5.2, now 7.2. I can steady it in my hand, unlike the new thin cams. I love that it stays right in my pocket for moments and trips. The photo above is certainly NOT one I took, taking it out of the box to be sure it worked since it arrived so soon before Christmas. (Well, I had to make sure it WORKED, didn’t I?) Well, okay…it’s going right back in the box. Don’t get all excited, you holiday purists (of whom I am one). Okay, so I walked around the house with it:
