Hello, Still Here

I'm kind of boring these days. How come going to a job that stressed me out so much meant I blogged more? Actually, I was just talking about this with a friend, and she thinks there are writers who write when things are bad and those who write when things are good. I'm definitely a things are bad writer--you should see all the diaries and journals I have where there are four pages about the latest boyfriend I had broken up with. Then I get over it and stop journaling. Yeah, four days, I'm pretty shallow.

So that's one excuse. The other is if I turn on the television and computer, I sit here doing nothing all day. And my husband expects his dinner on the table when he gets home! Actually, he doesn't. But it is, and he's been calling me his fifties wife. The good thing is that all those organization projects I've been putting off because I didn't have the time or energy are getting done. Come on over. Look in my medicine cabinets! Look in my closets! Open the wrapping paper storage*! Still working on the craft room, but you knew that wasn't getting done in a couple of weeks.

When I have been stitching, I've been working on my birthday exchange partner's present, which I can't show yet. But I do have a little something to show. It's for you, well, one of you anyway... The piece above is Ink Circle's July 2007 Celtic Knot, and it can be yours to celebrate 5 1/2 years of blogging. Respond to this post only before I get up on February 27th, and you'll win the celtic knot of "garish"** colors. It'll be a little pincushion for your sewing collection.

Okay, those rotten bananas aren't going to turn into banana bread on their own!

* It's the storage space in the guest bed/couch, where we store the guest blankets and pillows. The pillows were crushing the wrapping paper tubes, so I wrangled them into a Space Bag.

** That's what the dude thinks. The colors are DMC 727, 734, and 3746.

Dude's wrong. It's not garish if you didn't use DMC 995.

Those colors aren't garish, they're vibrant. ;)

(apologies if this posts more than once - the comment window is giving me trouble)

I've been wondering about you! I understand exactly what you mean about turning on the tv or computer ... when I'm home during summer I budget my hours as much as I can. Glad to see your return to blogland.

I have a little kit of a garish letter "O" from the Book of Kells that I bought from the Trinity College bookstore on our honeymoon(It's still a WIP). I think your garish knot rocks!

I've always had a hard time managing my time when I've been unemployed or underemployed, and an even harder time talking about it.

Please enter me in the drawing for the garish knot.

I would have sworn I already entered your drawing, but I don't see my name. So, here I am again. Please toss my name in. Thanks!
