And For Today...

Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday, you asshole,
Happy Birthday to you!

Another year older. Another year wiser. (Maybe several years worth of wiser this time, eh?) Another year ahead to get even better.

Thanks for including me in your growing process.

May the next year be even better than the last.

Random Things

Inspired by the crafty blogs of others, I would like to extend an idea. Leave a comment in reply to this post, and sometime in the next year, I will send you something I have made. I don't know what, yet, but it will probably be inspired by each individual. I can tell you that I won't even start on it until after the holidays. I will email you for your address, so if I don't have your email already please either include it in your comment, or send it to me via the 'contact me' link under the tagboard.

I did finally make a decision on what my bead project here at work will be. It's going to be a dragonfly in shiney peacock colors, with gold and ivory accents. I will probably make this into a hanging ornament of some sort. (My Yule tree decorations are in garnet red, purple, gold, and pearl. It should fit right in. I might add some blues and/or green... We'll see.)

Things with K are good. We only see each other once every other week, but what time we do have is lovely.

Things with D are also good.

The roomies did not get the house that they applied for, so the rush is off. I am still looking for an apartment, but not as frantically. Still... If I could find a place before Christmas, that would be lovely. Then maybe I could decorate my own tree for the first time in... Uh... Ever. I bought decorations after my first Christmas in my first apartment. Never used them. This year I was given a 4.5ft fake tree. (Thank you!!!) But, with no space of my own, it won't be used.

Noting the Obvious

I really must learn to ask for what I want.
I really must learn how to ask.

No sarcasm. No implication of jest. No biting. No suggestion that other parties are failing by their lack of ability to read my frigging mind.

If I fuck it up, just send me back to read this again, ok?

Busy Hands

It must be winter. I'm in craft mode.

I spent part of yesterday cleaning and doing laundry. Part organizing things. And... I spent most of the evening -- up until midnight, actually -- playing with my crafts.

I sorted through fabric and found remnants that had been sitting around. I'm making aprons. One for my mum, one for my best friend. Might make a third for the roommate, just so I can do one with a million ruffles, but we'll see how the first two go. The pieces are all cut out. I'll probably start on my mother's first. It's nice to use up some of the fabric I've had forever. The fabric for my friend's apron is actually something that I bought specifically with her in mind, but never found a project to use it with. That was several years ago. I'm such a hoarder!

I also started planning another beaded doll. She'll be a chakra doll, but I have to pick up some purple opaque seed beads. (Which is harder than it sounds. Why is it so tough to find purple?!) I brought supplies to work with me to start on a second doll, if I have time. Maybe during lunch. That one will be about two inches long. Teeny! I haven't decided on a design, but I brought a small selection of beads in my purse. Something will come to me.

What I really want to work on is a tree for D, but I've been having a hard time with it the last couple times I picked it up. Not that I am having trouble getting into it, but I think I am going to have to re-do some of the parts, and that's very discouraging. But... I'll get to it. It's important.

It's always (almost always) the same. Summer is social time. Winter is for crafting.

I love the flow of seasons around and through me.
I love my life.

Nothing profound to say just now.


Yesterday, I ate waaayyyy too much. I usually wear my jeans with a belt, because I've lost weight, and they fall off. Said belt is now on the fourth notch, where-as it was on the first notch when it was purchased. (Hurrah for progress!) Yesterday, I put the belt on in the morning at it's usual 4th notch position. After "dinner," I had to re-buckle it. At the first notch.


I was a little scared to put slacks on today for work. So far, I've been standing, sitting, bending, and all with no ripped butt-seam. In fact, slacks are comfy. Hopefully this means the belt will go back to it's accustomed notch when next I don it.
