Break Time



 
So one of my favorite blogs to read is Amanda at Crazy Mom Quilts...a link to her blog is in the daily reading list....any how she took a break / sabbatical from blogging for a month and it got me thinking ....
 
a time to rest / reflect / contemplate / re-charge
and well, I'm damn busy with the real things in life.
 
so, I'm taking off the month of March from blogging -- I'll be saving up the good stuff for April.  I do believe I'm giving up Wastebook (Facebook) also.  although, in a town with no local radio Facebook is our news station.
 
I'm hoping when April arrives -- the limited snow will be gone and the temperatures will be above zero!  Still freeking cold here.
 
Chill Out -- see you in 31 days.
Marie

words ...

 
yep, taped on my wall ... in the front room and my office
 

 
 also taped on the wall -- been a crazy busy week
 
 
 been taped on my wall since NYDay ... after the credit card went AWOL ...
 
 
my buddy Cameron finished his new puzzle in a flash ....
 


winter working conditions ... my new (old) lap robe ...
 


and my latest fabric acquisition -- Hawthorn Threads had "words" fabric and a lot of choices .... can't wait for this self imposed lent gig to be done -- I'm drooling over their selection.
 


procrastination

noun, verb or adjective

all 3 are perfect for Sunday's on 3rd street.


I procrastinated at home before I left for the office.  (7:00am).
I'm procrastinating on the nasties laying on my desk that need to be finished.

Procrastination = the art of gracefully accomplishing nothing.

so, back at it -- the projects await me.
(which includes a couple of cool pictures to download from my phone)

-11 with a -25 wind chill -- might have something to do with the procrastination issue.

a wee bit of snow and drama



Less drama has been my winter theme. 
So, last night -- made it home by 9:15 (which is late by my standards -- I started at 5:30) ... and promptly drove back to the office to shut off an appliance. 

So a wee bit of snow has fallen or is currently falling.   Seems to be a lot of heavy equipment rumbling thru the streets for a "wee" bit of snow. 

TGIF.

lent

okay -- don't laugh

I'm giving up fabric for lent. 

no, I'm not catholic -- it's not a Lutheran "thing" ....


I was surfing fabric on the internet while chowing down my lunch ... and I promptly closed the window  (quit laughing Mrs. H) ...

I did order some on Tuesday morning.




no laughing.
none.

well,


what more can I say -- someday's are just butt ugly.  actually today wasn't too bad -- the normal whining. 
 
 
we had one client in shock today -- they owed $190 ... the next one owed $40,000 and politely thanked us.  what can I say --
 
sometimes life is good and sometimes it is not
