and the day after the chaos ..

one would hope for calm ... I googled calm and got this image ...

and peace -- I thought this to be appropriate .. it might be a sign but I'm all about ignoring signs these days.
I'm at work on my OFFICIAL day off .. projects.  Mail.  Waiting on electronic acceptance .. which is really slow compared to other years ...
I made it to my meeting in New Ulm last night -- I had the wrong time, I was an hour early (quit snickering -- I can hear you) ... so thankfully I had the iPad and a new book to read.  signs.  again ...
Back to work.

the end

the end.

it's over.

time to party.

or time to sleep in.

or time to clean the corners of my office
my mind.

thanks for reading my ranting and raving for the last 5 months ...

mr postman delivers!

retail therapy is a good thing.  and really good with a coupon. 1/2 yard cuts of Amy Butler, 3 different moda scrap bags and my block of the month (of which I'm officially 10 months behind -- not sure why I signed up for that gig) .. I even had a Coldwater Creek moment yesterday -- gotta get it bought before they go out of business!!!! 
Happy Sunday y'all.

tired but weird

  I know I'm tired ... but the yoga woman on TV this morning is doing poses to assist with hemorrhoids ... seriously, I thought I heard wrong and she's said it multiple times.  It's the Hawaiian diva ... and it comes out "hem mer roids" ...

  Must be time to change the channel. 

  Counting down the hours and the returns.  5:05 start times for the last 3 morning.  I must be nuts.

  Retail therapy this morning ... fabric is good!

(large yawn)
