Thursday Thoughts

  • I don't really make New Years resolutions.
  • Anymore.
  • Being a habitual list-maker, I just update my "to do's" lists for the year.
  • I have quite a few to do lists going all the time.
  • Home
  • Work
  • Kids
  • Crafts
  • Grocery
  • Decluttering - which is a secondary list to home.
  • This week I've been focusing on my crafts list.
  • I have 73 crafty things listed that I'd like to do.
  • This month.
  • I already smacked myself upside the head.
  • I've determined that I'm suffering from a bad case of Squirrel.
  • You know how a dog can be moseying along, sniffing the ground, looking for the next spot to lift his leg.
  • Basically going about his business with what looks like focused intent.
  • Then all of a sudden a squirrel comes into his sight and he's off after it.
  • Squirrel runs to safety, sticking his tongue out at the dog from high above.
  • Dog barks for a few seconds.
  • Then goes back to sniffing along.
  • Another squirrel bravely crosses the dogs path.
  • Dog is off and running....
  • That's me.
  • The "squirrels" I'm getting easily distracted by are new fabric.
  • New projects my favorite bloggers are starting or sharing.
  • Like quilt-a-longs.
  • This one by Elizabeth Hartman of the Oh Fransson! blog really isn't fair it's so gorgeous.
  • New patterns.
  • Like handbags. This one from Clover & Violet is one I "may or may not" have been stalking them to add to their shop for several months now.
  • Just when I realized my "squirrel" problem, and decided to stop buying, they go and add it to the shop!
  • Insert mean name here, but I like them so I only whispered it to myself as I clicked "add to cart"
  • Have you heard about World Book Night yet?
  • If you haven't RUN! don't walk over to their website.
  • Read about this fabulous movement to get more people to read books.
  • Sign up by February 1st to be a volunteer.
  • I will be talking more about it on my podcast in the next episode.
  • Which I'm recording tonight.
  • I added it to my "To Do for the Podcast" list.
  • But just trust me on this.
  • If you love to read like I do, you want to sign up for this awesome event.
  • You will literally be putting a book into at least 30 people's hands on April 23rd.
  • FREE!
  • Don't you feel like I just shouted Squirrel?
  • Hee hee.

  3. I simply wanted to post a note in order to thank you for some of the stunning recommendations you are posting on this website. My incredibly long internet look up has now been compensated with professional know-how to exchange with my two friends. I would assert that most of us visitors are really fortunate to be in a remarkable community with many special professionals with good techniques. I feel somewhat happy to have come across your web pages and look forward to tons of more excellent moments reading here. Thanks once again for all the details.
