Post Holiday Catch Up
Artist Down!!!!!! I got an boo boo!!!I cut my right hand (yes I am a rightie!!) washing dishes. Of all things, right? I couldn’t be building something or over glued and had to rip it off. I had to be washing dishes. BF thinks it was a way for me to get out of doing them (over the last few weeks I’ve been making an effort to willingly do the things I despise). Six stitches later, I am in pain and laughing at that. What has this experience taught me? 1.) Yes, I do have a high threshold for pain, but when combined with my own blood, I’m so not good. 2.) Those bottle sponges are worth while, I will purchase one this weekend (I know why not now, I’ve been ordered by the Doc no to wash dishes.) 3.) I never realized how much I use my pinkie!!! I can’t write, so I take it I can’t paint. But you know how strong willed us artistic types can be, I’ll probably have so many collages done by the end of this week. Will post!!! Turkey Day Well. I had a wonderful holiday. How about yours? I spent the holiday with my BF and his family. Why was it so wonderful, you may ask? Because For once I did exactly what I wanted to do. Normally I let guilt push me to visit every family member I possibly could. And then end up at home crying because someone has said something completely uncalled for. I believe I come from a family that I really do not fit into or gel with. But part of that is because we (my sister and I) were pushed away by everyone in their own little ways. Except for my Grandpa, who growing up told us they were joking and told them to stop. Now, he just tells them to shut up and look at their selves, PRICELESS…… Today So now that I’ve completely caught you up on the holiday happenings. On to the next holiday… I am so not ready for this!!!!! I am creating most of my gifts. My most creative venture is going to be what I’m making my friend Evelyn. I can’t say what it is because she just might decide to drop in and read one day. I am also baking. My younger cousins asked me to bake this year. Our grandma used to bake every year for everybody in the family. Everybody had their own set of bags, not tins, just you everyday zip-locks in piles according to household favorites. I’m making chocolate chip bars, cherry almond granola bars, oatmeal raisin, and at least one more, anybody have an idea?
