Good Fortune, er somthin'

So, my fortune cookie says:

I'm wondering when this will be. My social calendar has been invaded. 2 more weeks of endurance. Two more weeks. What's two weeks? AHHH!!! It's better not think about it right kind of freaks me out a little bit.

Diversion #2

Have I ever told you how much I love my Zaccheus? I think I've only mentioned him that time when I first got him. He's grown quite a bit. I like him best when he's got big hair. BIG TEXAS HAIR. Going on a walk with him is hilarious. He's a scardy cat. He'll walk out of the door all happy and a stranger walks past and he'll hide behind my legs.
Here's a picture my brother sent to me. I wonder if he knew I was missing him today - him being ZACCHEUS of course!

Wednesday Word: making wednesday worthwhile

I realize it's Thursday, but I can't help posting a word.

The word for the MONTH is:

di·ver·sion: [di-vur-zhuhn, -shuhn, dahy-] –noun
1. the act of diverting or turning aside, as from a course or purpose: a diversion of industry into the war effort.
2. a channel made to divert the flow of water from one course to another or to direct the flow of water draining from a piece of ground.
3. British. a detour on a highway or road.

4. distraction from business, care, etc.; recreation; amusement; a pastime: Movies are his favorite diversion.
5. Military. a feint intended to draw off attention from the point of main attack.

Number 4 is the reason for posting this word. At work, we're down to the wire for our Annual Meeting. I'll take whatever DIVERSION I can get. At this point, I have to be pretty selective or I'll wear myself out and be useless for either work or play. Read this entry - under the dotted line. That's what happens when I pack it in full.

So, in my selectivity, I chose to go to one of the most awesome concerts last night! Like OMG, SO FREAKIN' COOL! Watch this trailer for the show. They are touring in the states and I'm so stinkin' glad I got to see them. When the show was over I kept hollering "ENCORE ENCORE!!!" I didn't want to go home. I left wanting even more!

A Delightful Surprise INDEED!!!

So, I'm really bad at taking pictures and posting them.

There are things that I want to show you, so writing it is like a commitment thing where I have no choice but to follow through. So here we go with the list:

  1. Craft Room Table. It is FREAKING awesome! Like the best, most perfect workspace.
  2. Sewing Desk. It's a desk that I bought for 15 dollars at a garage sale. It's super cute. I stripped it and painted it and bought glass knobs for it! (it's not exactly finished, but it will be VERY SOON!)
  3. Bias maker. I don't know if that's really what it is called, but OMG it's the best tool I have ever spent money on (other than my scissors) and it was less than FIVE dollars! LIKE OMG! Seriously, I saved so much time with that thing and it makes me so happy!!! And it makes my sewing look so much neater!
  4. Serger. CAN I JUST SAY - this is the DELIGHTFUL SURPRISE OF THE DAY!!!! So, I have my very own serger. And I've wanted one forEVER. Honestly - because it looks soooooooooooo cool! I have no idea how to use it. I will though, I will. It's the machine you use to keep your fabric from unraveling. I really wish that it was the super cool green one my grandfather had in his shop, but it's not. It's a white regular looking one, but cool nonetheless.
Last weekend, I lost my voice completely. I thought that I'd be able to work on projects and get better while I worked, but I was WRONG! I had no energy whatsoever. I watched movies, crocheted, read, slept UNTIL I REALLY COULD NOT TAKE IT ANY MORE! I am the worst sick person ever! It's pathetic. I whine because I don't feel good and also because I'm so completely bored!!!!! I know it's not supposed to be the happenin' thing...but I REALLY need to learn to sit still - or to be still...How they say in spanish: Tener Sosiego.

The one thing that I was happy I didn't miss while I was sick was the opening of the
Family Time Capsule! It was almost eleven years ago, Thanksgiving of 1997, that we made a time capsule. I was fifteen. There were lots and lots of letters from everyone. Some HILARIOUS and other really sad. It's strange to think that my grandfather was around. He had a letter in there too. The letter I wrote was mainly about how much I love my brothers and the description of my parents house. It also mentioned my crush from back then! That was hilarious. I'm certain that the time capsule idea will continue as a tradition. I'm excited about what the future holds and it will be nice to reminisce. Life is good - no one said it would be easy.
