I’ve been feeling somewhat impetuous and unsettled lately. I tried to funnel this energy into being productive, so I did a little bit of work decorating my living room. I sacrificed a large chunk of my finger to tissue flowers, and I bought sheer curtains for the windows. While I still have a bit left to do to two of the walls I am very happy with the results so far:
Ignore the crafting mess on the table….
Also, that sign above my bar started out as a simple cardboard box:
Which I then slathered in chalkboard paint:
And finally hung it on the wall with a ribbon and two sticky hooks.
I still have a lot of work to do, and I have barely even begun on the back rooms, but I am feeling quite good about the progress I have made.
I had been wanting to get my tragus pierced for about a year, and kept putting it off. Yesterday I felt like it needed to happen soon and today while at the mall I walked into Metro and had it done. I love it!
It is 19 days until the Shelton Relay for Life [you may donate here 😉 if you feel so inclined] so I had better start planning my costume.
Finally, I shall leave you with a little thing I wrote the other evening:
Eyes drooping my pen pauses–
I know I shall quickly fade.
What words are the best words
to squeeze out before unconsciousness
In this moment all goes blank
and I find the only words
It’s a losing gamble to be sure
but maybe next time
my words will be important.
