--I couldn't figure out why my ring was suddenly tearing up my pinky finger, I looked down to discover one of the tiny diamonds AWOL and a prong broken (hence the torn up skin on my pinky). So I'll be ringless for awhile . . . I've been wanting to make a few "tweaks" to my setting anyway. I'm not sure when I'll get around to it, but in the meantime I do remain married even if my finger is naked. ;o)
--I was delighted to discover a "printer's drawer" on craigslist for $15. (It's a drawer used to store type for printers--before everything was done by computer and all) Plans for my drawer would be turning it into a spot to display our tiny nature treasures. I wasn't digging the cicada shells found lying all over the place this past summer . . .
--I'm slowly making my "fall to winter decorating transition." It's become rather involved as I find myself gravitating towards cream/taupe/black/burlap/glitter/pine cones. I'm not sure what kind of style that is, but I've been painting again and sparkling things up a bit. Every year I think "I love this!" and then the next year I do something different. Is that neurotic?
--I got my hair cut, pretty short for me, but I'm really enjoying it.
--I would love to share some pictures, but I'm not in the mood to upload things into Josh's computer--less than a week until mine should be purchased! Yippee!
--I've survived pretty well with limited computer access. I would love to tell you how sparkly my house is because of this lack of distraction, unfortunately I haven't noticed too much of a change. I HAVE been more on top of things, it would seem though computer distractions are not the problem . . . kids are. ;o)
--Owen has a yucky nose today (why I was not at church). :o(
--Jackson has been "getting his craft on" constructing pop-up dioramas and beading "Christmas necklaces" for the siblings. I love when he gets busy like this . . . much less refereeing of fights for me! ;o)
--I'm SOOOOO very much looking forward to a quiet Thanksgiving week, light school, very few activities (just orchestra rehearsal), and tasty food. ;o) The weather outside definitely hints toward quiet and cozy! Hopefully I'll have some extra time to join Jackson's ranks and get busy with some craftiness of my own. ;o)
