(this photo has nothing to do with today's post, lol... Rusty so loves that window)
I did not sleep well last night, as is evident by my 6am blogging. Had I slept well, I would still be in bed for another 45 mins or so. Instead I was at Wegmans by 5:10am buying eggs, milk, coffee creamer, doughnuts, yummy crusty bread, carrots, cabbage, and a cornbeef brisket. The highlights of my morning trip... not a car in site, an empty store aside from the very friendly guys stocking the shelves, discovering that my peppermint mocha creamer is going to be available year round, and getting myself a cherry bialy. Yeah, so, early morning grocery store runs have their perks, I would rather not make a habit of it though.
I must say, I am feeling a little loony in these wee hours. Did I really just say peppermint mocha and cornbeef in the same paragraph? Those don't go together very well. That is the thing with me isn't it though? My *likes* rarely make a whole lot of sense. At least, not to others, they make perfect sense to me. Anyway.
I am not sure where I am going with any of this. I just kinda feel like chit chatting. Oh, Jacob came home sick from school yesterday with a stomach bug but seemed fine enough to eat non-stop by about 4pm, so I am sending him to school today. Makes me wonder if the nurse at school actually saw him get sick or if he was avoiding something. I brought that up to him and I got a very, what is the right word?, hurt... no, offended... of-course-I-am-not-avoiding-anything-Mom-you-think-I-would-fake-something-like-this answer. He did sleep for about four hours, LOL, so I'll chalk it up to more of a mental health day than a sick day. And goodness knows we all need those around here.
Jacob being home really messed with my bead making mojo (thanks for all the wonderful comments yesterday, by the way). I had a plan about what I had to get done and when. Carrie wasn't happy about getting a much later start to working than she had hoped. So, *I* took over and just kinda wandered around my mind with some ideas that were starting to form. I had fun spinning discs (you'll see what I mean in a few day) and the colors are my absolute favorite. And making beads to build a beautiful piece is all well and good, but not going according to schedule. Today, I will really need to get back to what needs doing. Oh, and what little I did do that I was supposed to do didn't turn out at all how I hoped. So, I am thinkin' back to basics for the Timeless bangle beads. Meaning simple designs in wonderful color combinations. Yeah, that'll work.
Ya know, I think I could sit here and go on for a while, lol. But I think it better not to bore you. Enjoy your St.Patty's Day, eat your cornbeef and boiled cabbage, and mind your pints and quarts. (Did you know that is what "mind your p's & q's" means? Yeah, it is an Irish bar thing. And there is plenty more useless information where that came from!) No green beer allowed.
