THE SPINSTER STITCHER RIDES AGAIN!
It's not quite 7am and my Jersey Boy is on his way home to see his mom. I packed him a cooler big enough to feed a small family of bears, wished him Bon Voyage, and sent him on his way.
There is a big long list of "projects" that I hope to complete while he is away, but if I'm honest, I am really looking forward to indulging in all of the secret spinster behavior that has been absent of late.
(Nothing too juicy, I'm afraid. It involves tweezers and nail polish and callus remover and a lot of talking out loud to myself...pretending to be Ina....or Martha....as I putter about the apartment doing this or that.)
I did promise myself, however, that there will also be lots of time set aside for stitching. My lack of time spent with needle and thread is really bothering me, but I suspect that the solution is rather simple: get my eyes checked so I can stitch AND see the TeeVee at the same time. My up-close prescription has apparently changed quite a bit, since I find myself doing anything near like reading or stitching with my naked eyeballs. This isn't a problem, but it means I can't see anything beyond eight inches in front of my face, and let's face it, Kevin Costner in a cowboy hat must be given full eyeball attention.
Yup. We fell down the Yellowstone rabbit hole, and I am obsessed. It took me a minute, but I finally figured out why I love it so...it's basically The Sopranos.
If you don't like violence...you might want to skip this one, Dearies. Life on the largest cattle ranch in the country is not for the faint of heart.
But then again, there's Kevin Costner.
In a cowboy hat.
My day has started. The agenda includes laundry, food prep, and planning. I need to break out my date book again and get stickering! There's not been much to record, but it seems a huge waste of crafty time not to sit and scribble in it and make it pretty.
Hoity Toity and I are going to have a looooong play date today as soon as everything is done. There was a tiny bit of progress, but nothing to blow your skirt up:
Happy Thursday, Dearies! I hope your corner of the world is wonderfully swell today and that you get to do whatever your heart desires. Never fear on this front...I've got my damn good for sustenance, Wint-o-green LifeSavers for the nausea (thank you nanapops!), and Stewey supervising it all. Cheers!
