Craftiness takes a back seat

Monday, November 20, 2006

Every now and and then I get possessed by my creative side of my brain and all I want to do is make things and be crafty. Spools of thread make my head spin with ideas. Fabric gives me goosebumps. An empty canvas gives me chills. I have had a long dry spell, but now it's all I want to do. I hated working today, because I wanted to paint. And I love my job. Usually. So I'll work away this week and hopefully get another rare moment of spare time to make some things that I am hoping will turn out great, so I can set up my blog shop (joking. kind of.).

As far as my day went...here are some random conversations I was engaged in:

Mid-day (with my son):

Son: We were practicing for our Christmas concert today. If you come to the concert with ear plugs in, you won't hear much.

Me: Why would I wear ear plugs to your concert?

Son: Why not?

Me: Because I would want to hear what all the children are saying and singing.

Son: But if you sat in the back row, you wouldn't hear anything.

Me: Well, even if I did, I bet that all the children will be talking and singing very loudly.

Son: Well then, you'd better bring ear plugs.

Later in the day, at my parents house...

My dad: Don't let your kid step on my cat. (This is his semi-joking way of speaking).

Me: Why not? (My semi-joking response).

My dad: How would you like it if I tried to step on him? (My family is weird, ok?...)

Tonight: work meeting

Man at meeting (all-male meeting, well, except for me, that is): And now, perhaps the lovely young lady to my left might have a question to ask....

Me: Speechless.

More crafts: coming soon....

    I have heard similar things from my father, Cathy, so it isn’t just your family that is weird. Your son seems rather insistent on the earplugs. Maybe he’s trying to tell you the whole class is tone deaf.

    Your dad and son are cool. Your colleague is a knob.

    lol crazy conversations...
    Crafts, crafts, crafts...only 4 days of work to go :)
    It is frustrating when you really feel like doing something but you're busy...but I've noticed that that's the time when I really want to do things, that I get more excited over them. So overall being busy is good :)

    Quite the conversations! lol Too funny! I hadn't done any crafts in ages and lately I've been working on little projects and now I have that craving to make more stuff...but I just don't have time! Maybe after the holidays are over with, I'll attempt a few more projects:-) Hope you get time to paint!! xox

    Your son and dad really crack me up...The man in the meeting needs to quit acting like Bob Barker (from the Price is Right)!

    Hugs,
    Connie
