Let me start off this post by saying that I hope you all had a wonderfully busy day like I did! :-) Nope! I'm not complaining today!! It's been sunshiny, and quiet as can be around here. Just like I like it!! ^_^
I got up on time, did my exercises, did a little spiritual studying to put my brain in the right frame, had some breakfast, took some photos, and finished a couple of crochet necklaces...including the one in the header photo (and below)...
It rarely happens anymore, but today I felt like all my 'pistons were firing!'...mentally speaking. :-) If you lifted the hood on a real car I wouldn't know the difference between a piston and a pistol!...except that I don't know anyone that has a pistol under their hood! LOL
Of course, right now...I'm exhausted! But in a ♫ It's-a-beautiful-day-in-the-neighborhood ♫ ... and ♫ It's-so-good-to-have-this-time-together ♫...kind of way! ^_^ With nods to Mr. Rogers and Carol Burnett, of course! :-)) I'm tired, but feeling very accomplished! :-]
And even my backyard is looking happy! Look at all of the growth we're getting all over the place! :-) ...
Hubby took the flower pictures. :-] He wanted to get some nice pictures of them before the four days of rain that's on the way completely knocked them out!
While he was doing that, I was converting my owl flower brooch into an owl flower necklace! :-) ...
I was also working on my 'secret' project. :-) Okay...it's not a secret anymore! Look!!...
I'm working on a tissue box cover! :-) ...
It looks like it's all done, but it's not. I've got some more pieces to crochet for it, and some sewing to do! :-) Ooooo! You just wait until you see!!! ^_^ Of course, if you have a bunch of old crochet books laying around that you occasionally flip through...like I do, all the time!...you may have seen this project in it's completed form. If so.....Shhhhhhhh! :-))
I've even got some stuffing to do on a section of it! ^_^ And NO!...it's not another 'Baby Wuglyee' kind of thing either!! O_O ...*cold shiver!*...My crochet animal days are O-V-E-R!!! I just hope it comes out as cute as the crochet book's pictures show it to be!...Only time will tell! ^_^
If I wake up with as much energy tomorrow as I had today, I may finish it by tomorrow morning!...barring lots of painfully arthritic-inducing rain! Grrrr! WHATEVER!!!...I had today, and as my grandmother would say: "That's nothing to shake a stick at!!" LOL
Enjoy the rest of your assuredly busy day, Everybody! See you tomorrow! ^_^
Busy As A Beaver
I've been waiting for this moment,
where my crochet shop's involved,
to be busy as a beaver.
Now that problem has been solved.
I've been doing custom orders,
(Every customer had a tip)
Writing notes and tieing ribbons,
readying packages to ship.
Yes, I know that things could change,
I could hear crickets any day.
But for now I'll just enjoy it.
Beavers pat their tail this way!
