Swamped
For those of you who don't know, I have some rather, er, quirky idiosyncrasies (why does that word sound suspiciously like "idiot" to me?). Among them, I am a pack rat. Not a casual one, either. I am a serious, "oh, I know I can find a use for that" collector of the most useless items ever made. Not only do I collect "things" I also collect information. I cut newspaper and magazine articles out (must go back to my days working in the "morgue" of the local paper), I print out articles from the internet and I collect quotes. Yep, quotes.

So here's today's:

Don't wait for your ship to come in. Row out to meet it.

--Anonymous

Now, I have to tell you, the reason this quote resonated with me today is, the way my day is going, if I did this, my little boat would be swamped. My studio needs cleaning. It always looks like a volcano erupted in here when I finish a project but I can't start the next one until I clean up. Sigh. The room designated "dining room" is going to be having some work done in it so I have to empty it out by Monday. Where I am going to move all that stuff is the question of the hour. Then there's the trip out to Coloma I have to make tomorrow to see a friend from Indy who has a summer home there. She's bringing up a quilting machine I bought from another lady in Indy. I have no clue where I'm going to put that but I suspect it's going to end up in Nova Scotia. And, speaking of which, did I mention I'm going to Nova Scotia on Tuesday?? I still haven't finished catching up on the laundry from Squaw Valley and I need to pack this weekend.

Here's hoping the boys don't make a mess of the house while I'm gone.

Yeah, right......

    You and I have never met personally but I am sure somewhere in our past lives we were close. I was turned onyo you blog by another fiber artist and I truly enjoy many of the quirky things you love and our studios seem to spread all through our homes. I am often in an idiot state of being but my mind moves faster than my body. I have a broken humerus bone in my left sholder and it is a darn inconvenience. Stay just the way you are and Imagine Peace dear lady! Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart Newark, Ohio I love Earth day too!!!

Quote:Apples and Wine: Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who is brave enough & smart enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree. Now Men... Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up to women to stomp the hell out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.
