Hallelujah Friday. I needed you to arrive. It’s been a long week and I haven’t gotten as much done as I’d like. For instance, last night was completely useless. I had no brain power left. And this morning, I woke up with a headache…weather-related? Or the fact that I need to go back to the chiropractor? My new chiropractor is great, but I can’t seem to get back on a once-a-month basis…I don’t know what the other one did that was different, but it seemed to hold for longer. Weird. And no, I don’t think he’s holding back on purpose so I have to come in more often.
I’m a little frustrated with my inability to get to the art stuff, but have to accept that there must be a reason. The next step in the quilt requires brain power, and I guess I just don’t have it at the moment. I trust my art brain to get there when it can.
I have been doing some hobby stitching, stuff that occupies the hands but doesn’t hurt the brain. I did some in Seattle and I did some last night, instead of working on the girlchild’s Xmas stocking that will never get done.
I’m trying to upload the photos onto WordPress and it’s being cranky this morning. Seems like the whole world is a little cranky some days, doesn’t it? Cars cutting you off, crazy people in stores. So I try a workaround to get the photos. I’ve switched to a different posting platform, which they call “new and improved” and I call “eh”.
And that’s not working either. Sigh. NOW it works. Geez.
So I worked on these in the car on the way to Thanksgiving. They’re easy enough to do. I travel with them. I used to work on them at soccer games. They’re fun to stitch.
I don’t know if I can get the other three to post. Technology has been semi-frustrating in the last few days. Anyway, I worked on one of them last night at my stitching meeting…
It worked! (The upload). It’s not done (the block). Still.
Then I came home and ate and tried to focus. Ha! So I have this huge pile of fabrics from a friend’s mom who died and they needed washing (I’m allergic to all those new-fabric chemicals), but then they needed ironing, and that’s usually where I balk. I’m finally doing it though.
Originally there there two laundry baskets full of bits and pieces (some larger than pieces), but I’m down to one. So that’s good.
And I pile them up by color to make it easy when I need to put them away. Talk about braindead work. Ironing, folding, piling by color. There’s some I can’t imagine ever using, but I remind myself that I don’t know what I’m going to do, and that fabric there, that pure 80s calico, it might be the perfect thing for the piece I haven’t made yet.
You never know.
Yeah, I really don’t like this new and improved posting experience people. But whatever. So my goal this weekend is to get as caught up as I can and be kind to myself and other people and fucking clean out the boychild’s room! I have been working on that, but it’s still not there. And my office is not better, which means I can’t cut stuff out. And it’s all a little overwhelming when you toss the holiday crap into it as well. Yup. December kicks my ass every year.
Gotta go to work. I guess the plus is that it’s still Friday! Oh yeah baby.
