Good Morning Bloggers in the Joyful Land of Bloglandia.... tis I...the woman who is getting all kinds of work done.... and "Why"? is she getting all this work done you may be asking...because...she...Me! (OK this is getting confusing) ...I disconnected from Facebook! I severed a tether from the Mother Ship and struck out on my own for a bit....ZOWIE, what a feeling. You never ever really know how ,dare I say it..'Hooked' you are until you go 'Cold Turkey' (mmmmmm Turkey)!! .....at first the shaking was a little intense but I saw it as a form of exercise (something I had not been getting much of having been glued to F.B.) ... next came the questions...Holy crap, what did I leave over there in little file folders that I now cannot retrieve.... ???
Then I tell myself..."self....it's not like you left pentagon papers there, or secret formulas, just a few old pictures, a few recipes and a whole lot of words that you can never get back anyway. What I do miss are the friends.....but...I have left long long trails of bread crumbs and I am hoping that many will find their way here. I left rather abruptly , not even a note on the fridge....
So now...with all this extra free time I am indeed getting oodles accomplished ....and it does indeed 'Feel Good' . Rather like the 'Olden days' (pre computers) ... I basically was not on the computer all day yesterday and when I got on this morning...guess what I saw...something I have not seen in a very long time...'dust' on my laptop...yes indeedy ...Dust!!! A strange site to behold....I would have guessed radioactive fallout over dust any other time.
The trade off is work accomplished....a wonderful feeling.
Yesterday we started the long process of setting up our tipi for winter use. She has been safely packed away all summer away from the extreme heat and sun... now she is ready to enjoy the company of friends, warm fires and hours of relaxation....this is something we always look forward to each fall...when the temps start to cool. We have been performing this same ritual for 6 years now and yesterday the neighbor on the back side of us looked over the wall and said "So, are you gonna get this done or what"? ...LOL...seems each year they look forward to this process and have been waiting with baited breath....cool! We want to have everything up and running by Thanksgiving with the tipi...now we need to buy a half cord of wood.
We are working on a Harry Potter Commission at the moment...should be a really fun piece.... Ron Weasley on the back of the Horse Chess Piece from the first story....helping harry to get past the Knights.... so far it is turning out great...will post pictures here when finished. After that....Harry playing Quidich...chasing the Golden Snitch. And we have to figure out what to do for a Christmas piece this year...times slipping away once again...thinking of a miniature Christmas Carol piece....
OK...time to get back to work and let my computer gather a bit of dust for the day ... I really do promise to be here more and more...with lots of this and that's....stay tuned...
