The many faces of...

Today's Etsy Find of the Day:

Oh what a mood I'm in today. My poor boyfriend doesn't know what to do with me. He's treading softly and giving me lots of kisses. I think it's a combination of not spending enough time with my family when I saw them and driving too much. Baloo (my bf) said it best when he asked me if I was happy to be home. I said, "Yes, I just wish our home was somewhere else."

But that is besides the point- this month is about making things happen. And although I cannot make big things happen at the drop of a hat- I can rearrange furniture, download music, knit something for those I love, or listen to Bing Crosby croon about the color of Christmas (white, obviously). I just need to remember that "peace does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart." Sage advice from an inanimate object. (I think it was on a candle holder I once had.)

In other news! I didn't blog for the last 2 days...*forehead slap* I fail. Friday, I totally100% forgot. And yesterday I drove to San Jose, went to dinner, drove to Santa Cruz, went to a concert, then drove to Felton. And frankly- I think that's a fantastic excuse. It was good to hang out with my brother and his adorable girlfriend and to talk to my mama. I hardly got to see my sister (thanks for letting us crash, though!!) but I'll be back for Thanksgiving and we'll see each other then. Her house is like my regeneration station. More inspiration, kitty kisses, blogging, reading, knitting, and drinking tea in a weekend than anyone should be allowed to do.

In conclusion, I would like to mention that I am writing this on my laptop which is perched on my vanity because I despise my Wal-Mart desk which has corner edges that are like scalpels. And since Bryce (my laptop) is on my vanity, I am constantly staring at myself in the mirror behind my screen. Let's just say, I make some very concerning facial expressions when I am concentrating on something. Learn something new about yourself every day.

And with that- here is my "Um, I'm driving. I love you- but stop bugging me" facial expression.

El Fin.
