Today is the day the curser decides to be in the center rather than the left margin.
Today is the day I promised the dental tech that I would REALLY floss every day.
Today is the day I said NO to the four pack of delicious Brownies at the grocery store where I went to buy floss and a bag of local apples. Not Brownies.
Today is the first day of my seventy first year on this planet known as Earth.
I always have big plans to live a better, happier life after my birthday. Sometimes that feeling lasts a day or two. And then something happens that throws it all off--like the margin thing right now. I know how to fix it (I think) but what I tried so far hasn't made much of a dent.
I used my new art book (with real art paper--good for pencil and I think other art supplies) but I started with pencil and drew (in the book) a few things that were floating around on the desk and table on index cards. I love white index cards. 4 by 6. Now I have a few ideas to work on and expand. Nine patches, flowers, circles. These are things I enjoy using in my work. Also a few insects or moths. Why I don't know but I drew three variations.
Today is the day I have to decide how to go forward with the Circus Tent Swing Shirt I purchased in May from South Street Linen. Yes, I looked like a wide red linen circus tent in it. I can possibly lay it out, inside out, and do some basting to see if I can limit the width in some way. Alter it. Super expensive and I can't see how I would EVER wear it out of the house again.
Made me look wider than I am tall.
G says it didn't look like that in the store where I tried it on.
I have now watched three full football games.
No, I don't know what is going on with that, either. It's a safer alternative to watching the news?
Still reading Louise Penny's Glass Houses. Dark. Very dark. Depressing.
I have to stop every few chapters and do something cheerful. Pet the dog. Walk to the Garden.
Almost not wanting to continue. The plot isn't that interesting. And the characters I like so much and who seem to have such a good time together. Not so much in this book. Everyone is just Off.
Even descriptions of the two rescued puppies is sinister. Is the little one even a dog?
Anyone else read it? Care to comment?
I'm going to make myself some lunch. Read my book. Check the mailbox for mail.
