I've been quiet lately...on purpose. In all honesty, I'm feeling overwhelmed.
Tis the season, I guess.
I have to say that there have been great moments of happy thrown in amongst the overwhelmedness. Late night classic movies with that guy that I like so much in our little house on our little street. I can't get enough of them...the costumes, the hair styles, the shoes, the glamour.
Another love? My love for Vietnamese food has grown by leaps and bounds and we have so many great places all around us. So many fresh veggies and rice noodles and the sauces are so yummy...add in the fact that the price is comparable to fast food?
I made some time to make some jewelry and it felt so good...Christmas music (loving Pentatonix!) playing, a quiet house and me and my hammer.
I miss times of being able to create things but there just haven't been enough hours...but this week was a good reminder that I'm not ready to give up on it.
I think this cutie needs a Christmas sweater. Might have to make that happen.
Seriously....how did we ever live without a dog? And please don't ask that guy that I like so much...his answer is most likely a bit different than mine.
A moment of silence, please.
So early Monday morning I was out front with BuddytheDog (all one word) and it was cold. We'd had a big, kinda crazy after concert party and there were some things left around my little house...a jacket thrown over a chair, a pair of socks, a fancy hair pin.
Normal, after party stuff.
I grabbed the (really cute and I'm totally going to steal this coat that was left at my house...I mean, you snooze, you lose!) jacket and threw it on over my pj's and was walking, barefoot, out front when my neighbor drove by on her way to work. She stopped to say 'hi' and then said 'hey! That's my jacket!'
Caught red handed. Bummer.
The annual bible study brunch.
These women bless me, pray for me, encourage me. I'm thankful for each one of them.
The rest of this week is full...and it's promising to be wet. The storm of the decade is rolling through so I've stocked up on cookie making stuff and candles...not that we'll need the candles but then again, one always needs more candles. In the midst of the busyness I am hoping for time to do some baking and maybe even some more classic movie watching.
