We actually have snow predicted here for this weekend. That's right, snow. S.N.O.W. This just seems like bad management on someone's part. I mean, I ask you.(!?!) (On the other hand, it does give me a chance to show off this otherwise unseasonable necklace, so it can't be all bad, I suppose.)
The Short One has come down with a bad head cold and is currently sleeping uneasily with a slight fever (despite the children's Tylenol). I have a feeling we'll be headed to the pediatrician's office in the not-so-distant future. Meanwhile, I spent the evening whooping it up down in the basement with a bucket of bleach solution, now that our plumbing issues are, at least theoretically, resolved. Add in a celebratory load of laundry followed by time for going over our tax returns, that are finally finished, and - well. Clearly, life does not get any more exciting.
We have a thrilling agenda this weekend of standing in the line at the Post Office with all the rest of the taxpayers and going grocery shopping. If I'm lucky, I may actually get in some beading time. While I know it would be hard to top our plans, I hope you have a great weekend, too!
(I apologize for the shorter-than-usual-post, but my eyes are starting to cross and I'm currently propping my eyelids open with toothpicks, so I should probably go to bed. I'd mutter something about "quality over quantity" but I think I'd just be asking for it.)
I am an intellectual property lawyer by training and have a background in English Renaissance literature. I love science fiction. I primarily watch Sesame Street these days and find myself humming "Pop Goes the Weasel" at odd moments (guess why). I can happily eat ice cream in the middle of winter when the wind chill is 20 below 0. I have been making beads and designing jewelry since 2007.
