Boy things are happening fast around here. I just had to have a wisdom tooth removed. At 40 for goodness sake! Apparently this was some big deal. No moving for 24 hours, and now I'm bored out of my mind. It's really painful, but luckily I have a wonderful family who have come to watch the girls while I'm all loopy on meds. I hope I'll feel better for Halloween. We've been invited to two dinners! I hope I can eat by then.
So what am I up to while I drink smoothies and nap in bed? Mr Big brought in the big laptop so I can watch NetFlix on Demand. Or DVD's. I enjoy the extras on Heathers.
I've been fixing up the Sewing Mamas forum, and created a fun Holiday Boutique for the upcoming season.
Reading blogs. This are some of my favorites!
Handmade Holidays from Sew Mama Sew
True Up -- all fabric all the time
Sew Liberated, formerly Montessori by Hand
Before I had the surgery, I bought a small 29.99 plastic rolling file cabinet from Target. I culled through my patterns and was able to get them all in. Well, not the Kwik Sew or Ottobre. Those are in their own accordion holders. I'll snap some pictures when I'm not so dizzy
Listening to Hardcore History -- Punic Nightmares #2. Fascinating. I love history and Dan Carlin makes it come alive.
Also listening to Ender's Shadow. I finished up the Ender series (up to Children of the Mind) and decided to listen to Bean's story. Very well written, and I like the actors he uses to read the stories.
I finished up Mad Men, up to the season shocker. I sure hope AMC keeps filming these. They had a great old series that never caught on, about the early Hollywood moguls and actors. That was amazing and I was sad to see it go. I also enjoyed Don Draper's Guide to Picking up Women on SNL. I linked it on my facebook account.
I keep thinking I'd like to be sewing but then fall asleep. I'll have more to write later. Thanks to all my listeners!
PS I'm lucky also to have wonderful children. My youngest colored and cut out a crown for me to wear. In true HoneyBee style, she's glued on a hedgehog on the front to be 'fancy'. I feel like a princess now!
