...this is where i'll be spending the day
....this time of the year is cotton harvesting time in alabama
...they spray it w/ a chemical that dries it up making it easier to harvest
...what it does to me n many of my neighbors is gives me a sore throat
...headache n general ickyness
...funny...this used to be my favorite season
n last but not least...i HAD to put this one because of the title alone...but it just so happens shes fun to watch because shes so good....ok now i'm finally sleepy...goodnight
it all started when i couldn't sleep n a friend on facebook had a photo of a tote she made from something called plarn...it was so colorful n cool n i loved the idea of recycling plastic grocery bags (i use canvas reusable ones but i know lots of people who don't...so i thought i could beg theirs)...so this started a weird youtube tutorial trail...here's the 1st

home fried sweet potato chips w pink sea salt....yeah it's really pink...pink sea salt contains various amounts of 82 different trace minerals including...calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, copper and gold...it comes from the himalayan and andes mountain ranges...i think its an algae in it that makes it pink

i'm pretty sure i had a plastic lunch box w/ a long strap @ one time...soft plastic covered cardboard not the hard plastic lunch boxes of today...i think i used it til the cardboard rubbed thru...anyway i don't have the lunch box anymore but i found this old tin in a keepsake box n decided that i liked lookin @ it so i got it out to use in the art room...it was filled w/ powdered bubble bath...i still remember how "womanly" n grown up i felt when i used the bath powder....it probably gave me a rash but the tin brings back soooo many sweet memories...

i woke w/ a start this morning...don't you hate that...i was forced to take a half a dose of allergy meds before bed last night n still needed a coupla hours to sleep that off...
when i was a kid i was a morning person now i'm more of a mid morning person...but even then i needed a minute to ease into the day...you know to remember who i am, where i am, how old i am n is there anyone depending on me that day to sustain their life
so i got ahead n got up...so did my lover man
since c was spending the night on a girlfriends trampoline n r had to be @ church early for worship practice n l is married n sleeping in her own bed in her own house w/ her own lover man it was just he n i alone in the house this morning
so he mad tea....i made cinnamon toast n we played cribbage on the porch in the cool of the morning...i won
then we separate the recycling...dropped it off on the way n went to church
when we got home i felt like i had been shot w/ a tranquilizer dart...that word is so misleading...it stats w/ the word tranquil although if you have ever seen an elephant shot w/ one on wild kingdom...they go out n down like a ton of bricks....hardly tranquil
anyway we (my lover man) laid on the couch for an afternoon nap...after a coupla weird "am i asleep or awake" dreams i woke again w/ another start...again drowsy but up
everyone left for youth group...i had a shot of CoooooooOOOooLD sweet tea n opened a new blog i have n]been meaning to check out n its ammmmmmaaaaaaazzzzzzing....i wish i could meet all the ladies who create the blogs i adore...
i want you to check it out...
oh an another i spent...well i'm embarrassed to say so i'll just say i started w/the most recent post n went back to 2008ish....hey
since addicts love company here's the address for that one as well...
i have been busybusybusy painting black n dark stuff all over my house...everyone thinks i hit my head...no i'm just ready to "lighten up"
i am also feverishly working on my art room...i have so many projects n paintings swirling around in my head n i long for the time i can walk in there n put my hands on all the items i need to get them out of there
tata till next time

i can not believe i have been gone for so long....how rude
after all it's not unusual to think 1oo times a day
..."oo i want to blog about this" n my camera literally has 100s of photos i have taken for you
last week was my 45th birthday so i had birthday money burning a hole in my pocket n paid an obscene amount for a somerset magazine on blogging
...it did just what i hoped inspired me
....maybe part of the "hold back" has been that my laptop has been out of commission for well over 2 months n i am having to borrow my sweeeeeeeet daughters whenever i want to do anything on line.....since i am sorta like a squirrel running from one shiny nut to another...if i don't have my writing "instrument" at my disposal when the urge hits...it quickly passes n i see something shiny in another part of "the yard"...then it's hard to make myself do it when i do find the computer in my lap....
but i am inspired n feeling very artsy lately n have soooo much to tell you
....hang on a minute...i'll be right back

a blog friend wanted to see a picture a what i did w/ the old blue shutters
i got out a a pile a trash from the roadside....
i sold 4 for $10 each @ my annual porch sale...the rest my sweet man screwed them to the porch railin to make a cozy little nook to sit n visit in....the wild wisteria thinks i put it up for it...no matter...we all win
i also thought i'd throw in a pic of a chalkboard i made from a old winda frame...
i have yet to buy chalk for it...it's hard to find white chalk
