Rambling snobbery - books, music, food, knitting and sewing

rain rain go away

so instead of sleeping - like I should have been at 2 this morning I was wide freakin awake! Which doesn't make any sense since it was the most fabulous rain storm I have heard in a long time and those of you know I LLLUUUUUVVVVV me the rain. So I wasn't having sex and I wasn't sleeping - wtf? Don't get it either. I was just thinking - right because that's what I need right now huh?

Oh and since yesterday was so weird - applied for a job online and then went to look for it since I was in the area (had to go to the Fabric Gallery) so I popped in on Chris who works in a building made all from marble direct from Rome (not WI) wow! Anyway - the address for this place I was applying did not make sense and couldn't find it. So either God doesn't want me to get the job or something else is at work - whatever I'm not scared :D I waved at Palmyra as I drove through and thought good thoughts.

Okay - so I finally have to admit my foot is messed up and May - yes may have to have someone look at it. That is probably what woke me up. It hurts pretty bad and I'm having a tough time walking without wincing. not a good sign. Maybe not jumping on it for a while is a good idea. Maybe - but not going to happen. :D Ta for now and I am off to find the perfect camping knitting project. Something that can be worked without too much thought but can also withstand the possibility of dirt and such coming into contact with it. Oh the possibilities - socks perhaps? Socks it is. Now I just need to check the stash. Will post pix when I get them going.

Everything Zen

Why is it when I get sick (yes Virginia I do occasionally get sick) that the universe seems to shift? I have the funky throat thing going on and I sound like the phone sex lady - (oh that may be a money maker - Right!) And I am a bit tired but I feel so - well zen. At peace - weird. My mind is churning (when does it ever stop?) but in a good way. Creativity is flowing - It's a shame I don't play music anymore because I might actually be able to write that great american pop song right now. Nope just listen these days. And let me tell you there's some good stuff going on the music world. NO not the crap on KTI - but dig a little deeper - and you'll find it - they're out there. AND they care. It's pretty cool. Kind of like seeing killswitch at level 8 in Madison. Anyway being slightly off kilter seems to work for me - stepping out of the comfort zone and all. Meeting new - interesting people I love it! I met a few who don't drink don't smoke (oh do I hear adam ant?) and that is awesome. I know the bars would hate it - but stupid drunk people (and you know who you are - would be lying if it was not me on a rare occasion) are not my favorite folks. I love people for the most part - but add some alcohol and the idiots are on parade! I don't really hang with anyone who does major drugs so can't really say but I can postulate it's not good.

Well today is a day of reflection - reflection healing and swimming since it's like 90 degrees. And why - when I can't talk do my children decide to be too far away for them to hear me scream and the the top of my "no-voice" arggggg!? Anywho, say a prayer for my job hunt. Really don't want to work outside the house, and maybe God will be benevolent and give me a few more decorators so I can just sew 24/7. Although for some reason the Sullivan, Jefferson hwy 18 area has been coming up over and over lately - is there something I should know? Maybe. We'll see.

For now ta and I promise to actually finish knitting something to show you - got a funky scarf on the needles right now and since I never follow directions it will be totally my creation. A little weird but useful - just like me!

ready to jump

wow sorry all - been a bit lazy. Okay was going to say busy but I seem to find time to do just about eyerything else so I guess lazy it is. Saw an awesome show last night - really want to see them more. The Guppy Effect - yup wondered about it too. It makes me think of the secret goldfish from college but not quite. They seem to smarter than your average bears - okay I know smart and bands are typically diametrically opposed concepts But these guys seem to have the brains creativity and the "cojones" to pull it all together. From Fall out Boy to Hendrix it rocked! Can't wait to see them again.

On the marriage front - I know it's been a long time since I said anything - but it's pretty much done for. the man is moving out as soon as I get a job and on Monday I apply in Sullivan. Not looking to move anytime soon - but will when I can. Elkhorn is fine - neighbor hood is fine - schools are great but just don't want to live here anymore. I know "patience grasshopper" but ready to jump!
