As I sat down to write this post, with the quilted throw shown above in my lap, it occurred to me that putting all of the random ideas I have dancing in my head in writing is like cleaning out the refrigerator.
Because the task of cleaning out the refrigerator may not be my first choice (I have writer’s block , and I am at a loss for an interesting topic), doing that is far better than eating Girl Scout cookies- which has far reaching consequences (pun intended).
My logic works like this.
A. I can’t think of anything to write.
B. Writing down random thoughts reminds me of cleaning out the refrigerator.
Therefore-the refrigerator will be clean, and I will have cleaned out my thinking of expired, random thoughts as well.
Conclusion: I have a topic.
This is the back side of the throw. I bought this today at Ross for $12.99. It is now my new family heirloom.
*My left eye has been twitching off and on for about a week. May I say that this is VERY ATTRACTIVE. I have been told by friends that I am not getting enough sleep ,or I may be looking at a computer screen too long. Hmmm.
*Watching the winter Olympics takes nerve. Everything looks like it hurts, yet everyone is smiling and proud. I hide my eyes half the time, even during ice skating. I am exhausted.
*Several people asked about my journals. They are from Barnes and Noble. I fell in love with them for these reasons: when open, the journal is completely flat, the lines are wide ruled, and I like the collection process of having more than one. The problem is that when I first started buying them about 4 years ago ,they were around $16.00 – which I know is expensive. Now they are $26.95 (unless my eyes deceived me- the print was small). Yikes!
*I wish I still had my Schaeffer fountain pen with peacock blue ink cartridges.
*In March ,Daughter #2 and I are going to have a small booth at an antique mall. I have done this before. It was not a money making proposition- I price things too low. How does this rate sound?
$50 a month rent for a 4’ deep by 6’ wide space
the owner charges 15% on each sale
Am I crazy?
Now my eye is REALLY twitching.
