Oh no... watch out... here comes a cliche why-every-one-hates-Mondays post. LOL. Ugh, did I have a heck of a time wanting to get outta bed this morning. The weather here has definitely made the switch to "Fall". Nights are getting down in the chilly 40s and having a big fluffy down comforter makes snuggling up against the cold so much easier. And it makes wanting to wake up so much harder. Oh well, I am up now (more then a half hour later then usual), coffee in hand (though it is going cold), the kids are out to school (but I don't actually know if Jacob got breakfast... when I wake up late, so does he, and he almost missed the bus), and I have a full day ahead.
I have just two days left before I need to have 5 projects with tutorials in the mail to Interweave Press. Deadlines sure to creep up on ya, don't they? I have felt so out of my beading groove lately. I fell like I am sitting at the torch for hours and only getting a few beads made. I think my most productive torch session in the past two weeks had me making a whooping 8 beads. Finally, Saturday and yesterday, I got in a groove. I am getting done what needs getting done and I am really happy with the results! YOOHOO, happy with the results hasn't been something I am saying much lately either, so that is a good feeling.
Today's pics are little sneaky previews of two of the five projects heading out of here. I would show you the "pretty" shots of them but then I would have to kill you. Oh stop, I am kidding, I wouldn't kill you, but still am not gonna show you. The previews are a nice bright way to start a Monday morning though.
OH, I almost forgot... I think I can tell you the BIG NEWS I have been hiding!! But, not until tomorrow or Wednesday. LOL, sorry... but hey, that is soon, right? I hope the build up is worth it. I know I think it is.
Okay, time to go clean my basement up. I have a new front loading washing machine being delivered today!! How fun is that?!? I get to wash things, WOO HOO!! (I hope you realise the huge amount of sarcasm that is oozing from those statements.)
