What am I doing , here?

The thing is, I love this blog. I can not bring myself to delete it. But I also can not bring myself back to the bloggers table. I've tried, over at fun Frieda. That was supposed to serve as a sort of "behind the scenes" for my etsy shop - but even there I feel like a stubborn mule being led dragged up the mountain. But, lotsa good memories, here.

Double Dipping

I'll be focusing more of my attention here, now. For those who are used to seeing "theflyingmum" in your comments, be aware that it is I, "funfrieda," now being wowed by your wit and insights.

long time, no blog

Well hello there, bloggy peeps! Too much has happened around the flying household to possibly cover, but in a nutshell; started volunteering at the public school we enrolled Ben in last January (love-love-LOVED his teacher!), got the bug to re-enter the educational field (re-activated my expired teaching certificate, applied for a part-time teaching job), summer started, swimming lessons, vacation in July/August, retired on July 30th (WOOOOOOO-HOOOOOOO!) Ben's 8th birthday party here on August 15th. (we MADE that E*V*E pinata, and it totally ROCKS!!!!) School starts back up in just over a week, on September 2nd. It never fails to amaze me just how quickly the summer zips by, when initially I am overwhelmed by the idea of 3 months of Ben 24/7. We always manage to fill up the days though there are, of course, the lamentations of "nothing to do" for the first couple-a weeks. Then we get into a groove and before you know it, bye-bye summer. We are deep into demolishing our dilapidated garage. My plan is to have a bonus room over the new garage that I can move all my craft/sewing stuff into. TH thinks he will put a projector TV up there. He is so wrong. You are sooooo wrong Sweetie, if you are reading this. How 'bout I consent to a projector TV in the family room. 'K? And a shop next to the garage for your "tools" and such. I am very busy gardening, looking for a job, making journals and gift tags (more about that for a future post...) so I really doubt you'll see me around the blogosphere much. But I'm not going to delete this blog, so maybe I'll surprise us all by putting up another post or two before years end. Happy last few days of summer!

Now with Bracelets!

Did you ever have one of those days when you thought you'd be in the shower by 8:30 am and out the door by 9:30 am, but instead you sit down and make three bracelets to put in your etsy shop. And then you have to photograph them, and then edit out all the bad photos. Then you decide that a piece of black velvet would make a nice backdrop for the bracelets, but the velvet looks like it has been wadded in a ball for the past 15 years (probably because it has) so then you have to iron the velvet, and take all new pictures, and edit out the bad ones.
Then it's lunch time.
Then it's 1:00 pm. And you finally do get in the shower and are out the door by 1:30 pm.
Ever have days like that?
Anyway, bracelets are going into the shop, probably early next week, as the weekend will be a mad caper involving eggs, sugar, and me cursing while I try to figure out what I'm going to make for brunch at my cousin's house.
Wow, that velvet looks really lint-y.
