Not Much Better

I'm much more calm about the arriving to work on time thing though. I was still late today, because I didn't plan for scraping the frost off the windshield, but I still feel better. I also got a new idea about the room project and spent last night when I couldn't sleep making sets of prayer beads.

I'm not entirely sure why I decided to make sets of prayer beads, really. I saw the little wooden beads in the store and that's what I wanted to do with them. There's no rhyme or reason to my beads, so I may have to alter them a little when I get home (as far as number of beads, I mean. I suppose no set number is what non-denominational beads are about, but they still don't make much sense. I'll think about it!). I string them on colored hemp with a pretty porecelin bead and a cotton tassel. They are really cute. I made three last night. The moon is still full, so it won't make much of a difference in my intent even if I have to adjust them. But still, what, exactly, was my intent?

I've been knitting like a mad fool! I still have three scarves to finish. And I have one more doll project to finish (that should probably be done soon, actually). And I think I need to add another scarf. Well, one thing I can say for the cold Winter months. It's a good time to stay inside and be crafty!

Recently, my mom and I have been creating to the soothing sounds of Buffy the Vampire Slayer on DVD. The early seasons were the best. We're somewhere in the middle of Season 2 right now. What else are we supposed to do with all our tv shows on that strange Winter sabbaticle?

And, I'm thinking of cutting my hair when the weather gets warmer. What do you think?

Did anyone else notice that I didn't elaborate on why today is not much better than yesterday? Talking about crafts is a de-stresser, I think!

I love your long hair but as you can see, I love short hair better. *wink*

You are one mad, knitting fool. I've been trying to make Glen a scarf since last year. I'm not even half way through it! It's not like I'm that slow either (I don't think) I just can't find time. That's a good thing though.

What does your mood indicator say today? :-) I love those things!

I like my long hair too! I can't do a 5 or 7 strand braid with anything less. But it also hasn't budged from this length in ages. I'm wondering if I cut it shorter, if it might encourage it to grow a little more. Not much, just about 6 inches or so. I think it'd be pretty odd anyway. I haven't had my hair 'short' since 1993.

I cheat as far as knitting, I use a loom. I used to crochet a lot, but they definitely go faster on the loom.

I have to get another mood/stress thing. But that's ok, I found a site that sells them. I think we could probably pass them out at Goddessfest. Maybe it would encourage some people to accept some Reiki. :D

Ooohhh...I like the way you think!
