I used to have a huge desk (this photo is 4 years old). I loved that old thing, but as nice as it was to have the huge work surface, it was not so nice to move. It was heavy! We moved it three times but decided to sell it before the last move. Now I use the small antique library table I showed you Monday and I absolutely love that table, but I quickly run out of room on it. You saw it in rare form, typically I leave it neat but you caught me in the middle of creativeness and soon as the cards were done it was cleaned up again. One weird thing I must do is straighten my work surface before each use. Sometimes, I get so caught up in the replacement of objects to their rightful places that I never get to start on the new project because I've moved on to the kitchen cabinets, closets or the garage. . .
I can’t decide if I prefer the one with more depth of field or less? Which one do you like? I know that neither one makes you jump for joy - they don’t me, but I was just playing with settings and such and just cannot make up my mind if I like more or less in focus.
Anyway, you may have noticed that I’ve been using Thursdays as my little update time. The one day a week I set aside to talk about me and what’s going on in my life. It seems to work for me, I have tons of photos and things to show but really not that much to say so one day a week works. Don’t really know why I just told you that, but I did so there.
Now, update time: First up, Marissa - we’re still waiting. Believe me, I’ll tell you as soon as I know. She’s feeling totally full of baby and is just as anxious as we are for him to come and see the world. Any day now, he will decide to.
I just love the long tassel thingie on these flowers and think the outside looks an intricately unique as the inside.
Britney had a check up today to see how her baby is baking and the doctor couldn’t get a good measurement, so they sent her for another ultrasound. The ultrasound showed that she is right on schedule, she’s just not going to be an 8 lb baby like Tristan was. She will be a tiny little petite girl coming into the world around Christmas (probably with a huge snowstorm). So all is well there.
Don’t the little threads inside make you think of pumpkins and leaves turning and fall? We just had a few really hot days - we actually hit 90 degrees for the first time all summer and then we crashed down to 57 overnight. We’re nice and cool again.
We found a cute welcome sign to put by the front door, but while we were looking we came across this. . .
I know the photo’s not the greatest (it was taken with my Blackberry) but, huh? I really liked the leaves, the sign, but they only had this misspelled one. So it stayed at the store.
A couple of searches that people have some to my blog by have me giggling. 'lisa quit looking here' - I know I'm weird but that one totally cracks me up, here I am looking at search terms and someone is telling me now to! I find it hilarious.
The 'Swimming at Jolly mills' search makes me laugh because the post they would find would be the one with the cottonmouths. I wonder if they ended up going swimming after that.
'english majors do it loquaciously' - sounds like the kind of people I would like hanging out with.
On a totally other topic, some girls have gotten together to throw an event they are calling ‘Reunion of the Brides’, here in the Stevens Point area. Basically, it’s like the reception you had after your wedding, except everyone there will be the brides and grooms. It sounds like loads of fun, and since I know I have a few Wisconsin readers I thought it would be worth sharing. You can check out the details on their website, or email me if you have trouble with it loading (it doesn’t seem to like Firefox right now, but they’re working on it).
Yoo-hoo, anyone out there? I would like to meet some of the bloggers reading me and ones I read. I know most of you are too far away but some of you are close, or at least in the same state. We should do it. Maybe even several of us could meet up together. Anyone interested? I’m sure we could coordinate something that would work for all of us.
