Countdown to Halloween--98

Well, I am in a bad mood now about politics so I almost didn't get around to making anything, but that would have put me in an even worse mood!

Here's a quick drawing to go with my mood for the day.

I'm going to my mom's house for dinner tonight...I did most of the cooking.  My mom's friend is making spinach soup and I made eggplant "fries" and a tomato pepper relish to go with them, and then I'm making a zucchini dauphinois, and I made one of those cream cheese vanilla mousse cakes.  I just made a tiny one and we'll put raspberries and blueberries on it.  All of it fits with my meal plan although I need some protein.

It's about time to put another kid to bed.

Countdown to Halloween--99

So, 99 days to go and I managed to put Doom Buggy in the shop last night.  Not a very auspicious beginning to my 100 Days of Halloween!
I drove into a flood of water and I have no idea what damage I have done...I hope she is reparable because I love my Doom Buggy!

Anyway, I was kind of at a loss as to what crafty thing to do for my second day, so I made an origami bat.  I am not very good at origami right now and this bat was difficult, and isn't perfect, but I am tired of working on it.  And, I figure I can make more bats and it will be good practice.  Eventually I hope to get good enough that I'll be able to make bat mobiles and just include bats in with other things that I sell and send out.

Countdown to Halloween--100

I'm super excited about it being 100 days until Halloween!!!  I'm going to maybe figure out a writing project and I'm also going to post something crafty every day.

Today's project is this knitted shawl I made last year.
I'm not entirely happy with this photo but I'll deal with it.  I'm also not sure I'm entirely happy with the shawl but it's still pretty.  And the yarn I used is lovely and really soft.

I'm going to figure out about the writing part of my 100 days, at which point I'm pretty sure I'll edit an update this post.

I'm excited because I got selected to be in a group I wasn't expecting to be chosen for.  Today is going to be a day of domesticity I guess because I have a lot of house work to do and I want to get things done.  I'm tired of everything being messy and I'm tired of not having clean clothes of my own.

I kind of want to move the table I use as a desk in my office to the other side of the room, and moving the storage unit that is there to where the desk is.  I'm not sure how that will work but I'm going to give it a try I think.

I sometimes wish that I didn't think things were going to turn out okay because when they don't it's frustrating and makes me unhappy.  But I still think that in the long run everything is going to be how I want it.  I don't exactly know what I'll do if that doesn't happen.

I think I'm going to have to break down and cut Max's hair because he keeps sucking on the ends and it really bothers me.
