My camera is broke - another cell phone pic! Just a sampling of snowfolk waiting for their fnishing touches. At last I can finally put to use the shutter doors I found at the Re-Store for $10! A little nervous about securing them...seconds before I snapped this it fell forward and almost crushed the cat. It was so strange...she didn't even move. She's such a trusting, loving kitty...somehow she knew I would dive across the room and throw my body in front of her.
The craft show is coming up in 3 days and I'm feeling the pinch. Been up 1/2 the night creating for many nights in a row. Last night it hit me: the madness of it all. Why am I doing this? I can't even tell how things are turning out at this point. Will anyone even be interested in any of it? With this economy...will anyone even be shopping? But I read a quote today that I really like:
"There is nothing wrong or unnatural with feeling weary, but there is everything wrong with abandoning ship in the midst of the fight."
ARRRRRGH! I'm not walking the plank...The santas will get their beards! The snowmen will get their noses! LOL!
There is so much that I won't be able to finish for the show. Maybe I take on too much and should stick to just a few patterns. I dunno.
Spent the day in the emergency room with my mom Saturday. Man, I hate that place. She has ongoing issues, but will be okay hopefully. What a crazy place! Spent the better part of Sunday picking up the rest of the leaves in her yard...a fine snow started to fall as I was riding the bagging mower...the time is flying by so fast the seasons are overlapping each other instead of gently transitioning.
The requests for food, clothing and assistance with rent and heat at work are at an all-time high. Times are bad. My wish for this week is that everyone has enough to eat and a roof over their head - at least on Thanksgiving. I am so thankful for my blog friends - God bless you and your families!
