I lost it a couple of months ago when my old computer went kaput.
I know two German words...and I really don't know that they are German, but my Pa said they were when we were growing up. One is kaput and one is dumpkoff. I doubt I spelled them right and they probably need some of these ' apostophre' things somewhere....but anyway, the point is....I lost my mojo. And here's the thing....I thought it was the new computer that I don't love like I loved my Roofus. See this post.One reason..for example....why in thee hell does the text get bigger and smaller when I don't do anything to make it bigger and smaller? It just happens. You can't see the difference on the blog, it's the way it is viewed when I'm typing. I'll be typing along and vrrrrooom - text is HUGE or really really small....it ticks me off. Dumbkoff computer. Hey I think I just came up with my computer's new name!!!!
Move move move move move.....
Then find a place to put things....CONSTANTLY. I'm tired of it.
At night I have no patience to screw around with this new computer. So I don't. I lay in bed reading blogs on my phone. But starting tomorrow, I'm going to try to get a routine going again. I get so much more done with a routine.
Like this cake stand.
I put it on some oatmeal for breakfast today. You'd pay a lot of money for this at Starbucks.
The other thing about moving....
You realize you have too much stuff. Not that I didn't know this before, but I have also changed my style a bit too. So, I'm going to get rid of some stuff.
I am going to have a booth, with another Granny Bee, at the Winter Woolen Workshop. If you look at the last few years, you'll see this is something I am a part of every year. But I've never had a booth. It's held at two mansions in Kokomo, IN, and people come from all over to attend. It's always held in February, and this year it is on the 23rd and 24th. There is a $10.00 fee to get in, which covers both days, and that money goes to the Historical Society.
I've decided to try a couple of markets this year too, if I can find a couple that will have me. I have linens, picture frames, old suitcases, tea cups, saucers, etc.
One last thing....
Groovy Girl Yarn.
She is having a super bowl party and SALE this Saturday.
See her blog (on my side bar) for times and such. There will be munchies.....and yarn....need there be more!
And I am teaching a basic crochet class on Thursday, February 7th from 1:00 - 3:00. So, if you want to learn to crochet, sign up, pay up, and show up!
I've been crocheting a dishcloth and a flower (above) once a week. Just one. Usually on a Sunday. By the end of the year I should have a nice supply of dishcloths and maybe a few stashed away for gifts. I'm not doing anything special...just a double crochet or a garter stitch. Quick and easy and ready to use.
The flowers...no pattern....just random. I am going to hook them all together at the end of the year for a table runner...or two....or three!
