Today was pretty much perfect. Thursdays are my alone time days, the one day a week where I'm off from work and at home alone.
I typically fill up the day with loads of errands. Cleaning, food shopping, and running around all day. It's the day where every thing gets done. It's the day where I tackle projects that I make up for myself, like rearranging closets for no apparent reason other then my need to make something up to do to keep me busy all day. The day where I'll decide to make an elaborate dinner, well for me at least. (Lazy Novice applies to cooking too, in my life!)
Today was way too easy of a day. I had nothing to do. I straightened up and went to the food store to pick up dinner for tonight, and was home by noon. Dinner was in the crock pot fifteen minutes later.
And then I had all afternoon to do nothing! Storms were rolling through, and I didn't feel like leaving the house.
So I sat down here:
Right under that crooked fabric covered canvas, and right next to that crazy eyed dog.
I kicked on the DVR for a marathon date with Nate and Gen.
I finished my wreath.
I have no place for this wreath. I have no one to give this wreath to as a gift. I made it just to make it. I need a support group, for real.
I'm most likely the only person on the planet who didn't know this, but if I can spare just one person from the misery of googling the following, I will have done my job:
"Hanging Wreath By Ribbon" or "Use Ribbon to hang wreath" or "How does every awesome blogger on the planet hang their wreaths by ribbons without a wreath hanger, and how come there are no google results? I can't possibly be any clearer with my search terms, google. C'mon, help me here!"
Thumbtacks. That's the super secret.
I hung curtains so the landscapers wouldn't see me lounging in my yoga pants and lime green Alaska shirt.
I cleaned out my front door "Drop All" Basket, and put the photo of lovely Ms. Cleo in her fancy frame.
I pulled out my craft stash, and realized I am terrible at finishing projects. I have FOUR unfinished projects. Four.
I promised myself I will finish these projects.
I realized that most of them are way beyond my skill set.
I painted my nails.
I read blogs.
I ate my delicious dinner.
I wrote this blog.
I love today.
Today was a good day.
The wreath was the only project I finished this week! Linking up to Debbiedoos newbie party!
