My life feels full lately -- in a good way -- but full nonetheless. Today is one of those days where I sit and ponder for an extended period of time about what I'd like to expel upon my blog page... and frankly, what part of my extra-chunky thoughts readers would care about wading though today. So, remaining true to my sometimes smorgasbord-style of cognitive meandering, here's a sip of my daily mind smoothie.
* Bananagrams is my new fixation. Have you played it yet? One word: Don't. You'll wake up the next morning in word-game rehab with dark circles under your eyes, shouting "peel! peel! peel!" Save yourself now. You surely don't want that Bananagram-hungry monkey on your back.
* Last night I dreamt that I woke up and saw two huge rats in my bed. One calico-colored one was biting my finger ever so lightly, but I couldn't shake him off my hand. I remember feeling a little alarmed, but more concerned with calling the Orkin man. Is this a sign that I need to exterminate the metaphorical vermin from my life? Shake my anxieties? Release my repressed feelings about my past? Oh yeah, I forgot to buy cheese yesterday. Rats!
* I've been very busy with sewing projects. I created some bags, pillow covers, a curtain valance and am considering some window panels in the living room and chair cushions for the dining room. A friend and I were joking about making velvet jumpsuits for the cats. Wouldn't that be a stitch? He he....
* Project Grow My Hair Out is in full swing. It is actually looking fairly fetching, even in the awkward stages. It's been so short for so many years that I've forgotten how naturally curly it is. Right now it resembles a look that is somewhere in between Annie Potts in Designing Women and Detective Dave Starsky of Starsky and Hutch (circa 1975).
