 I really miss my blog. I don't know what's going on but I have not been inspired to write. I definitely have time. My schedule at work recently changed and now I have three days off in a row. The first thing I thought was, BLOG POSTS! Then... nothing. Three days off now means I work 10 hour days... entirely in front of a computer. Me thinks that could be the culprit.

   Either way, I am going to really really make an effort to make a good comeback. This really is like therapy to me. I just love my little blogger community! I miss reading all my favorite blogs. There's so much catching up to do.

Here's what I've been up to lately:

Reading A Story Lately Told by Anjelica Huston. This book just came out and is part one of her memoir. I really admire this woman. Something really speaks to me with the roles she chooses. On more than one occasion I'll look at photos of her online for hours. So far, this book has not disappointed. I'm really enjoying it. Ms, Huston, you have bewitched me.

Writing Bite reports. I've been working for animal control for the past six months and a large portion of what I do is rabies control. I assist in investigating each and every bite that happens in our jurisdiction. You would not believe how many bites occur in this relatively small city. I've heard some pretty outrageous stories. It keeps things interesting.

Listening to the Beach Boys. For the life of me, I cannot understand why I was not enjoying these lovely harmonious chaps sooner. I grew up listening to my parents records which mainly consisted of 70's and 80's music. Then I was consumed by the 90's. I heard Good Vibrations on the radio and thought, Daaaaamn, this is good. So I bought their Best Of and would play it while I cooked dinner dancing surf-board style (that's the only way I can explain it). It gradually moved to my car stereo and has not left the CD player for months.

Smelling Thanksgiving!!! James had to work this afternoon so I woke up real early, determined to make us a full Thanksgiving meal, even if we had to have it for lunch. I've only stepped out of the house once to drop some postcards in the mailbox and the whole street smells like food! I'm going to miss that. I hope you had a great one!

Wishing everyone gets home safely from their holiday travels.

Hoping I get to finish sewing all my Christmas gifts in time.

Wearing a new shorter haircut. For some reason, I go shorter in the winter. Maybe it's because I want it to dry faster after washing it. It's getting cold! (I haven't taken a photo of it yet)

Loving embroidery. I stumbled into this embroidery shop after a dentist appointment and was transfixed on this gigantic book of images they could create on their machine. Everything you could think of! I'm obsessed with it now. I've been taking fabric in for the past two weeks to get new stuff for future sewing projects. I'm becoming fast friends with the two guys that work their. Hopefully they'll let me take photos behind the scenes for a post soon.

Wanting a black leather jacket.

Needing a Black. Leather. Jacket. Right meow.

Feeling anxious. I've been trying to get braces for a long time and it's finally getting close. Very close. I also have so many ideas rolling around in my head for my growing sewing business. I'll be using the same name as the blog. First step, have embroidered tags made.
