The One Where I Blog Whatever Comes to Mind

Presently blogging from my oversized bathtub, full of Midnight Pomegranate bubbles, while eating mint ice cream with Oreos and marshmallows. I told Curt I would eat the whole thing, but I fear I will not be able to finish, thus forcing me to go back downstairs to put it in the freezer before I can go to bed. Phooey.

Okay, so here we go - random stream of conscious blogging. I hope you stay along for the whole ride, I'm sure it's going to be good.

- I want to try this.

- My sister has requested this bag, but stitched by me instead of who knows who Vera has doing her dirty work. She wants it a little smaller and all the bells and whistles aren't necessary, but I'm going to try anyway.

- I'm going to use some Amy to make said bag.

- Curt has to help teach CPR tomorrow, what a superhero. I wanted to snuggle with him all morning, but I guess I'll have to sleep in alone. As usual.

- I've turned into a one woman assembly-line at work, pumping out heart cakes like it's Valentine's Day or something.


- Speaking of VDay, I cut out a bunch of hearts today and strung them all together. Hung one string on the mantle and another on the back door. They look ridiculous next to the Christmas tree, but tomorrow I think I'll take down the green & blue bulbs and replace them with more hearts.


- Yeah, I did just say our Christmas tree is still up. I'm in a stand-off with a couple people and I have a good feeling I'm going to win. Soon it will be a Valentine tree and you won't be able to judge me anymore.

- We have a new roommate moving in this weekend, yay! She's from Oklahoma, where the wind comes sweeping down the plain. I dare you not to think that when you hear Oklahoma.

- I've been doing lots of late night crocheting. Dishcloths mainly. Three for my Aunt Dianne because she requested them and supplied the yarn, so how could I say no? I think I like crocheted dishcloths better than knit ones because they are thicker, scrubbier, and heartier. 


- I got a new desktop wallpaper for my computer. For the month of February. I lurve it.


- Get yours here. I get a new one every month to keep things fresh. But I might keep this without the calendar for a long time because it's uh.maze.ing.

- I also got a new vday wallpaper for my iPhone from here.

It took my iPhone from this:

To this:

- In case you were wondering, the old one is Anna Maria, naturally. And I will switch it back when THE DAY is over, but maybe to something new

- Anything else I simply must share? I'm out of photos and links, so probably not. 

- I made a new pillow cover for the couch. I need one more pillow insert.

- My bubble bath is slowly cooling and my ice cream is quickly melting. 

- I think I'm developing a gallbladder problem. Current symptoms include pain in my upper, right abdomen, just under my rib cage, dull followed by a sharp burst of pain, like a running cramp when your gym teacher tells you to walk it off. Except I couldn't walk it off today at work, it just made to curl into a sideways ball like a potato bug. Also, pain in the right arm and back. WebMD says I'm on to something, but I'm hoping it's just a bad case of you-know-what. 

{Gas, in case you don't-know-what}

- In case you thought all these photos look like we are living in a romance novel, you're not crazy. Picnik has a new filter that makes them look that way, I thought it fit with the Valentine's theme I have going here. 

- Whew, did you make it to the end? To reward you, I will offer a prize. Leave a comment on this post and I will randomly draw a name to receive something handmade by yours truly. 

{it will probably be a crochet dishcloth, but they are amazeballs}

- You have the weekend to enter, spread the news.

Brittney, love the wallpaper link! Thanks...
Your blog inspires me to start blogging myself! I enjoy reading it! Also, it sound like gas if you know what I mean. Lol I have experinced the same symptoms. Right under the rib cage. With an occasional bang of pain. That is my 2 cents... :-)
Happy valentines day!

3 things:
1 - it's hilarious to me that you are blogging in the bathtub. How do you even accomplish that without either electrocuting yourself, or getting the computer wet?
2 - rock the v-day christmas tree.
3 - I had my gallbladder out in 2008. Those attacks are the worst. I remember barley being able to breathe and feeling like i was being stabbed. Most of my pain radiated to my back though. Strangely enough.

Happy Monday!
