All this brilliance should rub off, shouldn't it. Marge and I live in hope. I am persona non grata at this very moment, because I have been going around telling everyone she is a year older than she actually is. Oops. Maths was Marge's forte, not mine.
Anyway. We all love her very much and want her around for a long time yet. Decades.
Happy Birthday, MUM!!!!
It is a grey day. I have all the wooden thingys on boards, waiting to be spray varnished, but that can only be done outside, and the moment I had them all ready, it started raining. Bah. So they are now waiting. And I will finish off the hearts, I think. I have a few more to embroider, and then I will assemble the lot, trim the edges and sew on the ribbon and they will be done. So that will be the effort for today.
Thank you all for your lovely messages yesterday. They lifted my spirits. It was a bad day all round. They happen, don't they? There are times when I seriously feel like Job, not that I am anywhere near as "perfect" as he was supposed to be. Oh well. He survived and flourished and so will I. We. All of us. Survivors. That is what we do.
What the heck is Microsoft Silverlight? I just had a message pop up on the computer suggesting that I may want to upgrade to it. I have never heard of it, and quite frankly, I am not rocking the boat here. Right now this aged computer is working. I am not doing a thing to cause it to expire. Updates do that to it. I do update the anti virus all the time, and it doesn't mind that,. but the system? I think not.
The rain did not stop, so the boards still decorate the kitchen. Maybe tomorrow. And I finished the embroidery for the hearts, but then I thought it was at least midnight, it was so dark, but I discovered it was 3pm. I loathe dark afternoons, but I have said that before. I needed natural light to see the marking on the fabric to be able to cut accurately, so that too will have to wait till tomorrow.
And then I burned the bratwurst.
The house is not smelling of my honey and chocolate candles. It is reeking of Eau de Burnt Bratwurst instead, and you do not want that kind of aroma anywhere near you.
So all in all, a stellar day.
I have acquired some PVA glue. I am now going to mix it 50/50 and paint the stars which are still out on the floor. I ran out of starch and glue is much cheaper. This is a trial and error sort of establishment, you see. I will try anything once and keep doing it if it works. The towel they are pinned to may never recover, but then I can christen it the craft towel, can't I. Just remind me that it is the washed out purple one when I stomp around trying to remember which one it was, please. The memory.......
