A Thursday List

This is one of the first times in a while that I have actually felt busy, as in my life.  I know that may cause some of you to laugh, but I’m not one who likes to be overly scheduled or always doing something… much less, always doing more than one human can possibly do.  {ahem, my friends, you know who you are… And I love you for it!!}  But there are lots of fun things going on… 
So, I have about 10 minutes before we enjoy some divine grilled cheese sandwiches with havarti and tomato soup… made by the sandwich king, of course.  Man, he’s a good husband.  Here’s the thing about grilled cheese and tomato soup… you can never outgrow the goodness and warmth it brings to your soul. 
Anyways, I only have enough focus for a list post and that is fine with me because I’ve been known to enjoy a good list here and there.  Not so much the “to do” lists, but the fun ones, like:
ten things I love about today OR
reasons why I belong in Europe OR
reasons why I would be a good ruler of the world…. I would, by the way…
So, in honor of feeling busy…
The Thursday Special
  1. Yesterday, someone ordered 4 Olivia Moore Art + Design calendars from my RedBubble site…that was the first thing to make my day.
  2. I finished and posted Lady Cordelia to the shop and within hours, she sold…. that was the second thing that made my day.
  3. I won a giveaway, from Design Mom!!
    !  An awesome giveaway… We’re talking super cute photo Christmas cards from, which is a fantastic site by the way.  I so badly wanted to mail out pretty little cards this year and it didn’t look like that was going to happen… then voila… that was the third thing that made my day.
  4. Here’s something less worthy of day making, my poor little boy was injected with way too many shots today and while I am not at all interested in a great vaccine debate, I just feel like the whole reason behind giving so many shots at once is more of a convenience for the health care professionals, an attempt to vaccinate the population as fast as possible, not so much for the health of little ones.  I do feel like they are beneficial in this crazy world we live in and with the goals and dreams of travel we have for our family… they are important… but I think with the rest of the kids we have… we might opt for an alternative schedule.  Ok, to end that discussion as quickly as possible, this is my final thought… THERE MUST BE A MORE HUMANE WAY FOR THE SHOTS TO BE ADMINISTERED THAN FOR POOR, LOVING MOMMY TO HAVE TO HOLD HER SWEET, LITTLE BOY DOWN SO THAT SOME “MEAN” NURSE CAN POKE HIS NICE, SOFT SKIN WITH A NEEDLE…. more humane for baby and certainly less painful for mommy.  Ugh, it’s terrible.
  5. Moving on, it’s Thursday night and I can’t wait for The Office, it’s the most brilliant thing on television as far as I’m concerned.
  6. Finally, I have lots of cool scarves that I want to start, but I already have a few special orders, which is SO SO exciting… so you better believe that this weekend, when I’m not enjoying hot cocoa or attending the local tree lighting or chasing the little boy around the room or wearing fuchsia leggings… my little hands will be knitting, knitting, knitting…
and that’s what busy looks like to me. I have a good life, yes, I do.

  1. That's a fantastically crazy list of things (minus the shots which are not so fun). Congratulations on winning the giveaway and all the scarfs. Ok, now I'm going to check out Matt's stuff because I think his talent is amazing.


Here's the thing: I love your comments.
So thank you.

Have a lovely day.
Drink some coffee.
