The husband did good. On his recent trip to Berlin, he picked up these wonderful ribbons for me from a store I can't wait to visit next time I get to tag along on a trip to Germany - KaDeWe. Not sure yet what I'll do with them just yet. Too pretty to store away - must be used. Maybe I'll hit the Martha website, type in "ribbons" and see what kinds of craft projects pop up. I'm afraid I haven't had much time for fun projects lately. We've had pet drama - a fluffy dog named Ringo is on the mend. And, as I mentioned, the husband was out of town for a week so I was living it up single-parent style. This is actually the first moment in a couple weeks now that I feel like I'm finally starting to catch up with the chores. I must be getting old, because days like this really wear me out now. What I'd really like to do is sit down and start some Christmas crafts. (Christmas music, hot chocolate and a blustery day outside!) Am I crazy to be thinking of Christmas? I think about how fast the summer went by and, technically, Christmastime is really only about a summer's length away. It's going to be here before we know it. Now I'm remembering all the projects I wanted to get done for Christmas but just couldn't manage to sqeeze in last year. Sure, I'd like to start now, but how am I going to get six more hours into each day? And not just any old hours, I need six hours when I'm refreshed and powered up to be creative. I need more hours before lunch. If I'm not struggling to get through my to-do list after lunch, I'm struggling to stay awake. I guess I've just given myself the answer... but who wants to wake up and start their day at two in the morning???
