or should it be, "i wish i was crafty?" there are just some grammar rules that escape me. usually because they're different in british writing!
anyway, after work today i went to michael's to pick up some things for the cheeseblarg's secret cupid exchange. i spent some time pouring over various crafting/baking supplies, thinking of fun things i could do w/ them. some ideas come to me from Pinterest, some are just dreams i've seemingly always had. like my dream of making a paint color-sample card picture. i can see it SO CLEARLY in my mind, how i want it to look. i pick out the colors & then... whenever i try to actually implement it, it sucks. :( still, i enjoy imagining the crafty things i want to make!
sometimes things work out - like my photo wall. : ) it's in a constant state of flux, but it looks nice! i have another thought that i'll begin implementing soon, which is like my photo wall, but with postcards. i started out putting the cards in a photo album, but i have too many now (yay!) to fit! i could get another album, of course, but how often do i really look at the album? if they're on my walls, they will serve as decoration and remind me of all the fun i have with postcrossing! so, that's my new project. the first step will be gathering all the cards & grouping them, somehow. this might be the most difficult part!
i'll let ya know how it goes, eh? : )
today we had a delicious super bowl celebration at work. i brought pretzel chips & roasted pine nut hummus. it was pretty good - the hummus pretty well disappeared anyway! heh! there was a lot of good food - dips & fruit & crackers & of course the usual "junk" food - cakes, cookies, cupcakes... someone made a really good apple cake (might have been tastefully simple), which i had a couple bites of. : ) i'm sure i had one too many bites of individual things, but i did really well in controlling how much i had for the most part. this was definitely a good thing! my favorite 3 things were the maid rite meat, cheese/rotel dip, and the brownies. it was a struggle to have only 2 bites of the brownies!!! taste bud-wise, i could have eaten the whole plate, happily. *laugh* oh! also, someone ordered cinnamon vanilla coffee mate for the breakroom, and it is a toss up btwn that & peppermint mocha as my favorite creamer. yum!
bret called this afternoon to see if he could borrow my car to go on an interview. i said sure & he even gave me gas money! which will actually be brunch money for sunday. : ) his interview went well, and when he got back, i took off at 4:30 instead of staying an hour later so i could drive him home. otherwise he would have walked - which he's adept at doing, and he doesn't live terribly far from where i work, but it's cold & foggy out, and i'd been there since 7:30, so it was all good! *laugh* PLUS! the Lord granted me a very productive day, and i was able to get more claims done than i thought i could! yay!
anyway, it was good to see him, even briefly, and he gave me some DVD's his mom got at the library. i'm watching one now - a series starring heath ledger called Roar. it's kinda along the lines of Hercules/Xena, but where they thrived for many (MANY) seasons, this one only lasted for one, i think. pity! it also stars sebastian rochè, who played jerry jax on GH for awhile!
i spent a good portion of tonight trying to figure out what to have for supper! i was hungry, but nothing sounded good - or everything sounded good but nothing sounded like what i wanted to make. LOL so eventually i had some corn & a couple vienna sausages... and i'm thinking a PB & jam waffle will be in order soon. or a bowl of cereal, but the PB & jam just sounds good.
tomorrow mom's picking me up around noon to see One For The Money & go to linner. woot!
what're you up to this weekend?
