The bad news: I just looked at my calendar (something I apparantly need to do more often) and discovered that sometime in the next 15 days I have to prepare a trunk show for the EGA national seminar; design, stitch, & finish something for a magazine deadline; work on a literacy project chart, and update my website. I’m thinking my August releases are going to become more September-ish.
The good news: my MIL is coming for a visit! I’m hoping to clear the decks so I can relax and enjoy her company. (or maybe I could just put her to work?) She lives in Albuquerque and I love her dearly… she hasn’t seen our house yet because we usually go out there to see her; I’d be happy if there weren’t “to do” piles strewn about. Tidiness makes a better first impression, I think.
The bad news: Berry the betta developed a fungus and did not survive. The fish mart people assured me it happens all the time, and that it wasn’t anything we did (or didn’t do) but all the same it was terribly sad… Berry really had a lot of personality for a fish. I feel like I’m a wicked fish-killer and if the responses to my postings about the recent deaths of Wanettas 1 & 2 are any indication, some of you will think I’m a wicked fish-killer, too. If you could refrain from e-mailing me to tell me so, I’d appreciate it. I cried buckets over this stupid fish.
The good news: Michelle of the Cozy Egg was the winner of tonight’s drawing for my slightly used “be calm” chart. You ought to pop over there to check out the needleminders she has been making… and Michelle, please email me your address and I’ll send it right out. Thanks to all for playing :)
