Nature Coast

Jordan and I went to the Nature coast with Flat Stanley, a paper doll that Jordan's Mom sent from her 5th grade class. He climbed trees, went swimming, road a motorcycle that belonged to a toothless biker and I did all these things too because I had to take the pictures and then go in after him if he got in the water. It was fun, roadtripping is fun, it has to be one of my most favorite things to do, but I always have to bring my camera with me. On the business side of the knitting world I have a couple of new bags that I'm working on. Personally I am ecstatic about them! My parting shot is of flat stanley on in a forest of palm trees.

Lights out!

This was definitely a fantastical day. First I had to take boob money from a woman that I rang up in line today, I thought, "it is too early for these types of shananigans". The question I don't want answered is where did she put her change? After that it got crazy then dead, like waves of the ocean. Then the lights went out. That is when you truely realize how many people can occupy a michaels at once...when they all get called to the front of the store for their safety.. The generator kicked on to run registers and emergency lights which lasted about 15 minutes. In one of my not so spare moments I looked to the left side of the store where the lights where flickering and it kind of looked like the haunted mansion, but it was oddly calming. I'm also realizing that the spell check on this blog tells you what you are spelling wrong but doesn't suggest a way to fix said mistakes...catch 22's stink. I realized after forgetting I had a blog that I was being virtuous and idealistic about posting biweekly. I must train myself to keep up with this like I used to so I think I can pull a weekly blog that will be on Fridays. If I have a spurt of interest during the weekend I might have a special weekend post otherwise the lack of interesting will allow me a chance for brain deadedness that I have no chance for anymore. I probably won't let myself have it anyway. Long days are followed by short nights.
