My push to complete projects seems to ebb and flow. I go gang-busters for weeks, then come to a crashing halt. It’s like I can only work so hard for so long, then my brain and creative juices need time to heal. I’m in one of those “healing phases” now. My hands feel like stitching, my mind wants to relax and read.
I started reading the book “Edgar Sawtelle” by David Wroblewski this past weekend, and It has sucked me in like a vaccuum. The book is on Oprah’s list; but that’s not why I am reading it. My father gave it to me after picking it up in a sale at the Flushing Senior Center in town. It wasn’t his cup of tea… he’s more of a history buff.
Have you read the book? Did you like it?
I will be quilting more… hang tight. Right now, I’m reading. Shhhhhhh.
Lake Superior State University has released its list of most overused words for 2009. Words you are sick of hearing… words you hate… What are yours? It seems as if acronyms are big on the scene lately. Things like LOL and OMG are now even spoken as if they are a word by themself. So what are the words you are sick of hearing?
Here are mine:
- Super (as in “Super Sorry”)
- My friend (as in Caron, my friend!)
- UFO (Quilters, you know this acronym. Let’s come up with something fresh and new! Personally I suggest the replacement be “blob.”)
OK, it’s YOUR turn!
