★ October 5, 2013 ★

Good morning! It wasn't supposed to drop into the 60s until around 5:p. It was in the 70s when I woke up at 9:a, but it just dropped down to 63 & it's only 10:23a. I love it! I can wear my beautiful sweaters now! I need to move to a colder climate. :) Yesterday I went out to McDonald's for breakfast & then brought a bag of double cheeseburgers & fries to the high school. After that it was off to work, stopped at a bank, grabbed lunch, went to Allen, came back & got the mail, went for my walk, took a shower, took the dogs out, & then started on a huge project in my crafting room. I emptied the top shelf in the closet, the top of the wall unit in the closet, & all the shelves in the wall unit in the closet. Once that was done, I started taking buckets of my yarn out of the utility room & displaying the yarn on the shelves. It looks GREAT! I can see my yarn now! Instead of digging through solid buckets to see what I've got to work with, it's now like walking into a yarn store. I can see & touch the yarn, choose something & just pull it off the shelf & use it. I emptied 5 buckets! The top shelf in the utility room is clear, so is the top of the freezer, 1 whole stack of buckets & half of another stack. I still have a LOT of buckets of yarn stacked in there, but I made a dent ... a large one. I have lots of shelving that needs to be installed in the crafting room & once I install that, I can clear out a lot more, if not all of the yarn that's still hidden in buckets in the utility room. The crafting room WILL look like a yarn store. After all, I used to have a yarn store up in Princeton & when the main store that I was renting in shut down, it all ended up here. I'll now have my own personal yarn store to peruse any time I want to start a new project. I already had that, but it wasn't quite the same all hidden away in floor-to-ceiling stacks of solid plastic storage buckets. When you walk into a room & there's yarn displayed beautifully on wall to wall shelving ... well ... that's just wonderful! :) The project stopped when everyone got home from work which was the same time I finished filling all the shelves in the closet. I was now at a point of having to install the shelving on the walls. Perfect timing. I was at the perfect stopping point. Yesterday's Sims game was Winter Retreat & my Sim is in the university towards a technology degree. He's been going to classes & working on his skills. This morning I took the dogs out & loaded up Lots To Give. My Sim Ivan is in the university towards a science & medicine degree. He'll be going to classes & working on his skills. 10:51a & we just dropped into the 50s. WOW!

Go to a carnival this weekend. Play a hoop toss game realizing it's a metaphor for your infatuation w/ the bartender at your favorite watering hold. No way you an win either game. Buy some food on a stick & "people watch" until security urges you to leave.
