I was motivated by my oldest daughter who really needed to seal a surfboard of hers that had some cracks in the surface and was taking on water. She sure can be pushy at times. I told her that I hadn't made that mess all by myself over the past ten years and I certainly wasn't going to get it cleaned up all by myself in a weekend. She pitched in. So, it is getting there, slowly but surely.
I need to talk to my doctor about a problem I am having with sleeping. I could conceivably sleep at any given time, and I do on my days off. If I sit for a minute mid day to have lunch, I no sooner take my last bite of lunch, than I am fast asleep. I have had all the blood tests, and I am healthy. I sleep at night. In fact, the fact that I will at times sleep 2 - 3 hours during a day off, and then sleep all night floors me. I may need some mega vitamins. Maybe I will try that before I pester the doc about it. Stitching hasn't happened. Simply because when I sit, I sleep. I put in a couple of stitches a few days ago and that was it, I fell asleep. I can fall asleep at the computer. WITH MY HAND ON THE MOUSE!!! Something ain't right!
That's it for now. Thank you for all your kind comments and encouragements! You guys are the best!

I would like to thank you all for inspiration, shoulders to cry on and letting me vent over the past year. I know I haven't quite stuck to any one thing in particular, such as stitching, but that is the way I am...over over the planet...with everything. Thanks for your patience in that!
I have learned a lot of things from all you ladies...and some gents as well. That is a good thing, I need to continue learning!
So here's to another year with all of you! I can't wait to see what the next year brings!

You are The Empress
Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.
The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents,
beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home
decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.
The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.
What Tarot Card are You?

1) Finish pile of odds and ends laundry in the garage. (This can be done while doing other things)
2) Move kayak/surfboard rack to other side of garage. (temporary move)
3) Get Grandpa's couch off the work bench. (Turns out it wasn't in the rafters after all.)
4) Clear off work bench, go through stuff, throw, give or find a suitable storage place for stuff.
5) Empty out dresser with small tools, make an inventory list of what is in there.
6) Clear out under workbench,
7) Make a plan for building a rack for drawers under the bench. (I can't throw anything away, and I have had these old dresser drawers from a broken down dresser hanging out waiting to be put to use for storing)
8) Get some stitching in!!!!!
I will probably edit some of my list depending on length of time for some tasks, ability to focus on other tasks, my age, amount of chocolate available to keep me going (chuckle).
I'm going to try to stick to this and I will refer back to the list often. Which means I will be on the computer from time to time and a game may grab my attention, slowing the organization process! But eh! It is my weekend!

So, Tuesday I had an appointment to get the tires on my truck. I went and got that done, came home, called AAA and had them come and get the VW out of my garage and down to the mechanic I had promised the car to. He's happy, he's got a parts car, I'm happy, I have a garage...well, a half a garage. I swept out the garage, just a start. I am so burnt out. I have not been able to do that much work in a while. My foot isn't bothering me, and there's nothing in my way to do some major cleaning. My daughter even asked me what got into me!
Gotta go...look see if our local Italian Restaurant has a menu online...mmmm lasanga! (sp just doesn't look right)

Now, I could even conceivably get my grandpa's hand made couch down from the rafters and rebuild it. It needs tightening in the joints, re-spring the seats and then make some awesome cushions for it. Although, with all the critters in the house, I don't want to put it in the front room. Maybe I'll leave it in the "crafting room" for my rest and relaxation in between crafting. Oh! Then I can also start the whirlygig for my chimney...if I get it done sometime before the end of time I'll post a picture...it's a cool idea, just have to make it and show you, cause I can't explain it. Gosh, there are so many possibilities now...I'm gonna be busy now, really busy. I'm so stoked!
It's just going to be weird to walk around in the garage instead of creeping along sideways to get to the mailbox or the tools. I'll be dreaming about all the stuff that I could do...I could have an actual GARAGE sale! WOW!
Okay, back to earth again...First, I need to clean up the mess that the cars left behind. It's amazing how much stuff you don't even know that the wind will blow under cars, and things, just show up...dirt, leaves, the sweater your daughter thought her friend borrowed and kept. HMMM, wonder how that got there? Monday morning bright and early, I start the major cleaning of the driveway. It's evening, and freezing out there now, or else I'd start it today, I have work tomorrow. Monday, driveway cleaning and get the green monster on a trailer to take to my mechanic friend.
I gotta go, I know I am boring you guys, I'm just thinking "out loud". Thanks for being there. Dang! I am STOKED!
