For my crazy cool crochet critters

  This is what my hair looks like prior to moisturizing it.  A nice big ol' poofee foofee 'fro.  A few weeks back, while standing in WalMart's beauty aisle, gazing at the many Many MANY conditioning, dressing, treatment, moisturizing, etc options, I drew this comment from a fellow shopper, "I said to myself, that is one crazy cool soul sista in need of some serious hair help.  mmhmm"  What followed was some great advice, some good chuckles, and tons of questions ~~ the advice was from her to me; the chuckles were mutual, and the questions were from her to me.  Go figure!

PaPi WurBukZ!


Look!  It's me, with my first perm in ten plus years...probably closer to fifteen, now that I think about it.  It won't look like this for long, but I'm liking it.  So does my mom, cuz I did stop by to visit with her after spending six hours in town, four of which were at WalMart's SmartStyle Salon.  My hair is super thick and takes folks a long time to wrap in rods, tho it's relatively short.

So when I walked in the door, my husband saw me, a huge grin spreading across his face.  He asked, "where's Daddy Warbucks?  Oh, yeah, right, that's me!!"  I'm glad that I can make him grin like that.  I'm glad that he makes me laugh like this!

spinning uselessly

bitch, bitch, bitch; whine, groan, moan; weedle, snivel, snark...

K, now that I got that outta my system, perhaps I can focus; cuz that's been the problem lately.  I'm not focusing on any one thing.  So I have many Many MANY projects started, but haven't been in the mood to get much accomplished on any one of them...let alone a few or many of them.

Let me just list a few things I would like to get busy with, to get done, to check off my mental "to~do" list:

Miss November, a lil baby girl due a week or so after my birthday, is baby number four, with two older sisters and one older brother.  She will be the youngest as her parents most likely will not have more children, as it's a nice sized family.  I've made something for the other sibs, would like to make something for her, have started a few things, but as of yet, nothing resonates just right and says, "this right here is just THE thing".  My fingers will know, I suppose...

Miss January is due in that wintry month.  She is baby number one, the first grand for all the grandparents concerned.  She may be the one and only in the family, or other sibs may come later.  I'd like to do something for both her and her mother.  Again, the exact right thing has not yet presented itself, despite my searches and other attempts.

Couple are wedding in just a bit.  I'd sorta thought of something, but then decided not to do that, as it didn't fit the Couple at all.  So...

Now, I can do something, anything, just to have it done.  But that's not usually the way I like to do things.  I like to have the perfect fit between gift and giftee.  But I think I may do something, anything, just so that I can reassure myself that I can actually FINISH something {anything}.

it's all in the perspective you choose

I'd love to write something profound to accompany this posted painting, but the random thoughts triggered are fleeting and better left unsaid, as they are not well~developed and rather incoherent at the moment.
