As random as it gets.

{written Thursday, April 14} 

Here I am, enjoying a quiet afternoon.  Gianna is napping, Leila is at preschool and Tony is golfing.  I have a sugar cookie scentsy burning, and no noise but the quiet snore of Sugar, who is passed out on the couch next to me.  It's heavenly.

These rare quiet times are one the most random thoughts pop into my head.  I've decided to write a few of them down, and share them with you.

  • I picked up a bunch of paint samples when we were at Home Depot the other day.  Not sure what I'm going to do with them, but hopefully something fun and crafty.  Right now they're just sitting in a big mason jar on my desk. I like to look at them.

  • I had some traction done on my jaw at the chiropractor this morning. Ouch.  Did I tell you I dislocated my jaw last week?  Yep, I did.  And I did it in the most random way.  My mom and I were lifting a heavy table into my house last week and my lower jaw completely dislocated.  Maybe I was gritting my teeth? Who knows. It's back in place now, thankfully.
  • At Creative Estates, Becky Higgins mentioned getting a notebook to write down all of your ideas, to free up room in your brain.  I've been doing this, and can honestly say that I have been far less scatter-brained since.
  • Leftover Chinese food for lunch with no one saying "dat, dat, dat!" (Gianna.) Is fabulous.
  • This morning, while working (my work space is in the garage, FYI) I blindly reached into a box that was under my desk.  There were a bunch of thick spider webs in the opening of the box, but since spiders don't really bother me I kept my hand going in the box. I stopped when I felt a little tickle and looked down to see a black widow spider walking across my hand.  I screamed, hubby came out and killed it.  The spider didn't bite me (thank God) but being the hypochondriac that I am, I've been checking my hand constantly for any sign of swelling.  Eww!
  • I really want these and these for my birthday.  I've heard they're the comfiest, and hello - shoes for kids in need?  Awesome! Edited to add: hubby bought me the burlap tom's on our date night last night.  Woot!




Alright, so tell me.  What random things are on your mind?

I won a big stack of paint chips a month ago and still can't figure out what to do with them. If you get any amazing ideas let me know.
I did do a paint chip piece a while ago if you want one idea:

Toms=Most comfortable shoes EVER.
The only bad thing is, if you don't wear socks with them(I don't), they will start to stink :(

I love my little idea notebook - I started mine two years ago when I was reading Simple Abundance by Sarah Ban Breathnach she suggested it - I write all kinds of sewing ideas, website I want to check out, clothing lines I like and want to sew somthing similar. You just never know when an idea might pop into you head!
