'tis I, taken by Claire
thought I'd share a few random things about myself~
:: see those three freckles in a row on my cheek? I've got a few sets of those
:: see the way my hair is in front of my ears? I always do that, because I think I have big funny ears
(I think she may have inherited them)
:: that pore on my nose that looks maybe a little bigger than the others is where a nose ring lived for several years, and I've long thought about putting it back in (um, having it put back in, more likely)
:: I like being barefoot, but not in wet, dewy, early morning grass. that's just gross.
:: I need to make an appointment for a dental visit as well as a yearly well-check, where I will address the strange fluttery, nervous, skippy feeling I've had in my heart lately. physically, not code for emotional stuff, though there's always that too, right? thinking maybe it has something to do with caffeine, but still... probably worth a look-see
:: I just shared the above so as to somehow make myself feel accountable. as in, the next step is to actually make the appointment and go or people will be on me to do it.
:: I signed off of facebook for a month and enjoyed it, but I'm also enjoying being back
:: I am thinking seriously about getting a tattoo. enjoying looking for ideas here.
:: I only took that one fiddle lesson. then hurt my thumb while we were extracting honey and put off subsequent lessons. thumb is better. need to get on the horn, so to speak.
:: I am not always the person I want to be. but I try. I try hard. particularly in the patience and not-taking-things-personally arenas. it's hard work, isn't it?
:: I briefly considered skipping voting yesterday (I know- no good) because I hadn't been paying enough attention to our town's mayoral/aldermen candidates. but I schooled myself and had some chats with a few folks and got it done, Claire in tow to get her little sticker that she loves and remembers from last year. you know, because it matters. a lot. thinking of all that so many women went through to help get us from there to here? that's enough to kick my arse into gear and get out and vote, for sure.
:: the fact that we actually have a thriving fall garden this year makes me giddy
:: I have dreams of becoming a writer. like a real writer, not just this babble I do here....
:: though the plants on the outside around here do quite well, I've got less than great luck with houseplants. I've killed at least three maidenhair ferns.
:: I am using a screen as a babysitter as we speak, with Claire watching some video about a kitty cat while I type away and plan art lessons
:: I really like freshly sharpened pencils, especially the brand new factory-sharpened ones, before anyone else uses them...
:: I would rather pee in the bushes than a porta-potty, generally speaking
that's enough for now~
