Well, I managed to stitch a bit on Wednesday while looking after my "feeling poorly" dog who stopped feeling poorly about mid-afternoon and returned to her usual ADHD self. Yippee skippy! Here she is with the Purple Puppy that her "Auntie" Gloria gave her. (Pardon the glowing demon eyes - my photo software will fix the dreaded red eye, but not glowing demon eyes.)
There are a lot of things I enjoy looking at and appreciating the craftsmanship and creativity that went into them, but I don't have to possess them to fully enjoy them.
For instance, I enjoy looking at jewelry, although almost all of what I look at, I'd never wear. I enjoy looking at "cottage style" interior decorating, although I'd never in a million years decorate my own house like that. I enjoy seeing elaborate flower gardens, but I'm not a manic gardener, so my own home will never have one. Quilts, on the other hand, I think I could go nuts with if I had the space and bucks. I've fantasized about having a different quilt for our bed for every day of the year. Yeah. Like that's going to happen.
I picked up some new adolescent paperback novels at Sam's the other day to read - the Maximum Ride series by James Patterson. I'd classify them as modern-times science fiction. They were a fun read - a little heavy on the global warming agenda, but in a palatable way. The author definitely has a handle on the fourteen-year-old mindset of the main character. I'm glad I'm not fourteen anymore!
And I'm nearly done with my PC to Mac conversion; I had to order some additional software. I'll regale y'all with the entire tale at a later date.
