What is wrong with me? o.k....maybe don't answer that. hehe But seriously - I have a crucial "To Do" list, yet I can't seem to focus and concentrate at the tasks at hand. I just want to do fun, creative things....but real life keeps getting in the way and demanding that I take care of responsibilities.

Anyway, pictured above are two recent "projects" I have taken on in the last two days even though my time should be used more wisely. The first is : RECYCLED CHUNKY CRAYONS. I have seen this around and decided to give it a try. The kids LOVE them! You just take your broken crayons, shed them of their paper garments...throw them in a muffin tin...whip them in the oven and bake. The second project that I have been wanting to do for a long time is: a NO-SEW TUTU for Isabelle. tulle & satin ribbon..ties and scissors and bam, you should have yourself a tutu. I have not attempted this yet, just got the materials this a.m.

In other news its snowing again. big surprise there. I am drinking a coca-cola, the kind that comes in a can. I am not a soda pop drinker, but I felt the need today. I am thankful to aunt Mary for finding my long-saught after Eucalyptus that I need for an upcoming MOPS project. Whoah! I wonder if the mail came yet, I don't think so. I have a scarf wrapped around my neck cuz im freezing. Last night I made spinach ravioli, tonight I shall make some kind of beef stew. I am thrilled that tomorrow is friday for various reasons. Thanks to wonderful family and friends, Isabelle has offically sold approx. 100 boxes of girlscout cookies! She is so excited. For the orders that I took for her, she keeps asking me who ordered which cookies , it's so cute. It is exciting, we are now looking at paint colors for the rooms for the house in town. Isabelle wants her room to be rainbow. Isabelle wants fake nails. Isabelle now wants everyone to call her: just BELLE. She asks me why I named her with such a long name. Isabelle has an eye dr. appt. next week. She insists that she is going blind. She is now walking into tables and can't even see me when I come to pick her up for school. She thinks she might get hannah montana glasses...or diamond glasses...not really sure yet.
