Birthday for Mom

I started cooking about 9:45am but first I cooked breakfast for myself. My mother was coming at 12pm and the lunch consisted of Sirloin Chops, mashed garlic potatoes, broc and cheese, and sweet tea. Her "birthday desert" was Banana Nut muffins with strawberries. Yummy.

At 1:15 my came to pick us to go see Love Happens. Not your typical love story movie. I rather enjoyed it. Went to sonic, got a shake, my aunt dropped me off, and I took a nap. For too long. Blah.
I found this awesome plus size blog so I'm going to browse threw it and report tomorrow. :)

So I'm like almost done with my moms gift, her birthday is tomorrow. I had mentioned how she needed something for her earings and necklaces and I've been wanting to try to make one for ever and I did it! A frame jewelery hanger. I know, I didn't do it right compared to other peoples frames but I only had a limted amount of resources. I think I did pretty good, however the first time I did it though it was a fail but this time it looks pretty good.

The mesh stuff is the what they use to make bows out of for floral. The hooks were really hard to put in.

It looks rough but it works. I also used krazy glue but it turned out to be a bust.

I really wanted to use the hemp I have but I couldn't find it.
I went for red yard until I can find the hemp. I had bought a backing so that a nail could be
used but the nails where to small and I couldn't hammer them in.
Tacks work great though. I twisted and then hit them with a hard object.
The yarn is going around the bottom.
Well, thats one project down 8 more to go.

I love my mom

“Downstairs ran the Giant in great joy, and out into the garden. He hastened across the grass, and came near to the child. And when he came quite close his face grew red with anger, and he said, ‘Who hath dared to wound thee?’ For on the palms of the child’s hands were the prints of two nails, and the prints of two nails were on the little feet. ’Who hath dared to wound thee?’ cried the Giant; ‘tell me, that I may take my big sword and slay him.’ ’Nay!’ answered the child; ‘but these are the wounds of Love.’
(from oscar wilde’s the selfish giant)

When mushrooms are cast in a circle that means fairies are there. Something magical happens.

southern comfort.

One of my favorite things is to walk around the square when all the stores are about to close and the parking spaces are always empty. I go back to the time before Murfreesboro became so busy and how I wish I could have lived in it a little bit more longer then what it is today.

However, with this change brings business and jobs. General Electric has been gone for who knows how long and all the other empty factories are either standing alone or have been torn down for strip malls. Their are only a few left remaining.

My dad worked at a place called Tridon. I'm not sure if they still do what he used to perform but I do remember the smell of oil and metal. Each time he came home I would bury my nose in his work shirt because I loved the smell so much. On one occasion my mom and I went up to see him for my birthday. His buddies bought me a pack of oreo's, tall glass of milk, and dad got me my first Barbie doll. I remember that day because I was so happy.

I still have his work shirt.

I'm trying to come up with some good date ideas. Nathan and I go on movie dates and we recently saw Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs in 3D at the Malco-Roxy in Smryna. AWESOME movie. I loved it so much.

But going to see movies on every date can be kind of boring. I love just walking around on the Greenway, taking pictures, or when we used to go out on his motorcycle. Since school started and he works 40hrs+ a week, I'm stuck at our home, hanging out with my mom, or off to see my sister. He recently told me that he's trying to promote a guy. This means he will have Tuesdays off till his next semester! I'm so excited and I pray that it happens.

I miss him so much, even if I live with him. The only time I see him is in the morning in uniform, coming home from work, going off to school and then coming back. He's always tired, not like last year. How I do miss those first few months. BUT... I'm whipping up something.

1) Taking my camera where ever we go and lock lips. Then make a collage together.

2) Drive-in movie teater in Woodbury.

3) Picnic on a baseball field

4) Silly string

5) Go camping again and again and again and again (we got a tent!)

Always making the new

Why is the Co. I live in always pop up on the news. It has been raining nonstop though., getting pretty ugly. So far the lower part of the Co. is filling with water. So far people are safe.

7 more days of rain, I think the people in Cal. need it more, unless the fire is decreasing.

Word(s) of the day

Should or shouldn't have strings attached. So banish the word should or shouldn't and say want or need because when you think about it there really are no strings attached to want and need. Want can also be the dream and desire and need is your basic thing you need to get the job done.

Like a want a new camera, I want a Canon Rebel xti so I can be able to take better pictures. I want a dark room so I can use my enlarger and trays. I need a new car so I want stick money where it hurts. I need to new tires so I want slam into another car when it rains. I need kitty Sabastine here with me instead of at my mothers because I get lonely in this small apartment.

I want and need book shelves! BOOKS ARE EVERYWHERE! I need a new job! I want and need new jeans! THAT FIT!

See? These want and need things are wonderful and with no strings.

Banish that stupid word should or shouldn't. I feel so ah! but a good ah!

When Glassjaw comes on at work I feel bubbles of hate and happiness because that's how I always listened to them. A fuckyouIfuckinghateyoubutatthesametimeloveyou. A coworker told me his girlfriend is goint to ATL to see Brand New and told him Glassjaw was touring with them.

Weird. Why tour with Brand New? What's so special about BRAND NEW.

Get this though, Glassjaw is only touring on the east coast. Darn you.

September you are amazing

I fixed my lap top after 6 months of not being able to use it. Mom found the start up CD thing for it in a draw full of crap. Toshiba was going to charge 19.95+ shipping. So I put that off in hopes of mom finding the CD. She did two months ago and I put it off because I was scared I'd screw it up but I put my big girl panties on and did it. All I need is my power cord, I jacked Nathan's.

Work is ok for now, hours are slow on rolling in and finding that 2nd job is tough. I did however apply to Target a few hours ago. I changed my myspace account just in case. Double checking if I have left no stone unturned. I know how business sometimes go about finding out things. I need to go to my youtube account also.

I'm hoping to get that upper ball joint for my front left end soon. Waiting sucks and I'm scared to drive my car. My new gas pump is not really working, I can't tell how much gas I have left. So I go by how much I put in and reset the odometer. Working pretty good, I just don't trust my car on long distanced trips. I'll have to fill up for now on.

Freaky things have been happening around the apartment and Nathan finally saw an event, my wine bottle on the window seal started to move back and forth. Things are getting weird.

I just found out that its a good chance Minus the Bear will be coming to Club 527 sometime soon and Murder by Death is coming 10/23.

(sigh) I need to see a concert, it's been awhile.

Shake Your Knits

Simply amazing. The coolest way to use knitting talent.
The girl, Lauren Porter, who knitted the Ferrari is my absolute favorite. I think it's because she has more patient then me and did in a short amount of time. Hero. I highlighted her name to her website. One more thing about the knitted Ferrari is that she owns it, I hope she still owns it.
I have never really grasped the whole knitting thing but I do love crocheting. I recently made a hat and I'm now starting on a scarf. The last scarf I made was way to long but I tend to love long scarfs anyway.

I never question what to do, it tells me what to do. The photographs make themselves with my help. ~Ruth Bernhard
