Acorns anyone?

Has it really been a whole week since I've posted anything?  I can hardly believe it!  I have been very busy work, work, working away.  I will hopefully have some very pretty things to show you in a couple of months.  
I actually love working.  At least what I'm doing right now. I love having a creative goal and being able to work, pretty much all the time...but at least it doesn't matter that I take 5 million breaks during the day to do things like make necklaces, and gather acorns.  Or at least supervise and direct such activities.  It definitely gives the weekend a whole new meaning (even if I do work a little, I seriously can't help myself).  I finished reading I Capture the Castle this weekend.  And I don't know. I'm perplexed. I was thoroughly prepared to LOVE it, love it.  But then I accidently saw the last few words before I was done.  So, I thought it meant that one thing was happening, but instead it was something totally different.  So I was a little baffled at the end.  And so I just started reading at the beginning all over again.  Which, I don't think I've ever done before, so I must like it. Right?  I would definitely recommend it, that's for sure!  What a quirky family!  Actually, I don't remember the last time I've laughed so much reading a book.
 I'm grateful for trees. I absolutely adore them.  I really do.  Although, I can't identify them at all.  Well, I know what a mimosa tree is that's a start. And of course I know my favorite tree which is the magnolia.  Evergreen, blossoming, fragrant.  If I were a tree I'd want to be a magnolia tree.  Yes, they also like to make a mess.  Just like me it's part of their creative process.  I would have to live in Chris's yard though, so he could clean up after me!

I think we need some sneek peaks of all this 'work'. I love that you were in the 90's too because I think we are ghetto FABULOUS! I replied to an email you already sent me because you already have my email--silly!
