And she speaks inside a cloud.

I can't believe the weekend is almost over.  I am actually getting a lot of stuff accomplished.  This may surprise you, but I can be rather lazy about housework and crafts.  I love a clean house and completed crafts, but the whole process of getting there can be too tedious for me sometimes.

I had a ton of laundry to do, I did it.  My bathroom was dirty, I cleaned it.  My eyebrows needed plucking, I plucked them.  Curtains needed to be made for the bedroom, I made them.  Well I'm in the process of making them.  I got a little frustrated and then decided to clean the bathroom.  You don't have to measure anything to clean the bathroom.  Now I have the shower curtain soaking in soapy bleach water in the tub.  And my eyes are red because I'm allergic to bleach.  At least I remembered to wear rubber gloves this time.

I'm going out of town next weekend for 4th of July.  I'm excited because I haven't been out of town since before Christmas.  And it's also kind of why I'm doing a big push to get all this little stuff done.  I don't want to come home from vacation with a filthy house waiting for me.  Been there, done that.  It's a sure trigger for depression.

So I was just going to have a bit of a lie down last night at 8pm and I woke up at 6:30 this morning.  Whoops!  That sounds like something an old person would do.  And I woke up a little disoriented because the last thing I remember thinking was, oh I'm not tired after all, maybe I will watch a movie.  That's the thing about being an insomniac, if you don't need the sleep, you will get it, if you do need it, you won't.

Alright, I have to rinse that shower curtain and get started on folding this mountain of laundry.

Stay tuned for pictures of the new bedroom curtains.  If I ever figure out how to actually sew in a straight line.  Which is surprisingly difficult.

Oh and if you need something new to listen to try Gamma Ray by Beck.  I forgot how much I love Beck.  This song makes me want to take a road trip.

Gamma Ray isn't "new" is it? But I do love it, yes I do.

You sound like me with the sleeping! Who are we?

No, it's not new, but I just found it last week and I love it. "Thanks for correcting me, Lisa. People just LOVE to be corrected."

I'm totally doing the same thing as you with the cleaning and yard work.
Also, good job not having any undies exposed when you took that laundry picture.

For the sewing in a straight line thing - try making a fold, like two inches or whatever, and pinning along the stitchline so you can orient yourself by the pins. It's all I'm willing to do by way of using a pattern.

When I sew, I use the guide lines next to the foot on the sewing machine. Just line the fabric up with whatever line you want to use and keep it there. You'll get much straighter sewing that way than trying to eyeball it.
