random indicators of the insanity

1. My house has a fully decorated xmas tree in it, weeks before Thanksgiving, and it's not ours.

2. Activities this week have ranged from porcupine quill embroidery to making a fully functional Gatling gun out of K'nex.

3. Dropping a grand total of two glass things onto the floor and seeing them shatter has been proclaimed "research." Nope, even boro icicles will not withstand fumble fingers 4 ft. above ground level. (Uh, those would be mine -- d'oh!)

4. There are sometimes short people here for horseback rides while wearing goofy glasses.

5. Discovering that they make Sterno in gallon-sized cans is a cause for great rejoicing.

6. We are preparing to take up residence in a lighthouse.

7. I have less time than ever for those beloved glass and wool obsessions, so I plan to head to the yarn store tonight for supplies to start three new projects. (Edited to add: Oops -- make that four new projects. I forgot the one for which I will use needles of a smaller diameter than toothpicks, possibly closer to the diameter of paper clip wire. Furthermore, I'm looking forward to this and think of it as "fun." If that's not insanity, I don't know what is.)

8. My people boogied to Boston today to see plastinized (plastinated?) people and a Greek teaser for a trip that will be finalized this week. I have more work than ever on my desk and am spending my time blogging. Well, at least I have my priorities straight! ;-) Posted by Picasa

Wow! What a life. I'll pop back later when the children are in school.
Best wishes

Whew, and I thought my life was insanely busy. What fun, though! Can't wait to see the project knitted on paper clips.
