song in video: poem for carver by privacy
This week my family got back from their road trip. My crazy mother packed a van full of all of my little brothers and sisters and drove from Colorado to Maine to New York to Pennsylvania to North Carolina to Florida to Texas and back to Colorado. It took them a bit over three weeks. Of course I missed them and I was so happy to see everyone especially because they brought with them my beautiful Aunt who I haven't seen in almost three years and an adorable puppy that my little brother is calling Bandito.
Lately it seems the weeks have just been passing me by. You know when you are so busy and you check in for a minute and realize a month has passed and you can't figure out how? I have been staying up extra late to try and grab at time, but then that just makes me tired the next day, which doesn't help the problem. One day I will figure this time management thing out right? I have to go to the gym, like right now.
I am in the process of crocheting my little hands off so that I can open manzantia back up with a full stock of ready to ship inventory, the pretty goodies on the couch in the fourth image are a sneak peek. I find that I enjoy creating so much more when I don't have a deadline or guidelines. The danger in making a small business out of something you love is that it becomes a job. I love and I hate this.
Most of you know that I am writing a book, it is a fantasy fiction novel, and there is a necklace that plays a role in the story. A couple weeks ago I thought that I should try and find the necklace in "real life" and wear it while I write the story. I thought it might be a nice keep sake if I ever finish it. And, the stone is supposed to help connect the wearer with what I am writing about (sorry to be vague, and for being such a hippie:) I ordered the necklace in the last image off etsy and it feels right, I like playing with it around my neck while I brain storm about characters and make notes.
Look at that beautiful Boulder sky.
