I am so addicted to these things!

You Are The Hanging Man

You represent the seeking of enlightenment and spiritual clarity.
You tend to confuse others, but your oddities seem deeply satisfying.
Self sacrifice is easy for you, especially if it makes you a better person in the end.
You are the type of person who is very in touch with your soul and inner spirit.

Your fortune:

Right now is a good time for reflection and meditation.
You should stop resisting the problems in your life, and let yourself be vulnerable to them.
You may need to sacrifice something important to you to move ahead in your life.
Accept your destiny with courage, and learn to let go of what you think you need.

Most of them are nonsense but occasionally one comes across that seems very real. The personality sorters are based on tons of questions but this one was originated from my blog name alone. It does fit though, like the pie one and the others. Kinda strange...

Now, yesterday, or was it Saturday, I promised to finish a post and never got back to it. So, I will update here. Wednesday night Ryan had a mini-camp with his church youth group so he was out of our hair til early Saturday morning. Thursday, the girls spent the night with their friend in a nearby town. Mark took off work Thursday and Friday to help ready our swimming pool area for a party the youth group was going to have here Friday afternoon. So, at 3pm we're at Walmart getting some ice and a few last minute things and the bottom falls out. We drove over to the church, in a nearby strip center, and told them they could still come whenever the rain stopped. So, they showed up around 5:30ish and stayed til nearly 8 I think. The girls' friend spent the night with us Friday night so it was a really busy several days.

Mark and I loaded the canoe and fishing gear in the suburban later that night and he picked Ryan up at camp around 7:30 Saturday morning. They spent the morning at Martin Lake and went again to Gladewater Lake in the evening. Both have decided that because of our recent flooding rains the fish are probably disoriented and not biting. All they are getting are brim and perch.


I began sorting my SIX large tubs of yarn! My parents left a 5-drawer file cabinet behind when they moved and finally emptied it a few months ago when they were here. It sat empty in the garage surrounded by these tubs of yarn until the lightbulb came on. Duh! So, 90% of the yarn is now in the file cabinet, 1 tub is destined for a garage sale, and my projects take up 2 tubs. This little project took all weekend but was interspersed with swimming, cooking, pet care(this is a big time consumer)and lounging around. Today I'm going to do my fabric tubs. We won't go into how many I have. I'm also going through some bookshelves in the house, again, to see if I can thin them out, again. It would be nice to have one of the bookshelves for fabric but I'm not sure how that would work out since the shelves are in our entry hall.

Hopefully, after this is all over with, I'll have a better ability to choose what I want to do. So much of this stuff, especially the yarn, has been bought as an experiment. I learned to crochet just over 2 years ago and had no ideas about which yarns did what. Now I do so I can make better choices. Quilting is probably going to be my lesser craft though. I LOVE quilts, I love handwork but I really hate to cut fabric and I dislike to sew on a machine. If I had a craft room with proper cutting equipment and such it might be different but I don't.
