These fabrics are 1/6th of the way to quilt-ness by now. Am I going to talk about them? No. Today's post is far more annoying than that.
The weather-folk of Kansas City have declared that we will not see yellow sunlight again until Sunday. This is pretty much them saying, "Hey, Lauren, are you ready to be mildly irritated for the next six days? Ha-Cha!" So. Last night working on the new quilt something went wrong, not a big thing, just one of those minor miscalculations that throws off the flow of the whole thing- you know the feeling? And despite the fact that the mistakes have been mostly corrected and there is an easy solution for the rest of it, I still feel like the project has become less fun. Does this happen to you guys? Generally, this is how projects end up in the cardboard box of "unfinished business", which has yet to have anything resurrected from it. Why do these tiny little setbacks sometimes throw us off so much? Whiny, my friends, and the forecast says I will be like that until Sunday.
SO, in order to combat my natural tendencies right now, I am going to make a list of good things. Things that, despite the white sky outside, still make me smile. I'll do this all week, because, seriously, I'm going to need it all week. And today's fabulous thing is:
QT iced tea. Ok, so I don't do coffee, and I'm off soda, so 80% of the time I am a water person, but I love me a giant sippy cup of iced tea that I did not have to make. When Brian and I go out on the weekends, our first stop is usually for giant teas. Unsweetened, of course. Really, my devotion to this is somewhat sad, but it truly can put me in a better mood. Also, the Quik Trip cups are how I stopped drinking soda. You know those obnoxious people who talk about how they "don't even like soda anymore"? Yeah, I hate that, and I am totally one of them now. I realized that only about 50% of the reason I liked Coke was because of the taste, and 50% was because I loved drinking things out of giant cups with straws, so I started drinking water out of giant cups with straws, and Voila! I love it when I can fool my own brain. I hope it isn't reading this.
Anyway, where are we going with this? Tomorrow, some other ridiculous thing that I love! (I promise they will get better than gas station iced tea. Really.)
(Also, thank you so much to everyone who commented on the last couple of posts. Even I thought they have been convoluted and hard to read, so thanks for wading through, and for your support! You = awesome.)
