Today was my last day of work for my season at Rutabaga. I was bummin' about it for a bit...I'm going to miss my work buddies. But it's not all bad- it will be nice to have a shorter drive for a bit and I have to admit that I do love getting ready for a day at the office (read: dressing nicely).
My other job won't start full swing for a couple of weeks yet, so I'm going to spend some time working on some new art. I've been wanting to make new pieces for awhile now, and it's nice to know that I will be able to soon. I don't touch my art stuff in the summer because it's just not a good time for me. But with fall being here, and winter being it's pushy self and moving fall right along, I'll have tons of time indoors to do this again.
The other things on my list, now that I'll have a little more time each week?:
Play more bass guitar
Cook again (I haven't cooked since January!)
Work on house stuff (truly my favorite thing to do...other than thrifting)
Watch more movies (i only watch about 2 movies a year, but i'll give it a shot.)
I told Joe that we can have a TV in the bedroom if we can get floor to ceiling windows in the bedroom, so I can see out into our yard from the bed. Now I'm realizing that our bed is not very comfortable so maybe we should get a new bed first. And the other problem is that I *think* I would eventually like to end up in Madison again, so that's a lot of money for something I may not be around to enjoy for very long. BUT at the same time, floor to ceiling windows isn't really something we could ever have in Madison (hey, neighbor!) so we'll see. I just think it'd be great to crawl out of bed in the morning, shovel the drive, crawl back into bed with a movie and hot chocolate and watch the snow fall outside. But really, how often is it that we get a snow day? About as often as I watch movies. Um, I don't know why I'm in winter mode. Could it be the snowshoes that were put on display at work today? Hmm.
Anyway, the other thing I've been contemplating is renaming the blog. Eek! No more Operation Paper Cut? *Sigh* I think I'd miss it. I miss things easily. Have you realized this about me? Yeah. Anyway, it just doesn't suit the blog anymore and my original intention for the blog has evolved into something else. Remember when I used to spend hours cutting paper and binding journals? Well, that's where the name originated. I just pulled this photo from my flickr stream. If I look at it for more than a second then I will have to add "bind journals" to my "do more of" list. Another thing that I miss. I can't believe that almost 4 years have passed since I made them on a regular basis. Ah well, good things come and go.
So if I come up with a new blog name, it will change. I'm not going to push it, though. Then I'll be up all night. It's late as it is...waaay past my usual 9:30 bedtime.
