It seems like I am having lots of mishaps of late; do you ever find you seem to have a series of mishaps over and over again. Its like you need to step back from your life and say stop. What does this all mean. I am on the phone with Citibank right now since I can't find a credit card. So I am getting that closed off. Then this past weekend after teaching my weaving class Dave came to pick up my loom and I put all the tools and things in a bag and put them in the truck. It wasn't till almost everyone else had left that I realized my car keys were in the bag. I had to hitch a ride to the restaurant where I was meeting friends and then have to call Dave and have him bring me my keys. I really felt like an idiot.
I am trying to decide what I want to be when I grow up. The last 2 fairs I have both taught and had a booth selling my dyed fibers. Its very wearing physically. I am thinking maybe I should stick to one or the other. Perhaps I should just stick to dyeing since that is what I am good at. Its not that I am not good at teaching I think I can do that well too. I wish there was just this phone number that you could call and ask. What should I do? How should I best spend my time? I know it doesn't exist but it would make life so much easier.
It snowed yesterday, Only in Idaho. So its been cool the last few days, I am back to long sleeves and a jacket. I had turn the heat back on too. Weather is so unpredictable.
I guess it was spending all that time with Cyndi and her beads this past weekend. I found myself going downstairs to retrieve something only to sit down and sort some of my smaller beads. It is somehow very calming separating colors into their little piles. I am not done yet but I got a good start. I find when I don't have some semblance of order I really do not use the materials.
I recently purchases this book but haven't had any time to start some of the techniques. I think its the best book I have seen on wire work for jewelry. It has great pictures that demonstrate techniques.

or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around." - Dr. Leo Buscaglia
