Ah, yes. I remember this now. It’s that time of year when I drive to work in the dark and drive home from work in the dark and the only time I see the sun is during that 30 – 60 minutes that I run screaming from my warehouse of an office space and stand outside blinking in the sunlight wondering “What is that big bright shiny thing up in the sky? It’s so pretty!” The fact that we don’t get weeks and weeks of clouds down here in the south is the only thing that keeps me sane during these dark months.
Well, it’s one of many things that keep me sane during these dark months. I’ll probably be writing about the other things that keep me sane over the next couple months just so I keep them in the front of my mind.
Anyway. Work is crazy. The guy in charge of my “pod” doesn’t know where I’m at with the job thing — I’ve been told not to talk about it with him — and he keeps trying to present things that might make me consider staying. I think that’s what he’s trying to do, anyway. It’s not working very well because it mostly makes me think about the reasons why I don’t like my current job. Counter-effective? Ooooooh, yeah. Plus it’s just crazy because of how the schedule has stacked up and that’s just the way it’s going to be for a little while.
Enough about work!
I had a lot of fun decorating for Halloween and I’ve been thinking of ways that I could decorate for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I did felt leaves last year and I still like the look of those.
Here’s a picture of the ones I did last year — not my picture, though. It’s from the post where I got the idea: HERE.
I found this picture recently, though:
And now I’m trying to figure out if I can do that kind of thing. I’m not sure where I got the picture from, but I think it’s of something someone’s selling on Etsy. But working with wire isn’t something I’m very good at doing.
Then, too, I’d also really love to do something along the lines of these:
But I have no idea how I’d go about bending forks into a nice loop so I could use them as napkin rings. But aren’t they cute?!!! I WANT. And I want for cheap, like with the unused set of silverware sitting in the office closet. One of these days I’m going to take out a fork and a pliers and just see how bendy they really are. And probably end up with two pieces of one fork. But hey! Then I’ll know.
How about you? Got any crafty plans for November?
