Well!  It's been almost a month since my last post.  I find that sometimes I want to post all the time, and other times, I simply do more with my life when I stay away from the computer.  Or perhaps I do all kinds of internet shopping for Christmas instead!!  Ha ha.

Anyway, it's been a good month.  Lots of arts 'n' crafts, thinking thinking thinking, Bollywood movies and Indian music (by my own standards, I think I'm "officially" obsessed), thinking thinking thinking, some Thanksgiving food and pies (no family, but they are going to descend upon us in stages over the next two months, woot!), little toddler girl talking up a storm (what other toddler says, "Corn has a good flavor!  GOOD, GOOD FLAVOR!!!"  Seriously.) and being awesome and skilled and sweet and smart, aforementioned internet shopping (I, uh, need to stop), and general . . . thinking.  Yes.

As far as arts and crafts, I've been thinking about switching up some stuff in my Etsy shop . . . looking around on Etsy, it appears that I've missed several rounds of changes, so now my shop is woefully inadequate (oh, and empty).  Hmm.  More thinking is in order.  I dunno, I've just been thinking a lot lately!  Does anyone else just delight in a lot of deep thought?  Is that meditating?  It kind of feels like it for me.

Anyway, happy thinking!  Time to move on to stage 2 (or is it 3?) of my current project.  I'll share everything soon, I promise. :)

Happy November!

We found a giant mouse in our kitchen, eating our cheese!  Turns out, it was our daughter.  Whew!

I have to draw horses today -- don't ask -- and I'm so rusty!  I could never draw them very well anyway, so now I'm practicing by copying internet pictures.  All I can say is, I'm glad I have a dog, because the back legs are similar.  I still don't understand that whole bone structure, but whatever.  I think my brain would be happier sculpting horses than drawing them, actually.  But my current project is not sculpture, alas!

I'm kind of totally procrastinating because of the horse thing, actually.  As you can see by this post.  Baby's at nursery school so I can do whatever I want, ah ha ha ha ha ha haaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  And if it stops raining, I'm totally out in the yard today during her nap.  Sorry, horses.

Oh!  Oh oh oh!  This movie is SO GOOD! Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi.  Starring, of course, Shahrukh Khan.  If you don't watch Bollywood movies you have no idea who that is, but if you do, of course you know!  You have to suspend your disbelief that the woman wouldn't recognize her husband in "disguise", but it's fairly easy to do that.  Super enjoyable -- yay, nerdy husbands!!!  Thank you, Joleen, for recommending I drag it out of my giant Netflix queue.

I've been into Bollywood and Indian music again, listening to Bombay Beats as I work on my artsy stuff.  They play this song a lot, and I really like it. (Click link to watch fun video!! I finally saw Kuch Na Kaho, and to my pleasant surprise, it stars Abhishek Bachchan. Did you know he and Aishwarya Rai are married in real life?)

OK, I have to get off the computer and go to the library, go pick up my kid, etc. etc.  Bye!
