This is the no-update update.
For some reason, all of us are feeling a bit "off" today. Yes, I know I am always off, my humor is "off," my cooking and cleaning is "off" and I probably smell "off" after painting. But today, nobody seems to be able to get it together or get motivated to do anything.
Almost Grown and I were on a roll with the fence painting yesterday, until the humidity skyrocketed and we were melting in a puddle of sweat. Later, the thunderstorms and lightening started, the power went out and then back on, and a rocky noisy night was had by all.
Now I feel drained, achy, and unwilling to do much of anything. We were supposed to go see Indiana Jones with Stud Muffin (today is his day off) but the weather was still stormy this morning, so we didn't. We will watch the second Indiana Jones movie at home and try for the theater another day.
The mailman brought AG some long awaited books from Amazon (yeah Super Saver shipping!) She loves her books.
I went to my studio, and worked on some new produce bags. I had a customer request some bags that were taller to hold things like romaine lettuce and celery, and I thought it made a nice companion to the standard size bags. These are now available in my shop.
These are about 16 inches tall to hold big stuff.
In other shop news, I am working on a reusable sandwich wrap that doubles as a placemat. I am trying to find a truly food-safe plastic to use on the interior and this is proving difficult. I settled on the Foodsaver bags, but they aren't as wide as I need. Back to the drawing board. I may try a wrap that has no plastic and see if it will contain leaks (like jelly or mayo) while at the same time, keep the sandwich fresh and soft. We keep you posted.
But, for all my lethargy, I really can't complain. A spin through my blog favorites this morning showed me people with bigger problems than my own.
Marmite Toasty is having a horrible time recovering from knee surgery and is feeling hopeless (needs more chocolate!)
Mysti woke up to find her 11 year old son having what appeared to be an asthma attack. After an ambulance ride to the hospital, she found out that he had a rare case of croup that isn't supposed to affect kids over that age of six!
And Catty Ax Lady is having nightmares, and daymares, about hitting a girl who dashed out in front of her car! Everyone is physically okay, but the panic remains.
All I can say is Holy Cr*p!!
And now, I'm going back to bed.
