Don’t you think you should go to bed now?
Leave me alone, I’m busy.
It’s midnight and you have to work tomorrow.
So what? This will only take a minute. I just need to find 3 more things.
Not that one, though. It doesn’t really match the cool item in the left hand corner. Maybe if I do a search for…
Stop That! You’re obsessed and your eyes are strained from staring at too many images.
But I’m almost done. Then I can save it and go to bed.
Oh look, wouldn’t that lime green bauble make a great start for a line up of lime green things? When I’m done with the space age layout I could do a lime green one…
No, you can’t. You have to go to bed.
I have a new obsession.
What’s new about that? You’re always obsessed about something. One week it was having to reschedule Jury Duty because they wanted you to come while you were going to be in California. Then it was craziness at work, then it was having to go to Jury Duty now in the midst of craziness at work…. The list is endless.
Ok, so I dodged the bullet on that one- they released everyone early that day and the work craziness will be over soon because the show has to open and I’m going to California for a different sort of crazy… and meanwhile I really like doing this even if it is a big time suck at least I’m not watching bad TV reruns, OK.
I’ve become fascinated with making Treasuries on Etsy. This is where one finds things for sale on Etsy that can be grouped together around a common theme- color, for example, or Romance, or Father’s Day. Sometimes several things will leap out and demand to be put together. Sometimes it’s harder. Two things may look great together but not go with anything else, or there are too many possibilities, or the last 3 items are impossible to find.
So instead of a new blog or Facebook page devoted to my Etsy store I’m going to start posting my treasuries- as a footnote- the way I used to post what music fit best with my posts on my old Live Journal blog.
So here is this week’s treasury. I’m particularly fond of it. You can see why I find it soothing to stay up too late obsessing over pictures of Zen Gardens instead of Jury Duty.
I’m pondering, but not obsessing, what knitting to take with me to California. My sock has reached the point where I need to decide what sort of heel I want to attempt. I can try to figure that out and start it while I’m still near my knitting friends so that if I get into a muddle I can get help… and probably obsess a bit about the whole thing or I could just put it on a holder and start the other sock. Hmmm…
