I Must Remember This...

♪A kiss isn't just a kiss
When it's from my chi-ild
This is my bliss, my apple pie
As time goes by...♪


Oh well, better a lame attempt at rhyming than nothing at all... My apologies to Dooley Wilson (and the lyricist).

I really wanted to try this new houndstoothy pattern on something -I scanned a wood cut-out I'm using on a crafty project (new scanner, yay!) and fiddled with it on Photoshop. I love this pattern, it's timeless - even though it reminds me of our ... shudder... school uniforms growing up. In French, it's called pied-de-poule = chicken feet...

Speaking of crafty projects, I'm getting a few ideas together for some DYI holiday presents (including the one above). Keep your fingers crossed, folks - or better yet, figure out how to add a couple of hours to my day so I can get these things done BEFORE the holidays...

Hi rima,

I'll go for the couple extra hours a day! I am meeting myself coming and going ... and in the process I feel I haven't been a very good friend!

Fun project.

I love the "chicken feet", they have lots of possibilities, but don't let yourself get too tired and stressed getting stuff done before Christmas. Do what you can and then take time to enjoy this special season. Do I hear a "yes Mother"?

I wish for your days to have 27 hours and for you to not need any more sleep than 3 of them. That should leave you enough time to manage all the things you want to do.

a few hours for Bliss, I vote for that.
Don't do too much, it makes no difference in the long run, set yourself a fortnightly schedule instead of a weekly (or daily) schedule for chores, you will be surprised how little alters. Love you sweet thing.

Hey, how did this happen. I wait for days and days for a new Rima post and then when it comes I miss it.

I can't wait to see what DYI you share with us. Inspire me, Rima! I'm bah humbug here and that's not good 27 days before Christmas.

Bliss. Yes. Follow your bliss, dear, as a sage (Joseph Campbell) once said. If that fails, follow the end of your nose.
