I am usually much better at posting on my blog, but this week I just haven't been feeling it--It is Thursday and this is just my second post of the week! To try to get me kick started I thought I would do a bit of a tag to let you in on what I have been doing instead of blogging:
Project of the week: I went to my crochet group last night and we started a baby blanket. It will probably take me all summer to finish it and when I do it probably won't be worth giving away but I'm excited about it. The real bonus to attending my group this week was that I seem to finally be able to read a pattern (mostly).
Gripe of the week: I got to go to Relief Society on Sunday (the men took over all the church callings for Mother's Day so I got the day off from nursery--this is not the gripe) and a woman stood up during the announcement phase and read an email that she had received telling her that 10 years ago President Hinckley prophesied that there would be 7 years of plenty and 7 years of famine and that puts us in the middle of the 7 years of famine and so to prepare ourselves we should join her in buying a food dehydrator. Hrrg! Now I am all for being prepared and having a food storage but why do we have to go all crazy and scary about it. (Let's not even get started into the whole rice shortage thing that isn't real--The US is not in a rice shortage other parts of the world are but we are not and the only reason that there is a limit on the amount of rice you can buy in certain stores is that people are panicking creating a rice shortage at that store not in the country) So could we all start paying better attention and try to be a little smarter? Probably not, but can you at least keep your craziness out of my Relief Society meetings?
What I spent the morning thinking about: I love museums. I was thinking about how much I love visiting them and that the best museums are the smaller ones that concentrate on 1 artist or 1 type of art. For example, while I love the Louvre it is huge and leaves me feeling completely confused and overwhelmed. But when I visited the Rijksmeusme in Amsterdam I left with a good grasp on what Dutch art is all about and can now recognize Dutch paintings without reading the tag.
What I'm really excited about: It is almost Friday!!!! I don't have any real plans for the weekend, but it will be the weekend and I will be happy that it is the weekend.
Book I'm reading: Gilead. As far as I can tell right now it is just one long letter from an old man to his son and I'm just not really into it. I need a climax! Is there going to be a climax?
After reading this post you probably understand just a little bit better why I haven't posted. I think tweaking a common saying just a little suits my situation quite well: If you don't have anything interesting to post don't post anything at all.
Sorry, will try to more interesting in the future.
