Greetings and Salutations from the under-employed.

I’ve decided to not sit and fret all day about the lack of income. I mean, I deserve not to have one day in which I freak out about paying my bills in the middle of December, right?

Today, I’ve decided to attend to the things that need attending. Aka, random projects around the house that will make me feel like the dregs of summer are over, and welcome fall with open arms (cue Journey.)


My poor garden has struggled with the past two weeks of nonstop 90 degree weather, so today, I shall slice, dice, mulch and try to bring some order into beds that look weathered and abused.

Um, yes, this is what my front will look like when I’m done…


I shall knit.


I shall deliver some of the bounties from Wednesday nights baking palooza.


I shall head out to the State Fair of Texas and eat incredibly stupid fried foods.


I will finish a single project that needs to be finished so I can bill out, but most importantly, I’m going to just take the day and not be a strung out unemployed crazy woman.

The week has been filled with highs and lows, truthfully, mostly lows, so today, I’m giving myself a pass. I’m going to just be. Just do the things that make me less bitchy, more happy.

Have a good day. Take a moment to be thankful for what you have, because I can assure you, for each of our own worries, someone we know is battling a beast ten times larger than anything you can comprehend.
