Sick days...

Greetings - Sorry I haven't been able to post anything in the last few days but I've been sick with an awful cold. I was so freaked out for a while that it might be flu, but I didn't have any of the symptoms. I'm better now but I'm still coughing and blowing my nose. I better stop with the nose blowing pretty soon because I'm running out of Kleenex!

Well Halloween is in a few days and I'm getting pretty excited about my costume this year. My sister just got me a Police badge so my accessorizing is complete! I'm going to have a magnifying glass, a badge and a clip board. I hope people can tell that I'm a detective.

I've been watching all of the Martha Stewart Halloween shows and I'm trying to decide which craft project I'll do this year! I make it a goal to do at least one MS craft during Halloween.

I'll post more tomorrow after ballet!

Why is it so cold?

Greetings readers - Wow! When I woke up this morning, it was 40 degrees! It was a shock! I thought that yesterday was cold, but it was nothing compared to today.

Well, my Halloween costume is finally done - jewelry and everything! And I have plans for my birthday! October and November are quickly starting to fill up. Well, I have another day full to the brim with rehearsals. 1:00 - 6:30 - or something like that. It's been one of these years where time just flies by. It feels like it should be May or June, but not October! I worried that if I blink, it'll be December and The Nutcracker will be over!

I'll post more later - I need to go and get some breakfast.

Ohhh busy days...

Greetings - Well the busy days are upon me now! School all day, then ballet all night, and then rehearsals all weekend. It also doesn't help that the fall weather is here and I've been having asthma problems. I love the fall but, I'm sorry to say, it doesn't agree with my lungs. Gosh I would love to be in Paris right now. I wouldn't even mind being there just for a day - at least I would have a break from my everyday lifestyle. Tomorrow I'll pretend that I'm there and set out a picnic on my front yard with a blanket and a basket, and then settle down with a good book.....ahhhhhh...... it sounds heavenly!

Nutcracker rehearsals have gotten CRAZY! I have class from 5-6:30 on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. On Wens. and Fri. I have rehearsal from 6:30-8. And then on Saturday I have it all day!

Last night after I turned out my light, my cat Jack jumped up on my bed and got on my lap (stay tuned - the plot thickens!!) When I turned over onto my stomach, he got onto my back and sat down! He stayed there ALL NIGHT!! And when I woke up he did it again! He's a sticky cat!

I'll hopefully post more tomorrow (if I have time!)! Bonsoir!

Picking up the pieces...

Greetings - I've been working on this story all day and I hope you enjoy it.

A Metaphor for Life

Life is hard - that's a fact. But it doesn't have to get out of control. Think of your life as a jumble of ripped up pieces of yarn; if you tie them together then life is already getting better. But if you start knitting them into a scarf or a bag then you can make those ripped up pieces into something useful and creative. Now think of that every time you have an argument with someone or you get criticized for something. Remember the scarf that was once pieces of ripped up yard. Make it a metaphor for your life. Pick up the pieces and turn the anger and frustration into something beautiful.

I Love Vintage Clothes!!!!

Greetings - Well today I decided to take hundreds of pictures of my vintage hats, jewelry, clothes and hatboxes. It'll probably crash my computer if I try to post them! In case you don't know by now, I love everything and anything that's vintage! You name it, I love it. Right now I'm bidding on a pair of alligator skin shoes (peep-toes!) from the 1940's. They're gorgeous! They have 3 1/2 inch heels and an ankle strap. If I win the bid then I won't take them off from the moment they arrive!

My most recent obsession is vintage shoes (you might have already guessed it. It's rare to find size 8 1/2 shoes from the 30's or 40's (either women back then had tiny feet, or I have huge feet. Either way, they're really hard to find.). I'm going to make it my goal to have at least 5 pairs of vintage shoes in my closet AT ALL TIMES!

My sister went to the Winston Churchill war rooms in London and she got me a replica of a book from the 40's called Make Do and Mend. It's so amazing! It shows you how to patch clothing, fix knitted sweaters if they have a hole in them and other ways to fix clothes.

I'll post some pictures later!!

More pictures!

Greetings - I would blog about my life, but nothing exciting has happened (besides the return of my Sister - but I'm sure she wouldn't want me to post details of her trip!) So here are some pictures of my four lovable, crazy cats!
Left to right - Jack, Moe, Lulu and William.

Greetings - Well it's defiantly fall! I actually wore a sweater today - amazing! I still went and read by the pool though. It was funny. I was in a sweater and jeans and my mom came in my room and said "Hey! You wanna go to the pool?" Welcome to Florida.

Today I had extreme energy - I went for two walk/runs, I kept jumping up from the computer unable to sit still and having adrenaline rushes. I've been working on my Halloween costume and I've finally decided to be a detective from the 1940's. I even have the trench coat!

I finished reading "My Life In France" by Julia Child and I loved it! I recommend that everyone read - food lover or not!

I'll post more later!
