For some reason, I’ve had the song, Endless Love, by Lionel Ritchie and Donna Summer on repeat in my brain for over a week now. I find myself whistling and singing it in the kitchen and even at work. That song reminded me of the movie, Ice Castles. A movie best left in 1978 (Sorry, Robbie Benson). Then, today while making dinner, the old theme song from the Calgary Flames popped into my noggin. What is happening? When was the last time I even thought of the Flames? I don’t get it. My synapses are creating havoc, or maybe these are really old ones just bubbling up to the surface? Yeesh. I hope disclosing these things will help clean out my brain to make room for something a little more current and fun.
Sadly, any trips across the border for the purpose of taking photos were canceled today due to rain. Usually, I’d be VERY disappointed, but since it’s not Faturday, I didn’t feel all that bad about it. It would have been nice to sneak in a trip to Trader Joes, of course. But not today. Instead, we stayed in, watched an assortment of movies and TV shows and I dug out things in my sewing room that could be finished in front of the TV.
First thing I did was finish the binding on the mug rug I last worked on, on March 22, 2013 (I just checked.). it’s just been waiting all this time to have the binding sewn on to the back. For some reason I made the binding really big, but it’s all on the back and who looks there? No one. The mug rug is now being used on the side table now located on my side of the couch.
I also brought out the, It’s a Small World cross stitch project from May 17, 2014. I got a roof and a flag done.
And I read the best photography book I’ve ever read called, “Read This If You Want To Take Great Photographs.” by Henry Carroll.
I think I’ll have my sewing machine sorted out in a week or so, so I’ll keep myself busy with this for the next few days. I’ve also got a big worky work week ahead, so I was glad to stay in today.
Even with my wonky synapses.
