I am never bored anywhere:  being bored is an insult to oneself.  
-Jules Renard
i'll keep trying to live up to this quote, but until then...

with all this time on my hands i have been sewing--as i have mentioned. then i figured i'd better do something with this surplus of monkeys i have on my hands. so i made an etsy shop. there are not very many things on there--but i figured it's a start. if you would like to check it out click here. 

in other news, i will grace the great state of utah once again here in 13 days, and i am way way excited. there is nothing like a utah fourth of july. :))

seems like since we have been here i have been a sewing machine (ha). really though, i haven't stopped sewing. it's very strange. sometimes i feel like i'm one of the women from the forties in a sweat shop--and then i remember i am doing it on my own accord and can stop any time, and that i actually enjoy it. weird experience.

 i laid by the pool yesterday and was actually sweating droplets, i don't think that has ever even happened to me. this place is crazy!

the last couple of days i re watched the tv series America, because.... it came on netflix. everyone should watch it before the forth. i'm not even kidding, i'm so patriotic i almost bought a flag to permanently hang off of our balcony. i feel like throwing ten independence day parties and going all out.  it can be easy to forget what our country is all about, and all of the people that worked so hard to keep it that way. i feel like a transformed human. doo it. 

remember how i'm home alone all day? i have a lot of time to do things like take pictures on my computer and research the life of katherine hepburn. well i think that's all that is coming out of the thinking box today. seeeeee ya.
