If you can't say anything...

I have been trying to go by the adage of "if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all".  In my case I need to change the nice to "positive".  Last week was one of the longest weeks I've had in a long time.  I was emotional, angry, bitchy, and a little put out. The weekend was interrupted one too many times by work and so this week I have been taking it easy.  Just working, reading, and a little crafting. 

Now I am starting to feel a little more like myself.  I colored my hair tonight (from a box).  It looks okay.  Gave me feet a little soak and scrub and am waiting for the fuchsia polish to dry on my toenails. 

This morning I bought tickets to a Spaghetti Dinner to support my nephew's scout troop, donated an afghan for the troop to sell at the dinner, and spent an hour or two catching up with my sister-in-law.  My brother is one lucky man.  Thankfully he realizes it.

I have had a bad case of spring fever or cabin fever whatever you want to call it.  I am almost happy that we may get some rain this weekend.  Then I can stop thinking about what I can't be doing in my postage stamp sized yard right now.

I've tried catching up on blogs that I've missed reading lately but my attention span is a little off right now. I'll get it back. 

Fuchsia polish is ready for another coat now. Have a great rest of the week.

Glad to see you're taking it easy. Donating afghan's and money for Spaghetti dinners? Feel great about all that!

The toes sound happy. I need to cheer up my feet soon. Blogging has been slow for me too. I need an inspiration. Hope this week is better for you.

I was just thinking that one of the things I love about your blog is that you really do ramble. STopping by is like hanging out on the patio over coffee.

I feel you on the spring fever. I really dropped the ball on my yard last year... at 1/4 it's not postage stamp, but it's bigger than I need. I've got a lot of work to do. It's only 4 years old and it looks tired!

Oh my friend, how I hear you on the spring fever. Came to SoCal hoping for sun and have had nothing but clouds and rain. When will the sun every come back to stay??

I should really do a pedicure since I now have all my toenails and who knows how long that will last.

smiles to you!

In my neighborhood there's a potato pancake supper going on next week. You want to buy some tickets? :-)

And SPRING!! Yes. Have opened my windows and it smells like heaven in here...
