Change is in the air

I've been struggling with whether or not to post this for fear I curse myself. But I also have a small problem keeping my mouth shut when I am excited/nervous/worrying myself sick about something. So here goes. We made an offer on a house last night.And, I might just have myself a new job. It feels we have been kind of stuck in a rut as of late and some major change is much needed.I am so fearful this will not work out , I've never wanted-no,scratch that- NEEDED change so bad in all my life. So if someone is looking out for me, which I happen to believe they are, this will all work itself out. And if it doesn't, this lesson may not crush me, but it will break me down.

On a lighter was our afternoon yesterday.

The perfect way to relieve some stress. A round of our most favorite game, Hula hoop kickball.

and just because I can, a sweet photo of my favorite little tree hugger

my favorite place to buy fabric......

This may come as no surprise but my absolute favorite place to buy fabric is my local Goodwill. I almost never leave disappointed. If only I could sew as fast as I won't tell my husband will you? wink wink
here are my latest finds

The two florals are heavy duty canvas like material

the pink and green animal is cotton, the navy dots is rayon I think and the white is faux fur for making monsters

I also got a a nice little picnic basket and a cool red patterned tin goblet. Why all these goblets keep ending up in my basket is beyond me. Seems I have no self control. Sadly, no aprons today. One less thing to explain to my very patient husband I guess.

oddly enough.......fact #1

You know how people send about those little know the ones, five things you didn't know about me, things that may surprise you to know, blah blah, blah, tag you're it, let the whole world know how odd you are sorta games? Or they have a theme day on their blog...self portrait day, check out my breakfast day,(OK, I made that one up but you get the idea) Well, this is sorta like that, except I'm not tagging anyone, and I'm not picking a day, I'm just randomly sharing an odd little fact with you because.....well truthfully I don't really know why. Because I'm odd like that I guess. But secretly you know you are too. So here goes. Odd fact #1.

I hate feet. I hate when people touch my feet, i hate touching other peoples feet, I hate looking at other peoples feet. I think feet are probably the most disgusting part of the body. When I see an old lady in sandals, with her course knotty toes on display for the whole world to see, I shudder. This is probably not so unusual, i suppose it might be considered rather common to have an aversion to feet. However, one of my favorite things to take pictures of is......gasp....... feet. And after giving L the camera for an afternoon it seems she feels the same . A mutual mother daughter feet aversion/fascination.So I share with you what I've never dared share before... a small part of my feet collection. Maybe I'll start a flickr group.
And yes, I am aware that I am more than just a little bit off kilter. Though I prefer the term quirky. Cheers
