Happy birthday to eustaciavye and [Unknown LJ tag]!

Medical
Bed at midnight, woke up at 2, back to bed at 4, woke up for good at 9. So. Still not getting an accurate non-tired picture of how I'm doing.

I will be bringing my infamous molasses ginger cookies to the Goblin Fruit party tomorrow night. Because gingerbread is Traditional, you know. Mostly for witches. But for at least one Goblin Queen.

Link Soup
* Whee! New Bordertown anthology!
* SyFy seeks next big space opera. I want a Vorkosigan series. With Peter Dinklage as Miles.

Daily BPAL
Litha: Golden honey and moss, with honeysuckle, chamomile, parsley, white gardenia, frankincense, carnation, vervain, gum arabic, yarrow, and liquid copal.
In bottle: ACK GARDENIA OH HAI
On me: Floral feh. :(

St. John's Eve: A summer bonfire, with frankincense and myrrh, bay rum, and white rose.
In bottle: Campfire. With a man. A really good-smellin' man.
On me: Resins and bay rum, yum, and the luscious campfire smell. Very evocative.

Plans
I was a bit more active yesterday, so today maybe I'd be up to more houseworky stuff. Silly thing I gotta do: figure out what yarn goes with what project. Because I have a bunch of yarn and a bunch of queued projects, but I'm frozen so far as starting, because I have difficulty holding multiple options in my head, and so wait, was I holding onto that for the shawl? or was I making a scarf out of it? and if I'm wrong, I don't have enough of this for that... so I need to just dump the yarn bag out, evaluate, and write stuff down.

And I should check out my craft cart and see what I have for making more Blogathon stuff. There are two lovely necklaces on deck for House Tamra (from qotcpcf and glinda_w) - must touch base with upstart_crow and see which House(s) she's making (a) necklace(s) for, so I can get stuff set up for the others. And whatever other projects I'm making stuff for. Need to touch base with people who offered stuff a while ago but havent commented since, to make sure they're on board. I may not actually need to make anything else, but I need to be sure.

Tonight, Adam and I hope to finally see Moon; Elayna's staying at Explo. She's singing this at tomorrow's talent show.

And how are you?

Have you tried Ravelry? It's not perfect, but it's helpful for things like keeping a prioritized project list and associating yarns with planned projects.

Yep, I'm on there! Same name as here. It's just a matter of setting aside time to get it done.

When organizing my quilting projects, I use gallon-sized plastic bags to hold things specific to a project, so they cannot ever get mixed up into "general" again. Those funny little zipper bags that pillowcases come in are also great for organizing. Maybe using some ziplocs or something similar would help you out as well?

An excellent idea!

You it's been awhile since someone asked that and ment it.

I'm trying to hold on to life.

I'm also starting to hate the weather around here, does anyone know what the sun looks like????

"And how are you?"

All the better for seeing you, m'dear! =:o}

(You may have gathered, I haven't been reading you regularly lately. I had to shift a bunch of high-volume posters and high-"links to stuff I can't bear not to read now I know about it!" posters over to my "PLEASE, not every frickin' day, fer Chrissake!" reading list, and you er, got caught in the net. {COUGH} [BLUSH] [APOLOGETIC SMILE] =:o} )

OH! For Peter Dinklage to play Miles Vorkosigan. I could die a happy woman.

Mad wild crush on that man.

I've made a crystal necklace for the idea shops and have supplies on hand to make earrings.

I am working on a necklace and earrings for the Thorn and Bone story. I might also do a bracelet, if I can figure it out (I've never made a bracelet before).

I have 99% of what I need for Ruby's necklace of opals and pearls - just waiting on the clasp to come in the mail.

Wonderful! :)

I'm putting the auctions up first thing on Monday, July 20 - so if you could get me pics and descriptions by the 19th, that would be great. :)
