Nearing the end of this self imposed challenge.. and it's really not flowing this.. writing for the blog thing... If I was to look around me right now and do a stream of consciousness word list of it... well let's try that ...
red tea pot, red thred, Color of Woman workbook, speakers, tissues, cups, candle, iphone, postitnotes, apple, orange pen, Terrain of the Heart question sheet, pink pen, painting of Gypsy and Phoenix on the easel, Lady of Alchemy on another easel.... diary, lists, rubbish, sharpener, bulldog clip... clouds in the formation of a heart on a bag, lady with an axe...
oh gee this is going... all over the shop isn't it...
Little potatoes and sweet potatoes baking in the oven.. timer on.. I'll have to dash down there shortly.. it's really a 'no news day'...
I tried again to complete the sewing project of making a dress or pinafore thing out of a men's denim shirt... IT. IS. NOT. WORKING. OUT. AS. I. WOULD. LIKE. IT. TO. so that's a boring story :( the mannequin that I have borrowed (and have kept for far too long) is adjusted to my size.. but she has a flat tummy and .. I .. don't.. so the finished article looks so much better on the mannequin... of course... that's how the stores trick us on a daily basis! haha.
Watched the modern version of Hansel and Gretel - The Witch Hunters , last night... Oh My Gosh.... Gretel was a kick arse cool chick! I loved her! She headbutted an eejit guy and I have to say.. it was very satisfying... there have been people in my past I may have liked to do that very same thing to.
THE BODY OF THE WORLD by Eve Ensler
On a very sobering note... I read an excerpt from a book today... you know how you follow your nose from a lead on fb.. well I did that and ended up in Amazon reading more ... somehow on my phone.. it allowed me to click through and read a large section the author had made available to be read... an amazing woman 'Eve Ensler' author of 'The Vagina Monologues' ... with stories that would blow my brains out I'm sure. It kinda snapped me out of my day to remember how much I have to be thanful for.
That's about it for now,
love Denise xo.

“There are very few human beings who receive the truth, complete and staggering, by instant illumination. Most of them acquire it fragment by fragment, on a small scale, by successive developments, cellularly, like a laborious mosaic.”
