Crazy as a Loom

Friday, June 24, 2011


I love hearing from all of you.  It is encouraging, and empowering somehow to know you are all out there reading my blog.  But sometimes, when I try to answer your questions, or just say thanks, I get  "no reply @ blogger, and I am unable to get back to you. is how to change that, if you are so inclined.

If you would like people to be able to email you back after you leave a comment, here's how you change those settings.

1. Click on the Customize link in the upper right hand corner of your screen.
2. Click on the Dashboard link in the upper right hand corner of your screen.
3. Click on Edit Profile, which is on the left hand side of the screen next to your picture.

4. This will take you to the Edit User Profile screen.
5. Look in the Privacy section.
6. Check the box that says, "Show my email address".

7. In the Identity section, enter in an email address.
8. Scroll down to the bottom of the screen and click on Save Profile.

When you add your e-mail address in the above spot, it does not change the e-mail address that you use to log-in. I'm assuming that most of you have a personal e-mail address and generic blog e-mail address. I entered my generic blog e-mail address in that spot. My personal e-mail address is still where I recieve notifications of new comments and it is what I use to log in to blogger.

And to answer the question about my I do not use a product called Dye Be Gone.....I was just being a smart ass, you ......gone!!!

Today I tried to get my 86 year old mother interested in going to the Senior Center, for maybe a Bingo game, or some other event.  She needs a little companionship during the day, she is feeling especially lonely without Eddie here with her.  I am at the studio all day, and DH is in and out, so she spends a lot of time alone.
She made a face at my suggestion, and said, " I'm not about to spend time with a bunch of old people."
I am speechless at that.
WTH????  Are ya' kidding me???

The day went from rainy and dismal, to almost laughable, things were going so bad.

I kept waiting for the bluebird of happiness to land on my shoulder.
But it didn't look good.

But sometimes, let's face it, life ain't no bed of roses.

And if you think it is, there is sure to be a thorn or two to remind you of your foolishness.

After a totally failed attempt to do something fun with my grandkids, the weather was not cooperating, I went to the studio for a couple of hours.  I putzed around, doing a little accounting, a little sewing.  I sewed for quite a while before I realized that there was no thread in the bobbin.  Did this ever happen to you???

Then I had some rugs returned, and was a bit shocked that one of them was WET.

I picked up a tube of lotion, thinking that I might like to put some on my hands, and the tube exploded in my hand, with coconut soupy liquid everywhere.
Just about then, I decided to give it up, cautioning myself to drive well on the way home.  My luck was not looking good.

One highlight.  L vacuumed the entire studio while I was away, and it looks terrific.  I'm gonna stop saying good things about her though, in case someone reads them and decides to steal her from Crazy as a Loom.

I am afraid to ask why the rug was wet, that is gross! Sydney is correct, tomorrow is another day! Where is Rhett when we need him?

Karen said...

Love that chubby girl.

Wine. And Whine if you must... but really, wine!

MarthaVA said...

UGH, what a crappy day! I do hope tomorrow is a MUCH better day for you. And yeah, I've done the sewing along happily thing, then realize the bobbin ran out long ago. Grrrrrrrrrrr!

Love that Sydney.

Have a wonderful, happy, great weekend!

Some days are just like that. Then it is best to sit and read a book.

I remember when my mother lived with me and I would try to get her out of her room and she informed me that her bed and her TV were her "best friends"! She later moved to a retirement home and was the "belle of the hall." Nancy

Thanks for the tip about the email connection. I had never "checked" the little box!!! Tonight is a good night to just prop your feet up and read a book and enjoy your favorite adult beverage!

You are just sooooooo darned real and that is what we all love about you. Life is ups and downs, good thing it slides up and down that continuum and we know we are not stuck in one place forever. Your kitties are just the best. You are even better.
Wishing you a peachy weekend.

Deb said...

I just love tubby tabbies. I have one, too. Wishing you a better day tomorrow with threaded needles.

That Janie Girl said...

I love how you write. You're! Good stuff.

I feel your frustrating day right along with you, and I wish I could make it better. Maybe it was just something atmospheric or astronomical, because you are not the only one I know who had a yesterday that they wanted to be finished with. I hope today is better for you.

Old people. Hilarious. Ya gotta laugh. If the rug was a "return", I think I would "return to sender" telling them I don't accept wet rugs back. People!!! They are enought to make a bad day worst!!

Hope your next day & next day & next day (you get the idea) are good ones! Why oh Why can't I get logged in to leave comments half the time anymore?? Donna S.

Yuck on the wet rug... bad enough to get 40 lashes with a wet noodle, but a wet rug???

Dad was telling me how he helped an "elderly lady" with a project. Turns out she is 71 and he is 74!
