I officially no longer have a telephone in the shop. Sick of the ringing I am. Well, I do still have one but it’s unplugged and it’s going to stay that way. If you have a phone and you answer it maybe three times a month it kind of ceases to be a phone, right? Really it’s just an object that makes an annoying sound. All day long. Like a malfunctioning smoke alarm or a baby. Why listen to that if you don’t have to?
Now I have to find a new form of exercise because my previous regimine consisted of getting up to look at the caller ID when the phone rang and then not answering it.
In other news, it is winter here again. Since late last week or so. My fortitude and sense of denial is no match for the rest of the folks downtown who refuse to put their winter coats back on. I bet they planted stuff outside too. Optimism. That’s what keeps the nurseries in bidness and the sales of cold remedies up. I’m such an old lady. Put on your coat, young man!
So, anyway, I ain’t been up to much this week. Yesterday I made some cute baby fish:
I put some of them on Etsy today. That’s about all I did today besides wear my winter coat and unplug the phone.
I guess I’d be remiss if I did not mention that today is my and Don’s sixth wedding anniversary. It started out as an opportunity for free dental insurance and became so much more. While searching for something bloggable to say about this event, I was delighted to find this tableof traditional and modern anniversary gifts. Do you see what it says under ‘sixth’? Candy and iron? Those are practically my two favorite things! And then, if you click on ‘candy and iron’ you find specific recommended gifts such as a branding iron for steaks. WTF? No one, and I mean NO ONE but me is going to want a personalized steak brand for their anniversary. We eat steak, like, never but I’m sure it would work on other stuff…pancakes or something. I’m kind of bummed now that I didn’t research this earlier and insist on a gift. Oh! I see the brand comes up again for the tenth anniversary so there’s still time. It must really be popular.
But back to me and Don. Our friend Rick said the other day that the people you love the most are the ones who don’t hassle you. That’s something I’ve understood in the back of my mind but never really thought about. Don never hassles me and that’s why I like him so much. And I try not to hassle him. It’s a good thing, too, because I can’t get that steak brand unless we make it to our tenth anniversary.
