Random Musings

Hi everyone!

I don’t really have much in the way of sewing to share today, so I am going to share some random thoughts.
Don’t be too scared, most of the time not alot goes on in my head, so it won’t be too deep πŸ˜‰

Am I the only one over Facebook?
Saw this today and it pretty much sums it up for me :

I have to admit, it really is shitting me lately! It’s so tedious getting thru all the crap in my newsfeed.
And don’t get me started on just how freaking hard it is to get any traffic on little sell pages! They are trying to get everyone to pay the ridiculous fees to advertise. Not sure they’ve done their research properly. All that will happen is the little guys trying to eek out a living or make a little extra for their families are going to be the ones who pay the price and close down. {cue shameless plug} My own little page – Two Little Rascals has just over 700 likers and I have to say, things are slow. I have seen market nights not doing well either *sigh*

Speaking of Two Little Rascals, I proudly donated this Raggy Quilt :

Farmers Auction

to The Oz Material Girls Farmer’s Relief Fundraising Action last week!
The poor little fella sold 3 times and was cancelled on 3 times :-/
So I was extremely happy to see him go to a loving new home the other day! πŸ˜€

It’s still pretty hot here. I am fearful we won’t get much of a winter this year.
Does global warming scare you? I know Mother Nature goes thru ebbs and flows … but when she is going thru them,
do the Earth’s inhabitants realise it? Maybe I am more sensitive than I thought! haha

I witnessed a lovely dose of Karma the other day!
I was watering plants, feeding pets, etc at my petminding gig and one of the 2 little girls next door got up on a chair at the fence and started taunting the dogs I was looking after. The dogs, to their credit ignored her. If I had been in my own home I would have just squirted the little shit with the hose I was watering with … but I wasn’t *sigh* … so I was just about to say “Don’t tease the dogs” when she fell off the chair and started screaming bloody murder! haha
Broken chair = $10
Doctors visit for concussion = $90
Petsitter laughing at karma’s sense of justice = Priceless πŸ˜€

I’ve noticed something lately. It’s irritating me … why do people say “My son is almost 6 and my daughter is nearly 4”

Why not just say “My son is 5 and my daughter is 3” ?? They are that age for only a year. Why round up?
Some adults do it sometimes too.
“How old are you?”
“I’ll be 40 in February”
ummmm so short answer is “39”?? o.O

Anyhow … enough of my thoughts. I hope to have some progress shots for you next time!

Catchya on the flip side! πŸ™‚
