This morning I made sloppy joes for dinner, but had to run to the grocery store right in the middle of it when I realized we had no barbecue sauce. Later in the morning I royally ticked my sister off. Early this afternoon I got into an argument with Mac. Therefore this evening I was super grumpy with Sean who was super patient with me. I wrote a new lecture, created a new class activity, put together a semester final and organized my three classes for tomorrow. I wrapped my niece's 5th birthday gift just in time to drop it off tonight. I had this scattered mess on my work counter at 5:39pm.
I have never really liked purple. It's pretty much the only color I do not like. Well, I take that back, growing up Mr. Pine's Purple House was one of my favorite books. Other than that...no purple.
Lately though I have found myself a little drawn to it...to the point where I took a coupon and bought a purple patent leather planner...after studying all the choices for months. I am not usually a fan of patent leather either, so I really do not know myself at this point.
I have more to set up (and a lot more holes to punch), however I made a couple of items so far. I took an old Hambly transparency for a cover and took a piece of patterned paper, trimmed and sewn into a pocket.
Since I was a teenager, my mom has taught me a love of planners and Filofax has always seemed to be the ultimate. Therefore the purple planner is pretty darn exciting.
A couple new planner details (in a crazy new planner)...packets of Thanksgiving stickers to mail to my eight year old niece and nine year old sister...crocheting a throw for the end of the couch with a super random collection of thick yarn and huge crochet hook.
