I've had a difficult few days... it's the crawl into bed or dig a hole and bury oneself kind of week. Embarrassing, frustrating, confusing, maddening... all of it. Things have been difficult and confusing at work, I have found myself dealing with many anxieties and hard feelings, my first fore into beekeeping found a bee up my jeans and provided me with my first bee sting in many years, and yet... I'm trying to look on the bright side of things. Those flowers and new books have helped. I purchased Ashley English's Keeping Bees because I have a great deal to learn about them. A great deal indeed. The Heather Ross Prints book is one I'm so very excited about. The thought and opportunity of using those beautiful and whimsical prints on everything from card-stock to rice paper to good old fabric is well worth the price of this one. And finally, I've chosen Gone Girl as the first of my fall reads.Typelists (an element of Typepad), of course, will not allow me to add them to my sidebar because it must also be difficult this week! Ack! Luckily each day is a new opportunity to turn the smallest (bee stings) or biggest (feelings about work) around... I'm so looking forward to that turn my friends. Here's hoping your week is filled with much happiness and less frustration!
