Oh my God, What a mess.

GD#1 came over yesterday to work on a t-shirt quilt that she is making which kinda lead to me beginning an inventory so I know not only what I have but where it is.

sorta like this
We had to search several shelves just to find the unfinished quilt, then we had to look for the thread ripper so she could fix the mistake she had made, then she needed the rotary cutter to cut the patch she needed, (never did find that), but she ended up using scissors cause I could not remember where I had last seen it.

As she was leaving I apologized for not being more organized, she suggested that I do an inventory. Sounded like a good idea to me. I could find out what I have, where it is and cull what I don't want to keep. After I know what I have I'll put them in some sort of order that is what I have that 5 x 5 shelf for.

The last bat house needs a couple of more layers and the clearcoat then it is ready to go. The landlady has found a Welcome sign she likes so I do not need to make one. I may anyway just to see if I can but it is no longer a rush item. As I told her yesterday I am looking for the next project seems like this is a good one to get done.

Seems to me that I have a lot of half finished projects and I've only gone through 3 of the 25 shelves so I'm thinking instead of starting new projects I would be better off completing the ones I already have. Some of them will be much easier with the sewing machine and it will be good practice for me.

Wish me luck.

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't. If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time. Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a  fear  of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic  fears  the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public. Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment:

My Fair Lady

Eliza Doolittle Day is celebrated by fans of the musical  My Fair Lady , a musical based off of George Bernard Shaw's 1912 play  Pygmalion . In the musical, Eliza Doolittle is a  Cockney  flower girl who wants to learn to speak properly. At the time the story takes place, proper speech was a symbol of upward mobility and education. Eliza meets Professor Henry Higgins in  Covent Garden  and he agrees to give her  elocution  lessons. Higgins believes he can transform her from someone who uses words like "ain't" to someone who can fit in with London's elite. In the musical, Eliza dreams of meeting the king. She sings a song, "Just You Wait," to share her thoughts. It is in the song that the date for Eliza Doolittle Day comes from: One day I’ll be famous! I’ll be proper and prim; Go to St. James so often I will call it St. Jim! One evening the king will say: 'Oh, Liza, old thing, I want all of England your praises to sing. Next week on the twentieth of M

Emotional Intelligence - What it is?

 F or those unfamiliar, emotional intelligence is a self-governing initiative to make healthy assessments about how our minds influence quality   behaviour . Such assessments help us to better understand our minds and reduce emotions harmful, yet natural effect on our thoughts and   behaviour . Like the sensory systems, the emotional coping mechanisms you have are not good or bad mostly they just need retuning or at least mine does. Over the next 4 weeks, I'll be looking into each section of Emotional Intelligence and sharing what I find with you. Self-Awareness: The core of Emotional Intelligence is self-awareness. Self-awareness is comprised of three competencies; emotional self-awareness, where you are able to read and understand your emotions as well as recognise their impact on work performance and relationships; accurate self-assessment, where you are able to give a realistic evaluation of your strengths and limitations; self-confidence, where you have a positive and strong s
