It’s another one of “those stories”. The kind that makes other people shake their head at me while I’m busy being annoyed at myself.
It starts well but the best stories always do. I was going to do a #FinishitFriday post with two creative projects that have been dragging on for ages. Like never mind ages, try years. So when I completed the trip photo album Friday am I was so excited by the thought that I would do an upbeat blog post that harkened back to my early blog days featuring creative items.
The other item finished was from a zoom class I took last May. Feeling uninspired I felt it was time to stretch my creativity and take a rug hooking class. Simple enough to do but…. it sat unfinished for months. The original frame we MacGyvered was ok but not for using in the easy chair. And seems I wanted to sit I had to try something else. Months later I finished it so it could get off the pile of to do hand work. But then what to do with it? I follow a “hooker’s” blog and she often fastens hers onto a unique item. Enter the left over shingles that escape the wood pile on a windy day. Dried off, cleaned it up and some hot glue later it was ready for a display spot.
But so why is it Sunday and why the delay in posting? What makes it one of those stories? Well it has the same theme as Washing Day and inside it is the link for the other similar post.. but this time I didn’t wash my phone. It slid off the counter and the corner chipped on the tile floor. Frozen in time and 100% inaccessible. It’s like I am a phone slayer. I know being a dragon slayer is more high profile but that’s the way my life goes ..🐲
So while I had photos of the project they were now gone. Luckily I had uploaded photos 2 weeks ago so only “lost” a few. I picked up a phone for zero. But ROFLOL… the case, screen protector and warranty were not zero. I had to change brands as what I had is no longer sold in North America as it’s not compatible with Google. So it’s like starting over. Which reminds me I need to turn off this sound the occurs when I type.
So the quick little finish it Friday post was high jacked. I am still going to post it even though it’s now Sunday as the world keeps spinning. Kind of like my head searching for the . on the screen. 🌍🧐
