Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

Cramming 10lbs of shit into a 2lb bag
Have you ever heard of that saying?
Maybe it's a local farmer saying. If you're from around here you probably should be saying it with a bit of Mainah' accent.
"I reckon it's like crammin' ten pounds of shit inta two pound bag"
You could also add an "ayuh" in there if you want to pretend you're a downeast farmer.
So what is this 10 pounds of shit that I keep talking about. It's all this stuff that used to be my office and fiber room. It's the smallest room in the house but it sure held alot of stuff. I still have no idea where to put my giant maple desk. Sadly I think it's going to have to live in the garage.
I would show you a pic of the mess. Well, maybe I wouldn't. I think it maybe more of a mess than some are able to take with weak hearts and all. I know my Mom doesn't want to see. I tried to get her to take a look but with her heart condition, she declined. I imagine even a person with a good heart might need a trip to the ER after a peak. I wonder if that's what happened to me last week????
Anyway - back to why I can't show you a pic, even with a warning. Ms Digital Camera decided to take some crazy leap from the kitchen table to the butcher block island. I don't know where it got the idea from. It may have been near the TV when we watched Spiderman or some other action flick. Either way it got the idea and it tried to complete this insane act.
Nobody in the house saw the incident. Although some short person did pick up the camera and place it back on the table where it started from. Really, if the camera was that much of a daredevil, it was bound to happen at some point. I suppose it wanted to go out in a blaze of glory. I don't know what made this little hunk of metal and stuff think that it could jump that 4 foot span, especially since it has no legs. I wonder if it was an act of suicide. Kids, suicide doesn't solve anything. It's not worth it. I'm sure any problems the camera and I might have had could have been worked out over time. I know things have been boring around here, but it's really sad to think it could have tried to commit suicide because of it.
Since nothing around here ever gets thrown away and there is always a use for something. I'm thinking of turning it into a toy for the baby. It has a nice rattle now. I would never buy an expensive silver rattle, but I suppose now I have one. It's significantly more expensive than any baby rattle I would have considered buying.
Maybe pictures will return if I can ever figure out how to use my cellphone or the camcorder. Well, I'm not that stupid. I can use both devises, I just can't get the pictures from the device to the computer. I suppose that makes me only slightly stupid or is it technology challenged? I'm pretty sure I need to get them into this computer somehow if I want to show them to you. Unless you all want to gather around the little viewers on either device and look that way. That's about the extent of my ability at the moment.
I did just have the ultimate brainfood for breakfast - cake! Although I don't feel any smarter, I'm sure it will kick in at any time now. So I should be able to come up with something at some point today. That "coming up with something" may just be a conversation with the highly technical husbeast.
Happy humpday - go eat cake.
