Life of a Shiny New Idea (in pictures)

Once upon a time, a shiny new idea popped into my head, and I was like:
 

And to all my friends I was like, “Yeah, I got a shiny new idea.”:

But then I had to think a lot:

And I was like, “I thought shiny new ideas came all assembled!”:

But I wrote and I wrote until I was like:

And, “Squirrel!”:

And “Oooh! Housecleaning!”:

I was going to get back to it, but then I saw this book that looked MUCH more interesting than mine:

And wait, “Is that another squirrel?”:

And then Darling Husband asked how my book was coming, and I’m like, “GET OFF MY BACK, I’ll get to it!”:

“I just really like housecleaning.”:

And then I’m like, “What am I saying?”:

“There are way better ways to waste my time!”:

So how do ya’ll stay on task?

Housekeeping

Yes, this is a lot of what I have been doing today (housekeeping), as I’ve neglected it for the better part of a week. I swear laundry increases exponentially when you ignore it for a day or five.

Not to break my stride, I’ll keep up with the housekeeping here.

First, I wanted to let you know that while I don’t normally blog on Saturday, I have joined in on Elle Strauss‘s First Page Blogfest. I couldn’t resist. The darn thing keeps changing, so I thought I’d appreciate hearing others’ reactions. (Especially from those of you who have read a previous version!). So I’d love it if you would weigh in . . . any comments to help me make it better would be greatly appreciated!

Second, I won a couple of awards a while ago, and I’ve been meaning to publicly thank them for a while now.

Heather at Buried in Books gave me the Versatile Blogger Award.

And Amy at The Green Bathtub gave me The Creative Blogger Award

While I don’t post pictures of awards I’ve received, I’m always so flattered when people think of me and my little blog when bestowing them. It brightens my day to know that I was being thought of in such a nice way. So THANK YOU!

I know the rules require tidbits about myself and bestowing it to others. Since I don’t have the particulars, I’ll just pretend that 5 is a good number on both counts. However, this is getting long, and I have a rule against long blogs, so you’ll have to wait until Monday. Cruel, I know. 😉

Have a great weekend!
