Why do I hate vacuming so much? I did not realize this until lately. We used to live in a house with wood floors so it was not a big problem to keep them clean. The broom handled messes very easily and it was so easy to spot clean here and there. But, with carpets you have to get out the vacum cleaner, plug it in, move furniture around and since you are doing all that you might as well make a good job of it while you are at it –such a hassle!
But I kept on and got it done –well mostly done. There is still the bedroom to vacum and the bathroom. Hubby just does not understand why I don’t like carpet in the bathroom. He says I would just cover up a wood floor with scatter rugs anyway. Ya gotta love them. Yes, I would put scatter rugs in there, but they would be rugs I could put in the washer whenever I felt the need. The way it is now, I imagine all sorts of evil going on under that carpet in that bathroom. Just gives me the creeps.
So, now I am on an origami kick. I am trying to come up with hybrid Christmas Ornaments but every one I can find has hundreds of little folds or requires you to make 400 pieces or something. While that would be a fun thing for me to do, I don’t believe I would be the norm on that.
But I am amazed at how much it has changed since the last time I looked into origami. In my youth we made cranes and frogs and stuff. Then, later during my teaching days we made fancy package toppers. But the items I am finding now are totally way beyond anything I ever did before. They even have some new names for it –Kusudama, Sonobe and modular origami. And now I am seeing GLUE and STAPLES –that was a big no-no before. I think I found one I can modify to make it a little easier to make and for making directions. But, it is going to take some time.
I made a layout! actually I made two layouts. One I made at the Speed Scrap that Crazy Diamond hosts every Saturday night. This last Saturday, we baptized the new Chat room software I purchased. There were a few ladies with problems logging in but that was solved–was a pop up blocker for one and a password error for the other. Here is the layout I made.

Then, Tuesday, I made another layout –I’m on a roll here, two layouts in one week! This was some photos hubby took when we went riding on the Gold Wing on Sunday. Those rides are so nice. This one is also linked to the gallery so you can see the credits.
Bye for now, off to do some more paper folding.
