Welp, my coffee maker died this morning.
Yes, so sad. I have one of those coffee makers that doesn’t have a carafe but instead has a reservoir built in. You put your cup up to the lever and like magic, coffee comes out. This morning, like devil’s magic, it continued to pour out and leaked all over the counter onto the floor. My brain did not know how to compute the fact that I may not be having my morning cup of joe. I never start a day without my beloved dark brew. But I must say, that coffee maker has put in many years of reliable, delicious coffee so I can’t be mad. On the bright side, I found my french press that I bought like 10 years ago. Hot water + coffee grinds = happy me! Problem solved.
This morning at 8 a.m. was my first on-campus class of the semester. Exercise and Weight Control. Hey, it was a 1 credit hour class that I needed and who doesn’t like a P.E. class? So it was time to pull out the old sneakers. Yes, I know, I don’t wear socks. Gross. And yes, my feet do stink. Don’t judge me, I hate socks. Nothing a little baking soda won’t fix. So it turns out this class might actually be what I need. I’ve wanted to start working out but I find crafting to be more therapeutic but now I have the chance in this class. Our instructor (a handsome bald black man who coaches the basketball team) said that he would help us to lose, gain or maintain our weight. In my case it’s maintain. I would however, like to tone down these man arms I’ve got. I’ve never had feminine arms at any point in my life.
So are you wondering why I’m rambling on about my morning instead of sharing with you how to execute a fabulous craft? Yeah, me too. Sadly, I don’t have a craft for you today but I didn’t want to leave you hanging. I have a lot of ideas in my head but no finished products. This weekend was spent doing school work and creating more inventory for my Etsy shop. I hope you can forgive me and still continue to come back. I promise I will bring you more funsies and less of my ramblings. I’ll leave you will this bit of inspiration, though. I got an email from one of my readers, Charlie. She made one of her own steering wheel covers using my instructions and even made a felt bead necklace to hang from the mirror like mine! She sent me a picture and it has just made my day!
Have a great Monday you guys!
