Staring at the keyboard...


Waiting for inspiration. Somedays the blog post is there, no fuss, it just comes right along when I need it. And then there are days like today. No inspiration, time ticking away. This is the same process I have when I write a letter from the editor, in case you were wondering. Here's how it goes...

No new knitting or crochet to report progress on...
I am rushing through clearing up my sewing room to celebrate National Quilting Day Saturday but right now it's just a pile of rubble...
No recent stupid stories...well, I could tell about the dream that I had with the disposable razor and the trip to the tire shop...but then people might think I'm weird.
Sneak peek...that's what this is supposed to be about anyway...but that's really working and who wants to do that?

I've been thinking about this a while. Maybe it's time to take a break. Look, I should really go and clean that up over there...
(Shuffling, moving, stacking, huffing, pushing, pulling, etc.)

OK, maybe today's some sort of holiday...brief internet search because you can find anything you want there....aha! It's Johnny Appleseed Day!

Johnny Appleseed

(born Sept. 26, 1774, Leominster, Mass. — died March 18?, 1845, near Ft. Wayne, Ind., U.S.) U.S. pioneer and folk hero. He was trained as a nurseryman and began c. 1800 collecting apple seeds from cider presses in Pennsylvania. He then traveled west to the Ohio River valley, planting apple seeds along the way. He tended 1,200 acres of his own orchards and was responsible for hundreds of square miles of others, having sold or given away thousands of apple seedlings to pioneers. His kind and generous nature, devout spirituality, affinity for the Indians and the wilderness, and eccentric appearance (including bare feet, a coffee-sack shirt, and a mush pan for a hat) helped make him a figure of legend.

I hope something exciting happens today because I have no idea what we can celebrate on March 12.

Careful sister. That's exactly how I talked myself into a 2-week blogger's holiday.
