One of Those Days

You ever have one of those days where things kind of just stink.  I had one of those today, but I didn't let it get me down *big smile*.  First off, the weather has been so perfect since we got to Cali that I was in rompers and seeing the sun [in October, amazing I know].  Then today, the cold rainy weather from Germany seemed to have found me and that was the first stink.  I went from rompers to boots and a long sleeve.  I even got Boo Bear in her boots and doesn't she look so stinkin cute?!

So, yes I got rained on everywhere I went. I did a teeny tiny bit of shopping and stink number two was the reality of sales tax.  In Germany the sales tax is included in the price so you never really think about the fact that you are paying 19% for tax [zionks!].  Plus we mostly shop on base and it's all tax free.  The price you see is the price you get people.

Okay, so the reality of sales tax isn't such a stinker but the stinkiest stink today was my car battery dying.  I went to pick up my little sister and drop her and her friends to Starbucks to study.  She was nice enough to buy me a coffee [a nice yummy caramel latte], I got back in my car and it wouldn't start.  All I could think was that STINKS!  Turns out my battery was dead.  My brother came to my rescue but he had no cables so we had to buy some then stand in the wonderful rain and jump my car.  Now it works fine so yeay.

The biggest reason it stinks is because all that time wasted kept me from doing any work today!  Oh my gosh people, The Threadery is in two weeks and I am so behind.  The stress of this event is reminding me why I don't like selling stuff I make in the first place....

And speaking of stuff I am selling, here are those passport covers I have finished.

Some repeat prints.

And two new straps.

And something to look forward to, my fresh stack of untouched fabric waiting to be transformed into something beautiful!  Can you see the possibilities?!  So exciting.

I guess I should have known it would be one of those days when this kept happening.  It took me twice as long to take pictures as it usually does.  I can't really blame those cute little curious hands.

So it was just one of those days.  It wasn't a bad day, just an off day.  I actually spent a lot of good quality time with my family.  I am hoping tomorrow will be a brighter and much more productive day.
