This passed Saturday around 12:30ish in the afternoon my boss calls. She starts the conversation with a " Please don't hate me." Already I know that this is bad. She goes on to say that I shouldn't panic and that she is doing enough panicing for the both of us, because there is a really big, tedious rush order needed by Monday. I get a paper and pen ready and she begins reading me the list, a box of martinis, 5 cake domes, 6 carafes.... By the time I'm finished writing my page of 10 1/2"x 8" college ruled paper is filled. Despite her warning, I'm panicing. Two days, shes only given me two days. Normally a list of this size would take me a weeks to complete. I hang up the phone after her farewell of " Go work your fingers to nubs." After proclaiming that I'm going to die, I head to my work table in utter dismay. This is impossible, I'm only one person with only two hands. I label the list appropriately, "The List of Death" and begin. Ignoring unnecessary things, like eating, and breathing, I work continually. Completing each piece with the utmost of care. I was glad that there was always someone in the house just in case if my eyes were to fall out. My mind spun with my painting wheel. I finished the list today at 4:00pm, well most of it, I ran out of green paint and was out of 11''bowls. But over all, it was done. She was going to pick the boxes up at 5:30. My eyes never fell out and my fingers are still intact...for now anyway. I have another list larger than the impossible one for October 5th and still another for October 13th. Pray for me. But the impossible is possible!!!

Once again nothing has been happening in my life lately. What can I say I'm just not that interesting. I have been working my fingers to the bone at work painting my heart out. I am also working on a painting of a barn which isn't finished yet. It is coming along nicely (no pictures yet). I took this wonderful picture of my cat yesterday, isn't he the cutest thing ever.
Once again fall soccer has started. They have had two games so far and they have lost both of them. We are heading out tomorrow morning for the yearly tournament, wish them luck.
Once again I'm working on a tattoo. This one is by far the hardest one yet, I'm not that great with people. My friend got this picture off line and wanted me to fix the proportions. The original picture was an elf and I had to change him into a human. So far this is what I have:I'm afraid to do the head. I know that I just have to do it and it will be fine but starting is the hard part.
Once again I have to add my chickens. They are so big now. We ended up with three roosters and six hens. Mom want out the coop the other night and found them sleeping together on the roost with one of the babies on the momma's back. It was so very funny. Once again here is something naturey. We found a really big fairy ring in the front yard. It was hard to see in the picture so I added a red line on the inside of the mushrooms. We're hoping the mushrooms get bigger so its more pronounced.
Once again I'll be back... *Evil laugh*
