Halfway there...

When I decided to flog myself with this NaBloPoMo challenge, I thought I was nuts. And I was right...
This is really hard. I already had heaps of respect and admiration for Norma and Sandy and others who have been blogging 365 - now I know I should just fall down and worship at their feet. I'm slogging after 14 days - how the hell do you stay fresh and interesting for 365??? (And they do - that's the part that really gets me. I can't wait to see what they've written next.)
I had one of those days at work where my brains turned to pudding again. I work in retail, it's Saturday, and I'm in Customer Service. You can fill in the blanks. By 4:00 I wanted to just go sit in the corner and do the "be-ba-be-ba" lip-twiddle thing.
So, since I can't think of anything to say, I'll show you a picture of something I do. In my sidebar, I mention being a dollmaker. Here's a couple I made:
This is Horatio and his Great-Aunt Serafina. Notice she's wearing a hand-knitted stole. She insisted.

This, plus the knitting and spinning. Color me impressed! I've always admired dollmakers and yours are really, really cute.

Love the dolls!!! Yes, writing 365 is very difficult. Lucky if I do it twice a week.

Hi Gayle:

I can't seem to reply to you when you leave me a comment. (perhaps your settings) and I couldn't find your e-mail address, perhaps it's just me so this is the only way I know how to contact you.

They are wonderful! Too bad you can't take them out when the customers are ugly and shake them at them.

The 365 must be impossible.
