Today we acquired a new member of the family. His name is Moses. He is a cute little beagle.

I found him today at the office. He was milling around the parking lot and almost went on the interstate. When I found out that they were going to call Animal control, I decided to take him home. The kids are in love.

Of course, if we find out that someone is looking for him we will have to return him... But until then we are happy to keep an eye on him.

Etsy Goodness

I was searching for local merchants on Etsy and found this wonderful shop: GeoBubStudios.

From their shop profile:

Everything here is handmade by us, Deb and George. Our glazes are also all our own formulations. We use only the highest quality porcelain clay, imported from England. Porcelain is the hardest and most durable of all clays after it's been fired, while at the same time it has a delicate, fine-grained appearance. All of our porcelain pieces are completely safe for food and will go in the dishwasher and microwave.

Living for the weekend

Lately, I have felt that I am literally, living for the weekend. Meaning I postpone anything of personal importance till the weekend. This has got to stop. I must reclaim my Monday-Friday.

I thought of a few things that might help me in my goal...

1. Reclaim my lunch hour. No more spending my lunch hour in front of my computer, working...
2. Make more lists. Lists are my own personal compass. They help me get things done. Nothing feels better than crossing something off a list...
3. Making dinner. Take out are two words that need to eliminated from my vocabulary.
4. Exercise. I am going to commit to waking every morning and doing Yoga. It makes me feel so much better. Why do I skip this?

My husband and I were watching the new Sci Fi show, Warehouse 13 and he explained the whole genre of SteamPunk. I love this stuff. It evokes feelings of Victorian drawing rooms and Hellboy.

So, I took to the intraweb to see what I could find... Take a look at these great Steampunk gadgets posted by Toxel.

Apparently, there are tons of other cool things you can make like A Victorian RV:

The RV used to be a school bus. Check it out at Steampunk Workshop
