So today I am procrastinating...

I have a couple of must-dos today on my to-do list. Instead of getting started on them, I am "busy" on Pinterest. Did I mention I can't stand Pinterest? I find it is a waste of time and space and it's like the whole internet is getting thrown at me, in badly-tagged picture form, but there is no good search engine to help me find just what I'm looking for...and there are pictures of toys from when I was a kid, and half-naked men (and women) and crude jokes that I thought were meant only for FailBook and LOL cats...

I think mostly Pinterest just puts stress on our to-do lists, that are already so long as it is.

If I can get done the smattering of things I need to get done in a day, without having Pinterest both add to my load, and take time away from me accomplishing things, then I will be satisfied.

And yet, here I am. Wandering through the art and DIY sections of the site.

And this is the cynical me talking, in case you hadn't noticed.

I don't think anyone ever taught me: "if you don't have something nice to say, then don't say anything at all." Or they, did and the lesson didn't stick...obviously.

There's also a lesson in there that if you don't like doing something, then don't do it.

So I won't. And that is that.

I did, however, find two "projects" on Pinterest that I want to try. Actually, they are more like tips on projects that were already on my to-do list, but having a little extra help might not be so bad.

Make my own little doodle calendar...to keep track of P.A.L. goings-on.


Terrariums!! This excites me to no end...



Oh my...I found something nice to say about Pinterest. I will also say that I fully admire and am in awe of those ladies who use Pinterest only for good, and get loads of great ideas from it and actually put those to use! Those ladies either deserve some mad props, or a good shake...the jury is still out on that one.

Now if only I could find some useful small-space kitchen organization tips, instead of just beautiful pictures of *beautiful *giant, *perfect, *white, *amazing, *expensive kitchens.

There my mouth goes again...I really need to keep it in check! But that's another blog post entirely!



p.s. in case you haven't figured it out, there will be no mini album this week. I am going to be busy completing an apron for the Silent Auction at Wendy's Crop (at TM this weekend). This is at the top of the list. Followed closely behind by return library material and attend Lucas' assembly. I'm planning to finish off the month of minis next week!

  1. Well as "that lady" I can tell you that it is a little of both. If I spent half as much time making stuff as I did online I wouldn't have a DIY list.... It would all be done.
    Who knows... I most likely will never know. ;)

  2. You know, I've never even been to Pinterest. And my life is pretty complete. (but I rely on you...lol!)
