Since I'm not planning any trips to Brookyln in the near future- man am I going to be beat! So it sounds funny- but I'm having these weird leg issues. I swear it is restless leg syndrome... but I don't know for sure. So I am up at 4:30 blogging and trying to finish Harry POtter. No- I haven't finished it yet! Yes I am aware plenty of 8 year olds have finished it. But c'mon I have to work- I'm not some little kid who has the summers off- free to frolic and read all day & night!
Hermione is up with me- she's asleep on the coffee table- because I am sure there are no more comofrtable places for her ie. her soft bed, couch our bed. She's stubborn. We've been having issues with her not eating and her brother ( adopted brother) Jasper eating way too much and going to every length to do so. Thursday Night they even started fight.. growling & everything. We seperated them for a few hours then they seemed to be okay.
I have not stepped foot on my sewing machine since well past a week & a half ago. It feels like writer's block. only with sewing. Sewer's block. I've been pinning pieces together- making appliques to be sewn but I have not yet started the send off of items throgh the HuskSt*r. I have 2 weddings coming up- one on Sat Aug 18 the other on Sept 15. This Saturday is the shower/bachelorette party for Maureen the Sept 15th bride. But I have been feeling like my own wedding is coming up.. just with nerves & feeling so tired.
Last night I went to bake with the girls.. but it turned out Brig is baking tomorrow and Suzanne's was the easiest thing to make. So I made a few cookies ( hearts, lips, umbrellas) and brought the rest of the dough home to be refrigerated and used Friday night.

Oh Darn! I Over Baked!!
Brig the Bride to Be 8.18.07 and me
Here are a few snapshots of the cookies experience as well as the scones that I made the other day.- Sue wouldn't let me take her photo. The Lip cookies looked like moustaches- the umbrellas like Mushrooms lol. Look as Brig demonstrates.
They turned out deliciously light with a hint of butter. I wanted to make a vegan recipe- since these 1/2 came from one of my Vegan cookbooks, but I panicked while at Sue's house and folded in 2 eggs. I wasn't sure how the recipe would turn out so I used her mom's Betty Crocker book from the 1950's or 60's and borrowed "Ethel's Sugar Cookie recipe"- thanks Ethel!
Well I still have so much to do for the shower & bachelorette party Saturday. Including what to wear. I haven't refashioned too much and I could never quite figure out the right way to post on the refashion page.. but I am enjoying everyone else's posts.
So much to do so little time & money :)
Maybe I'll go try and read a little more HP7 before the sun rises.
P.S If you have not yet seen Notes on a Scandal with Dame Judi Dench & Cate Blanchett.. please oh please go rent this. It was really amazing!
