I boldly declare that I am single-handedly the biggest and most frequent mess-maker on the planet Earth! I've always been that way. I know I have mentioned this before, but it's painfully true. Almost daily I am reminded of this fact. Today's example:
A Full, Large Glass of Iced Coffee.
It splattered 12 feet in all directions...
Eli helped me clean it up...
Did I mention it went in ALL directions?
I managed to drop it just perfectly so that it hit the edge of the counter, shot half of the coffee onto the countertop, careened off the side of the counter onto a bar stool, shot coffee at least 10 feet into my office and down the side of a credenza, and then fell onto the floor where it shot coffee in two more directions, under the dining room table and UNDERNEATH the seats of the chairs! I swear, I could not have done physics calculations and planned it to be more messy, shoot farther, or cover more surfaces than it did!
So in the future when I mention how messy I am, you know I am not exaggerating!
I started another solid-colored V-stitch blanket last night. Twill be a gift so you won't see any more pictures of it until it's done and in the hands of the recipient.
This is my new coffee cup (tea, actually) that I got at Whole Foods yesterday. If you're drinking tea, you wrap the string of your teabag around the little plastic teapot on the side and place the bag inside to steep. (There's a teabag joke there somewhere, but I won't go there. Hee-hee. I'm sure some of you have no idea what I mean. Get with it, people! Ask a teenager what it might be. They'll know. Okay, don't do that. That could be bad. Just forget I said anything.) But isn't my coffee cup cute? That's a silicone lid and wrapper on it. You can take it to Starbucks and they'll use it instead of a disposable one. And, no, I wasn't using it when I made the mess earlier. Thank goodness.
A Fugi apple I'm going to munch on later. Doesn't it look juicy and wonderful?
