Posts Tagged ‘Birthday’

Basically this is my to-do list for the next two weeks, which I’m sharing with you in hopes of justifying the fact that I probably won’t post again any time before mid-May.

In the next two weeks, on top of my regular classes, I have to complete two final projects for my two metals classes (Forming and Enameling). I have to run four Habitat fundraising sales. I have to organize and run the Metals Jewelry Sale (also make jewelry for it), on the same day as one of my Habitat Sales. I have to write a final essay for my education class. I have to study for my History of Jazz final. I have to glaze everything I’ve made in Ceramics in the last month. I have to go shopping for, then make hundreds of bagged lunches for, and then participate in Midnight Run through Habitat for Humanity. I will be spending next weekend with my Habitat group on a retreat. I will be moving out of my apartment the weekend after that. I have to make a Mother’s Day gift for my mom, I have to make a birthday gift for my brother. I have to figure out my work schedule for the summer. I have to finish festival applications and processes for the summer.

I maintain that I am not a negligent blogger just because I’m too busy actually living life to find time to write about it.

Woohoo!!! 101!

This is my 101st post in this blog. Yay me!

I thought the image was fitting, since I’m a farmer’s daughter, and I found it here.

As it happens I did a lot today! I woke up at the unreasonable (for a Saturday) hour of 6:30 to ride into Newburgh with my dearest Habitat crew for a freezing cold morning of demolition and organizing. I’ve never been to a build in Newburgh because I’m usually working, but I had a great time! The volunteers are clearly a tight group, and there are certainly a lot of characters! I spent the better part of the morning sorting through a warehouse full of old and new donated building supplies and taking inventory. My toes were good and frozen by the end of it all, but we got a lot done.

From Newburgh I went straight to the studio and it’s from there I just returned. I cleaned the hell out of my space, and I’m wishing that I had the energy to do the same to my apartment, but I’m pooped!

Another bit of very important news is that I’ve just finished the last bite of the best chocolate I’ve ever eaten. Messico, by Maglio of Italy is the BEST. It also retails at $10 a bar. That’s $10 more than I have available to spend on chocolate, so if anyone is wondering what to get me for my birthday, now you know!! I’m also not opposed to trying their dark chocolate varieties. Hint, hint.

In other, other news I just had some of Progresso’s Hearty Black Bean soup for dinner, and I think it’s a new favorite! Especially with grilled cheese…yum!

I’ve finished two books in the past week, and I’ll post about them separately, and then I’m off to knit!

Cosmos – OOAK, originally uploaded by Soasa Designs.

In two weeks I’ll be 20 which is a lame age because you get the responsibility of not being a teen anymore, but no new privileges. I’ve decided that this isn’t fair, and if I can’t be rewarded for my age, at least someone should be!

So! Since I owe it to all my customers that I’m able to buy groceries, and thus live to be 20, you are the ones who will be rewarded! For every $20* you spend between now and March 4th I’ll give you 20% off! Now, if you were on my mailing list I would also be telling you the secret code for free shipping. E-mail me at RobinMarie at SoasaDesigns dot com if you’d like to be added!

Valentine’s Day is passed, but Mother’s Day is coming, though really, do you need an excuse to buy jewelry?

* This offer does not apply to Team NOLA purchases, of which 50% are donated to Habitat for Humanity SUNY New Paltz.
