ITs a test...Modified for journal use...duh

At the end of this message, you are asked a question. Answer it immediately. Don't stop and think about it. Just say the first thing that pops into your mind. This is a fun "test"... AND kind of spooky at the same time!

You'll understand what that means after you finish taking the test". Now... just follow the instructions as quickly as possible. Do not go to the next calculation before you have finished the previous one.. You do not ever need to write or remember the answers, just do it using your mind. You'll be surprised.

Start: How much is: 15 + 6

3 + 56

89 + 2

12 + 53

75 + 26

25 + 52

63 + 32

I know! Calculations are hard work, but it's nearly over.. Come on, one more! 123 + 5


Scroll further to the bottom....

A bit more...

You just thought about a red hammer! ,

didn't you?

If this is not your answer, you are among 2% of people who have a different, if not abnormal, mind. 98% of the folks would answer a red hammer while doing this exercise. If you do not believe this, pass it around and you'll see. Be sure to put in the subject line if you are among the 98% or the 2% and send to everyone, including the person that sent it to you.

leave me a comment of what you were.
I thought of white and a soldiering iron.

Here but gone

I am here and reading around but still gone.

I will be back...No worries...

Tribey folk I picked up the most steller present for my pal... I can't wait to send it. I think they will love it.

What else to share.

Well Book close outs is having a matching sale.....But I don't know how good there matching books are. I am on a book diet so shall not be indulging.

I am slowly working on my knitting but am having attention problems again. If I can't finish it in a night I should not pick it up.

The pets of the D/M or M/D house are wierd!

The big picture

There is not so much knitting going on this week.

I am resting. But not that much. I pulled out the beads and the tools.

Donni...The spinning was so lovely then I plyed it and now I don't like it.

cloudy words

or a wordy cloud...

So much to say

So tired.

I shopped a lot today. I bought....a soda.

Find out what I thought was cool, covet, and might some day buy...some day when money grows on trees ...

To adorn the body

To warm the hands

To rest ones head

To make you smile

Good night and sweet dreams.

Bun Puffs

Bun puffs remind me of Sharons cream buns Nov. 8th post.

What is a bun puff you ask ......weeeeeeeeeeell.

Its what I have been calling the fiber I got from the Woolen Rabbit. Humor me. You tell me what they look like to you. I think they are mighty cute and very dreamy to the touch. Go look at her shop then drool.

The dandylion color is way more accurate on her site than mine. I love how these mixes shift and change colors. Opening this box was yummy because tucked in the folds of fluff was this....

What I am going to make with these I don't know. But I signed up for a spinning class for March. Tuesday nights 7-9 at Northwest Wools. Its exciting. I would have gone for a class this month but they were full.

Donni was talking about being in a funk and knitabulous about people not understanding crafting. Pertinent to me because I am in a funk and my crafting is getting in others way. Shrug shoulders and knit a bit more.

Here is what else came with the picture. I am excited to try the KM. 

Thanks Donni!
and thanks she who was in SF.


I spent a great portion of the day making stitch markers.
A variety of colors and shapes.
What makes a good stitch marker?
