I spent twenty minutes in 100 degree heat arranging bits of vegetation into a word. I was in complete awe of how a green bean can grow into a perfect circle or "u" shape. I can't let that pass by me without doing something with it can I?
What a merciless taskmaster Inspiration is. She doesn't care how hot it is outside, she only cares that you craft!
(Now that you have that in-depth preface)
I slithered back into the house, glistening with sweat, breathing a little heavier from my crafty-sweatshop workout and I proudly showed my husband the above picture on my camera's play back mode.
Hubs: (comfortably sitting in his recliner, playing dorky bird game on his iphone. Stares at the picture, squints, says nothing)
Me: (waiting with a goofy smile on my face, while intently watching his face for a reaction)
Hubs: (stills says nothing)
Me: Can't you read it?!
Hubs: No. Wait, "gorcen"?
Me: Huh? (I look back at the play back screen, searching for "gorcen")
Hubs: What's that supposed to be? (points at the yellow cucumber flower)
Me: That's an "a". (as soon as I say it, I see how it's not so much like an "a")
Hubs: Oh, that's a "d". (pointing to the chili pepper and near invisible thyme sprig)
As I walk into the kitchen, I take time to toot my own horn on how creative I thought it was and how adorable the vegetables were, my voice trailing off behind me. From there I schlepped my deflated-balloon self to my computer to upload my un-readable vegetable word. Wah, wah.
I hate it when you craft in Sahara-like temperatures and you get no reaction, no reaction at all, I tell ya!
That's all. Just a little something to share.
It says "garden" by the way. But I know you guys got it, right?
Love ya, Foodies!
