So on Monday, I was absent. I took a sick day.
No. That’s not true. That would be a lie.
I actually have all these days at work that I spent the last four years saving up for ‘rainy days’ and now I have to use them before my last official day or lose them forever. So outta my last 15 work days, I only have to head into the office for 9. Pretty sweet, huh?
But that means you guys are BowerPowerless. It’s cause I still don’t have a home computer. Remember that whole post where we discussed how I, a blogger, don’t have a computer? Remember that awkwardness?
So now there is that weird silence. I am just waiting for my birthday to roll around so that my dear sweet hunky boyfriend to give me something that can support Photoshop…and praying that I don’t receive anymore scented lotions. I have spent the last seventeen years receiving scented lotions. ENOUGH WITH THE LOTIONS. I think I have a shmorgasboard of lotions in our closet right now…vanilla, chocolate, apple, vanilla apple, vanilla floral…the list goes on and on. I can’t even reach my feet to put on the scented lotions thus making me more irritable. And the only thing that goes on the tummy-region is the cocoa butter stuff…which actually does remind me of chocolate…which makes me hungry for cookies & brownies & twenty-teen pounds of Dove dark chocolates…and that’s not even close to as as scrumptious smelling as the ACTUAL chocolate lotion…which smells like I should be squirting it directly down my esophagus.
Anyway. So now that I am finished with my lotion shpeal…wanna know what I did on my day off?
I made these:
They are what I call Headache pillows. They are filled with rice and can be heated up or thrown in the freezer for when the headache or shoulder ache or the _______(fillintheblank) ache happens to hit.
And because nobody wants to smell like rice…I added some of the loose tea leaves from this delicious tea:
Hmm. It is soooo good. And surprisingly, it is totally edible…unlike a similar smelling lotion I have stashed in the bathroom.
But these little headache pillows weren’t my idea. I got it from this cool chick. She rocks my socks off. And she calls me funny nicknames…which actually makes me giggle long enough to forget all about chocolate. And after that split second is over, I am back to searching crafts.
So now that you know what crafty crafts I have been up to…tell me, anyone out there with an awesome link to a craft you just can’t wait to share? Share it. Immediately. Before I start licking my lotioned hands. Because that is just plain weird.
