Brain Dump to Lighten the Load

Tomorrow, I get on a plane.

Tomorrow, I fly far far away, to a land where there is snow and cold and F-22's.  

Tomorrow I'm going to Utah (but "I'm Going to California in my Mind", please put me out of my misery and tell me what song that comes from!)  I've got 4+ hours of plane time to log.  I should be packing.  I should be getting the meals ready for Handsome to eat while I'm away.  I should be doing pretty much everything but updating my etsy shoppe, typing away on here, and drawing purse pictures.

SOOC (straight out of camera), no lie.
This place where I live, this little hidden gem?
It's completely beautiful any time of year.
I hope Utah is beautiful.

Why am I so taken with purses?  I have no idea.  I just can't stop sewing them.  I can't keep sewing the same ones over and over, either.  It's an adventure, I believe.  Exploration, discovery, creating and all that.

Remember when I said I wanted to be a baker?  And now I'm a candlestick maker doing this purse thing?  I still love baking.  I still might be a baker.  Just a baker with a really nice purse, maybe?  

Meh.  The future.  Who needs (to know about) it?  I've got no idea what's coming down this pipeline called life (terrible metaphor, sorry!).  

I do know that Jj Heller is pretty awesome.  Sometimes I need music that really gets me pumped and ready to fight or run or just... calls to action.  Jj doesn't do that.  She sings prettily, and makes me want to be her friend and eat scones and sip tea at her house.  

I've got a $5 amazon mp3 gift card as a small consolation prize for buying a way-too-expensive textbook.  Perhaps I'll download some of her songs to keep me company on the plane tomorrow.  Got any other suggestions for my plane trip, music related or not?

Thank you for stopping by here.  I'm sorry I'm so scattered and have so little of substance to offer you.  You're a peach for reading this entire thing.  You're a peach for just existing, as far as I'm concerned.  I'm also unsure why anyone would ever want to be an actual peach, but that is neither here nor there.

Randomly Unorganized,


  1. The song is "Carolina In My Mind", as in "I'm going to Carolina in my mind." P.S. You're already there. Maybe you should sing "I'm staying in Carolina in my mind."
    And the purse fascination? I blame Mary Poppins.
    Love you. Have a great trip.

  2. @Dallimomma,

    THANK YOU SO MUCH. Now I can play the song and get it out of my head!

    <3 Mariah
