Pond Life Part Two


Now that is a better teaser!  It was much more interesting.  I at least got a good giggle out of it.  I can just imagine the Doctor showing up in the middle of the night and alluding to some future catastrophe.  No sleep after that, no sir!

Feeling Crafty

For a blog with creative in the name I have done very little blogging about anything of the crafty nature lately and I feel a little bad about that.  That's not to say I haven't been up to my eyeballs in the crafting department.  I just haven't finished anything lately as I am as unfocused as chipmunk who just downed a pot of espresso. 

Luckily Halloween and Christmas are both just around the bend and that gives me somewhere to focus my creative crazy.  And I have put my foot down on starting any new projects before my current projects are finished so there should be a whole bunch of stuff coming up here in the next little while. (YAY!)

In the meantime my house is a disaster of craft supplies, I have jewelry making kits and half finished projects every where.  How my children resist the urge to start unravelling balls of yarn is beyond me.  (especially those multicolored ones) 

The only thing left to decide is a craft for the kids to make for people for Christmas I am torn between yarn bowls:


And chalk boxes:

Terry Fox Walk 2012

This year due to health issues I opted out of walking in The Weekend to End Women's Cancers, I honestly felt that it wasn't in my best interest to take on something so daunting when I was in the process of seeking answers to the health problems that were plaguing me.  I still wanted to do something though, just on a smaller scale.

I don't know very many people who can say that cancer hasn't touched their lives in some way, a friend, a loved one, a co-worker, a family member.  But it has damn well waltzed through mine and I have watched people fight and survive (and I thank every god that ever existed for that) and I have watched so many people fight and lose.

So, when my friend Shane of Fame Freelance Services asked me to join his team for the Terry Fox Walk I jumped at the chance.  A) because he is awesome and it is always more fun to do things with a team and B) it meant I would be doing something and I felt good about that.

The Wanted


When I first heard that song that plays on the radio all the time, "Glad You Came" I thought it was catchy so I downloaded their album on my phone because I pay for a monthly music subscription and what better way to use it that attempting to broaden my musical horizons?

Unfortunately due to my tendencies to download everything and anything that catches my ear I have way too much on there to ever really get a chance to catch what I am listening to.   Mind you sometimes that is a good thing because some "music" is just crap and I am way too lazy it song by song and clean out the stuff I don't like. 

Anyhow, the other day I just happened to have my phone in my hand when the following song came on (I was texting a friend) so when I started singing along to it because I like it I took the time to look at what and who it was.  And then I played it again. 



While I am usually not a huge fan of boy bands I kind of like The Wanted.  Or at least I like this song.  I can relate to it.  It reminds me of a person in my life, how I feel about them.  I love music like that, after all that is what music is supposed to do.  Make you feel, bring to life emotions or memories.

Here are the lyrics in case you are interested:

"Lightning"

You're in control
Pressin' pause on my heartbeat
Someone stole all the air
So I can't speak now
I know the chase is on
I feel as though
My time has come

How many times do I fly
Through your head space
Now it's speeding away
From the safe place

Yeah, your skin
The touch, the kiss
The rush too much
And here it comes

When your lips touch mine
It's the kiss of life
I know
I know that it's a little bit frightening
We might as well be playing
With lightning

We touch like,
Like it's our first time
Oh oh
I know that it's a little bit frightening
We might as well be playing
With lightning now

Oh oh
Oh oh

Just you and me and the
Coats in the back room
Learning things they don't
Teach in the classroom

Now, you're here
I feel the fear
But everything
Is oh so clear

I've been addicted to you
Since the first hit
Out of control like a surge of electric

Yeah, your skin
The touch, the kiss
The rush, too much
And here it comes

When your lips touch mine
It's the kiss of life
I know
I know that it's a little bit frightening
We might as well be playing
With lightning

We touch like,
Like it's our first time
Oh oh
I know that it's a little bit frightening
We might as well be playing
With lightning now

Oh oh
Oh oh
Oh oh
Oh oh

Your skin, the touch
The kiss, too much
Your skin, the touch
The kiss, the rush
Your skin, the touch
The kiss, too much
The rush, the rush
The rush, the rush

When your lips touch mine
It's the kiss of life
I know
I know that it's a little bit frightening
We might as well be playing
With lightning

We touch like,
Like it's our first time
Oh oh
I know that it's a little bit frightening
We might as well be playing
With lightning now

Oh oh
Oh oh

New Doctor Who Series 7 Trailer: Warning This Way Be Spoilers

If you are a Doctor Who fan then you know that the new Series 7 Trailer launched this morning.  Now, anything I have to say about this can only be considered a spoiler if you (like my son, who wants to be surprised) have not (will not) watched said trailer.  With that being said I recommend that you not read any further or do so at your own risk. 


So, I have not been highly anticipating Series 7, even though 90% of my favorite Doctor Who episodes have been Moffat episodes since he took over the helm I just haven't felt it.  It took all over Series 5 for me to warm up to Eleven.  (like until the Christmas Special and then I had to watch it all over again with a better attitude) 

Still, I watched this trailer this morning right away (well as soon as I dropped the kids off as Ace did not want to be involved) and let me tell you it did what any good trailer does.  I AM NOW DYING FOR  SERIES 7 TO START!

Why you ask?  First of all dinosaurs on a spaceship, um awesome.  Then, is that a Triceratops?  Yes, yes it is!  Who killed all the Daleks?  Who do you think?  I love when Eleven gets all bad ass like, it makes me almost love him.  (he has his moments)

Seriously, they were riding a flipping Triceratops!  I am actually excited to see this, not buying new shoes excited but still pretty damn excited.  I am thinking I might have to have to hold a little season premiere party or something.  (no comments on that one, you know who you are)  I found an awesome Dalek cake tutorial I want to try out and what better excuse?
