I know I don't have a clue

But what about????

Steampunk with color

Use all of those steampunk bottles

CA Steampunk or just stuff?

Just because it's aviator is it Steampunk?

California Steampunk

OK I must admit I am becoming slightly obsessed with the whole steampunk thing. However the whole look is a little dark for me but I can't help but be drawn to all of the giblets and books and laces and dresses and tinkering! I like the intellectual darkness but the whole movement lacks the color I crave. I have decided to start "California Steampunk" a lesser known more cheerful and colorful subculture of the movement. It involves houseplants and windows. Anybody else on board?

this sucks

It sucks to be a mailman on a cold and rainy day.

It sucks to be a mailman on a cold and rainy day.

It sucks to me trapped inside with kids that should be at softball and Lacrosse practice.

It sucks to be my six year old vomiting her guts out on a cold and rainy day.

It sucks to be my dogs yowling and howling to go out and terrorized squirells in the mud.

It sucks to be my 12 year old having to clean her room and having every attempt at procrastination foiled.

It sucks to be a mailman on a cold and rainy day.

Free at Last!

Refuge or prison?

What a difference a day (or 2 makes!)

Thank God! I have broken out of the room below and onto the porch ahead! My bedroom that has been such a refuge over the past couple of weeks suddenly seemed to shrink as my constitution improved. The good news is I never really used my bedroom as a place to hang out- as a haven. There was always a kid or dog or husband that needed something. Now I know what a joy it is to close the doors and hide! I will definitly be doing more of it!
