sewn leaves and conversations with my brain



conversation with myself

me: right today I have to hoover the house, take books back to the library, drink coffee, sew lavender sachets, dust, clean up the paint mess, sort laundry, do that combined challenge, do a bit of writing.....

my brain: You don't want to do that.. lets make leaves!

me: No I have to sew those lavender sachets, clean the house...

my brain: you don't have any lavender.

me: I can still sew the sachets.

my brain: Nah lets play with that branch in the corner that I made you drag home.

me: I have work to do.

my brain: Lets make leaves or I will play "I kissed a girl" all day on your internal radio..off key with only half the words!

me: you wouldn't

my brain: "I kissed a girl and I liked it...mumble mumble.. cherry chap stick"

me: *facepalm* .... fine.. lets make leaves

my brain: yay!
So I made two leave from some scraps of pale green fabric, and some random red buttons, and sewed them onto a piece of the branch I brought home with me on Saturday. I don't know what I'm going to do with it or if I will sew more leaves, but the idea popped into my head and wouldn't leave me alone until I made leaves.

hilarious, except for the fact that my brain and your brain seem to have gone to the same sabotage training camp. great to see other peoples internal dialogue is exactly the same as mine...with the same bloody tune too.

the leaves are gorgeous, so maybe the brain was right after all...

Thanks, I have that song rattling round my brain now too......great leaves though, even if they weren't in the plan!

I like the way your brain thinks. But I blame it completely if I spend the day humming that stupid song. And the leaves rock.

BTW, did you happen to get an email from me?

Ooooh I love these leaves and must try it! I love the brain conversations too! Unfortunately my brain says similar things like "procrastinate on work for fun instead." and I get those half lyrics stuck in my head too. Great minds think alike!
