I have Monkey Mind~ Do You?

Last night was wonderful. The ladies had a blast creating earrings & pendants with pmc and then they switched gears and had more fun stamping their hearts out making cards. Its a double header of a class....a jewelry stamping combo. Delightful. Next week we put the earrings together and the make that Oh, so cool package! Can't wait for that.

Afterward, Meg and I went to Bruesters for ice cream.....at 10:00 at night!!!!! She turned me on to Birthday Cake ice cream....Oh, my.....it was yummy! Meghan has proven to be a bad influence on me (in a good way). I'm addicted to stamping now and have to weave it into my jewelry....I've got ways....wait and see :) Add to that now, Birthday Cake ice cream!!

Fast forward to now: I'm out on my swing chair taking a nice break and reading Eat, Pray, Love when I came across the funniest statement~ yet true statement. I'm at the Pray chapter and she (Elizabeth Gilbert) is telling how the Buddhists say we are all burdened with "Monkey Mind" ~"thoughts that swing from limb to limb, stopping only to scratch themselves, spit and howl." Oh my, YES, I have monkey mind!!

Just something funny to share. Laughter is good medicine.

I had Monkey Mind just reading this post! Swinging from picturing the jewelry/card class to stamping pmc to eating Birthday Cake Ice Cream! I guess the only thing to do next would be to spit, howl and scratch!!!
