What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday #611


Hello, All!
I am so happy to be able to post this Wednesday.  Life has thrown a few curves but isn't that what makes it fun?  For those of you who are not familiar with WOYWW, please check out this "never-ending blog hop at Stamping Ground.
I was very sorry to hear that a long-time WOYWW member, Shaz Silverwolf,  succumbed to cancer last weekend.  My condolences to those who knew her well and shared so many WOYWW memories with her over the past ten years. May G-d comfort each and every one of you.
Each week, I try to plan my crafting projects.  I gather all the components that I plan to use and I complete my Project Planner sheet.  I want to use this background sheet to create a fairy-themed card.
I am still working on using "never touched" stamps, dies, etc., in my stash.  I have had these Just Right® stamps for twelve or thirteen years.  They are not fancy or trending but I think I will be inspired in so many ways once I put ink to stamp and stamp to paper.
Of course, I have to use my stickers to decorate my planning pages.  I don't put much on these project planners.  Normally, by the time I have the project all planned out, I have written all over the page.  Perhaps, by next Wednesday, this project will be completed.

Given the foolishness that continues here in America, particularly in my home state of Georgia, regarding our election laws, I often find myself struggling to avoid becoming a flat-out cynic!  So I offer up one of my favorite poems.
Chemical Lament
(Sorry, I don't remember the name of the author)

All term he struggled through the course,
he was a nervous wreck.
He'd acid burns upon his nose,
and boils upon his neck.

His hair was turning blue and green,
from litmus tests, you see.
His eyes were shot 
with lurid streaks of blo2d.

But when at last exam time came,
He knew he was prepared.
The test for him would be a cinch,
No reason to be scared.

He knew the allotrophic forms
of alcohol and gas.
And he could take the atom count
in any drinking glass.

He knew how many molecules
were present in the air,
and who discovered Strontium
and how and when, and where.

But when the tests were handed out,
he died, from shock or woe,
The fatal query put to him was
What is H20?

Thanks for stopping by!
