WOYWW 126

It was a dark and lonely night, as she sat alone in a cold room... a vigil of her own makings. The importance of what lay ahead  bore heavy on her shoulders, the responsibilty was hers alone. What drove this woman to such extremes? What was it that made her sit here, with no company save for the moon peeking from behind a looming cloud... what was so important that she gave herself this task? So long - hour after hour - she sits. Waiting. Until... The sky in the East held a faint glimmer... the hue that gave rise to a new day, a new dawn. The lone woman turned her head toward the growing light, and smiled... finally her wait was over. She could finally, and at last...

...

... publish her "What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday?" photo and post.
WoopWoop!
Oh the fun I have thinking up new ways to introduce the WOYWW challenge *lol*  Julia at the Stamping Ground (who hosts this wonderful weekly event) must think me quite insane. And she could be right *lol* But if you read her blog, you'll see that she probably understands this sort of madness quite well (in a good way... really!).
So, what is on my workdesk this Wednesday? A mess. A big, jumbled, missing-mojo, can't-create-for-toffee, sit-for-hours-staring-into-nothing sort of mess.
The makings of a paper-bag album that I know already I shan't be using on the "Autumn Swirls" book-base - including kraft cardstock, corrugated cardboard, 'Vintage Photo' distress ink... and my rhubarb and custard boiled sweeties (helps with concentration. Really!). Oh, and a few Halls Mentholyptus to clear my blocked nose. Yes, on top of all my grumbles, I have also managed to catch a rotten cold *lol*
This is a photograph I'll have to hide from Darling Hubby... he's a keen-eyed man, and will notice  the computer turned on, with my purse laying next to it. He'll put two and two together, and come up with something a LOT lower than what I really spent online shopping...Oops! Time to hide the bank statements *lol*
My notepad lies open - though falling off of the table - with not a single word written down... my mojo really has disappeared. Of course, this could be a good thing, which gives me a few hours to tidy up and vaccuum the craftroom, make the bed, clean the toilet, do the dishes, and sort the darks from the lights in the washing pile. Only I haven't done it... any of it. I spent yesterday in bed with a box of tissues and Jeremy Kyle on the television. The early hours of Wednesday found me adding a bit here and there to the book-base... just a hanging charm of some keys and a clock face:
And a little gold-coloured bee to the drawer:
That's it... nothing else has been created or made - or even thought of!

So... what's on YOUR workdesk this Wednesday? Time to share folks... I want to have a nosey around, get some inspiration, and find out on whose desk my mojo is vacationing to :)

Oh, before I go off and have a snooze, thought I'd share a photograph of a really cute kitty. This one has turned up twice in my house in the past week - but she's such a pretty-kitty!
In fact she's such an adorable feline, that I think I'll keep her *lol*
Of course, it's my baby-gurl dressed up for a Halloween party at a friends house - the second time she had to dress up as a cat for a party in the past week. Funnily enough, her boyfriend went to the Haloween fancy dress party too... they made quite an odd couple that night...
... and Connor was so NOT impressed with having his photograph taken whilst dressed as Scooby-Doo. It didn't help that Hubby kept asking him if he wanted a Scooby Snack. Still... they do look cute together :)

That's it for me now... I have to wake up Beth so she can go off to college, and make sure Hubby's new alarm clock wakes him up too - and then I'm off to have a nap until Jeremy Kyle is on the telly at 9.25am. Oh, a morning of slovenly bliss!

Y'all have a wonderful and amazing WOYWW now!

Well it doesn't look like your mojo has taken a leave of absence... you have a book on the go on your desk!! Stuffed noses really make everything harder to do so I think a morning in bed with the television sounds pretty good!!
Your kitty pics are cute too... and her Scooby Doo boyfriend will never live that pic down... LOL

Karen said...

Oh what a pretty kitty you have and I am sure that Mr Mojo is just lurking round the corner and waiting to pounce when you least expect it.

Helen said...

Great pics - hope your cold goes soon, although I would draw the line at Jeremy Kyle....

Bridget Larsen said...

It was a lonely vigil today I was roused at 6:15 by a crying son who had smacked his head off the wall and been roused from deep sleep - I thought yes I am up good and early and there it was no WOYWW post (arrghhhh) I stalked the page so I could be early to add kept checking - then before mentioned headsmacker dragged me upstairs and of course that is when the post finally emerged (sigh). Still vigil over hope the mojo up and at itself soon.......

Julia Dunnit said...

There's absolutely nothing worse than the common cold is there, makes you feel absolutely rotten! Your desk looks like you're in mid flow though and not mojoless at all! Cute Halloween photos too!

Hugs

Hope the cold disappears quickly, and with its disappearance, the reappearance of the absent Mojo!! Colds are the pits, aren't they. Get well soon! Happy WOYWW, Shoshi #67

I adore your gold bee! The project seems to be going along well! Want some scoobie snacks seems like something that my DH would say over and over again! Love your little kitty! Thanks for sharing your fab intro and WOYWW! -Amanda

Angie said...

Your introduction made me roar ...I so often wait for the hands of the clock to edge into WOYWW ...but reciently I have been a bad blogger and posted before midnight.
If I had created what you have I'd feel happy and know my mojo was in residence. xx

Hope the cold improves.

Jeremy Kyle, oh dear, you must be poorly and no wonder your mojo has gone AWOL - still there is the postman to look forward to :) Your kitty is pretty and isn't Scooby Doo tall - that's a photo he will never live down! Hope your cold gets better soon and your week improves. Elizabeth x #59

Cute pics of the kitty and Scoobie Do! Sorry to hear Mr. Mojo is missing at your place. Seems to be an issue at a lot of places right now. Love the projects you shared. Hope you have a great week. Thanks for sharing. Vickie #68

Angelfish said...

Such a pretty kitty:) My littlest one was not nearly as co-operative when posing in her Halloween costume. Your introduction really made me smile, although I am now a day behind!

Morti said...

ROFLMAO at your opening - but how true! Well, at least, for those of you who do it manually! Some of us autopost, you know! When it works, ah-hem.

I'm chortling over your DD's boyfriend and your hubby offering him Scooby Snacks too...

Love the work on your desk too - that bee is so cute!
