Good weekend - bad day

It was a good but fast weekend! On Friday night we went to see the musical Movin Out. It was the music of Billy Joel and the choreography of Twyla Tharp. It was neat, very different, no dialog.

Then on Saturday I did projects (posts soon) AND took a 3 hour nap with the cats, which was super nice to do.

Then on Sunday was linner with the ladies - Ann, Jackie and Germaine. Hours can pass when we are together gabbing! It was great to see them.

Today was back to work and there is always a lot to do. It looks like there are some immanent changes about to take place, and that is adding some extra stress on my shoulders. So I left on time to get home and clean and crafts to take my mind off of it! I also watched one episode of House Hunters where the older woman wants to move a hippie commune and eat fresh veg with her neighbors in the community house. I made some joke about how the herpes come free with the mortgage. Chuck laughed as we ate chicken pot pie with extra corn for dinner.

Friday April 17

Today is a beautiful day out - it was a great night last night too! I am excited about warm weather and have waiting for it for so long, but now when will I have time for my paper crafts? I bought a new white gel pen last night, but it wasn't the brand I really wanted and so I was no surprised when I tested it at home and am not thrilled with the results. I am now on the hunt for the perfect white pen!

We had to take Martha to the vet this morning for what we thought were her anal glads. Turns out she has a growth near her anus that we will now need to watch and monitor. (She also had her anal glads squeezed, so it wasn't a worthless trip.) The vet is funny and awesome and loves our dogs, and also acknowledges that we love our dogs, so it is nice to see him again. When we got home there was a loose dog running around and it caused some tension on the block between "us" who do a good job of keeping the dogs in the yard or on a leash, and "those" who don't. I know my dogs have gotten loose before accidentally, but there is one family that seems to let their dog run around freely and it can be a hazard for the rest of us.

Chuck is working on the yard today. He is planting hops for his beer hobby. Oy!

Some recent projects!

I made these recently. Let me know what you think of them!



Hope everyone did their taxes in time to turn them in today. It is also my friend's 50th birthday - so not such a bad day after all!
