Dianaro...That is SO funny about the rocks! I actually haven't made my frog and turtle yet because I haven't been brave enough to "steal" the rocks from the pool area, and I haven't found any lying around any place else that will work. I'm still rock hunting though!
Bubblegum....You are BUSY!!!!
Karen...I'm right there with you and Frugal on the diet and exercise struggle. My DD is doing wonderful by exercising every single day with different videos, but me, I just sit here and do my projects while she works out and hope it will somehow make my body change into a lean, mean machine rather than the rubenesque (sp?) figure that it is. I look in the mirror and I see one of those old statues looking back at me. You know the ones where the lady is very voluptuous. That's me! Curvy!
Speaking of projects, I've been working away on some more of them. I painted a frame this morning for an embroidery that will hang in my office area. It says "Calm, Peace, Tranquillity". It used to hang in my bedroom two homes ago, but now I think it needs to be near my work space.
I also sewed up a little black/white gingham curtain to go around the front of my desk. I had originally wanted to hang it with a tension rod, but for some reason the tension rod was just not staying where I wanted it. So....not one to give up too easily, I got out my trusty glue gun and glued that puppy right to the edge of the desk front. I can hide things under there to my heart's content now. I won't, but I could.
I went through a big box of pictures this afternoon and choose a few summer shots of my kiddos from over the years. I used fabric covered clothespins to hang them on a wired frame that I made. It now sits on my mantle. It is SO easy to just change out the pictures as I want to this way. And, it's cute!
Tomorrow is my birthday, and for the first time in a very long time, I actually have a plan. I will be teaching my 3rd day of Dino Camp in the morning (LOVE IT!). I will read and craft in the afternoon. Then, I will pick DD up from her summer job of teaching music at camp and we will head to DS' new house with Hunter Kitty. (He's getting his new home tomorrow. Right now, he is sound asleep on the couch totally oblivious that his world will be changing tomorrow.) DS is making dinner for us tomorrow and his girlfriend is making me a chocolate cake. I can't wait!!!
