Dianaro....You can use whatever paint you happen to have on hand. I just used some cheap craft paint.
Thank you to everyone for the wonderful birthday wishes! I love all my GONer friends!
I had a fabulous birthday. In the morning, I shared slices of virtual birthday cake with my Dinosaur campers (all 150 of them). In the late afternoon, we went to DS' house. His girlfriend had everything decorated up Hawaiian style. We had leis, flowers for our hair, sunglasses, even grass skirts. Coconuts and palm trees on the table. Apparently, my parents were in on it too because when they showed up DF was wearing a Hawaiian shirt and DM was wearing a mumu. DS made patty melts on the BBQ and potatoe= wedges. YUMMY! We had the BEST chocolate cake ever too. DS girlfriend, T, had a mysterious rash appear on her entire body Tuesday while she was at work, and they sent her home. Her skin was on fire and she even passed out once. We finally convinced her to go to the ER last night. SO...DD and I stopped by the store to get some milk and then headed to the ER and sat in the waiting room with them for a little while. We were still in our luau attire so we got some pretty strange looks and a lot of laughs. One guy in the parking lot of the ER even did the hula for us. It was great fun! Turns out T has hives, or at least that's what she was diagnosed with. They gave her some epinephrine and some other stuff last night because she was swelling up, and then some cortisone for the next 5 days. Poor girl was quite the trooper for my birthday though!
This is something that is weird to admit, but it was very nice to have a birthday without any fighting (aka drama) yesterday. Every year that Rob and I were together, he would always get in a horrible mood on my birthday and end up ruining the day. I kind of feel like I should feel guilty that he wasn't able to do that this year, but I don't really feel guilty at all. Is that strange?
We took Hunter Kitty to his new home yesterday too (since we were going there any way). He investigated the entire house, and then hid under a chair. He wanted outside this morning so they let him out, but haven't seen him since. He's been known to wander and explore quite extensively so I'm pretty sure he'll show up again soon (or venture the 10 miles back to our house - I hope not, but I know that one of my DSis' cats did that.)
I've finished painting the frame for my embroidery (Calm, Peace, Tranquillity) and hung it in my office area. I LOVE how it came out. I used an old-fashioned floral print scrapbook paper to embelish the frame, and it just says "me".
I've taken in one of the skirts I got on my last thrift store haul. (I'm planning on wearing it tomorrow.) One more skirt and two shirts to go before I'm finished with that whole project.
Oh, and good news, DS has loads of rocks at his house so I was able to find some for my turtle and frog. HURRAY!
And, I've put coat #3 of the sealer on DD's music chair. I'm thinking maybe 5 coats should do it. I want to make darn sure that thing is well protected.
