Reading update

I joined the rest of the word in reading the Millennium Series.  It was a slow start for me, but I'm so hooked right now!

I saw Inception the other night, which led me to think about Leonardo DiCaprio in Revolutionary Road which led me to Richard Yates (the author of that book) whom I looked up on Amazon, which led me to the book named Richard Y ates by Tao Lin.  That book isn't out yet, but I put this one at hold at the library and I think I'll love him!


On Saturday, I treated Beth to a nice meal at Taco Bell and she treated me to a manicure & pedicure.  It was soooo relaxing! I picked a dark grey for my fingers, but as soon as she started to paint my nails, it looked clear......but I just let her finish and went on my way!

Beth, you are silly.

Look out, I'm back!

Two separate and very awesome days in City Park.
On the left, Beth & I walking to Jazz in the Park and on the left, Nicole & I lounging out before a massive thunderstorm.

Last month I went home for my high school reunion and the big Old Fashioned Saturday celebration and to pick up my lovely dog, of course.

We took bets & confirmed that Oliver had lost 4lbs from his 2 months of squirrel/cat chasing! 

This is the slow tractor (un) race down main street.

Roey & Steve!


Me & Katherine and the kitten, Steve (or as Katherine would say, Stebe)

Pleats, Darts & Gathers

I have so many pictures to blog! I'm so behind.  In my defense, my laptop has slowly died & I just ordered a new one on Saturday.  I'm so anxious to get it!
On Monday night, Loren & I took a Pleats, Darts & Gathers sewing class at the Fancy Tiger.  In the process of teaching myself to sew, I've picked up many bad habits and shortcuts, so even though I've used all these techniques before, it's nice to know the correct way.  Usually the instructor mentions the method I use proceeded by, "Don't ever do this..."  Lesson learned!  I think we produced some quality work.  Our samples look like little doll aprons.
