Last night my little art quilt group met at my house to paint some fabrics. I will admit, I was ill prepared. Having come off 2 of the last 3 weeks being out of town and of course that constant.....work....I didn't get to a store to buy more fabric paints. BUT I did manage to create quite a few pieces that I really love. I used a great gold paint to stamp 2" circles with a piece of foam. My daughter, Melissa, and her future brother-in-law, Cameron, came to try their hand at this too. Melissa actually made a pretty cool piece that I will have to use in some way! (no pics yet)
I am watching "So You Think You Can Dance" in HD on my son's TV. Nice. I need one of these new-fangled flat screens. So, if I were to vote....Lauren is great. I have loved Kent all along, he is an endearing little guy, but Lauren is consistently good.
I have learned:
- Well, apparently I am healthy enough to drive our pick up trucks at work now...which all now have DOT #'s on them. I had to have my first DOT (Dept. of Transportation) physical this morning.
- Brooklyn's Finest. Not as good as I had hoped. High murder count. Too much unclearly going on. To me....last night.
- I am reaching that "age". Wakes & funerals. A good old co-worker died yesterday. 58. Heart. I haven't worked with him for 15 years but kept in that used-to-share-the-same-load kind of touch.
- Urraim. My son, Micheal, had this tattooed on his arm a while ago. He carefully researched Gaelic (tribute to my Leitrim, Ireland born father, his namesake) words that reflected how he felt about his family.
