What we did:
On Friday, the whole family (Michael, Magoo and I) went to visit Mike's sister, Pam, in her new place. She lives in the country and it was a beautiful day to play squirt guns in the yard. Pam also lives close to a very cool playground. Unfortunately, there were a decent amount of bees there and Magoo has developed a new fear - although he was not stung.
Saturday, I got a call from the gallery in town and they sold my big koi painting (the one in the banner.) So that's great. I have to get started on more and I have to start clipping those Michael's and JoAnn's coupons so I can buy some new frames 40% off!
We also put up Magoo's tire swing! (Although it wasn't finalized until Sunday.) Yeah! It's very fun and Magoo loves it. I'd post pics of him swinging - but, you know, no camera. Hopefully soon. Sunday afternoon there were 7 neighborhood children in my back yard all playing on the tire swing and the hammock. Maybe a few too many - it's not a big yard. But it also made me come to the realization that I'd probably better not put a lot of effort into reseeding back there b/c the kids are just going to destroy it anyway.
I also made: a tote bag, 2 pairs of shorts and 1 very cute colored pencil case for a birthday party we are going to next week. (It kills me that I don't have a camera!!!) And a TON of great food!
