Back from running around and the bike ride...it started raining as soon as we were two miles from home. Best rain dance ever, just get on the bike.

Found a "decent" knife set for the boss, she is not a cook, but needed some knives. I checked Goodwill and there was nothing there I would have even thought of buying. So, I went to BB&B and got her a 15 pc, set.

Make sure she gives you a penny or in this case fifteen otherwise the gift of a knife may sever your relationship!

The knives will be paid for...she gave me the money to buy knives for her. She's just getting more than she thought she would.

I'm sitting here being flabbergasted. I was just informed that I have been nominated for a "Best Costume Design" award for a costume I designed for an area theatre production. I was asked last year to help them out with a particularly unusual costume and apparently I delivered what they wanted.

The awards function is May 5th at the theatre. It's their equivalent of the Academy Awards. I don't think I have a prayer of winning but it is nice to be nominated.

I'd forgotten all about making the costume.

Taking a break for a few minutes.
I've been cleaning at setting up the patio & fire pit for tonight. Hubby has to work today. Had our Anniversary dinner the other night. So a drink by the pit and a quiet evening is the plan. I'm going to pay my kids to get out of the house for a while tonight. It's been gorgeous out all day. Hopefully the wind will keep away or at least down enough to be cool!
Ok, breaks over need to get my lanterns dusted & put back up.

Congratulations Katie!
That must have been some costume you made. Did you get pictures of it, before and in use of it?
I'd love to see that.

Found out recently that our big art museum also has a huge art park as well. I've lived in this neighborhood for quite a while and didn't know that this park existed. We did the 2 mile hike, there is another one that is 2.5 miles, and a short one, that is one mile.

Beautiful day with great breeze.

Get card stock. Works perfectly for the job at hand. It is like index cards.
