After spending yesterday and today outside doing yard work, I have a glass of wine handy and am about to relax reading s/thing on my kindle. It is the May long weekend here and the weather has been marvelous, so far--sunny, 80 degrees. Tomorrow I have to schlepp stuff to the house in the city, rake the grass I cut on Wednesday, bag it to bring out for more mulch, and paint. Maybe spend some time in the much neglected flower beds (maybe do that Monday--a friend is coming for Girl's Night tomorrow night).

And they only paid thousands instead of millions for him. Can it get any better?

I'm still trying to get the cats off the ceiling after that race...I scared the heck out of them. I bet it's a couple of hours before they feel safe sitting next to me again!

He is an amazing horse!

Poor kitties. Good thing Teddy Bear left a short time ago. He would be with your cats.

My neighbors must think I am in some serioud pain also. But then I heard some yelling coming from open windows also.

I agree! I used to do all kinds of needlework, but at my age (65) the plastic canvas with a stand is pretty easy to work.

I often just take the frame off of the stand and prop the framed canvas on my desk or ottoman and find something good on TV.

For a small carry around project, kits are easy to find, cheap and portable. Make a tote bag to carry your next kit in.
