Our Dan has Graduated from High School! We’re very proud of him and he’s really had a lot going on the past few weeks – Graduation from Fire AcademyAND High School Graduation. Congratulations, Dan!!!
Since Dan joined the Fire Dept, I find myself once again part of the social scene of it. Last week was their Fire Dept Picnic and the three of us attended. It was a really hot day and the Fire Fighters did have water at their disposal, but I didn’t take advantage all the water available. Instead, I sat in the shade and talked with a few ladies about this and that and scrapbooking and card making. I’ve dabbled in both before, had some supplies, but they’ve gotten so much better. In fact……after talking to the ladies and hearing the high praise of this machine……and hearing all the things it can do, I proceeded to win one on Ebay (refusing to pay full price for it, of course) and I’m unpatiently awaiting it’s delivery(should be friday). In the meantime, since I’ve all these friends looking out for me, calling me when someone is having a sale, letting me know when coupons are out…..I’m probably very prepared to just get to work with that machine once it gets here.
You can still make some nice designs without any machines, of course. I had a lot of fun putting this card together for the teacher I work with – she’s a Beach enthusiast and I thought this came out ok. (crappy iphone photo, rainy and not a good day to get nice pics otherwise)
Don’t worry – I’m still knitting. Still plodding away on the Austin Hoodie………..while watching The Pacific with the family……….and drinking tea for this stupid scratchy throat I now have/losing my voice (Jeanne, I don’t think it had anything to do with all the woohooing at Graduation Friday night) I am not going to be sorry to see this school year end. I can honestly say I’ve been the sickest in my 12 years there and darn if I’m not getting something else – or having a really, really bad time with allergies. It’s really been pouring today, so if it is allergies, well the rain should help put that pollen down. In the meantime, Tea with Honey, some knitting and TV on this rainy Sunday before the last two days of school seem to be the ticket!
