Tomorrow I head to an install of one of our displays less than an hour away. It should be interesting because it will be an indoor installation. I've never seen one before. Plus, I'll be eating lunch at a restaurant I've never eaten at before.

However, this is what I inadvertantly bought.
And it tastes horrible. Oh well. There are only six packets. It won't last long. And seriously, take a look at the packaging. Not fair. Do they really think that those of us suffering from colds will even notice the difference?
I did buy some of this Yogi Tea. Haven't tried it yet, but that will be a treat for later tonight after the munchkin goes to bed. Me, tea, a book. I also want to try the Honey Lemon Throat Comfort and several of the mind teas. I love tea. It's so comforting. I really need to start drinking it more.

I wish I were kidding. I currently have a table on the bed in the spare bedroom, a baker's rack in the hallway, and there will soon be a washer, dryer, and stove on the front porch. The dining room table will reside in the living room, along with the chairs, and the fridge will indeed be in the living room until the kitchen floor is done. Heck, we might like it so much that we'll decide to leave it there.
I've been working on that double crocheted blue afghan. I'm hoping to finish the first skein (a 1 lb. skein. Those of you that crochet know that's over twice the size of a large skein.) today so that I can feel some sense of accomplishment. I've also been reading David Copperfield and have promised myself that I'll finish up to page 350 before beginning book 3 of the Edward and Bella story. It's been hard to resist.
Work is as busy as ever. Right now I'm working hard just to keep my head above water. But, having lots of projects to work on keeps me busy and keeps my mind off of other things that have been worrying me. So, I'm not complaining. Besides, job security is never a bad thing. And I do love my job.

There's some interesting stuff in there. A book about a 300+ pound man who hopes to become the dominican J.R.R. Tolkein, one about a group of people on an RV pilgrimage, post-apocolyptic journeys, and just some other stuff that I'm not so sure of yet. Should be an interesting 6 months. I just hope my first book arrives soon!

Remember, this is the year of finishing David Copperfield. Well, just as I was beginning this project, Tiffany introduced me to Edward and Bella. I'm hooked.
I'm halfway through the second of four books. Argh.
Must. Read. Each. One.
Who am I kidding. I have to own them too. :(
Started out by heading to the local farmer's market with Mom. Bought the ever-important sweet corn from the wonderful local sweet corn growers. Unfortunately, they were out of Yukon Gold potatoes. I bought a bag from them last week and boiled and mashed them...much to the hubby's delight. I believe his words were...well, there were no words. He was too busy eating to say much of anything.
Did find some delicious taters at the grocery store. Cooked and mashed again. Received multiple accolades again. This time the words were, "You're really becoming a pro."
Along the way mom and I hit several garage sales. At the last one, we found the most wonderful thing. We found a complete set of what I call "Sound Box" books. They've been renamed, but they're still what I remember. These are the books that I learned to read on. I guess I went a little crazy. I bought the whole set. And I was thrilled about it. Big grin. Big, BIG grin. I'll post pictures when I get a chance.
Today was a trip to my nephew's baptism. The munchkin was wonderful. There were all kinds of kids there for her to play with. She was well-behaved and happy. I couldn't ask for more.
Stopped at Sonic on the way home. Had a very yummy strawberry limeade. All in all, I loved this weekend. But now, can I have a weekend to recover from my weekend? :)

No, this is not a new fashion statement. I now have four of these teeny gold studs in each ear until they fall out. (The one you can't see is in the top of my ear.) This is the latest form of acupuncture we're trying. I've been trying to do some research on it, but haven't found much. Maybe I'm just using the wrong search terms.
Insertion was painful, and they're still very tender right now. I'm not sure how I feel about it yet, but I'll let you know how the weekend goes. In the meantime, wish me luck. Who knows when and where one might choose to fall out!
Here's an article I found that mentions it. Pretty interesting actually!

Tonight, we went to dinner with mom and dad. Munchkin decided my sweet potato fries were much better than her regular fries. I agree. So she ate most of mine. It was a good day.
Hubby's in bed because he's still not feeling well. I'll be hitting the hay soon myself. It's going to be a busy day tomorrow.

At the grocery store tonight, the woman behind us in line put a whole watermelon on the counter. Right away the munchkin piped up with, "BROCCOLI!"
Well, they're both green...
