On Friday, my sister and I went to the marts - JoAnn's, Michael's, and Big Lots. I found two really nice 11" x 14" frames at Big Lots for $5 for the pair. They will be perfect for my ATC-sized bird drawings on dark paper. We had lunch at Panera's my treat. We both had black bean soup and 1/2 sandwich. It was delicious. We then retired back to home base where we played cribbage, Yahtzee and Scrabble for hours on end. Her husband made angel hair pasta with a wonderful pasta sauce for dinner.
On Saturday we drove into St. Joe and stopped at the Krasl Art Center on our way to downtown. I registered for a Drawing with Water Solubles workshop with Kristy Kutch on May 21 and May 22. I will stay with my sister while I am there. Then we stopped in an art cooperative and met a wonderful fiber artist, Marilyn Mussman. From there we stopped in an antique store and then went to Bigby Coffee for a cup of joe. And then we went to the Beachside Deli for lunch, her treat. I had the most delicious gyro I've ever had. I can't wait to take the hubster there. We then went back home for game-o-rama.
We watched a couple of Tiger games (preseason) on tv and played games all day on Sunday. While we were out shopping on Saturday, her husband made the most wonderful beef barley soup with turnips, rutabagas and parsnips. Yummy!
While we were out and about, I found more books to repurpose. I am quite excited by these finds.
I hope to make a couple of new books tomorrow and get the new ones posted on my online shopping site. The internet connection here has been so undependable, I am completely frustrated; and it irks me so that I don't have any other option than HughesNet except for dialup. Ack!!
I've missed you and so appreciate the wonderful comments and suggestions on the post with the cigar box. I hope to have something for you tomorrow.
