Busy Weekend

Oh, it’s definitely the Holiday season. In addition to the obvious (Christmas songs playing on the radio and all the decorations in the mall) it’s the rush-rush-rush of our schedule that tells me the big day is not too far away.

Friday night was the middle-school play. Son No. 1 had the lead role in Who Poisoned His Meatball? It was a hoot! The audience was laughing the entire time (oh, and it WAS a comedy by the way). The kids did a fantastic job. Crafty Mom and I were especially proud of the young man who had the role of Luigi.

Take a bow!

Take a bow! You did a fantastic job kiddo!

Saturday Son No. 1 spent the entire day at a rehearsal for Honor’s Band. He was selected as a top musician from his school to join 17 other area schools for a concert on Sunday afternoon. It was phenomenal. Those kids played their hearts out and played music that was at a skill level that …. I don’t know. My wife and I were in high school band back in the late 70’s and we never played music like that. They did a great job and received a standing ovation.

Yes. Thank goodness it’s Saturday!

Crafty Mom and I are getting ready to head out to Kohl’s and Michael’s then later we’ll be taking a van-load of ‘stuff’ to Goodwill. It’s such a good feeling to de-clutter a space. Last night we spent a good amount of time in the cedar closet and sorted through old clothes and other miscellaneous items. Geez, it’s amazing how much ‘stuff’ we’ve accumulated.

Hope you have a great day.

Do something crafty. With the Holidays just around the corner, there’s no better time to get the creative juices flowing and to c-r-e-a-t-e.

I love it when a plan comes together.

Slacks.  Done.

It seems almost zen-like when you are so “into” a project. Like the one above. There are so many steps to the process. And when you’re done (and … assuming you got the results you expected) there’s a sense of elation, accomplishment, a ‘whew that went well’ moment.

This pair of slacks turned out nice too:


Do you experience that with your projects?
