I've been away, but, now I am back. I wish I had tales of adventure and excitement, but, no...life has been going along normal as ever.
I've been enjoying summer. The garden is growing and we will have lots of tomatoes once it warms up enough to turn them red. I'm still making jewelry. This weekend is the Bead Stampede in Couer d'Alene. They hold it twice a year. The one held in Spokane is in October.
Work is busy. I thought I could update my blog at work, but, everytime I tried something would come up and off in the direction I would fly.
**** So again today I thought I would have time at work to finish this post, but...too busy. Plus I only work a 1/2 a day.
Before the doctor appointments M took me to a new restaurant Raw. Hawaiian cusine. I thought it would be nicer inside, but, the server was wonderful and the food was fab. I chose the 3 item lunch platter. The 3 items I chose were teriyaki hibachi charred short ribs, lemon chicken and tempura shrimp served with ginger slaw and white sticky rice. All for 8.99.
Its finally the weekend. Time to enjoy. We went for Thai food yesterday at lunch. It was cool and rainy so we did not get to sit outside as planned. But the restaurant was gorgeous, filled with exotic statuary and a buddah waterwall I just fell in love with. We did have a booth by the windows that overlooked the river. It was just 4 of us and we had alot of fun as always.
Today is dog grooming day and a few errands. So most of the day can be spent working on jewelry and house chores. Finshed the book, Lovely Bones, so I now start a new book Nine Lives by Dan Baum.
Blame the lack of posts on watching episodes of True Blood, making jewelry every waking minute of the day or just because it is almost summer. Or maybe because my life is so simply normal boring that there isn't too much exciting things to blog about.
I could tell you there are 4 tomatoes on our plants, but, no jalapenos, yet. Work is going great. I will not be attending the staff picnic on Thursday, due to the BBQ'd catered food is loaded with sugar. But Thursday evening we are going to the television studio to be part of an audience of a program about healthcare. Ted, our vice president, will be part of the panel. We all picked out our shirts for the August Lake Coeur d'Alene cruise. My shirt will be a light pink. Friday is our department monthly outing. This month we have chosen Bangkok Thai. They have outdoor seating on the river.
I have removed the music radio from my blog. I have discovered Pandora internet radio and that is what I listen to at work now. I would love to add a background wallpaper to my blog, but, looks like I would need to load everything again if I do that.
I'm so glad it is Friday, as always do, and cannot wait to scoot out of work at 4:00.
Working on my business this weekend. I must make the display and product for the dog charm necklaces to drop off at The Yuppy Puppy. Lots to do for the new website like pictures and designing the brochure. Plus we are painting and moving the office and using that room for my new studio.
Hope everyone enjoys there weekend. I would love to know what you are up to.
It was rainy and cold yesterday and I dressed for summer. Figures. Looks like a much nicer day today.
Linda and Maureen were on a vacation day yesterday. Made the office quiet. I had enough work to keep me busy.
The past few nights we have been watching the first season of True Blood. It is so good and we are so hooked. Tonight is episode 4. Lots of good stuff on tv lately. I have started recording the new season of Food Network Star.
I haven't posted in a few days. Our garden is growing and is healthy and most of the plants have flowers and buds on them. The new lawn guy starts today. I went to Hollywood Video and rented the first season of True Blood. I am now ready for season 2 to start on HBO. Burn Notice starts up again next week. I've been making earrings like crazy and selling quite a bit. I need to take the time and start making bracelettes and necklaces.
My life has slipped into a comforting routine. Work has been a little slow and we all hope it picks up. But all in all life is good for the moment. So I should relax and enjoy it.
I didn't know exactly how to put in words how I feel about the assasination murder of Dr. Tiller. For almost 40 years we have been fighting the good fight to keep abortion legal and safe for all women. And yesterday we are again reminded that there are domestic terrorists that put our freedoms at risk. Christian hippocrites whose definition are: 1 : a person who puts on a false appearance of virtue or religion 2 : a person who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings
are the terrorists we must fear. This murderer is just the tip of the iceberg. The ones who icite murder and hatred such as the hate shows of FOX TV should be prosecuted right along with the bombers and murderers.
I am so sad that this is still continuing. We need to give to NARAL/Planned Parenthood and volunteer to fight these terrorists everytime they come to our towns. Run them out of town and show them for what they are. Christian Hippocrites!
