Glad you are safe Sandi.....

thanks for the compliments. I am one of those lucky woman I always looked younger then my age. But my body will tell me and remind me... :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Now with this great weight loss it is a bit easier on my body and that was my goal.....makes a great difference. Maybe a bit
TMI, but I bought 4 Bikini's for my Water Aerobics class, since I have my hourglass figure back, at 70 I myself cannot believe it.  ^-^

Stay safe, be good to yourselves..... :-*

Good morning!

Got up WAY early this morning, because Eric is sick and I had to take care of all the animals before leaving the house an hour earlier than normal for my allergy shot before work.  Actually, I got up WAY early yesterday too, because I thought yesterday was Wednesday and I had my allergy shot yesterday morning!  Whoops.

Work today, and tonight, I (and hopefully Eric if he's feeling better) am doing a talk at a local historical farm about beekeeping and becoming a beekeeper.  It should be a blast, but if E can't come, it'll be my first solo talk. 

The question is whether I bring my wasps nest also, to show people the difference between a beehive and a wasps nest.  We get SO many calls to come get "bees" that turn out to be yellowjackets.  On the other hand, this isn't so much about bees in general, but about beekeeping.  I'll see.

So glad it's Friday!  It's been a hell of a week.

Our bee talk (Eric did end up coming with me) was phenomenal, and we inspired a lot of people!  So happy!

This weekend there isn't much planned.  The license plates for Firefly came in, so I'll get those tomorrow.  And while Eric goes to a Red Bulls game, I'll bring my wheel to a library for Maker's Day to spin.  And I'm making Bouchon Bakery lemon meringue tarts from lemons a friend in California shipped to us from his yard.

I actually need to get a ton of spinning done; we signed up for an Earth Day festival on April 22, and a weekly farmer's market from June to October.  Eric's been doing a lot of turning, and made me this absolutely gorgeous dragon fountain pen!  He's also made a music fountain pen (ebony) and a phoenix ballpoint pen (bloodwood).

Beautiful pens Larissa,  :)

I am treating myself to a matinee at our Alhambra Dinner Theater at noon to the musical "Show Boat". I will chose Salmon and all that wonderful food that comes with it and know already I need a to go box. The most well known song from that musical "Old man river".
I am so looking forward to this, a nice break in my tumultuous life right now.....you all have a good weekend

Well Ms Marty there is a lil singer in you..... :D...I too have sung titles from Showboat as our church every year puts on a Broadway Show.
Never mind, it was beautiful food was delish and I set at a table with 5 ladies from the country, cow raising ladies, who didn't mince words, it was so funny, our table conversations. They tell it like it is and were also - what we would consider- way to nosy.... :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
Well that's just how they are....and all of them made sure I knew that they were Trump Supporters....I wont go there on here....but it was very entertaining....
Have a good week you all....

OMG, I love Showboat!  I saw it on Broadway years ago, and the guy that sang Old Man River... I never wanted him to stop.  That VOICE.  I can hear it in my head even now.

Didn't get nearly everything done this weekend that I intended, but it was a good weekend regardless.

Tonight after work, I have to pop by the library for a book, go home and bake a cherry pie, and then when Eric gets home from his wood turners meeting, rebuild the bottom half of the guinea pig palace (we did the top half yesterday, which is part of why we didn't get everything done that we actually intended).  And spin yarn.

Good morning!  Work today, and then dinner with E tonight for our 8th anniversary.  I made cherry pie (his fave), and he's cooking us lamb chops (my fave).

Jumping in to the forum here, but have scanned through many of the older postings, so I get the feel many of you are online (at least) friends. My name is Mary, I own Crafts from 1900, and make handmade greeting cards, gift tags, and paper crafts.  Those fountain pens are beautiful, Larissa, and happy anniversary. 
What was I doing today? In and out of the car errands, the tiring kind....and made two new cards for the shop. Tomorrow is the start of a new job-orientation really-and I'm hoping work won't cramp my crafting time! LOL.
Just wanted to say hi, and hope I can simply make myself welcome here 8)
