My Wonderful Weekend

Monday, Apr 16

I had a FABULOUS weekend.  Saturday was beautiful all day long.  Bernice and I made our pilgrimage to the barn and I listened to a book on my iPod while she explored every nook and corner.  That done, armed with GPS on my cell phone, I headed out for the Kootenai County Fairgrounds, in lovely Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, to attend the North Idaho Rubber Stamp and Paper Arts show.  I found some lovely new images to use in my art journal and on artist trading cards, and chatted with the actual artists who’d designed them.  Such talent!  The show was small but packed with great ideas and art supplies, and you KNOW I had a great time there.  🙂
Back home, I took Bernice back to the barn–it was her 12th birthday, after all–and visited with our weekend wrangler, Chris, while the Yorkie searched for mice.  Several appeared, but she didn’t see them, fortunately.  🙂  She was busy looking elsewhere, and I can sort of identify with that.  Maybe you can, too.
Once in the house again, I puttered with my new playthings and listened to an episode of Daily Audio Bible, then sat down to read those galleys I told you about.  I covered half the manuscript, which was my goal for the day, and felt very pleased with myself AND the book, “Big Sky Mountain”.  The changes had to be in TODAY, without fail.
Sunday brought two more trips to the barn with the Yorkster, and more puttering, and I finished the other half of the galleys.  This morning, I sent the changes in, and now I’m ready to go back to “An Outlaw’s Christmas”. 
Busy, busy.  That’s just the way I like it!
More tomorrow.
