My feet are still mad at me for all the walking I made them do at Disney but I'm trying to move around more and spend less time sitting here at the 'puter. The endless uncluttering of the garage moves slowly and seeing all the fabric I own is guilting me into clearing off my worktable so I can work on some quilts. I have a pile to finish and want to work on Deb's top so I can have it finished for her Grandson, Riley's second birthday..

Monday is go to Plant City to Laure's house and help with trinkets for her daughter's wedding. Should be fun. Her mom, Sally, will be there and she is so much fun. Judi will bring a soldering iron and some expertise at stained glass. I think the project is glass microscope slides with picture in between, copper foil along the edge and then solder. Not sure if we are adding jump rings so it can be hung or not.

Just got a phone call from Dianne. On Monday her mom heads up to Pennsylvania to stay a few days with David's mom and then she's off to Munich to visit her late husband's relatives and then the long trek back to Australia. So tomorrow we will go up to Lake Ivanhoe's antique district and browse the shops and do lunch. I guess that'll get me off my butt and away from this demon computer.

Another excuse not to write listings for eBay.. But the piles keep getting higher & higher...

Ahhhhhh... great morning.. had a pedicure and then a massage. I was sore and in pain from an 11 hour day of Disney's Animal Kingdom and a night at Magic Kingdom. I walked my feet into agony and the rest of me wasn't doing much better but it was such fun. My friend's Mum is visiting from Australia and we spent the day together enjoying the animals & exhibits. Met up with her daughter, my friend, at Magic Kingdom to watch the "Wishes" Fireworks display. Friend's hubby works there setting them up. As exhausting as a day at one of the parks can be, I still never turn down a chance to go.

Last week we had "Tea" at the Grand Floridian Resort. Very English style tearoom with all the extras. Very nice and civilized.

Here's a sassy update: She loves to crawl under things and hides. Here she is just coming out from under the quilt on the ottoman. She is so funny.

Ahhh, comments are finally getting through! So if anyone is interested in a Central Florida Mixed Media Art Group please post your comments & contact information. As soon as enough people show an interest, I'll try to organize a get together.

See my earlier post describing the group.

It seems there's been a problem with comments on my page. I only show one from one of my earlier posts and some have told me they've left comments.. where did they go?
I have gone in and reset some of my settings and tweeked a few things but don't know if it's fixed. If anyone reads this, please leave a comment so I can see if it's working.
If it's not, I'm not sure what to do to fix it. If you do, leave comment.. Hahahaaaaaaaaaa..
