I got lots of new toys today. ACMoore had their canvases on sale, so I got a couple of big ones. I've been really, really wanting some markers but they're so expensive. So, I bought a pretty cheap set with lots of colors to practice with until I'm sure I want to spend the money on the Microns. Let's see...a couple of weeks ago I used my weekly coupon (always at least 40% off) to buy an eyelet setter. Today I finally bought the eyelets..again with the coupon. I picked up some cuties for the Santa and Me Chunky Book Swap, too. I'm getting excited about starting that but I have got to remember to call Mom and ask her to send some pictures of me. I know she has one of me in a red outfit with a big white furry hat, sitting on Santa's lap. He had just given me a lollipop and I was completely engrossed in getting it open. LOL The lollipop was red, too. I'd love to use that one.
My book finally came today. I read a bit while I waited for Nick at school. On the way to the mailbox, I saw a piece of paper in the grass and there was a cardboard bookmark with a frog on it that said "jump into reading." Then I opened the mailbox and there was my book. :) Cool, huh?
I have choir practice tonight. I'm looking forward to it. Afterwards, a few of us usually get together and go out to a local pub and that's a nice relaxing thing. Last week we sat outside and nursed our pints. It was very nice catching up after taking the summer off from choir and it was just a perfect night. One of my choir friends has had a long hiatus...lots of tragic things happened within her family in a short period of time. She and I have planned to go for a nice hike together...take a sandwich and put our feet in a pond at a sweet place called "Happy Hollow." When the boys were small, we used to go there to get (buy) our Christmas tree every year. You know..you pay to cut it..nothing smells better. So pretty there. I'm looking forward to that and I hope we both actually take the time to do it. She's a chef and just got a new job. She's really happy about it.
Alrighty, I reckon I've kept y'all long enough. Talk to ya later.
