president’s day…

well, it was a good president’s day, i guess. the weather here was great! i spent a bunch of money at walmart…what’s the deal with walmart and spending money????? i go in and try to knock everything out at the same time, and i always forget some important item and i always spend too much money. ack. today was no exception. i get so tired and overwhelmed that i end up buying random items like styrofoam balls and forget important things like dish soap. consumerism gets the best of me when i get into that place!!!

i did manage to snap a couple of pics this weekend, though. i have a picture of ron and arek on a nature walk. that’s their father/son time where ron teaches arek survival skills and they bond. i would do it, but arek and i wouldn’t make it to nature. we would be too busy getting distracted by a big trash pile on the side of the road. anyway, i have those pics, a pic of miss thang with a barbie tierra on her head and a couple of project pictures.

first….my project pics….i always find these cheap, wooden candle holders at the goodwill bargain center. they are a dime a dozen. i also seem to find lots of random glass candle holders with no home. well, i found a fond way to marry the two and get a great little mosiac too!!! i am too lazy to grout stuff. i just leave it all rustic and pointy…..

i had arek help me break up the china pieces. he thought that was a lot of fun! i put the china in an old towel and whacked away with a big hammer!!!!
