Taking a walk along the river is a sanity saver for me, and sometimes, I get a nice photograph as well:

Road Trip!

Last Saturday we headed out to Grace for the "Good Ole' Days" tractor show. We've been doing this since the very first year it was held, it's become a fun family tradition.

Since Glenn couldn't make it this year =(, Bannanarama helped me with the facepainting (and did a wonderful job, I might add.) Here she is with her cousin Miss Pickle, who got a butterfly painted on her arm.

We stopped at the Flying J on the way home for dinner, and had some yummy chicken fried steak. Here's us girls:


I've been revamping my art/craft space, and went looking for a new chair today. I found this one at a local thrift store. It was boring and brown - but I made it into the Purple Chair of Awesomeness instead. (Have I mentioned that I may love spray paint just a little too much?)

I also went to a local discount store looking for some ice cube trays, since our fridge's ice cube maker is on the fritz and I can not survive the summer without a big ole glass of ice in my hot little hands! Well, while I was there I found a reasonable priced convection oven! Woohoo! They are ideal for curing polymer clay, since the fan means that the air is circulated throughout the oven and it stays a nice steady, even temperature without hot spots. (Those can lead to scorched and burned clay)
