My half of a trade with the wonderful PrincePrance!
I got a TON done this weekend. Art wise, household wise, friend-time wise, I even got a bit of exercise in by riding my scooter. 🛴🌈✨
I finally went to check out the Hobby Lobby that opened near us (rode the kick scooter there.) I feel so conflicted about that store. 🤨 I think the company itself is garbage, and especially being pan, I have personal beef with them. But the stores are a dream for me, nothing quite like them –not Michael’s nor JOANN– and they employ a LOT of local people. So many that would be jobless right now are employed there, including many fellow immigrants. So there is good and bad. 🤷♀️
Anyway the store was freaking AMAZING. 🤩 I spent less than $35 and got a bunch of snail things, a bunch of squirrel things (what are the odds!) a GIANT wind spinner made of brightly colored metal, some accessories for my bears, and a rainbow dinosaur umbrella!! I was losing my 💩. Haha!
Also got to go to Home Depot for a few little bins to organize my hug’s smaller accesories.
Later, I got some writing done, in company of Vanilla Bean and with a nice snack:
It was really nice to see our friends (on different days.) Even though right now we don’t see them as often, they mean the world to me. They are my family.
I am also quite excited because, due to some waits, I now have two wonderful bears I am expecting: Roulade, a mouse whom I’ll be naming Chizito (after an Argentinean snack similar to Cheetos) and Clinton, a wonderful bear whom I will be calling Mud Pie. I’ve already made necklaces for both of them!
I’m hoping for another productive week. Really happy because Christopher won’t be home late this week!
I love my Rosemary so deeply, so utterly and completely. She is the best cat I have ever had. She’s been sleeping with me lately, something that used to not be allowed, because she would wake us up by playing with the doors. Well, I immobilized the doors by using no less than FOUR doorstops on each. Happy us, happy Rosie. She cuddles with me all night.
I captured this photo of her today, when I found her for the first time in the little hidey-hole of the cat tree I got for the porch. Made me smile a whole lot!
