I finally have the look I wanted for the pieces and I can start the beading this week. This will allow me to work on my BFAC project while I'm at Bead & Button, so I'm happy. I don't have a roomate this year - I decided to allow myself the luxury of not sharing since this will probably be the final time I attend this show. I'll miss it in a lot of ways, but I have other things that I would rather spend the time and the money on, and I need to focus on that. I would like to visit some of my on-line friends next year so I'll save my money for some shorter trips to different places instead.
I was starving by 3pm yesterday and DH and I went to the local sports bar - Grumpy's - for dinner. They had $4 build your own Bloody Mary's and $2 beers. We were happy. The food was really good too. When we got home, DH went outside to look at the damage that our patio has been experiencing. We have a drainage problem and we're losing a lot of soil and coming close to flooding the den with heavy rains. Some serious work needs to be done. On the way back into the house, I heard some serious noise coming from the fireplace (DH, with his lousy hearing heard nothing, of course). The D____ed squirrels have built a nest in there and they now have babies and they are making a lot of noise and I'm very uncomfortable with having the darned four-legged critters living that close to me. But I don't think I have an option right now because I won't evict young ones.
And yesterday was an afternoon/evening for tornado warnings. We didn't get hit as hard as Joplin, Missouri, which was hit very, very hard. But we did get some touchdowns in northern Minneapolis and had a lot of property damage and one death. The season is starting a bit early and with some serious clout. Not good!
