rainy day - yeah!

Just thought I would throw up some pics here. One of my bluebird from ceramics - I think he turned out so cute. He's going to grandma as a belated mother's day present. Now I am going to make myself a chickadee. Nothing else is really new. We met with our caterer yesterday to finalize the menu - everything looks so yummy. She gave us a great recipe for lemonade also - we made it last night and it is so good. Fresh lemons, sugar, ginger ale, and water - mmmmm. Here's one more pic of some furniture I bought at an estate sale last week-end. I had never been to an estate sale, it was a lot of fun. I got this danish furniture, the guy said that one chair was worth about 400 bucks (don't know if I really believe him or not . . .). But I got two of these chairs, two little endtables, and a lamp for 125 dollars. I thought it was a great deal, and the chairs are really comfy and 50's style groovy. I tried looking things up on-line, but can't really find a chair like this. If anyone out there knows anything about it, let me know! And it's finally raining here! Yeah!

long and winding road

Well, I decided that I should probably update, even though there's not a lot to say. I have decided to give up on the job search for the summer - too much going on in the next few months anyways. We are finally getting married - I guess that's the big news. So, I have been busy using my craftiness to make stuff for that. I am even making my own dress (with a little help!) - nothing fancy, not even white. Just a simple sundress. There will probably be people there dressed better than me! We are trying to keep it very simple, and so far, I think we are doing a pretty good job. Tomorrow we meet with our caterer - that will probably be our largest expense. She makes everything from scratch, uses organic and local ingredients whenever possible, and she also makes cakes, and is a minister to boot. What more could you ask for? My neighbor and I have begun a serious workout program - it's been a lot of fun. My legs are sore after hiking up excavated hillsides yesterday in suburbia. We saw a window on a house that was really cool, then saw the same window (and basically the same house) over and over again. How pointless - to buy a house to make it your own, and it looks just like others down the road. We did get to see a handful of deer however, they were very suspicious of us. . .wonder why?
