I've been MIA

Sorry about that. It's been so danged hot I haven't actually been doing much of anything that I can show you just yet.

Yes, I HAVE finally come up with my swap for the Shoe Box swap at Convention.

No, I'm not going to show it to you just yet...

But I may have a couple of other things I can show you...

I finally got my Cottage Wall DSP, and, just as I thought, it sparked my imagination again! WHEW! Was beginning to worry I'd totally lost my mojo!

Here's the first card I made with it. Contemplated using this one for the Shoe Box swap, but decided against it.

No, this one won't do, either.

Sorry! That's all the sneak peeks I'm going to give you tonight...

And I also forgot to show you the swaps from my Team Meeting earlier this week.

Can't show you Del's cause we ate them - she brought us tomatoes from her garden. They were yummy!

But here are Natalie's and Terri's:

A friend called me the other day and we decided we needed to get together for lunch, so we did that today. Great to see you, Robin!

And while we were eating, she said she'd been wanting to go to one of the casinos and her roommate doesn't really like to do that - would I be interested in going tonight? Well, I sat there contemplating the idea and it hit me there really wasn't any reason I COULDN'T go. So, I said yes, and we went.

Friday night's not the best time to go to the Indian casinos around here. Very busy and crowded. And this particular casino has an awesome buffet, so people will stand in line for hours just to eat there...

We didn't do the buffet - we gambled while the rest of the people stood in line to eat. Not too crowded when we got there around 6:30 PM - but as the night went on, it got very crowded - and noisy.

We left around 10 - it was starting to thin out a little... I only donated about $25 tonight - and had a great time while spending it!

I have casino software installed on my computer - and I do a whiz-bang job playing with PLAY money - I've got $65,000+ on that game... Too bad it's not real money, huh? LOL

My errant child tonight is Smudge. She's discovered SOMETHING at the back fence, and every time I've gone out to try and drag her into the house, she's moved further back behind the tree, where she KNOWS I can't reach her.

When Robin and I got back, both Velvet and Melie were in the house, but Smudge is just not interested in coming in. And I'm going to go to bed shortly, so she MAY spend the night outside. She's never done that before, and it makes me nervous to let her, but I need my beauty sleep!

Speaking of beauties, I got a great photo of Velvet yesterday...

She doesn't really like to get her picture taken, so she generally hides when she sees me taking the camera out.

And I caught Smudge on the top of the sun shade yesterday - she kept back from the edge, so it's not a great shot, but at least I have pictorial documentation that she's been up there!

Later, I caught her out by the fence - think my neighbor was working in his yard, cause she sat there for the longest time, looking quite interested - there wasn't much noise that I could hear, but I guess she could!

Well, that's it from me for tonight. I'm going to break my own "don't go to bed before 2 AM" rule and hit the hay!

Have an AWESOME weekend!
