Then we had to carry them over to the car. Again, bigger than I expected and heavy! But super cool. From a local chapel, I guess. Well, they didn't fit into the car. B had to call his uncle to come meet us with a truck. So I wandered back to the sale. Just as they were auctioned off a very cool modern couch. I had eyed it before but didn't seriously consider it because we had come in a car. Well. Now I knew there was a truck, so I went ahead and bid on it. SOLD.
It's going to go in my game room. The stained glass windows, I am thinking of painting the wood casements. Black? Cream? Might keep it natural for the set that's going to go in the living room. The other two will go in the game room. I will consider it money well spent ONCE they are up on the walls. I'm hoping they make as big an impact as I am hoping they will..... I will post new pictures when that happens.

I've gotten back into a running groove. Ran "the bridge" today, which was the first time in many many months. (I've been running a loop in my neighborhood the past few weeks). I definitely have a love/hate relationship with running.
I bought a t-shirt memory quilt kit the other day. Not sure what possessed me, as whatever sewing skills I have, haven't been used since I was a girl scout probably. But I do have a bunch of old t-shirts I refuse to throw or give away, but don't wear anymore and I suddenly totally saw how they would make an awesome memory quilt. Perhaps I shall photo document my attempts to create it...

The other major happening this week was taking Logan to the vet. He had been scratching and scratching at this spot under his ear and Sunday night I touched the spot and it was bleeding. Logan was also very bitey and didn't want anyone to touch it. So, Monday a.m. I called the vet and got him in that afternoon. This was the first time in the 6 years we've had him that we had to muzzle him. He was just too bitey, but our vet knows that he is never like that. So she got a good look inside his ear and at the spot under his ear. There was no sign of an ear infection, but she said what was on his skin was called a hot spot. Could be from allergies, but it's just a topical irritation. So they took him in the back to shave down his fur and clean up the area. I asked if he needed a cone and she said yes, so he doesn't cut it open again. So, we once again have a conehead in our house. It has been a few years since he had one on, so it took some getting used to. So he is still bashing around and figuring out how to get up and down stairs. I did take it off the other day, but he started scratching it again, so we had to put it back on. Well, maybe this week we can take it off. Either way, he is a very sad pooch...
Not sure why his one eye is closed, probably just the angle or something:

Then, in one swift moment, I changed my plans and went bowling instead. And I had a blast! Went with bf, Poison Apple and her husband and Kimical Warfare. I haven't been bowling in at least three years but I've still got it. Well, I scored 124, 131, then got to a 94 in the fourth frame of our third game before our family fun pack of 2 hours of bowling expired. Really got me sentimental at how much bowling I did as a high-schooler, either at the Rec Lanes or the CAC in Sheryl. (only bowled at City Lane aka Shitty Lanes once or twice). Always a shock to see how expensive it is to bowl now. $5.25 a game?? and $4 for show rental??? good grief. I also think it's funny how few people seem to know how to score a game. I had to explain how a strike is scored (10 pins plus score of next 2 rolls). I was on a jr. league that came in last place and I still have the "last place bowler" pin somewhere. After our bowling time was up, we went to the lounge and drank pitchers, played darts and goofed off until late. And us ladies set a date for our Scrabble Tournament! Whoo hoo!
Too bad tomorrow I have to go back for another week of crazy stress at work. Sigh....I hope I survive.
So, here's to another season of my husband yelling at the players who can't hear him, to fantasy football stuff I don't understand or care about, and to finding something creative to do for three hours every Sunday while my husband plays out his affair with the television. After nothing but loud football for the afternoon, I prefer something more along these lines...

Anyways I spent at least twenty minutes staring at these little guys, trying to get an accurate count. I think there were at least six of them. Hard to tell, they kept moving around and my point of view kept changing. I haven't checked on them since that day. Truth be told, I felt kind of bad for disturbing them.

I am on to reading my first novel by Neil Gaiman titled Anansi Boys. I was told to read American Gods first, but I have this one out from the library, so this is going to be first. My husband and I read several of his Sandman comics and loved them, we also watched MirrorMask, so I'm excited to read his novels.
