Some Stuff

Yesterday and today Joe was out of town on business, which left me without a car for a bit.

I took a 6 mile walk and this beauty was fanning her wings on the sidewalk.
I went to the Farmer's Market in town and got some strawberries.
So for dinner I had strawberries and cheese and a sourdough English muffin with honey.
The cheese was from a different farmer's market last saturday.
The muffin and honey are both local as well, but I didn't get them from the market.

Tonight we are going to a Mallard's game for Joe's company picnic.

Usually I would be gung-ho about free beer, but I have been exercising and eating healthy for a bit now and I don't want a few beers to mess up my hard work! I'm sure it will just be Budweiser or Miller products, anyway, so I wont be missing much. BUT on the off chance that they are serving Capital, I will be all over it.

Capital is my new favorite brand when it comes to beer.
The neat thing is that Capital Brewery is less than a mile away from where we live.
You can go there and sit in their beer garden and listen to live music, and then you carry in your own food, which I think is pretty cool in this day in age.

Anyway, keeping this short because I have a few things to do before we head out...if Joe ever gets home from his business trip. He's in Oshkosh and I don't think he has left yet, meaning he'll be over an hour late! I predicted that...he never leaves work when he is supposed to.

Hope everyone is well.

So I don't have a whole lot to write about today but I want to share a few cute things I've found on Etsy recently.

I'm very picky with my rings, but when I see one that I like, it must mean that it's really great...I love this lion one.

I already have this print by Cole Gerst, so I would really love to get this other one I mentioned as well.

I've been swooning over the wisteria pendant for so so long now.

The slippers are perfect. I almost bought them and then realized that I was waiting for 2 payments to clear from some buyers in my paypal account, so I figured I'd wait till they cleared. And now they are gone. I hope she makes more.

And since I love all things nature and all things block print, the moonlight pods print really called out to me.

Speaking of block prints, my printmaking class starts tomorrow night! I'm really excited.


Onto the next...

So I was contacted by Natural Home Magazine a little while back about the shelf that we painted and they wanted to know if they could use it in their publication.

Of course I agreed. But I must say that it was pretty difficult for me to get a copy- I went everywhere in town to find this magazine and nobody sells it. I actually thought they were going to send me a copy since that seems to be the customary thing to do, according to a journalist I know who used to write columns for a popular magazine.

I finally found a copy on Ebay, though, so all is well.

Close up here.

Well that's all. I have to finish cleaning the apartment now- I just wanted to slip out onto the balcony for a bit to enjoy this beautiful day we are having. It's been awhile since we've had weather this nice!

Okay so this is my new hair that's actually not new's grown a little bit since I got it cut.

I wear it a little different every day.

Today I didn't do anything to it since I didn't have to go anywhere.

But this is what it looks like...

Okay that's all. I'm off to bed now!

No new post for the OPC blog today, but I did post over at the Yellow Canoe blog.

I still have to show you my new haircut, though! I chopped all my hair off about 2 weeks ago. Something I've been wanting to do since 8th GRADE. Oh well, that only took 9 years. Short hair is so much better, I am never having long hair again!
