I have so many pictures to post -- there just isn't enough time. I'm teaching an in-person class today, and everything is prepped and ready to load into the car! Yeah!
I still have pictures from the weekend to post, and I don't think I'll get them all done today. Let's see what happens.
Maryke, Carol, and I did some swapping; here is part of what we exchanged. I loaned Maryke some templates, and I got two books in return. The first one, I've put with my Mixed Media projects for the year, and I need to find a way to incorporate some of those techniques into my projects. I'm behind in the assignments -- what else is new, and I mostly do quilt-related things, which will take me out of my box.

I put the second book on my shelf as I won't have time to deal with both at the moment.

And I also was the recipient of some GORGEOUS paper. I will be sharing it with someone, and when they see this picture, they'll know who they are. I see these are also in this person's favorite color!! How neat is that?
While there's no picture of us together, Maryke did send a picture of her view. It's stunning, and I can see a lot of time "wasted" sitting on the deck, just chilling out. Murphy would be in her glory, running up and down the hill to the lake!

I got one other thing from Carol, but I haven't even opened it yet. I'll try to get that done tomorrow.
And in case you were wondering, the girls were ecstatic to see me when I got home on Sunday afternoon. I don't think they really cared two hoots about me -- it was the WALK that they wanted. Even Lexi, who is pretty aloof, was jumping around, and when we did get out, she was having fun on that extension leash!! Yep -- she made a point of being in FRONT of Murphy, which wasn't good for Muphy.
I'd have been whizzing down the street at a pretty good clip if I had roller blades on!

|The car was emptied|
|Over or under?|
|A new health check-up machine|
|Excellent blood pressure|
|BMI is acceptable|
While it's all good advice, it missed the one thing that causes my BMI to be higher. East LESS chocolate, as the chocolate just goes to my waistline the moment I eat it.
So unless I give up the sweets, this will NOT change because I already do everything they suggested!
I didn't take my temperature, but it's pretty neat. A robot nurse, I suppose! Anyway -- that was an interesting stop!
We had our Monday sewing, and it was a very productive day, but I don't have time to share those photos with you today.
As I was prepping for my class today, I dug out some of my GO dies. YES -- I have the Apple Core die, so there is no need to borrow that from someone. I also have the small tumbler die, so there is no need to borrow that one either. I felt something weird on the back of one of the die packages. What the heck is that? OH MY -- it's a weeding tool. Who knew that was there -- obviously, I've never used this die before! I'll take that off and put it with my other weeding tools in the Scan and Cut.
