It's the end of the day...

Don't you love that song by REM, it's the end of the world as we know it... and I hum after that. Well it's only the end of the day it's the end of the week. It's been one heck of a week. Today however was quite good. I've taken a class with Jane Wynn, I learned to do things I would have been afraid to do with fire. Somehow when everyone else is doing it it's o.k. I may just be ready to do some welding on that car in the garage. Wouldn't that shock the sh... out of my men. And I officially don't have to beg my husband to solder rings on my lightbulbs for my Santa's anymore. (One more thing I don't need him for.) Tomorrow is the second half and an opportunity to complete something I had wanted to do for some time. I hope it all works. It's kind of hard to explain, but we are doing bezels. The title for tomorrows class is pipe dreams, plumbers beware. I'll be checking garages for anvils. And purchasing a drill press. Today also gave me an opportunity to spend some time with my friend Leslie. We haven't been together for a few months now and I really missed her. It's going to be a better week ahead. All the trees are saying it's fall and the stores are definitely into Halloween. I'm looking forward to spending the rest of the evening in my pajamas, watching nonsense on T.V. I get the remote tonight. Have a good one.

I want to see photos of what you did in the workshop. I, too, am now ready to go out and do more soldering.

Yes it was lovely meeting you all. But I'll have to post my creations at a later date, as I'm waiting to go to Nancy's to learn how to loop, before I continue. My pieces will actually be book marks in a memory piece/s I'm doing for my siblings and our children. The roses I used were from my mother's garden. I'm continuing to dry roses and petals just because I'd like to keep that garden in my special place even though it has been a lot of work. I'm not sure yet what sentiments I will add to my book, it's becoming quite emotional. Thanks for your comments, I love them.
