Music, Watercolors, and Scrapbooking

Well, I’ve gotten used to using my husband’s old laptop. I’m sort of accustomed to Google Chrome. Not the best with WordPress blogs, but I can deal. And I’ve had a very busy week. I always have one very busy week each month, and this week was the one. With a home school suport group meeting at my house and home school programming in Ames and West Des Moines, added to Boy Scouts and regular life, my week has been a whirlwind. The ice storm didn’t really slow me down, contrary to popular thinking.

Thankfully, the HSAP in WDM has a J-term that is a manageable 3 weeks long. This was our last week of running to book making class. It was cool, but I’m glad it’s over. I have a hard time thinking that once-in-a-lifetime programs can be passed up. We saw Musica Antiqua, and I keep thinking that some day, one of them will leave, as in pass away. They’ve been together for 30 years. My kids HAVE to see them. Such a special special group to have very close to home. And Japanese Tea? We did pass it up, but the presenter will hopefully be here another year or two. Luckily, I have a partner who can cover when I’m gone. So my week was full.

I still have a scrapbook crop (fun fun!) to prep for as soon as I’m done blogging.

I had 50-50 success with the watercolors this week. I still need major practice with cool colors — violets, greens, blues. Browns and oranges, not a problem.

My yo-yo necklace is a keeper. I’ve worn it twice this week and like it bunches.
