Monday, Monday...

I did get a couple more boxes from the garage moved to the house. Notice I did not say they were unpacked, but at least they were moved into the house. Although the garage looks like it is filled to the gills when you open the garage door, I realized that there are a lot, but not an overwhelming amount after I opened the door that leads to the garage from inside the house. It is definitely something that I will be working on when we get back from Arkansas...

I have an applique class Thursday and I am really looking forward to it. Friday my mom comes down and Eric and I leave for Arkansas that evening. Since the applique and my knitting are more portable, I will be taking projects from both. It'll be a good excuse to pull out the needles again. I am seriously considering the Irish hiking scarf. That has cables so it will at least keep my attention. I am always late to knit the cool things. Usually 6 months after the buzz has subsided, I look into it...

On the way to work this morning, I discovered we have a Dunn Bros. Coffee shop http://www.dunnbros.com/aboutus.asp in old Town http://www.360wichita.com/Shopping/areas/OldTownDowntownWichita...I love Dunn Bros! They have them in Lawrence, Kansas. The barista said they opened 4 months ago---that must be one of the best kept secrets! It is right on my way to work...I like the atmosphere of the place. I have been trying to behave and make my coffee in the morning, so I did splurge on a really good travel mug from Dunn Bros. Ok-I admit, I am a label whore...I love logos....especially coffee shop logos. I am going to take my knitting downtown one evening and sit and knit there. It would be awesome....They have a fireplace--I think it is an electric one, but it looked pretty neat. If it turns out to be electric when I check it out again, I am going to get one for our bedroom.

I did dig my watercolors and watercolor paper out of the garage this evening---I am going to work on little paintings until I paint myself out of the fear of committing to a large sheet of white paper....I want to do artists trading cards. I am constantly amazed at what other artists are putting out. I have to learn to silence the art critic in my head. Here is a good website that talks about artist's trading cards: http://www.cedarseed.com/air/atc.html

Hi, Rhonda, when I click on the list for our ring, I usually start with #1 and visit around making comments but this time I decided to go to the last one--gosh, what a big group! And there you were! Nice to meet 'ya! We don't have Dunn Bros. here in the upstate of SC, only Starbucks. But my sweet hubby brings me coffee in bed every morning so I'm good!
