A birthday, a trip, and a WIP

Happy Birthday Mom!!!

scan0001 I wont say how old she is cause that just isnt good manners.  And I have no clue what her age was in the photo above.  I like this one cause I can see both me and my sister looking out.  We are getting together today with family and friends to celebrate.  Shall be fun!

The trip - Just back from 6 days in Cincinnati, Oh.  Good lord I was never happier to get back home!  Hot, Hot, Hot and very Humid (yes caps are needed),  Temps in the 90’s (we do get those here in Portland) but the heat index would then push temps up to 105-110!  Add in smog alerts and the whole lot makes it a bit difficult to breathe.  I was stupid and didnt really use my inhaler til later in the week.

I was there with some gals from work to meet people and see what we could do to make life easier.  That part was good.  Nice to place names with faces.

A bad part was to see the temps back home were going to be similar to what we were leaving (minus the heat index joining in the fun).  Other bad part was dealing with the Hotel, who ran out of wash cloths (yup, ran out) and left garbage in the hallways (eww)

The WIP – I took 4 projects with me to work on.  I was proud of myself that I was able to limit it to only 4 and only really worked on one!  Ink Circles CDC.  Going there and the one or two times I had time to work on it this week was spent on creating the circles.  Very easy, repetitive, non-brain cramping work.  Was very needed.  I finished all the circles on page 1 and started in on filling centers.  Still loving the colors.

And I this morning I read that BBD Anniversary House #7 is on the way to the printers!

Included in this release is the first bonus.  I need to get cracking on the 4 I dont have done.

  2. Happy Birthday to your mom! It IS nice that we don't usually experience too many humid days in Oregon.
