a little chatty tonight

work was slow so I left early. came home and did emails and BBs. The library called and 4 audiobooks that I wanted came in.
The Lucky One - Nicholas Sparks
Invisible Prey - John Sandford
Phantom Prey - John Sandford
My Sisters Keeper - Jodi Picoult

I watched:
general Hospital
while stitching on the bookmark for an exchange.

I also did some more of the Wii Fit today and did a run with it. Thought I was gonna die and wanted to give up but Dylan and his girlfriend were in the room encouraging me.

I was visiting a few blogs and came across this Zentangle . Now I don't know about you but I doodled this stuff all the time as a teenager. In boring classes, while on the phone with friends, etc. Now they think they have to teach us how to do it? My major in school was art and I actually have my portfolio still. Now I want to invest in some nice pens and sketch pad and do this again.

I also received an award from Carolyn. Thank you so much. I do not give out awards anymore since all of my blogging friends keep getting them and I post and comment on your blogs whenever I can.

Well my glass of wine is almost empty so I guess it is time for bed. Everyone thank you for reading my blogs and for the comments, I love them all and appreciate all the friendships that I have formed.

Oh my gosh, you mean those hundreds of doodles I did in class actually have a name? and are worth $$$, who would have thought! Didn't we all do those? Well, we had at least boring teacher and I know there was a LOT of scribbling going on (LOL). DD just gave me a John Sandford book, I don't know which one, but if it's being recommended by the librarian I might pick it up soon and give it a try. Don't let the kids drive you into the ground with the Wii. I can see it now, they leave the room and you fall flat on your face (ROTFLOL).

I am seriously going to have to pull out our WiiFit and give this thing a try! Scribbling - who knew how meaningful it could be!
