Catching Up

It has been forever since I posted on my blog. I really need to get back at it! There has been a number of things keeping me busy. First my sweet little furbaby has been ill. Max has had a fever of unknown origin for over two weeks. We have been to the vet a number of times, he is on antibiotics and aspirin and he seems to finally be turning the corner and getting better. I am keeping my fingers crossed...hoping this time will be the time he finally breaks the fever and gets back to be his playful self. I hate seeing him so sad and lethargic. This morning his temp was down and he ate his normal breakfast. Things might just be looking up!!

This is my Max!!

The second thing that has occupied lots of my time is a show ~ Nunsense! My church put on the show over Valentine's Day weekend. I played Sister Robert Anne.
You just gotta love the sneakers with the boa!! She was tons of fun to play! Here is the chorus line of the Little Sisters of Hoboken. I am in the middle.

I had a blast and I got to share the stage with some talented gals!! The audiences were great. They laughed and cheered and made us feel great. I think it was about the most fun I ever had on stage. I am sad it is over but I am already on to my next project.

I am producing a show at Buck Creek Playhouse. It is Dancing at Lughnasa. It is set in Ireland in the 1930's. Meryl Streep played in the movie version. We have a crazy talented cast and the show just gets better with every rehearsal. I spent most of yesterday painting the set. Today I feel like a truck ran over me!! It is kind of nice being behind the scenes this time. It is incredible watching all the pieces of the show come together. I will post pics when I get them.

With all that said, I actually managed to spend time in my craft room!! I made a make up bag and some key fobs that will soon be in my shop. I used to share the room with my husband's drum set which left little room to work in. I am happy to say the drum set has been sold and the room is all mine. I am looking to paint and rework where I have my furniture placed. That is for another day. Right now I want to catch up on the blogs I have missed.

Random Thoughts

Today I am filled with random thoughts. I am not sure where this post will go so I hope I don't lose anyone in the process.

First thing is Facebook. I love it! It has allowed me to connect with so many friends that I have lost touch with over the years. Here is one example of what I have found. This is a picture of my high school's cast of Godspell in 1978...that was 31 years ago. It certainly doesn't seem like that long ago.
I am the second from the left. That show was so much fun. I am thankful that I got this sent to me by another cast member. Memories I will cherish!
Facebook is becoming the way to keep in touch. I know some of my online bloggy friends have pages. I do too so please ADD ME to your friends! If you are savvy about adding your store info page I would really appreciate some help. I could use a tool to help me promote my shop.
I hate being sick. I am at the end of the nastiest cold I have ever had. I literally slept for two days straight ~ one reason why I haven't blogged in a week! I have more energy but I am sound like a man. I need to kick this once and for all since the show is a week away!!!

I love hot tea on a cold day. Just warms me right up! I typically drink green tea but today I am enjoying some Lemon Lift!

I really have to list some major blessings...God is so good!!
  • Facebook - I love the reconnections with friends
  • Theater - the memories are priceless and the friendships are endless
  • Technology - our world gets smaller everyday
  • Friends - their amazing love and support lift me up each day

Make today an awesome day and remember to count your blessings!!! God bless!
