Random Bits and Pieces

You know how I love books…of course you do I write about them all the time. Remember when I wrote this post about “Buck Naked Faith”? Well I heard from the author and apparently his second book: “Plastic Jesus” is out and he has an excerpt at this link. Go check it out!

I believe Sandras has done it again! He really has a way with words. I’m going to get my copy this week and look forward to soaking in new wisdom!

In other news…I am working through Thursday then I’m off until October 16th (Praise GOD) and I’m looking forward to; sleeping late, some time with friends, completing the ‘blue room’ scripture border, reading tons, blog surfing and posting, perhaps checking out some chick flicks and even maybe an action/adventure or two, and preparing for my first ‘Arts and Crafts’ show.

Yes, you read that right. My mother decided we were beading in vain if we were never going to sell our wares. I signed us up for two craft shows. We’re doing one October 14th and one November 18th and we have been beading like maniacs ever since I got the confirmations.

My brother is also coming to town the end of October and is finally getting our website up and running! More about that when it’s done. I’ve got to remember to get some good pictures of our projects before the show and AT the show so we can include them on the webpage.

I had a wonderful weekend of garage sale-ing and dinner out with friends we hadn’t seen in far too long! We did a ‘review of restaurants’ (translation: we changed our mind once we were seated at the first place, and left after appetizer and beverage).

We ended up at a place my husband and I really loved the time we went. You’ll never believe it when I tell you…but it’s at one of the Culinary Schools here in OKC. It’s called Chef di Domani (Chef of tomorrow). Not only is the food exquisite, but the entire staff is culinary students and so it’s fun to ask specific questions about preparation, etc. and test their skills while learning along with them. The whole experience was fun and memorable... and the food…excellent!

I found some wonderful bargains at the garage sales on Saturday, including a few vintage items for a friend of mine who has recently starting selling some treasures! I hope she can use them.

I suppose I should get busy and try to focus for day 1 through 4! It won’t be easy, but by weeks end I’ll be free long enough to re-energize through Paul’s final 8 weeks of school and upcoming holidays and potential change!

Have a random kind of day!

Oh, how fun! I've done the craft show thing, and they are fun, yet exhausting. You will do so well is my guess.

The restaurant sounds divine! I'm going to look into something like that for here...

Have a great day!

Sounds like you had a super weekend! The craft show should be fun. I'd love to try that restaurant - maybe if I ever get back to OKC, we'll look it up.

Wow! You sound like you have a FUN but busy schedule! What kind of treasures did you pick up at the garage sale?? I kept talking about going out 'garage sale-ing' with my girls on a Saturday, but my "ye of little faith" attitude always holds me back - no faith that I'd find a treasure..no faith that there'd be money to spend. Hmmmm.. Sounds like I need a tune up!! Anwyays..looking forward to seeing your bead work too - and a new website !! WOW!! You are amazing!
