It's windy here. Advisory over 1000 feet elevation.

It's dry, about 20-25% humidity.

It's warm, 70, but not too hot.

So, high fire danger.

Wind here is around 20mph gusting more. 90F and 9% humidity. Not going to be good when we get your wind.

Went out to lunch - Red Lobster so our main meal for the day, then to Old Navy and bought some long sleeved tops, sweatshirts, sweatpants, pjs, light rain jackets and clearance t shirts. I got a couple of long sleeved tees and Dh got a couple of things, too. Waited for today as it was 40% off with their card. Saved over $180 and got stuff we all need for the trip. Don't have much in the way of long sleeved things!

We had to be out as they were doing the home inspection. We first had to take something to the UPS store down the road so drove past the house on the way back and the agent and buyers were just walking to the door. They looked to be around our age. Tried not to be too nosy!

DH surprised me with tickets for tonight's Sharks home opener. His boss knows somebody that frequently gives him tickets and boss couldn't go tonight, so DH got them. These tickets are from someone who's been a season ticket holder since the Sharks started out here. On the glass. Next to the ice. Face value $206. Gasp. Yeah the lady next to me was chatting a bit with me. She's a doctor. Normal people like us can't afford those seats. lol

But wow is it different down there! Loud, tons of action, players banging into the glass right in front of you. BAM! Wow.

So that was a nice treat. We ate downtown before the game.

And the Sharks won, 4-1. Yay!

Yup, you'll need longer sleeves. Most useful item of clothing you can pack will be a hooded sweatshirt.

Yesterday at retreat was fun. Got home around 11pm. Took care of dog and went to bed.

Heading back out to retreat again shortly. I LOVE these long uninterrupted chunks of creative time.

Plus, I know about half the people from other IL stamping events...so that is nice.

When I got up, I figured I'd open the window as the sun was shining and I figured it wasn't that cold.

I wasn't prepared to "HEAR" weather when the sun was shining. But when I opened the window, it was quite loud.

Wind.

The reason we're all under a giant Red Flag (fire) warning right now.

So I finally did the math. There are 41 home games in the hockey season, times $206 per seat against the glass, times 2 people, is $16,892. I suppose they get a slight break when you buy season tickets?

Yeah I wish I had the money to shell out $17K or more a year on hockey game tickets.

Thanks for the anniversary wishes. DH and I went out to eat at one of our favorite local places. The.best.waitress.EVER was working a private party in their upstairs room, but she came down and chatted with us a little. The server we had was very personable, but not very efficient. Oh well. The food was excellent, though! We drove through the park on our way home.

When we got home, the boys had surprised us with a pan of brownies they had made. AND they cleaned up all the dishes from making the brownies, along with their lunch containers. Yay!

So it was a rather nice evening.

I substituted today - 5th grade again, but a different teacher than last time. One teacher focuses on history, another on writing, and the third on science. I was the writing teacher today.

Y'all know how Operation Write Home is one of my fave causes. On their website they have pages you can print out and have kids complete to write short letters to the men and women stationed overseas. I always like to print out some and take them with me in case I need a time filler when I'm subbing. So today I was able to give the kids the option of writing in their journals or writing a letter. Twelve kids wrote letters. Some verbatim excerpts:

"I hope you beat the enamys please do."

"Thank you for defending our contury from some really bad place."

"If it wasnt for you we could still have slaves. Thanks!"

and my favorite:

"Thank you for fighting in the war for us. I hope you have a fun time!"

Braves are on TNT until the Boston game on TBS is done.

It would be nice if we won today, please?

Mmmm Red Lobster.

I love long sleeved things. I love the time of year when you can snuggle up in them.

SOOOO excited about your long sleeves!!! I highly recommend polarfleece fuzzies as well. They will keep you warm even if it's a bit damp (cotton doesn't do well when damp). Not too much longer till you're on the road!!!

Aw.

I hope they will be as happy in the house as you were. You really made such a special, welcoming home and a beautiful yard out back. It's just a lovely place with such a warm feel to it.

I envy your buyers just a bit!

Although this will wear off quickly the moment the temps top 90 again, so probably this afternoon?

That sounds like so much fun! Knowing everyone must be cool too! I love not just having the chunk of uninterrupted time, but the inspiration of seeing what other people are doing.

It's been another crazy week here, but fun--Thursday went to see Arturo Sandoval, amazing Cuban protege of Dizzy Gillespie, with my friend Janet. We went to a performing arts center 'become a season ticket holder' event week before last. She won Sandoval tickets, I won tickets to a Queen musical coming in May. We both are taking the other person. Sadly, season tickets are not in either of our budgets but we both go as much as we can afford to, usually to less expensive events at the smaller theatres which aren't part of the season package.

One of my smaller life goals is to get my retirement savings built back up after the divorce to the point where I don't feel like the money should go there instead, so I can splurge on Season Ticketholder package!

The Arturo Sandoval show was amazing. Six musicians, everything from jazz to Cuban dance music to slow Latin jams. Sandoval is famous for playing the trumpet but also amazing on piano and percussion, and the sax player was incredible. They interviewed him in the morning on local NPR talk show--as excited as I was to see him play, the show just blew me away, and so did the interview. Just a charming, amazingly talented man who's so exuberantly in love with life, music and getting people up on their feet. Everyone was swaying and bopping in their chairs so much I was kind of amazed they were still bolted to the theatre floor when the show ended. That was really fun!

Yesterday I had the termite inspector over so I can pick up a termite warranty. From the sublime to the tiny world of destructive pests... but hey at least I got some great sax this week...

I had a week of enjoying my Door County sweatshirt before it got muggy here again... but the image of you in your Penn State hoodie warms my heart!

How is Mr Shadow doing?

Please tell him I say hello there, buddy. I miss coffee in the courtyard with both of you.

I'm guessing if you can afford that just for entertainment, you're not worried about the price tag.

Just remember, it's very important to exterminate the middle class so sports teams can make more money off of people who CAN afford the seats. And the box seats too.

Our city lost its basketball team about 10 years ago because voters refused to approve a referendum to demolish the 10-15 year old state of the art at the time basketball arena and build a new one that had more box seats so the owner could get more revenue out of the team. I love a good game and used to go see the team pretty regularly, but that attitude--hey I'm making tens of millions but it's not ENOUGH--not to mention the degree of steroid abuse coming out of so many sports makes me wonder what the hell we're doing running down teachers as slackers for wanting a raise maybe once every 5 or 7 years, but insisting that taxpayers subsidize a team owner's profits.

Don't get me wrong, I'm addicted to football and I love a good game and VERY much appreciate the athletic skill and really hard, dedicated practice that makes it possible. And I think capitalism mostly makes sense, so long as you enforce a structure that keeps everyone playing by fair rules (that is, it's great to make a profit, but you don't get to foul your neighbors' drinking water supply just because you could make more money if you didn't have to manage emissions and that sort of thing). But I just think our society has gotten to where we think if something doesn't make money, it's worthless. Um... education, if you do it properly, will never generate revenue. That's not what it's about. But I don't think that makes teachers who want to earn a decent raise socialists who hate freedom, or makes education worthless.

/RANT. Ack. Sorry about that. Just that all the shutdown rhetoric has me a bit fired up. I guess I just worry that we're starting to run society for the benefit of people who can afford courtside seats, and the rest of us should shut up and be grateful those folks haven't eliminated our jobs this week.

Jane, I was gonna say you don't need no stinkin pro basketball there with all the great collegiate ball but you do have a team that came in a couple years after the other one left. Although I had to look it up. And I can't say I'd heard of them, not being much into NBA. lol

But I agree with your rant anyway.

Hey, apparently next year your team will be renamed the old name - after another city relinguishes their hold on the name.

Yup!

Too bad normal tickets will still cost way more than they used to, even adjusted for inflation.

I think one reason I have such an enduring love for the Green Bay Packers is that they truly do run the franchise for the benefit of the city, and it's so clear that their fans love them profoundly for it. Driving past Lambeau when we went around Green Bay was kind of a religious experience for me.

I remember when I lived in Atlanta in the early 80s and would go to a lot of Braves games. I was barely making it financially, month to month, but a good field level ticket was only $8. Sigh.

And my book is in, the new Jack Reacher book. Will be picking it up at the library today.

Tired (a good tired) -- from stamping retreat. Very productive, even with the hour (one way) commuting each day.

Jane, I showed the ladies the stencils and the Dylusions ink spray. You'd think God came down from the heavens, they were that excited. Nobody had seen it before and it is really such a simple concept.

Oh, and my Perfect Pearls glimmer spray that I spritzed on a few scenes. Nobody had heard of that. They have been too busy just scenic stamping which is all about complicated scene building, masking and realistic coloring.

Oh Marge, how cool! That Dylusions ink spray is used in the new Technique Junkies, I saw the technique and thought oh well, I don't have that. But at least I've heard of it!

I'm glad you had fun. It's nice when people see something new and get excited, isn't it?

Not surprised they saw it that way! That's about how I felt!

I spent most of weekend working on smallish project that has been taking me way longer than I'd hoped (*looks apologetic and hangs head*), probably due to my not actually staying home for the weekend and working on it since I got back from my awesomely wonderful vacation. Took short break to watch 2nd miserable half of Panthers game at Ted and Ruthann's and sip a Shiner.

SO glad to hear you had a great time! I had a great time too!

Can I guess what the *smallish project* is?
Don't stress yourself -- if it is what I have heard from your other Pondie hostesses then it is a lot of work, truly an above and beyond gesture, and I can be very patient

You know what's funny (to me)? I didn't recognize Tom Hanks as Capt. Philips in all the trailers I was seeing. Now that I know it's him, he's unmistakable. But geez....
