BUT! I do have some news items. If there is new that can shatter the earth, our news could probably shatter an egg shell (if even that exciting), but here is our news anyway.
- I finished the quilting on a quilt for a friend's baby. I'm trying to decide if I should post pictures, because I haven't given the quilt to said friend (since I have to do the binding yet). I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. It's fun. And I'm hoping it won't be "weird". I don't have a great sense of what is weird and what isn't (I blame band-camp). Brian doesn't think it's weird (Brian's pretty much the least weird person I've ever met), so that's promising.
- We're kinda getting ready to redo our three-seasons room. There are a few things that we haven't really decided on yet, but we have mostly decided to tile it and put down a huge throw rug. Anyway, we got a great wood-burning stove, which we're putting in the three-seasons room to make it less like a three-seasons room and more like a four-seasons room.
- We went to look at Trent and Heidi's puppies. Their Chocolate Lab had puppies with what they believe to be a Border Collie. Anyway, we liked them very much. They're super cute. This is a picture of one of Trent and Heidi's sons with the one that we liked. Her name currently is Spooky. They're really funny because they will just be walking around "do-do-do" and all the sudden plop over and fall instantly to sleep. LOL! So cute. Anyway, we're in discussion about whether this is a good time for another puppy. However, as Brian's mom once said (and is my attitude), "Puppies are so much work and you'll have rearrange your schedule to take it out and they're messy... get one anyway." LOL!
- My headache that I had had since the beginning of last week has gone away. Yessss. At first I thought it might just be that there was a lot going on at work and no recoup time, but now I think I actually had a bug because Brian now has an awful headache and has been dizzy and nauseated (other symptoms of my headache).
