A Happy, Busy Weekend 🍷🌸

I got a TON done this weekend. Art wise, household wise, friend-time wise, I even got a bit of exercise in by riding my scooter. πŸ›΄πŸŒˆβœ¨

I finally went to check out the Hobby Lobby that opened near us (rode the kick scooter there.) I feel so conflicted about that store. 🀨 I think the company itself is garbage, and especially being pan, I have personal beef with them. But the stores are a dream for me, nothing quite like them –not Michael’s nor JOANN– and they employ a LOT of local people. So many that would be jobless right now are employed there, including many fellow immigrants. So there is good and bad. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

Anyway the store was freaking AMAZING. 🀩 I spent less than $35 and got a bunch of snail things, a bunch of squirrel things (what are the odds!) a GIANT wind spinner made of brightly colored metal, some accessories for my bears, and a rainbow dinosaur umbrella!! I was losing my πŸ’©. Haha!

Also got to go to Home Depot for a few little bins to organize my hug’s smaller accesories.

Later, I got some writing done, in company of Vanilla Bean and with a nice snack:

It was really nice to see our friends (on different days.) Even though right now we don’t see them as often, they mean the world to me. They are my family.

I am also quite excited because, due to some waits, I now have two wonderful bears I am expecting: Roulade, a mouse whom I’ll be naming Chizito (after an Argentinean snack similar to Cheetos) and Clinton, a wonderful bear whom I will be calling Mud Pie. I’ve already made necklaces for both of them!

I’m hoping for another productive week. Really happy because Christopher won’t be home late this week!

Hope it’s a wonderful one for you guys too! πŸŒˆβœ¨πŸŒŸπŸ’–

My Best Girl πŸ’•

I love my Rosemary so deeply, so utterly and completely. She is the best cat I have ever had. She’s been sleeping with me lately, something that used to not be allowed, because she would wake us up by playing with the doors. Well, I immobilized the doors by using no less than FOUR doorstops on each. Happy us, happy Rosie. She cuddles with me all night.

I captured this photo of her today, when I found her for the first time in the little hidey-hole of the cat tree I got for the porch. Made me smile a whole lot!
