Sneaking In...

For a small update about the weekend.


After the snow (oh, yes it did indeed snow on Saturday) I shuffled on over to the Blogfest, which was wonderful...I met all sorts of interesting people, making any sorts of nervousness I may have had evaporate completely (and were thinking that we'll be getting together in the future) Dina and I even had the opportunity to be interviewed by Coyote Radio Theater (which I immediately took to like a fish to water...because really, lets face it...put me in front of a microphone and give me license to talk about myself...what's not to love and succeed at?) The program will be airing next Sunday I believe, and there will also be a Podcast, so I will keep you posted...and you'll laugh, because I swear my voice got all NPRish when I was being interviewed, and I started to seriously consider why I am not doing radio shows in my real life...more on that later though.


And, on the Sunday front, I started the morning with a wonderful hike/walk with a fellow blogger I met on Saturday on one of my more favorite trails in town...Peavine. We did 3 miles, and the time flew by...between the wonderful conversation and the near sighting of a mountain lion. To which I wondered if we did have a run-in, as you are supposed to throw things at them...rocks and such...or be loud...according to the little poster that is posted at the beginning of the trail (both of which I consider to be rude actions...I mean, I can be loud, but I am a lousy aim with anything thrown as I throw like a girl...and didn't want to knock out my fellow blogger, it's such a bad way to try to impress someone don't you think?)


I then spent the rest of the day with Mom and Rozz...not being creative unless you consider stuffing ourselves with Japanese creative...or running various grocery errands creative either.

We did have a great time though, and I got to drive the car (now that I'm looking for excuses to do that all the time...I washed her too this weekend...giggle)


We found these sweet little black rubber stair welcome mats (yeah, whatever they are) and I offered to buy them for her for an early Mother's Day present...awww...






Don't they look amazing? I like the idea of them on the steps so that we won't be slipping around in the ice and snow...or rain...

She had the Ding Dong...Wizard Of Oz door mat already (it always makes me laugh)











And she bought herself the matching half circle door mat to match the step mats, and since it weighs about 50 lbs. (heavy rubber) we won't have to worry about it blowing away in the springtime winds...She was a little worried about impulse purchasing, but I assured her that I think the impulse rule only applies to things that are super expensive...and well, $13 is not too much to worry about.

I also did the drawing for a special little ephemera thank you card that I promised I would do in the beginning of the week...and the winner is...

Velvet Brick!

So, my dear, I will work on that this week and send it out to you...

Your blogging / hiking side kick here! Fun day! Thanks. Glad nobody had to throw rocks at each other to scare away a mountian lion. Actually, throwing rocks at each other might just confuse the mountain lion enough to make it move on!

Well, up way too late here. But that's ok. Just had another fun chat.... Tell your boss not to complain if you're tired! :)

When is the next blogging get together I wonder???

Hi S,

Angie and I had such a good time meeting you at BlogFest. In particular, witnessing your transformation in the studio into the NPR Lady. Straaaaaange and wonderful transformations happen in the studio, they say. And they were right!

Looking forward to getting together next month!
