a wonderful but exhausting weekend

My 30 year high school class reunion was just great. I don't know if it's age or what, but we were all just so glad to see everyone and had a great time visiting. Most of us still look pretty good for our age (snicker) and I didn't see any evidence of plastic surgery or botox usage. We'll see if that changes by the 35th year reunion!

I was so exhausted after two days of reunion activities (plus I had a bad headache) that we didn't go to church on Sunday but just stayed at home and tried to catch up, including grocery shopping and about six tons of laundry. I'm happy to say we made a lot of progress.

In the course of the house clean up I was sorting through a bunch of papers and found an unused gift certificate for Nearly overcome with giddiness, I went online and ordered the following:

These both look like great books and the total actual cost to me was $6.33. Not bad at all, I'd say.
It has been so hot here and apparently will continue into the middle of this week when we're supposed to get some rain, and hopefully some relief from the heat. Ah well, it is Kansas in August so I guess it's only to be expected. Hope it's cooler where you are.
I hope you are all having a great Monday.

Susan, Love your blog! And your jewelry. The mermaid necklace for the state fair is beautiful. Good luck with it.
So did you have a flashback of the high school lunch table? Barb

How lucky was that?! I dream of find any way of getting free or very cheap books. Why are we, as crafters, sooo addicted to them :o).
School reunions are the best. I went to my first one last year Our schools' 50th anniversary. It was great meeting up with people who you'd not seen for so long - IF you recognised them that is.
