busy like a bee!




Its been another busy weekend. I have been out it seems like every night for the past week! Or at least running around like a lunitic! Tuesday was a beach day.. cant remember if i was home tuesday night or if we went somewhere, Wednesday we went to Toronto to see the Sound OF Music and didnt get home til late. The show was really good. Except the guy that played the captian was sooo stiff. I actually started to laugh (quite inappropriately !) in one part of the show when the Captain opened his mouth and started to sing, and it just struck me soo funny that I started to laugh hysterically. Well, you cant laugh out loud in a theatre like that.. so I put my hand over my mouth, sunk way down in my seat and proceded to have silent convulsions of laughter while tears rolled down my face and people around me were probably irritated! My friend Brenda said she couldnt even look at me or she would have lost it too. and my daughter Jennifer said, she knew as soon as he opened his mouth that I was going to lose it. It was good though. The kids that played the vantrop kids were soo cute and so good!


On thursday it was back to work and then that evening, to quilt guild meeting. we made little bunny purses.. cute, but I didnt finish mine. I'll show you if I ever do finish it.


Friday night I went to another musical with my daughter. We went to see Gettysburgh which was written by a very talented man from our area. It was really good.. no fits of laughter this time. (thank goodness... though it is so much fun to lose yourself in laughter!!) Yesterday, I puttered around here in the morning, went to the grocery store and then to two graduation parties, got home around 10 last night.


Which brings us to this morning.. now I'm sitting here talking to yous.. with little frannie snuggled up inside my robe like figgy was the other day. Im headed out to a friends shortly to teach her to blog!! I'll introduce her after shes up and running! After that, we're going to see Oklahoma again (my daughter is in it) as today is the last day. They are doing a 2:00 matinee and a 7:30 show. we're going to the matinee.

Luckily I have tomorrow off, and plan on staying home and doing some house cleaning and garden work. orrrr.. I could go shopping!

I'm in a summer book swap that Kai is hosting. We're supposed to send a copy of a book weve enjoyed and also something that represnts the book. so I'm doing the secret life of bees and sending the little needle felted bee I made, some honey, a honey pot and also a little wind up bee! I hope my partner likes these things!

And cant wait to see what I get in return!


Woah, hes pretty ugly!

Well, I need to go get dressed, I'm going to a barn sale! hoping to find some little treasures! I bought this the other night and I need stuff to put on it! Got any good ideas?? Have a sweet sunday girls!


Anyone interested in a special halloween swap if I can think up a good one?

What an adorable bumble bee! I had to laugh at your story about losing it at The Sound Of Music. I did something similar when we went to see Joseph in Chicago years ago. Donny Osmond was playing the lead and at the end I couldn't control myself and shouted out, "DONNY" to my childhood crush and much to my daughter's embarrassment!

Little Dollings by Brenda O. said...

Yup, Viv, I knew that about you.. you're that lady who snorts in theaters!! LOL. (I actually have a local friend who goes to the movies w me - we sit way up high, and watch the whole crowd turn around to look up. LOL) So sad we don't live closer: We two Brenda's could take you two snorters out for an evening!! (sorry, just smack me!!)

hugs!

You are too busy to do art. I don't have a bathrobe, but hop over to Amos's blog and see what I made for him. Have a great week. Susan

M.L. @ The House of Whimsy said...

Darling little bee. You are one talented lady. And...one very busy one too. Your "inapproprieate laughter" story cracked me up. Why is it that when it's inappropriate...that makes it all the harder to control? Hee-hee!

AwtemNymf said...

I love your needle felted bee! Beeee-utiful! You know I'm always game for a Halloween swap! Double Bonus if your hosting!Maybe a Secret Swap title : Masquerade Mash or Bash. Something with a mask. Oh the possibilities! What to do with the iron tier thingy.... you could do fruit, sweets, your felted creations, paint or stamp supplies _ it'll look like one of those old fashioned carousel organizer for stamps and pads. Or your spools of thread next to your sewing machine! Hmmm!

Kai said...

THAT BEE IS TERRIFIC!!!! I love it! And your swap package is going to be darling! Oh, I DO want to be in your Halloween swap if you decide to do one! Your swaps are so much fun, Viv! You are a busy, busy girl! And thank GOODNESS I wasn't with you when you started laughing during THE SOUND OF MUSIC because someone laughing ALWAYS gets ME started. We would have been tossed out on our ears! LOL!

Sue with Bountiful Acres said...

The bee is FABULOUS!!!! He's so cute. I had a play like that once where something struck me as hysterical and I was laughing...the actor came and talked to me afterwards. It was community theater so it wasn't so bad, but boy was i embarrased. LOL!

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

That bee is so darn sweet...m..

Lydia said...

Oh, the bee is so adorable!!! She's going to love your swap-who wouldn't!

I have a 3 tier black metal rack almost identical to yours, only the top is different. It has an oval wired top that holds my business card or whatever.

I use it to display my pins or other stuff at shows. It also looks great with tarts and cupcakes on it:)

Enjoy the barn sale!

When would the Halloween swap date be-approximately? xo la

Gypsy Mermaid said...
