I’m not going to complain about the weather.  Nope.  Not even a little bit, because eventually it will be so balls hot that the sidewalks melt and crumble into an oatmealish texture, so I am going to be quiet about the fact that we STILL HAVE THE HEAT ON and it’s mid-April.

I had no idea the Brontosaurus was ever up for debate.

And last week, I did one of those “drink wine and paint something while carefully supervised” sorts of events.  It was fun.  I’ve never painted anything before (other than the walls of our house and a birdhouse one time), and I followed most of the instructions. Until I got bored.

We did a paint-and-drink-wine thing, with careful instructions from a local artist. I followed most of the directions.
