Well, I survived my week of crazy and topped it off with a relaxing weekend home. Andy and I opted to rent a bunch of movies, cook a delicious salmon and asparagus dinner and veg on the couch this Halloween.
No weekend images this week-I forgot, sorry. But I did take a really crappy video of Corey and Mauney battling it out.
Also, I’m starting a second blog. For those of you that didn’t know- I’m a history nut. I’ve been craving a place to blabber on about history so that’s what the second blog is all about. If you’re interested in that sort of thing, feel free to pop on over and check it out. HERE.
That’s about it for this weekend. I’ll be back to normal blogging tomorrow. See ya then.
I’m signing off for the rest of the week. Yeah, I know it’s only Monday but I can see already that I’m going to be busier than a bee clear until next Monday. All day long, I’ve been answering my boss with, “Of course I can also get that done by Friday!” and then cringing just a little.
I have a book to finish reading and then write an analysis paper on, a five page midterm assignment for Art History, and an Art History Exam to study for and take.
On top of that we are going live with our new web page at work this week so there is a lot of pressure on me to finish processing several collections so they can be included in the unveiling of the new site. I also have about a bazillion donations to process, about 100 boxes of books to haul to our book sale room, and several new oral history interviews to archive. So basically I’ll be working late, studying late, and racing the clock all week.
No time for blogging, face-booking, or etsy-ing. Hopefully I’ll have my sanity back by Monday and then I can come back. Until then, I hope you all have a less crazy week then I will!

Artist Robin Barcus Slonina is working on the coolest project! She’s creating 50 dresses, one for each mainland state. Why are these dresses cool? Well, just see for yourself:
New York’s Garbage Dress
Iowa’s Prairie Dress
Maine’s Pine Cone Dress
Minnesota’s Corn Dress
Nevada’s Casino Chip Dress
And she’s not done yet! I’m kind of curious to see what the Utah dress will be- a beehive maybe? You can read all about how she constructed these dresses on her blog. Pretty fun project if you ask me!
Yesterday I spent some time making apple bread and apple crisp. My dahlia’s also decided to open up!
Andy and I had the entire weekend to ourselves. It was completely glorious to have some time with just the two of us around here. I really look forward to getting married and finally being able to have our own space, with time alone together whenever we want it. One of the best weekends yet!!
The weekend, that is. Yay! Let’s all do a happy dance.
I’ll do it to even though Andy and I will be spending the entire weekend studying for the exams we have to take on Monday. But we won’t let that spoil it!
