Tablecloth for Backyard Picnic Table


Just a REMINDER, for future reference...

A 60" x 84" tablecloth works perfectly! (Wish we could always just remember that somehow...)

I put on the striped one with those dimensions and it looks great!

(The only drawback is that it doesn't cover up the ends, so you can see underneath to where we store all the yard stuff. But we could always come up with another way to cover those.)

Tuesday at the Office...


It was a long day. We didn't leave there until just past 7:30 p.m.

We were working (jointly) on Pinnacle Award submissions for IFEA. But natually Marilyn mistressmarilyn, had a ton of other work to do -- including several meetings. (Those endless meetings!)

My personal frustration yesterday was the (on-going) printer issue. (sigh)

There's a local color printer -- but I've never used it, either. (It's out of toner and not working currently.) Anyway, the work I was doing yesterday required being able to print color photos.

What to do? Collapse )

The fun for the day?

I got to join in the 'RF Boot Camp' lunchtime session for the day!

It was walking in the area, so I took in my (new) shoes, socks, sweatband and towel -- but neglected to take a tee to change into. No problem! There's always a 'spare' tee around the Festival office. (grin)

Oh! And I took my handy-dandy handweights, too.

It wasn't much exercise for the other three participants, but it was plenty for me. Collapse )

The office is pretty quiet this time of year, with lots of people out on vacation, etc. But there was considerable 'bustle' as we all tried to finish up Pinnacle-related projects! More than once I ended up printing on the wrong paper because signals were crossed about who was using the color printer...

Anyway, Marilyn wrote some wonderful submissions (as always). I didn't get to read any of the other submissions, but I'm sure we'll end up bringing home a lot of gold awards again this year!

Marilyn finished up the last of her part this morning -- working it in between meetings. Well, actually, she had one meeting while actually working on it! (smile)

She kept the 'pirate proclamation' that she and I made for the Opening Ceremony, not wanting to lose it. (IFEA doesn't return any submitted items, I'm afraid.) I think I'll always look back fondly on us bringing home that oversized parchment with the printed text so we could burn around the edges using a candle. (It's a wonder we didn't set the house on fire...) Then we 'distressed' it a bit and rolled it up and tied it with a piece of leather. (smile)

I'm running off on a tangent here, so I'll stop now. Anyway, it was a long, busy day.

So what really bothered me about yesterday? We got home too late -- and too tired -- to go and play tennis!

(Yes, we are very focused on our tennis right now -- and loving every minute of it!)

Tennis on Monday!


Even though I hadn't felt that hot during the day on Monday, I still wanted to go play the second Marilyn mistressmarilyn got home from work. (smile)

So we put on our tennis clothes and grabbed our bags and rackets and headed off...

It was a definite break-through session for both of us!

Marilyn summed it up by saying that our 'ball sense' was working -- and I'd have to agree with that. Things were finally coming together, anyway.

After not playing tennis at all in years, the first few times out were tough going. But it's really coming along now.

One of my next tasks is to set up our exercise journals that we want to keep, where we can each blog to our heart's content about tennis and other workouts... (smile) And then we could simply link things in our main journals, I guess. (Rather than go on about it here.)

EDIT: Yes, I know most of my friends would be delighted if I'd stop blathering on and on about tennis... (grin)

We'll see how that goes...

go me!

Household Duties -- and More!


I really need to do some laundry. I need to tackle my bedroom. Seriously! There are clothes everywhere. I think a 'clothes bomb' exploded in there. (sigh)

In fact, don't get me started on the list of things I need to do. It's longer than my arm...

Collapse )

So... What about the next list?

Glad you asked! (smile)

I guess I need to make a huge list of 'To Do' items!

Yikes. (grin)

But look how much you can manage in a day if you put your mind to it. (As Marilyn always says, "The more you do, the more you can do!")site stats
