Saturday Musings

I've just been puttering around on the computer making sig pics for folks. I did not expect the response I got when I made that offer - talk about a deluge! I think I'm done with about a third of the requests that were made.

Last day of school was yesterday but the girls will continue to do some work through the summer - math, reading, writing. We went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium on Thursday and it was fantastic. The shark tank was very cool with some huge tuna and huge-mongous sunfish. I didn't know they were that big. Three divers entered the tank while we were there. One was cleaning while the other two kept an eye on the sharks (and waved at the kids). All of the exhibits were beautiful and I'm looking forward to when we can spend some more time there.

I haven't heard much from my big girl. She tends to only call me when she needs something but I take what I can get. She owes us money so it's hard to just call her to pass the time of day without that subject coming up and I'm a little tired of asking about it. Oh well.

We're gearing up for the big trip to Washington in just a few weeks. My mom is going to fly out here and drive up with us. My brother is getting married on the 7th and I'll be making the cake. I need to get busy making sugar flowers so I'm not rushing to do it the week before. I called my friend that lives in Sequim and she offered for us to stay with them the entire week of the 9th-13th. I was only thinking of staying with them for a couple of days and then hotelling it after that. She said that would be silly, that their home is central to many of the things we want to do and we should just make their house our home base for the week. What a financial boon for us! After that it's on to the Peep Meet. I'm so looking forward to that. It'll be very cool to meet some more of the great OT peeps.



  1. Shar! I'll bet you were not expecting so many requests for siggies! We're all suchs DAW's aren't we??

    And no, no new bathroom, and for now, no new carpet. However we may not have to pay rent next month!

  2. Sorry about the continued struggles with the elder DD.

    The Monterey Bay Aquarium is something else! We really enjoyed seeing it almost eight years ago. Then we went down to Carmel and got tossed out of its library for using the computers too long! =:-0

    Pink: Maybe Shar just wanted to get her DAW count up. ;-)

  3. Good grief! I only have 17 posts in that whole thread. I think there are a couple of others that are more concerned about those DAW counts. :P

  4. *hops* I can't wait to meet you!

  5. :) Me too, Debs. We haven't had much contact as far as OT and blogland go but I always enjoy your posts and I've heard that you're pretty sweet. :)

    I'm excited about the whole meet and the week before with my family and friends. hmmm... *hops too*

  6. Shar, how old is your older daughter? (I have a 19 y.o.)

    One day, will you make me a siggie? I don't need one any time soon, since I don't post much on OT these days, but I'm sure I'll be back one day. :)

    I have you linked now. Stop by and visit when you get a chance!

  7. Oh! I saw that sunfish earlier this year with my son's class. I was amazed at it's size! You've made some awesome sigs over there, Shar. Great work!

  8. That picture over there----> doesn't look like you. I just thought you should know.
    Bravie<--being helpful since 1966.

  9. I said it over there, but wanted to say it here, too. I LOVE the sig you made for me. It's perfect.

    I also really liked the sigs you made for other people too - very creative and fun. Thanks again for doing them!

  10. mtw - my oldest daughter is 20 years old. Her life is a continual drama but I love her and keep hoping the best for her.

    Bravie - I still don't know if that's a compliment or not. *pthhht*

    frodis - You are more than welcome. :)
