One of the bloggers I follow recommended checking out an arts and crafts web site:  Darby Smart. 

When you order for the first time you get a $10 off coupon and free shipping.  The above kit cost $10 so I decided I would try it out.  Of course, the kit comes with directions and pictures of what your finished product could look like (see above to the right; the 4 small square that say "love").  I saw 4 small canvases and thought four seasons.  Plus I had some scrapbook pages with dogs, flowers, seasonal pictures,...So far this is what I have.  I'm still working on the finishing touches.  At least I got off the computer for a while which is always positive.

I do enjoy reading for fun, but lately I've been reading to figure out how to have an impossible to achieve flat belly.  I also get to read a lot for my RETELL (teaching English to students whose first language is not English).

Going to Fundraisers

This weekend I went to 3 different fundraisers: one for ALS, a spinathon for the Jimmy Fund and a Kentucky Derby themed party for the Wakefield Public Library:
