I feel so rich!

Phew! I'm so exhauseted (in the best possible way!) after this weekend! I don't even know where to begin to describe the weekend I had. I met so many amzing people. On Saturday evening we went to Leon's aunt's 60th birthday party and I met a whole bunch of his family that I've never met before. They are all such interesting and wonderful people! Don't know why he has kept them from me for so long!

On Sunday Leon's sister, her husband and her husband's sister's family came to visit us. We had such a ball! We went shopping, ate wonderful food and chatted up a storm!

I really feel like a rich woman today for having met (and now have them in my life) such amazing people!

Here's a couple of pics from yesterday:

This is such a SPECIAL lady! Love you Cile!
Leon - always the clown! :)

On Friday I went to the doctor and got the "clean bill of health". I really feel great and plan to start spinning one of these days.

Tomorrow is my last day at home. I will return to work on Wednesday. Not really looking forward to it, but still very greatful to have a good job in these times.

As you can see - no new blog banner up yet. Just didn't have time to finish it. Today I want to finish a couple of unfinished projects and relax a little - while I still can!

Tomorrow will be my last day time art class. Looking forward to that and will hopefully finish my painting. In answer to Mel's question about selling my paintings - the first couple really do fell like my babies and I don't think I'll part with them. I already had a request from one of my colleagues though to buy one of my paintings, so I painted something similar for her.

As time allows, I will sell commision paintings. This way I gain experience and confidence and at least get some return for my class fees and art supplies. So - if you have a request - let me now and we'll make a plan!

Hope all of you have a great day and a super happy week! :)
