Holiday Weekend Notes...

We had a wonderful weekend, nice to relax! After I got off work on Saturday, we drove to Ashland to re-visit our college days with some of our college friends. Our friends Doug & Crystal live in a large, old farm house that was Doug's grandparents and have a large farm on which their 5 kids are free to run and play. What a great place to raise kids! Mina got her first horse ride, and LOVED it. She got to ride on Tank, one of Doug's dad's horses. Doug let the kids ride the horse while leading them around the corral. We had a wonderful time making s'mores and visiting around the fire Sat. night, and then left at lunch time on Sunday, and took Mina to the Lincoln Children's museum (which on a Sunday afternoon should have been called the Lincoln Children's zoo!). We then did a bit of shopping and had supper before heading home. Yesterday we got to sleep in til 8! We spent the afternoon at the water park in Hastings with some friends and then had pizza for supper with the friends and my parents. Mom and Dad were going in to the hospital for sleep studies, so it worked out great to visit with them a bit. Dad was going in for his first study and Mom was going in to get the CPAP measurements for the machine, as when she had her study done, she stopped breathing 20 times! Good Grief, no wonder she feels lousy all the time! Well, I had better get to work. On the beading front, Chris has been making some really cute mushrooms out of his glass, and I will get those made into pendants. I also am working on a line of school spirit jewelry for the Blue Hill Bobcats, so I need to get to work on those! Happy Tuesday!
