Super Bowl Sunday

Its Super Bowl Sunday here in the US. I hardly watch football anymore but I always watch the superbowl, especially for the commercials. Since I am from the Midwest I guess I'll be rooting for the Bears.














Last night we went to a Beach Party at my church. The hall was decorated Caribbean looking. Some of us wore shorts and other summer gear. There was lots of good food and a band. We had smoothies, a chocolate fountain and great finger foods. Although my back still hurts all the time I managed to dance most of the night. It was really fun. It was like being at a wedding but there was no bride and groom. We had a limbo contest along with contests for the best hawaian shirts and craziest shoes. It was fun socializing with people that I normally don't. The kids dancing were the most fun to watch. First is a pic of my friends Molly and Rae.















This is our minister Lyn. She is really a lot of fun. She just came here from Massachusetts and is a lot of fun. I am just getting to know her and she's great. Crazy hat huh!














The chocolate fountain was the most popular place. My favorite thing to dip in it was a piece of fresh pineapple. Yummmm


I wove some more on the blanket but I am still not finished. I don't know why the last section seems to take so long but it does. I will wind a whole section of bobbins thinking that should be enough but I end up doing again and again so my judgement seems off a little.















I have been playing in the art studio with valentines and stamp and ink and such. There is nothing final yet to post. It takes me awhile to get confident artistically again. I do have a total mess down there so I am sure some work of wonder will emerge. This is the chaos on my desk.

Don't forget to enter the contest, all you need to do is comment on the blog or send me an email.

I think I would have been standing by the Chocolate Fountain all evening. What is it about that little brown bean that has us all captivated?
