Baby it’s Cold Outside
What is wrong with this picture? The golf course is frosted over. The sun is just coming up and it is 38 degrees. Brrr!
I played golf in this today. It was 38 degrees. I busted my butt to get to the course in time (at the crack of dawn), skipping makeup and breakfast, going nuts at red lights, only to face a frost delay. Hurry up and wait…sigh.
Wearing four layers, one feels like the Michelin Man. But by the fourth hole the sun is high and it warms up rather quickly, and the layers peel off. In spite of the cold I played okay—I played to my handicap anyway. This was the first round of a two-round eclectic tournament. My net score was in the mid-70s despite an ugly start due to the cold.
I’ve been busy! I finished the quilt and I’m happy with it. Pictures later (it’s a gift).
I made a 50-page picture book of our trip to Africa, here’s a screenshot of the cover:
I had a great time making it, but I have to say it was intense and laborious. But only because I was a newbie and constantly on a discovery curve. I wanted to get it done in time for the holidays and I did. It’s being printed as we speak. Now I want to make books for our other adventures. What a fun way to relive your trips. Beats the hell out of DVD—you can pick up a book, it’s low-tech and tactile. By the way, I used Blurb by BookSmart and my book cost around $50. The program is free.
Now that the above projects are done I can concentrate on Holiday plans and preps. The cards are halfway done, that’s the good news, but no shopping has been done; and the tree, well, maybe this weekend. Yikes! Our ToDo list is long!
Life is good. I love being busy!
