Well... it's been raining,

which is good, because we needed rain. It will probably continue for the next few days.
I went to Home Depot on Monday and picked up a piece of dowel, but it took me until this afternoon to actually hang A Tisket a Tasket. I can't find the little bag of buttons and other embellishments I was collecting for it, so I had to hang it up without them. I'll add them when I find them, I guess.
I'm not ecstatic about the quilting job on this one. There's a reason I don't like straight-line quilting. I think it's because my lines are never straight.
But it fills the space nicely and matches my yo-yo tree. Ha! There was a method to my madness when I made that little accessory.
I started a yoga class (no pictures of me there because I can't bend and stretch and take a photo of myself).
Yoga is hard. Am I the only one who finds it really really difficult? It feels good, though. Especially at the end when we lie quietly, listening to soothing music, and the teacher covers us with blankets and puts lavender eye pillows on our eyes. Ahhhh...
I got a pedicure...
I received three spa gift certificates for my birthday so it's about time I used one of them.
And I met a "celebrity"...
...Member of Parliament and Opposition Critic for Youth and Multiculturalism Justin Trudeau. He's also the eldest son of the late former prime minister Pierre Trudeau. He came to speak at my school yesterday afternoon.
Yes, he's as charming as he is good looking. Plus he's wealthy, educated, intelligent, articulate... sigh... and married with two children. He had the girls (and women on staff) in a tizzy. It was fun.
And tonight, I'm off to dance class.
