(or at least in my mind).
LeRoi Moore, the saxophonist of The Dave Matthews Band, passed away today. So sad. They are my all-time favorite band. Their music is amazing. Simply amazing. Such a sudden, tragic loss of such a talented man. God bless.
On to a little bit sunnier of subjects. My exciting news... Remember this photograph?
It won honorable mention, and will be published in the national gardening magazine: Gardening How-To. Plus, I won about $75 in gardening supplies. Yay! Yes, I'm into gardening. Rather old-lady-ish, huh? That's okay. You can think that. I find it incredibly relaxing, though. Plus, there's something quite satisfying about nurturing something from seed to sprout through the dirt.
So, a run-down of the week so far:
*My envelope tag mini-book, "What We Did On Summer Vacation," got picked for The Catwalk over at SIStv! Woot!
*Our freezer broke. The wall on the inside cracked wide open. How, exactly, does that happen? The thing is only 2 years old.
* On Saturday, we had a fairly successful multi-family yard sale to raise money for Hazel's cheerleading squad.
* I FINALLY got my elliptical machine, and I've been using it every day. I'm so proud of myself. And, it feels good to be getting healthy again...even if it's taking forever to get to where I want to be. Slowly, but surely, I'm getting there. And, I won't give up.
*Speaking of not giving up, I drove Hazel to/from cheerleading yesterday all by myself in the stick-shift! Yay me! I only stalled out twice, but I'm getting better. Such a great feeling to finally be getting the hang of it. I didn't think that would ever happen.
That's about it for excitement. Thank you all so much for the sweet comments on my last post. I truly cherish all of them. Hope everyone is having a great week!
