It is a very nice way to start the day when someone tells you that you are awesome.
It is still early Friday morning. So early, I am still in my nightgown, with a pretty purple sarong wrapped around for modesty and thinking I should have had breakfast before sitting down at the computer.
Truth be told, I only thought I would pay some bills, but then I did all the social networking stuff, Facebook, Emails and Google + and I guess I got a little sidetracked.
I love Fridays for the fact that after my 5 hour shift I have a weekend to look forward to. (plus I get to drink wine from my Friday glass)
A long weekend this time around. And the reason we have Monday off? Adelaide Cup day.
Yep, we get a long weekend because of a horse race. Not that I am complaining. Any extra paid day off work is okay with me.
And my plans for the weekend?
Saturday there will be baking. A mate of ours is turning 50 and what do you get a man who has everything?
Brownies, Afghans and & Chocolate cherry cookies.
His wife doesn’t bake, and this man (like several men in my life) loves my sweet stuff.
So the plan is to arrive at the party on Saturday night with a box full of yummy. I am sure it will be well received.
As for the rest of the weekend, after all the regular chores are done, I would like to do more work on my secret project and hopefully get some painting done.
The weather is still fiercely hot with a good dose of humidity (high 30′s C) so I might choose to hibernate in the coolness of the girl cave when I can.
I had a request the other day for a new painting. One of the guys asked me to paint him a doughnut. It was all a bit of a laugh, but you know me, always up for the challenge.
And when you think about it, how much fun could a painting of a delicious sprinkle doughnut be? Certainly there would be some challenge. Lots of curves, and light and shadow.
While waiting for my art class, I got out my iPad and doodled an idea
Of course I popped it on my Tumblr too and although not as crazy popular as my “cuppa tea”, the doughnut is getting quite a bit of attention making it my 2nd most popular Tumblr post ever. Ta Dah!!
My art class project of the “fabric print” is now finished, to my conjuring up images and memories of psychedelic 70″s caftans and curtains.
It was fun to paint and next week we move onto another project.
This weekend there is also plans to check through our camping gear. There is a road trip planned to visit my best mate and “other hubby” Ty for a few days and we have decided to go budget. Well our budget decided it but I love camping anyway (really I do) and so we plan the load the car off and head East for Easter.
Kids are happy, they get to housesit so there is plenty of (unfunny) jokes about parties being attempted by Big C.
This time they will get to fend for themselves with the cooking. No premade lasagna or curry in the freezer. Thier only request is to leave plenty of chocolate.
I probably should leave some home-made hot cross buns too. And take some. Could you imagine the uproar if I arrived on Ty’s doorstep with no buns or bikkies? It would be hilarious but I think there would be some serious pouting.
Well, as my mother would say, “This isn’t getting anything done” so I really should finish this off and get back to paying bills.
Could get dressed too… meh, plenty of time for that. Still 4 hours before I have to leave for work
Catch you all over the weekend no doubt,
