It's the end of an era . . .
It all started with a big snow storm and an impatient girl wanting to move to Austin on time. Then there were the woefully inept solutions to the problem (scroll to Feb. 22). So a year and a half later, I finally got a new gasoline door.
Look Ma! No Ducktape!
Now I can switch out the locking gas cap with the other one and have a normal experience at the gas station.

Summer Week 4
Saturday- my parents drove into town from Kansas to spend time with my mom's parents (and me!)
Sunday - Father's day - went to Texas Land and Cattle
Monday - take my dad to the airport, lunch at Arandas
Tuesday - mall with my mom and grandmother, Astro's game
Wednesday - more shopping, church
Thursday- watch my cousin's, out to lunch in Rosenberg, more shopping, pick my dad up at the airport where they have lost his luggage for the second time in four days.
Friday - run errands, pick up more pottery, make lasagna, movie night
Saturday - lazy day, laundry, dishes, spend night with friends in Richmond
Sunday - drive to Friendswood, shower at home, drive to Houston, shop at Galleria, drive to church in Sugar Land, pizza dinner with friends, drive home so tired but can't sleep.
Notice the lack of reading Great Expectations. I am forcing myself to read that before reading anything else, but since I am not reading that either, I'm not reading much of anything. But I did read My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picault which my mom made me read. (She called me crying... "You just have to read it"). It was well worth it.

My version of magnetic poetry is the book lover's edition. So I have lots of book related words. But sometimes I want to write things that are not so book related. This is the result. Because crack is never the answer.

Summer: Week One
Monday and Tuesday were filled with too much rain.But on Tuesday I did break free and paint pottery. I had started a series of plates with song lyrics on them in the last year. So far I have two that decorate the area above my kitchen cabinets. On Tuesday I painted the third. On Wednesday I painted one more (picture to come) . On Thursday I had mucho people over to my apartment. On Friday I went to Barnes and Noble and started reading Great Expectations and painted one more plate. Saturday I spent time with family and painted one more plate. On Sunday I spent more time with family and church. Monday I went to Austin with a friend. Well I guess that covers more than my first week. But it was a busy, painting pottery week. Not too bad for something that started out with a disappointing rainstorm.
