Mounted six paintings, figured out, in graphic detail why I will never use bottled ink ever again. Why, yes, the sparrow painting is pretty much compost now. Sewed six costumes for a musical. Got another TS chapter out. Got another chapter and bits of Winter War done. Have half of a promised Immer-fic/Y!Gal Kiriban done. Am freaking out over being 95% done with another chapter of TS and not sure where to cut the line and might end up with another 2000 words for the NEXT chapter done. I actually plotted TS out to the Bitter End. I am... not sure if I'm in mourning or birthing pains.
Jet and I folded origami boxes for his 17 Valentines together, and stuffed them with Hershey's kisses. He and I have been playing as often as possible before John and I go away for the trip.
Did a test shrimp boil last night as a test for feeding maybe 250-300 people tomorrow night. I'll be on kitchen duty from 2pm until we fall over or everyone's fed. Am packing for Biloxi to rebuild houses again. Painted a magnolia bowl for Empty Bowls, and am likely to go into the ceramics place to do another. Helping with part of an alpha test for a site, and it amused me to be able to read the #@$*&! stack to help the developers out on three different bugs I found. They were grateful for that. I was... pleased.
Ordered seeds to plant NOW to get the seedlings good and going for spring and shoveled the walk and driveway this morning, made early coffee for church, and I'm layleader next week for Valentine's Day and Jazz Sunday and I'll probably break out the purple silk and Silver Zoot suit.
omg... with the Saints winning tonight, the Shrimp Boil tomorrow is going to be INSANE. I hope we make enough to cover the costs of most of the other folks that are going on the trip to work. It's a fund-raiser for our Biloxi trip to help with food and travel and rental cars for the whole group of 20 folks.
Yes, we'll be in the Big Easy a bare week after Mardi Gras, and we're having pancakes for Shrove Tuesday and I'm on the hook for the King Cake. *laughs and laughs* John's Mom and Dad are arriving half a week before we leave, they'll be staying with Jet while we're gone.
This is going to be a very interesting couple of weeks.
