Anyway, we spent a little time at Home Depot and about 4 hours dressing the place up.
Nessa was a huge help. though she immediately cluttered up the place with her toys. The other fountain is right behind her. She promptly dropped her ball into it.
All and all, I'm pretty happy with the way it is shaping up. We still have to decide how we want to cover the air conditioning unit. Can you say "ugly"? I'm thinking of having JR bring home a pallet from work to make a screen out of it. Then hang some plants off the pallet screen. I think that will make a nice vertical herb garden.
Another part of the weekend was spent doing a little recon work at Michael's Craft Store for the work holiday party. The planning committee plans to make these for the decorations in the large meeting room where lunch will be served.
And these for the staff lounge where we plan to set up the desserts. Except we won't be using candles with flames. We are planning to pick up some of those flame-less candles. The ones with the little LED lights. The University fire department frowns on fire inside the building.
We found both ideas on Pinterest, of which I've become a Pinterest fool. I spend way too much time on that particular site. I now have about 15 projects I want to do that I have absolutely no time for.
If you and I are friends on Facebook you'll know that JR and I went to the Paul McCartney concert. To say we enjoyed yourselves would be an understatement. It was fantastic, amazing, fun and expensive but worth it.
There are a couple of things that I noticed about concert going in the 21st century that are different than the 20th.
- instead of holding up lit lighters the attendees held up cell phones with lit lighter apps on them. Very high tech.
- maybe it was just this crowd in this venue (a stadium with the roof open) but there wasn't that blue haze of pot smoke. Or any pot smoke smell around us. Maybe, I have a weird sort of nostalgia but I sort of missed it.
Here is a really bad video taken with my cell phone.
That is all from me. Please go visit a few of the others participating in Random Tuesday Thoughts.
