|A wedding chalkboard I started. I took this picture for them to see the differences in chalk markers.|
On Tuesday we went to story hour in McGregor and afterwards had lunch at Simply with my friend Kaitlyn, who I am hosting women's group with in February. When we came home I worked on the play some more and had practice.
On Wednesday I worked at the shop, did some design work. Scores of people have been calling me this week. Seriously, so many I have had to turn people down. It must be a New Years Resolution thing. "This year I am going to put together a website, brochure, business card, logo, etc." If it rained like this all year, I wouldn't need another job.
Thursday I had a bit of an orientation at the Extension office in Elkader. I got handouts, went through the website files, toured the office, etc. Finished up the day at Whimsy and had play practice. It was the last day of OHP auditions so I thought I would have Link with me, but Bryce decided against being in it, so he stayed with Link.
Friday I met with Denise Jones about choreography, then worked more at the store and on design jobs. The first $0 day of the year, so it was a good thing I had so many projects to work on in the meantime. I finished the night watching "Beasts of the Southern Wild" which is beautiful! I highly recommend it. But please don't go in with the same nervous stereotype that a poor black little girl living only with an alcoholic father is going to get molested. Spoiler alert- no one gets molested and there is no sex in the entire show. Instead it is a beautiful story about the love between a father and daughter. A tear jerker withOUT that "Why, God, Why" feeling at the end.

Afterwards I might go to a drag show in McGregor or to Sadie's house for "Ladies Night In."
