Weekly Round Up

This week I…

...earned my first bit of income through this blog: $.18.  Someone ordered Top Gun through the Amazon link.  (I don't see names, just what they ordered.)  Now just $9.82 until I get paid.  Can you tell this blog is a labor of love?

...watched my first episode of Downton Abbey.  Yes, I think I'm hooked!

...Worked on a sewing project with Mom.  It’s going to be a table-runner.

...celebrated The Magican’s 44th birthday.  We celebrated with a cozy afternoon of getting soundly trounced by Anne M. playing The Settlers of Catan (One of our all-time favorite board games.)

...went to with The Magician to join my family watching my sister Rachel's performance in an oleo.  An oleo is a series of song and dance routines that have a theme.  This year's was traveling, so they had songs like "Route 66."  There was also a melodrama written by one of the organizers, and some comedy skits.  It's a church community-building event with all of the beer, pop, and popcorn you care to eat.  They do charge admission, but basically they break even.  They've been doing it for more than 30 years, and as they have been sold out for as long as anyone can remember.  I think it is a cool way to build connections in their very large parish, and I think it would be a lot of fun if we had something like that here.
