Friday Happenings

Just got home from a surprise lunch with Husband at the Muddy Rudder a local restaurant here in town. Now it's always a treat to eat out but on the spur of the moment it's even better so I like getting those e-mails. I got there a bit early and as the restaurant is right on the edge of the river I enjoyed watching the sea gulls and some other kind of birds doing some fishing for their lunch. The ice and snow just broke up a few days ago on the river so evidently there is an abundance of fish close to the surface as the gulls were having a heyday gobbling them up. It's a beautiful spot which just adds to the enjoyment of a nice meal. I had giant shrimp cocktail and a lobster roll with fries. I didn't eat the humongous roll, it was a meal in itself and only a few of the fries but sure did have my own feeding frenzy on the ice cold shrimp and the lobster. The desserts looked scrumptious but I passed them up and just had the little mint that they give you when they bring the check.

Tonight is rehearsal for the talent show which is tomorrow night at the church along with the pot luck supper. I have about 12 acts signed up so I hope everyone shows up or I will have to get up there and sing and that wouldn't be a pretty sight or sound! I have lined up everything from a barber shop quartet, ladies quartet, tap dancing young gals, skits, country singer, piano solos, guitar players and a some other things. One of my singers had her wisdom teeth out this morning so I'm wondering if she will be in any condition to sing tomorrow night.... she might look like Chip and Dale with all the swelling.

I have decided to participate in the 30 Day Organizational Challenge over at Laura's the organizing junkie. This starts on April 3 and I think I will compete by entering not the Dreaded Walk In Closet but my Ultra Dreaded Sewing Room. It is a mess with different colors of fabric mixed in together, junk that needs tossing, things that don't even belong in a sewing room ended up there and I am declaring war on it! The only bad part of this is that I am going to have to disgrace myself again by posting some 'before' pictures over at her site for the world to see........to see what a slob I am in my sewing room. Now the rest of the house, except the Dreaded Walk In Closet, is pretty neat and tidy for the most part, well unless the grands have been here and then every room looks like a hurricane hit it but the sewing room gets pretty wild when I am on a sewing kick. I have taken the 'before' pictures and am just trying to get up the courage to go over there and post them. When I do I will be accountable............

I posted by biggest messes over at Randi's earlier this week. You're right that it helps motivate you to do something once the picture is posted :)
