Hurrah for a weekend!

     The annual department ice cream social was on Wednesday, and while I didn't have ice cream, just various other high-calorie treats, it was a nice getaway. Dawn corralled a bunch of us into playing Yahtzee with her, and I wasn't the only one who was a first-timer!

     A big blessing on the same day: while heading home from work, thinking over how much I like the 'Lark and Lion' second illustration I was working on, I realized it would make a fabulous 2019 single-page calendar image. That felt like a huge load lifted, because the picture I'd been reluctantly planning on this year was intimidating and I didn't think I'd have enough time or skill/resources at present to do it justice. Now I have a head start, too!

     I'm counting my blessings for where I live--got around 4-5 inches of rain over the past few days, and I didn't have to worry about flooding. It would have been a very rotten week at some of my former lodgings!

     A Friday treat from Dawn: cheesy popcorn! I was having a stressed-out morning and I really needed that. So kind!

I am impressed Dawn got to play Yahtzee. I have not play it in very long time.
Looking forward to seeing your illustration on the 2019 calendar page. How to believe it is only 3 months away. new

Your weather is getting nice cool. Have a nice weekend.

I was wondering if you knew that game. Dawn was very into it, but Nancy was the one with the crazy good luck who got Yahtzee on her first turn and then a large straight on her second turn! No point competing with her around. ;)

Yes, it's going very fast!

My weather is nice now but you are hot again. Too bad I can't mail you some 50s.
