Lori for putting on the best ever Bead Soup Blog Party! I know this was a big undertaking and Lori did a wonderful job as usual. I also want to give a big thanks to all of you who stopped by and left comments. I hope to respond to all of your comments next week. I am working on this blog post and then I am off to work in the studio to try and get some things made up for the show this weekend. I am also still working my way through the rest of the wonderful soup participants. I will get to your blogs, it is just going to be really really slowly. Life is sort of getting in the way of my passion: blogging and beading!
This is what greeted us on Sunday morning, before our show. It was sprinkling before we rolled into our site and then everyone was yelling there was a rainbow. So, I got out of the car with the camera and took some pictures. What a great way to start our show.

Mom and I had a wonderful time this year. I did have my friend Lisa, who is such an awesome girl, come and help me set up. Mom was still in her boot and I didn't want her to get hurt.
One of the volunteers was going around taking photos and she took a picture of mom and I. I usually don't like to have my photo taken, but I wanted one of us together. I think we are looking fine!!!
I don't think I have told you all that I have been exercising again. Well, I have been. I am on day 36 of keeping track of my food on MyFitnessPal.com. It is an awesome site and I highly recommend it. I don't eat any differently than I did before, but I now know how many calories I am sticking in my mouth and I am watching how much I take in.
But, this weekend is to be fun, not thinking about a decision I have to make (at least not yet).
This week is the 4th Annual Salt Fork River Festival at Sleepy Creek Winery. Mom and I have been at this art festival since Joe and Dawn started it and we LOVE IT.
This year will have over 50 artists, live music and art demos. If you are in the Danville/Oakwood area of Illinois I highly recommend stopping in. This festival is so much fun, plus there is wine and wine slushies!
I guess that is it for now. I am not sure if I will have time to blog this weekend or not. We have an hour drive to Sleepy Creek on Saturday and Sunday, so who knows. I just can't wait for this weekend. Oh, forgot to tell you mom is now out of the walking boot and into regular shoes as of last night. Mom can also now drive and I no longer have to drive her around. YEAH, for both of us. Have a great one everyone!
