A list

I made a little bee mosaic for you. Can you see the whirling wings?

I did a lot of things today. See list below.


Untitled-1

Left the house at 7 am and worked all day.

Cried during the Upper School Variety Show this afternoon. And told all the seniors I loved them. I get all emotional when I see kids I’ve known since kindergarten performing on the stage. So embarrassing.

Speaking of embarrassing, a co-worker caught me dancing at school, videoed it and has threatened to post it to Facebook. George had to give him a stern warning on his FB page.

I can never remember how to spell embarrassing and have to do spell check every time. It’s two R’s and two S’s, ding dong.

I got a pedicure at a new place. The leg massage was sort of painful.

I had another argument with my husband. This makes two in less than three days. I’m certain it’s entirely his fault, too.

Began packing for vacation.

: : :

Thrilling, isn’t it?

Orange you glad you come here every day to hear this drivel? Gotta go. More stuff to get done ~


Until tomorrow, then . . .

I love, love, love the whirling wings! Awesome shots!

My, what a busy girl you've been today! I'm exhausted just reading your post, lol!

I hope you get some packing done, don't have any more arguments with the hubby and yes, I'm glad I stop by everyday!

JackDaddy said...

I'm sorry, I have to agree with your husband.

Whatever it was about :)

Country Gal said...

Love your mosaic ! WOW! you are a busy gal. Have a good day !

Hilary said...

Uh, you could send people over to watch my cat biting her nails....now THAT is exciting!!
Ha!

Karen said...

I cry every time I see a performance by kids too! Doesn't even have to be my kids!... ridiculous!! I actually pinch the skin on the underside of my wrist to try to divert the tears.

tj said...

...Yeah, I'm almost certain it's his fault too. *wink*wink*nudge*nudge*

...And tell the person who has the video of you dancing that there are those of us who will pay top dollar for it. *snort* ;o)

...Love the bee's wings, er, or is that the bee's knees? No, that's what you are, the bee's knees...hee,hee But love the photos. Period. :o)

...Blessings...

tj said...

...Ooo, and love the new header too! Pretty! :o)

Char said...

yes, i've had the leg massage hurt too. not fun. hope the vacay makes it all better.

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

What is it about seeing them perform, even kids who are not your own, that causes the weeping? I don't get it, but I do it too.

Another video of Miss Kate dancing/singing! I'd pay money to see that one. The other one from Blog Fest was priceless.

It most definitely was Husband's fault. No question. I think you should go out and tinker with the lobster buoys. Maybe some graffiti on one of them...

Ellen said...

I love the bee action photos. I can almost hear the buzzing.

Have a wonderful vacation.

Snappy Di said...

Thanks for the chuckle tonite, Kate. Enjoy your trip. No arguing while away, okay? LOL

Those whirling wings are amazing! And it sounds like you had a very busy day! We all know that husband's are to blame for everything, well except the good stuff, we can take the credit for that! ;-)

Kat :)

Deb said...

I get all misty when my daughters dancers perform...some I've known since they were little...I understand how you feel....

Lili said...

Well I for one enjoyed hearing about your flurry of activity here today, you were certainly as busy as the gorgeous whirling bees in your images! xo ~Lili

JaneK said...

do you think the arguing is b/c of the pending travelling. always makes me anxious. ironic that the thing that is supposed to be fun usually causes stress before and after... oh well; and maybe that is not the case with you 2!

the bee pics are AMAZING!

i always have to check embarrassing, too

life is short...let 'em post the dancing video! make 'em smile :)

safe travels

Caroline said...

Wow...those wings. And no, it's not embarrassing to cry (I have a hard time with spelling embarrassing too...and thankful for the red dotted line that appears underneath it so I can correct it!)

Happy packing!

Country Girl said...

JaneK, by jove, I think you've got it.

Very cool whirling wings!

Here's to hoping that your vacation puts an end to the fighting and begins the making up :)

TSannie said...

Just love bumblebees and yours are just wonderful.

Didn't you learn a long long time ago that EVERYthing is always the hubs fault???

And recharge yourself - it's vacation time!

(Your mosaics are much clearer than my first attempt. I'm doing something wrong.) :(

missing moments said...

Oh bumble bees bumble bees! Sweet!
Vacation .. yeh! Hope it is filled with adventure! We, too, are off for 2 weeks to the beach!
Look forward to your stories.

Even when I'm feeling sad, it makes me happy to come here.

Laura~peach~ said...

hate when massages hurt... love the bees... have a safe fun trip and i wanna see you dancing :)

mrs mediocrity said...

Any time anyone gets the camera out these days I have to say, I had better not see that on facebook (or The YouTube, as my mom calls it). The internet is forcing us to behave ourselves.
Love the bees, love how I CAN see the wings whirling!

Deltaville Jamie said...

The photos are great. I love bumblebees. I like how it sounds and feels saying bumblebee. I have that blogfest video of the dancing AND singing.

The Japanese Redneck said...

I luv the bumbles.

Oh come on, let him post it so we can see ya shake your booty!

beth said...

the worst leg massage i've had was after i had freshly shaved my legs right before the pedicure.....

and whaaaat. 2 fights. his fault again i'm sure :)

do you hate packing ? i really hate it....and put if off until the last minute....
xo

Daryl said...

buzzzzzzz .. adorable bumblers.. man are such fools .. you need to get earbuds so you can put one in one ear and listen to music while he thinks you are listening to him .. HA.. and I have a video of you dancing too .. (insert wicked laughter)

Carolynn said...

I love lists! *grin*

I also love bees and am determined to keep some when my dream life manifests.

I always have to spell check "occasion". It just cries out for another S, don't you think?

Ah, the pre-vacation bickering. I know it well. If it helps at all, I think it's a sign of stress. Just one more thing on your plate to plan and organize. I'll bet if the cupboard doors were closed, it would make a big difference in both your lives. Think he'll buy that...?

P.S. Where ya goin'?

Egghead said...

Oh Kate it is good to cry for people you love for it shows we are all connected. I want to see that video. Nothing better than catching a little happy dance.....it brings joy! Enjoy your vacation!!

The Weaver of Grass said...

Whirling wings are incredible.

Would like to see that video of you dancing though!

Mental P Mama said...

While you're packing, leave the windbag out! xoxo! I kid....

Mary said...

Don't worry, bee happy! :)

I have never had a pedicure because I can't stand having anybody touch my toes... So I think I would not like the leg massage either...

And I can never spell embarrassing either!
xoxo

Oliag said...

Love the bees!

Love spellcheck! I have to check calendar every time...and squirrel too:)

...and I always pack at the very last minute...I admire you early packers...Have a fun weekend and trip.

...and I am sure you were right:)
