What I did today...

Left work early--unexpectedly. Nothing wrong. Since job transitions on Monday, I didn't want to spend the rest of my day doing nothing--again. My work has dwindled because of the change. Got tomorrow off, and my boss said, "Go ahead. Start your weekend early." No need to tell me twice. I was out the door almost before my "Out of Office" reply was set on my e-mail. This was 12:15. Treated myself to "The Lion King" at he Moving Picture show. I snuck in my bottled water and chips. I didn't bother with the 3D version of the movie also out. I was OK with Regular D. Just me, and a mom with her daughter in the Moving Picture Show. Loved It. Even after seeing The Lion King a million dozen times, I still LOVE it. I remembered the folks I saw it with back in 1994. I thought we would be chums forever. Not so much. Have no contact with any of them. Not even on Facebook. Nonetheless, I still chuckled at Timon and Pumba, and got teary eyed at the end... ah, Hakuna Mata! So on I went to munch on bar-b-que. Then the hunt for birch bark sheets. Yea, it exists. I just don't know where, except on an actual birch tree. Which, by the way, I had to Google to find out what s birch tree looks like. Did errands. Got a Mocha Frappucino because it was 100 F degrees in Dallas today. 71st day of the year of triple digits. And finally got home at the time I woulda got home if I'd stayed at work. My co-worker, The Captain, e-mailed me at home and said I shoulda stayed cuz it was "easy money." I had to draw the line. We had no work. Sure, we would have talked, laughed, and surfed the 'net like we've done the last few days--yet enough was enough. I had to get up and get on with doing something than just waste my time. Then this pot I posted. It is a 6 inch terra cotta pot, painted with Plaid's Folk Art acrylic black for the base. Then I used that nifty natural sea sponge just bought. Sponged the colors Metallic Pure Gold and Metallic Copper all over the pot. Kinda fun. And in conclusion--I really liked what I did today!
