Last night Mom and I headed into town for another paint party! Last time I went, Sydney and her boyfriend accompanied me, so naturally I looked forward to spending the evening with Mom sipping on some Malbec and exercising all of those (ok the few) creative juices I have.
The night ended up being a great success. Thankfully, the rain and messy weather held off until we made it back home. I highly recommend going, at least once, to one of these studios. I have only participated in paint parties at Pinot’s Palette, but I’m sure they are all the same fun.
Once I dropped Mom off at her house and got back to mine, I was sure I was going to hit the bed pretty hard and have a wonderful sleep. But thanks to someone on Facebook raving about a CMA performance, I felt the need to turn the TV on and fast-forward my way through the award show. And actually, for the first time in a while, I found it mostly entertaining. Some of the humor was a bit forced and cliché but a handful of the performances were worthy of a rewind and re-watch.
So I thought I would share my some of my favorites:
The video from the CMAs I found was terrible, but this will do.
Ok even though this one isn’t really a performance, I thought it was noteworthy!
These performances caused a little feeling inside. And naturally that led me to staying awake until much past midnight. So this morning was less than fun. Not to mention the crazy dreams I had due to the early morning rain. Weird morning.
And now, I’m posting this in part because I miss posting ,and because exiting my parking garage will be a hassle this evening. Just before 4 PM today, someone thought it would be a good idea to leave a pipe bomb on a VIA bus, so the street outside of my building was shutdown by police until it was detonated and while they investigated. Thankfully, no one was injured. Crazy day.
