My weekend in Boone

We had a great, but very busy weekend in Boone.
We went to our old favorite bar on Friday night, saw some old friends and listened to Rockabilly music.

Saturday, we went to a reunion for the Boone Music scene. It was a twenty year reunion for Kevin and his old band, Dionysian Tapestry.
Here they are in 1986:

and here they are now:

We had a great time!

In the inbetween I visited with my best friend and got to see the Pocket Monkey (Sugar Glider) she was babysitting, and visit with Kevin's Mom and my Brother.

sleep=medication, art and organizing=therapy

Last night I made the mistake of going to bed at 8pm and woke up at 3am unable to go back to sleep. My mind was racing, so I found a few activities to keep myself busy and not focus on all the thoughts swimming around in my head. First, i cleaned out my desk and organized my bills and office supplies. I find it strange that such things relax me, but they do. My desk is old with claw feet and was a gift from my grandmother. I polished the wood and it looking so nice really made me feel good. I then cleared of all my cork boards that fill the walls around my desk. These quickly get covered in art and design projects and I thought the empty space might inspire me to make more art, which is always a good thing.

I still wasn't tired so I decided to get crafty. I bought Phaedra some plain t-shirts and I decided to decorate them. Here is the shirt I made her:

I also made a shirt for my paramore, because he was so good to me last night and cooked dinner and gave Phaedra her bath so I could relax from my hard day. Here it is:

Spike Jonze to direct "Where the Wild Things Are" by Maurice Sendak. Hmmmm... I feel some programming ideas coming on...

Ren Faire

Greeted by the Green Man

Phaedra's Favorite Part
She also liked the Knight Fights. She cheered and "wanted to see blood". She also liked heckling the jousting knights. She was amazed by a pirate who pulled a coin out from behind her ear. As a souvenir she got a mermaid and fairy doll, and a bag of wish jewels.

Fantasy Parade

As my souvenir, I got a crown, a leather mask, and horns and stripe pirate thigh high socks. We ate yummy fair food, cheesecake on a stick, strawberries cover in chocolate on a stick, you get the idea...
