My uncle has a place just south of Dallas, and that's where we stayed on the way to Austin.  Clara got to meet a lot of critters there, including Belgian horses.  I had to step away, because they thought I was giving them a snack.  Shocked


The scenery there is so different than what we have in Missouri.  Definitely no cacti or palm trees here!


She wanted to go on a ride along but settled for just taking her picture with this officer (she's up by the light bar).

Whatthepuck, I'm so sorry to hear about your kitty.  Saying goodbye to a family member is just the worst.  Sad

We have been having adventures (along with a few misadventures), but I have been so lax about posting.  I'm sorry, PFD!

Here's Clara under the arch.  She is lucky that she's young and selfies taken under the chin aren't a bad thing.


The Mississippi was still up, so Clara couldn't get on the cobblestones at the river ( I did find some for her on higher ground later).  She's on the riverfront with the Eads Bridge behind her.


Does anyone else remember these?  I used to get these as a kid and noticed they were available again.  So bad yet so good!


On the way to Austin we passed through Dallas.

Clara and I are still knocking about!  We have been to downtown St. Louis and last week we were in Texas.  I will post a few photos in the next couple of days.

I had an interview on tuesday, got to sign the contract on wednesday and had my first day at work today!
Congratulations on your new job!!!  Whatcha doing? (I hope it's OK to ask)
Thanks, I'll be helping people with their housekeeping (mainly cleaning, washing, some cooking if needed). Most of the clients are elderly people or people with disabilities.
Noble work, indeed!  Before my father in law passed he had someone come in a few days a week and help with light household chores and laundry.  It was such a big help!

I met her in Austin this past week at ABDC!  I was so busy getting skirts made at the last minute I didn't get to check in here.  Too bad, or she could have made two LV scrapbooks this round.  Grin

OMG Flamethrower day should happen everywhere!

When we turned on our A/C this year I heard a strange noise in the dining room.  Our unit is in the attic, and it turns out that one of the pipes had a hole in it.  The noise I heard was water dripping through the fixture and in this spot.  We were left with this lovely stain and plaster repair to be done.


My friend Marcella wanted to go to Denny's for her birthday, so we met her and two other neighborhood ladies for lunch.


I needed some more hangers and tags for my show in Austin next week (side note:  anyone here from Austin?).  Clara modeled at Store Supply Warehouse while I shopped.


My friend Catharine does large scale outdoor mosaics, and she's hired me to help her with a few of them.  This project was done a few years ago - three fountains for an upscale outlet mall.  Here is the sea-themed fountain.  I was bummed that it wasn't actually running.

Trying again!


I have a big event in a few weeks, and I needed to get some more skirts made.  Clara was a big help by holding the pattern in place.  Nothing but the finest homemade newspaper patterns for me!  Cheesy


Here's Clara in front of the lone remaining poppy and some iris.  There were several of these when me moved here and I just loved them.  One day I came home from work, and my husband proudly told me he had gotten rid of the fuzzy dandelions.  Yep, my poppies.  That was the last time he did any volunteer gardening.  I couldn't really even be mad because he felt so bad about it.

My cousin vends horror movie shirts, and I went with him down to Dallas for Texas Frightmare.  I had such a good time, even though horror really isn't my thing.  We went to my mom's and made her dinner yesterday for Mother's Day, but I was a dunce and forgot pictures.

Clara manning the booth


She slipped away and was getting ready to get a tattoo, but I found her in time to stop it.  Luckily Shaun of Halloween Tattoos is a really nice guy and understood.


I got Clara's picture with a few of the less gory cosplayers.  Here she's with a gender swapped Deadpool.

I've never been for Dapper Days, so even though I'm glad Aurora got to experience it I'm a little jealous!

Last week we had lunch in Belleville, IL.  Afterwards I showed Clara the Square that they close each year for a big art fair.  She said that PFD would like this pic even though it wasn't a true clock tower.


This past weekend Clara helped me vend for the first time.  She was a big help to me and the other vendors.  She modeled my costumes,


helped customers choose Eye Kandy colors,


and pounded out some rhythms on Magda's drum.


She even found time to hang out with the featured instructors, Aziz and Amaya.


We are experiencing record flood levels, and several roads are closed - even interstates!  The vertical bits I've underlined are new construction to raise 141 (the road currently underwater) so that it passes over the interstate.  Too bad it isn't finished yet!  This stretch of 44 is also closed and likely won't reopen until next week.


Tomorrow we're headed to Dallas to help my cousin vend at a horror convention.  I will make sure Clara has a safe place in case she gets frightened!

Aurora is having such wonderful adventures!  Actually, I enjoy looking at all the LV pictures whether they are mine or not.  I had no idea they had SLVs (space little visitors).  My husband enjoys space exploration so I was sure to share the video with him.

Things have been pretty quiet around here.  There aren't any little ones in the family so no egg hunts, but we did stuff ourselves silly on Easter.


The Blues had me worried there at the end, but they managed to win the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.  Clara might have been conflicted rooting for a team other than the Lightning, but she didn't mention it.  Way to assimilate!


Thursday my mosaic group had our monthly meeting.  They are held at Yucandu, an interactive art studio for all ages.

I'm finding that Clara is quite social and easily makes friends.  While I met my friend for lunch at a Mexican restaurant she found someone to hang out with, too.


I sew as a fill in at Mother Earth Pillows and took Clara with me yesterday.  Not only did she help choose fabric and sew, but she played with the Cuddle Pals.

Clara is here!  She jumped right in to help; she's currently in the kitchen with DH grating Swiss cheese for the freezer.  No small feat considering the cheese is almost as big as she is!
