Add to that preparation for my craft groups, the big Hallowe'en party, and International Games Day @ the library on November 3rd, and I don't have much time to do anything right now! The blog is one of my huge priorities, but the youth programs take precedence right now. (We just celebrated our seventh anniversary of Games Night! Wow! Four of the first eight kids still attend, and three are in their twenties!)
The picture above is Olivia's henna tattoo she did earlier this week while helping teach the class. The strange purple creature is my half-pony half-monkey monster from last year's Hallowe'en costume. I was an evil genius from the song Skullcrusher Mountain by Jonathan Coulton. (Click here for an unofficial video!)
The good news is that I'm feeling better. I'm getting over a nasty cold, but the herniated disks in my back only give me trouble when I don't get to my workout or do something stupid like bend down without using my legs.
I'm hoping to finish up the eye cream recipe later this week, then more Newbie Tuesday! I'm also working on responding to your comments and e-mails!
If you want to know more about International Games Day @ the library, click here. We're the library in Yarrow (British Columbia). And we're sponsoring the Speers library in Saskatchewan! (My best friend's mom is the librarian there. It's a town of 96 people! Awesome!) If you're in the Fraser Valley, come check us out from 11 to 6 Saturday, November 3rd at the Yarrow library! We've rented the gym, and we hope to see everyone - not just teens! - at the library. We're challenging the parents to an adult Rock Band competition!
