A true Mansfielder, -ite, -idian, -ee

I don't know exactly what the term is, but I truly am a part of Mansfield now. Since I'm on vacation this week, I've made it to the Library and got my library card, and to the Activity Center for my MAC card.

I looked through the activity catalog, hoping for an evening art class, but didn't see anything listed in that timeframe. They have one on a weekday morning, as part of the senior activities, but I'm not quite there yet. Give me another one year, six months, and two weeks, and I might be able to fit it in.

My vacation plans changed a bit, thanks to Hurricane Ike. I had planned to go to Colorado with John and Bonnie to meet up with Nolene and Joe and Carl and Billie, but the weather forecast was not good for our travel days. We canceled our reservations, and passed on the trip. It would have been nice to go, but I've enjoyed being here at home. I've had several things needing my attention, and have been able to get a few items crossed off my list.

And it's not all work and no play. Going to lunch with Bonnie tomorrow, and probably into Fort Worth on Thursday to see an art exhibit, then I'm watching Rhett and Ashlynn on Friday, and back to Fort Worth on Saturday for a quilt show.

That's it for now. I'm thinking I might fix spaghetti for supper...

Never! Attention everyone: Elizabeth joined me for lunch both Monday and Tuesday! As I told Elizabeth, it's funny that I don't like taking my lunch to work, but it was really nice being able to have my little tuna sandwich without having to get out and go somewhere. And I had good company as well. :)
