Saturday Satisfactions

Saturday, January 26th, 2008

It has been a pretty darn good day for me. I have been sitting on my hands for a couple of weeks as I endured the behavior of our former President and his wife. Which one is running or are they a team. Anyway, I digress. I think their political tactics are reprehensible. I hope I don’t have to hold my nose and vote for her in November.

However, today, in South Carolina, perhaps something magical is on the move again. Obama won big. I mean, it was a rout. I couldn’t have been happier, unless the Clintons had come in third. Now that would have been seriously good. Tomorrow, Caroline Kennedy is endorsing Obama. That is good news. A big time New York Democratic woman is endorsing Obama.

This morning, Mr C and I ventured out in the freezing rain and went to the coliseum to check out the home show. It was pretty much a bust. So then we went to George Moreland to check out bathroom furnishings as we are planning a major master bathroom renovation. I discovered the Villeroy and Boch brand. Ooo la la. Here are a couple of examples of some cool vanities.



I wasted the afternoon doing some errands. I didn’t go for a walk because it has been very rainy. We enjoyed watching the SC returns come in. I made roast pork loin, roasted veggies and spinach salad for dinner. I worked on my sketch book for the design class, pasting my compositions in and labeling them. I was thrilled with the critique that Liz gave my work. I am trying very hard to be the teacher’s pet.

We watched a movie that Terry recommended. I think she loved it so much that she purchased the dvd. It is Once, a sort of musical set in Dublin. Mr C was a little leery, but we both loved it.

Then!!, I got to watch the ice skating nationals for women. This is another weird love of mine. There are some really wonderful young skaters.

So, it was all in all, a very satisfying Saturday. The only think that would have made it better would have been some M & M time.

P.S: did you know that Steph and Maria are doing a year of evenings at 3191? Click on the link in my sidebar to see their wonderful photos of their evenings.
