Not A Lot To Say, Really ....

It's been a quiet couple of days in the world of Meow. Monday I spent much of the day on the computer ... blogging, of course (but not posting ... naughty, naughty !!) ... but also helping out a friend ... Hello Judith, if you are reading !!! I have temporarily volunteered to be Newsletter Editor for Multiple Mirths, which is a monthly newlsetter for the Australian Multiple Birth Association - Victorian branch. I was asked to help out, and me being the computer nerd I am, and I love to type, said Yes - I'll do it. It is a lot of fun, and doesn't really take too much time ... it can be a bit fiddly, though, as I'm not involved in the committee and stuff, so I have to ask lots of questions !!

Anyway, apart from that, I have done .... washing, washing and more washing !! For a household of only 3 people, we sure do generate a lot of washing. And me being me, I hate folding and putting it away, so it piles up. Then, when I run out of baskets, and space, it takes me ages to fold it all. Guess what I'm doing today !!!!

Last night I went to my painting class again. Have a look what I did ....

This is No. 2 of a set of six cat coasters I am making. As I said last week, it is still a work in progress ... it will eventually have some sort of border (I'm thinking a plain gold line, but not sure yet).

My painting class is a lot of fun. There are only a few ladies there, but we have a ball. Lots of gas-bagging goes on !! I sometimes think we talk more than we paint. I have been going for about 2 1/2 years now, and have painted all sorts of stuff. As I mentioned, I may put a link on this blog to another one with my craft stuff ... stay tuned !!

Not much else has been happening in my world ... aren't I boring !!

I am looking forward to my next Web Design lesson coming out today ... I have completed 2 lessons already. It is great fun, and really interesting. Can't wait to get into some more in-depth stuff. I'm gonna use what I learn to tweak my blog and make it look more interesting. Maybe even make a new template for myself ... hope I'm not being too ambitious !!

Anyway, better go have some breakfast, and get Chicky off to school. Hope everyone has a great day.

Take care,

anyone who can do all of the above and run such a fun blog is far from boring!
Thanks for sharing~

Thanks, Tab. Seems really weird, I don't work (technically), but I always seem to fill in my time with lots of stuff. Unfortunately, the housework gets neglected (sadly, that doesn't just go away ... it stays and waits !!). Never mind, a little dust never hurts anyone. Have a great week, take care, Meow

Hmm, a web desiging class might be just what I need. I have also thought about getting a gathering together of bloggers, if there is a way to find some in my neighborhood. Of course, all this will have to wait until I get home from traveling in May!

Now it is after 4PM here in Yuma and I got so involved in setting up Blogrolling on my blog that I forgot all about lunch. Maybe I'll just go out and combine lunch & dinner at a restaurant.

Meow said...

Hi Dick, the web design course is on-line, so it doesn't matter where you are to do it !! Enjoy your lu-inner (lunch/dinner!), and have a great evening. My day is just beginning ... it is 10.23am here at the moment. Take care, Meow

Meow that coaster was so cute. It kind of looks similar to my parents cat Tofflee who has the same kind of markings. I love anything cat related :).

Oh and isn't laundry a pain in the arse lol? One of my least favourite jobs is hanging it up and taking it off the racks when it's dry lol!


Meow said...

Clare, thank you. I think the other 4 coasters will be ... a tabby (mine), a white fluffy cat, a black & white cat, and a grey (Russian Blue type). Hope they all turn out. I am quite happy with the first two.
Laundry ... YUK !!! I still haven't folded all mine ... it's been 4 hours since I said I would !!
Take care, Meow

You have a busy life it seems - Far from boring :-)

The painting is quite nice ! - Looking forward to seeing the new tweaked blog ;-)


Michelle said...

I like the first coaster the best :)

Meow said...

True Blue Guy ... thanks. I guess I don't really have time to be bored, so maybe my life is not too boring !!! The tweaked blog is still a while away, but it will happen eventually !!

Michelle ... so do I !!

Take care, everyone, Meow
