Today was Petal Fairy day - I managed to give her a little bit of her wings, finish her back and do a little bit of her flower skirt (including a little bit of frogging.... seems to have been my weekend for that!). I don't think the #4 braid in her wings is showing up much in the photo though. I am really enjoying her, and figure I will pick her up more often now that she is really beginning to take shape.
(photo is from nascar.com)... Here is Ryan Newman on the pole in Atlanta today - take a good look(yes, I know you can barely see that little #12 car at the front in this pic...), as that is the last time he saw the front row today. Ryan was really struggling with his car today, spending the majority of this long race a lap down. But, Ryan did manage to get back on the lead lap late in the race, he plugged away and did not give in to his too tight car, and came in 14th (which, apparently, is his average finish in Atlanta). But there is good news! Ryan is now sixth in points!!!!!! Steady progress is being made! But when will Ryan win a race? Will it be soon? I hope so..... His team just really needs to figure out how to get from qualifying set up to racing set up...um, quicker :-)
Spring is here! The snow that the forecasters threatened us with for over a week now did not come. South of us (Boston, the Connecticut area and even western Massachusetts) may see some overnight, but not up here. Yay! Also, they are now thinking the Wednesday storm is also going to be south of us. We were happily in the 50's all day today! Too soon to get excited, but this is nice!
This weekend was just way too short.... sigh.
