Interview ... and other stuff
Sunday night. Magical in-between time. Catch up on laundry, watch a movie, read a magazine. Lay on the sofa stuffed with advil with my foot on a pillow. Why, you ask?
Friday night was Wings & Beer night for Jon and I. We can't go more than two weeks without our fix. The best wings outside of Buffalo just happen to be at our local pub which also serves up a great selection of microbrew beer. What could be better? Loaded up with carbs and fat seems a good way to start a weekend.
At our favorite destination, I hop out of the car enthusiastically (yay!) and step right onto an icey bit of pavement with my ankle and foot out of alignment. Lying in a snowbank yelling "Ow" (only a bit more colorfully) is not the way to start a weekend. Needless to say, when I regained my senses and Jon pulled me to my foot, I hobbled directly into the pub, ordered a beer (wheat beer + strawberry = yummy) and requested one ice pack. No need for advil, as I'd been hitting that bottle pretty hard (snow+53 years old=hurtin' back and shoulders). It was an Olympic event! Speed Skating + Downhill = Diana at Union Jack's in a big dirty pile o'snow. Is that a di-athalon?
So it was very nice today to hear from Julie Murray that she had posted up an interview with yours truly, the Olympian. You can find it here. Many thanks to Julie for asking me some good questions! I enjoyed answering them. Sarah Anderson of The Art of Moodling has some pics posted here from a playdate with friends. They used Journal Spilling as a jumping off point and they sure jumped off. What fun. I get a huge kick from seeing how much fun people are having with JS, it just makes me smile inside and out. Many thanks to these two talented artists. I enjoy their work and blogs and am honored.
