04/16/2007: "Couches and fuses and spiders...OH MY!"
Friday night Rob Roys and I went to an outdoor soccer match. There were giant snow banks around the perimeter of the field, very Alaskan; I wish I'd had my camera. Our Juneau girl's varsity team beat the state champs from last year 6-0. Yee Haw!
Sat. Aaron and I shopped for a new couch. We test drove about 42 models carefully weighing the "cuddle factor" of each until we found our ideal match: The Dalton, a double recliner by LazBoy. We basically spent the entire day cuddling; it was one of the most romantic things Iíve ever done!
We also went to the Alaska Folk Festival Saturday night after which they held a big square dance! It was so fun even though I had no clue what I was doing. Yee HAW!
I didn't get any painting done over the weekend...I'm still waiting to hear back from that gallery on the possibility of a September exhibit. I am afraid it isn't going to happen and now I feel sort of embarrassed because I've already started telling people I *might* have a show there. Ooops!
Oh well, I'm still not ruling out holding a home exhibit...I'd send invites to my mailing list, have wine and snacks....and just have a big party/art viewing. If anything sold I'd get to keep 100% of the profits as opposed to 60% if I show at a gallery. I'm hoping my sweetie can help me install some tract lighting if it comes to that.
He's great with that kind of thing...for example, on Friday my car wouldn't start which was very stressful as it's 13 years old and could give up the ghost at any moment. But Aaron figured out it was only a burnt out ignition fuse, a 4 dollar fix! Yee HAW!
Then last night there was a scary spider in the hallway and moments later, another sizeable one in the bedroom. Aaron was able to successfully relocate both of them to the outdoors for me. At the risk of jeopardizing my feminist cred... there are times it's absolutely fantastic having a big strong man around! Does that make me lame?
