Boring "What I did today" entry.

I had a terrific time last night with my sister's kids. They are always big fun and I know the night time routine for them. O rode around on her stick horse and I sang every western theme song I could think of, finally culminating with a rousing version of The William Tell Overture.
"This is SO perfect, Aunt Jeanette!" she crowded. "Sing it AGAIN!!!"
Once was enough however. I DID really get into it the first time around.

H was a cute little monkey and got into picking up the train track. Beowulf got into H. Wulfie likes all the kids but he follows H around. I love it because H really is only 5 or 6 lbs heavier than Beowulf.

I put Mighty S to work on a special art project and he really got into it. When all is ready I will be sure to post it. Teaser: Talking whales are GREAT.

We also greatly enjoyed the homemade pizza my sister had made. It has been a long time since I have had her homemade pizza and her crust really is to die for. I need to get the recipe.

I spent the night there and had to leave relatively early in the morning. (8:45.) Usually when I stay over I wind up lingering until at least the early afternoon. S was greatly disappointed but I already had a committment with Mary and Rachel.

I got back to SLC and then we headed to a karate tournament in Layton. It was a sight to behold with all these kids doing just crazy, crazy stuff. They were amazing to watch. Some of the routines with the bo staffs and swords were just jaw dropping. I really enjoyed it but the room where it was all taking place in was too small to really watch everything. It was cool though and it does have our individual heads processing possibly taking part in another tournament in March. I fully expect to have my butt kicked.

We went out for lunch and then stopped by Farmington. My mom wanted me to run an errand for her in SLC and I needed to see exactly what she wanted. (Fabric! Ha ha!) So, off to SLC where we also stopped at the art store. ( I was totally out of Bristol Board. Holy cow, I am going through this stuff fast!!!)

We got the fabric she wanted at Mormon Handicraft and then we walked around the "This is the Place' monument. I pointed out to them my ancestor "Millen Atwood" on one of the plaques. Very cool.

Rachel decided to start a snowball fight where I got properly trounced. (Definitely wearing the WRONG shoes.)

Later Mary and I went to the library as well as the satellite Night Flight comics where I picked up a copy of the highly recommended "Fables," and found out they are having an official "24 Hour Comic" event in mid April. I think I may sign up for that. I have always wanted to try Scott McCloud's infamous challenge. (The challenge: In exactly 24 hours, write and draw 24 pages of a comic book. )

Now I am back in Farmington, completely pooped out. I'll be spending the night and going to a farewell tomorrow.

I'm always AMAZED by what can be done by people at tournaments...especially the little bitty ones. The kids are astoundingly good! But, while the bladework is pretty, I'm kinda bothered by all the acrobatics and sword-flipping and such. I suppose I'm just a ninjitsu purist. ^_^

If you do a 24-hour comic, I want to see! I'd LOVE to see what you come up with. I've always wanted to try, but I'm not that great a 2d artist and, well, if I couldn't even stand up to the NaNoWriMo challenge...yeeeeah. Seeing yours would be very neat, though!
