I started to do a regular cleaning of the kitchen today, but once I got into it, a burr under my saddle turned it into a marathon-type deep cleaning. I'm not totally finished, but close, and I love it when I do this kind of cleaning! I'll finish it up on Sunday. I can't do it tomorrow, because .... I gotta go to the Cowboy Symposium in Ruidoso.
The Symposium is one of, if not THE, biggest of it's kind. I don't know if this link will work for non-members of F*cebook, but I hope it does: http://www.facebook.com/friends/?ref=tn#/note.php?note_id=149507173757&id=71496410164&ref=mf. Several of my friends are showing their art at the symposium, and they ended up with a couple extra passes, so they gave one to me. Yay! That saves me having to put out $25 or so. I'm very into anything that keeps money from leaving my proximity!
This is the third year I've lived here, and yet I've never gone. Everyone I've talked to says it is well worth it. The art vendors, food vendors, exhibits of all kinds should keep me busy for quite a while. I haven't checked the schedule, but I'm hoping to see the Horse Whisperer. I'd rather see him than Larry Gatlin or Mel Tellis. I've heard the cowboy cook off is excellent. Anyway, I'm off for the fun for the day.
I wish I had someone to go with me, but most of my friends are exhibiting. That's OK. There were times in the past that I wouldn't have ventured to something like that alone, but this is the new me. It doesn't really bother me at all to do it now. That's one of the great things I've learned about me while living on my own. I like the confidence I've grown. It suits me.
I'm off to bed. Gotta get some rest. You never know what .... or who .... I might run into there, and I must look my best, right? ;-)
