Start the Week off with a treble and a bang.

Thanks for all of your comments in my last post. Very thought-provoking and supportive!!

My students are on Spring Break this week, so I look forward to completing some long-delayed projects. In a rare burst of inspiration, my hubby and I began to skim the drywall of our kitchen using some pink drywall goop. Maybe we can actually finish this room before June.

On St. Patrick's Day my Irish Dance group performed at a local cafe. A friend's hubby captured my favorite dance, the 3 Sea Captains. Just a couple disclaimers: (1) my dress was too big thanks to the weight loss (2) the stage was extremely bouncy, so we had to pull back a bit on the stomps and bangs. I'm the one in the blue dress on the right. Although you can't see the embroidery very well, my dress has a cladaugh theme (my favorite Irish symbol). Some smart-alecs thought it was a Florida Gators color scheme, but the dress simply reflects some of my favorite colors and symbols.

Wow... I'm impressed! That's fantastic! I could never dance like that! I'm extremely uncoordinated! Have a blessed Holy Week!

What a great performance! It is clear that you are confident and totally at ease with what you are doing. I was just watching dancing with the stars and thinking how uncoordinated I am! lol! Btw, love the background!
