the best birthday ever...and stuff...

it's been a busy week!
friday was my birthday. i do not even want to think about how old i am...

the husband took the day off and after weeks of telling me not to make plans for that day, i was on my way to the "mystery place".
he didn't tell me where we were going until we got there.

i was delighted to pull up in front of the barnes foundation! :D
i finally got there!
if you don't know about the barnes foundation, you should!
it's a fabulous art collection, and a scandalous story!
it's going to be moved to the city soon, and it shouldn't be :(
so i have been wanting to go before it did.
it should be seen where it is, and how it is.

there is also a movie about it:

it's really good, actually. but also very sad :(

when we got home, the husband & the son had a present for me.

a new saw!!!

i'm back in bizness, lads!

we also went to my favourite mexican restaurant on the planet :)

it was a great day!

"mixed signals"

finally!!! i had to use a regular ol' miter saw and some elbow, but i got it done!
this one is called "mixed signals"

"mixed signals"

i don't know about these photos, and if you can see or not, but that's a bee in the

the text is from an old spelling/reader book. one is about how busy and hard working a bee is, and the other one says they are dumb animals. which is it???
i'm going to vote for the busy/hardworking one, cause i happen to like bees.

i was also thinking about things other people might say to us.
some people seem to always point out negative things, others positive.
but when they are both coming at you, it can make you question yourself.

here's a couple more photos from different angles.

technical difficulties.

i have some things i want to work on, but my saw is wonky :(
hopefully it will be fixed tomorrow.
or i will borrow a friend's.
everything will be a little bit smaller than planned though, since all the wood bits are now weirdly cut :P
i hope i have something new to show you soon :D
i spent all day scanning stuffs!
