So we turned our furnace on this afternoon, feels like a pretty dumb thing to do on September 15th. I guess that's what happens when you live in the Iowa arctic belt.
We froze our derierres off at a bmx competition today, but when it's the first ever for the youngest born----so we were there. For you poor uneducated souls, bmx means biking. It was held at the Spirit Lake YMCA which has a brand new bike park. Said youngest born won both competitions for the high school aged bracket, best individual trick, and best street run, which is a misnomer I think because it's all done on ramps and half pipes and stuff like that, the street is just how you get your car to the parking lot :) Grand prize (s) ---gift certificates to the local bike shop, yeah, that would also be the place of his employ. When they find out Monday that he's the one that won, they're probably going to have to thump him :)
And also I have a painting for you. It's title is a stretch, but think upon it and it will make sense hopefully! At any rate, "Pie And Coffee" 20 x 24 inches, acrylic painting on canvas. I will get it to my website http://karencooperpaintings.com/ (paypal available there) as soon as possible. Thanks for looking!
