Marachas Project

Phoenix had been asking to make homemade marachas for the past week so we finally gathered up all of the necessary items and made them.

This is a Nick Jr. project from there website that I substituted 1/2 PVC instead of wooden dowels which saved me a few bucks and I still have six feet of PVC to use elsewhere.

Both Phoenix and Zion did their own painting.

Visit from An Old Friend

My friend Allison (in the light blue shirt) came for a visit from Eureka, California from the 13-17 of July. We had not seen each other since 2002. We had a great time while she was here. We mostly spent time catching up, but we also went shopping at the outlet mall in San Marcos, went tubing on the San Marcos and got to eat at my old haunt, Herbert's. Allison also went to see Splice with me (Tara does not like scarry movies). On Alli's last night a mutual friend of ours, Lesley (in black) came over for dinner with her fiancee, Joe.

Job Search (30 Days)

Started looking for work in earnest at the beginning of June.....still no bites. Am turning in three to four resumes a day, but still optimistic. Never been out of work for more than a few weeks in my life, but I guess I can't same that I am unemployed due to have job at Texas State. Keeping my fingers crossed. At least running four days a week is keeping my spirits up.
