Saturday

I love Saturdays, especially the Saturdays I don't have to work. Today was one of those marvelous days. I slept in until 10:30, watched part of a BBC movie (North and South) while eating cereal, and then ran to Wal-mart where I purchased a canvas and acrylic paint with which I painted the picture below. Painting and basketball took up the majority of my afternoon (oh yeah, I watched episode 2 of North and South as well) and this evening Mom, Bob, and I went random shopping (random shopping is where you are looking for nothing in particular but are in the mood for an adventure. At least that's what I was in it for). We had ice cream at Culver's and I guess Bob and I were getting kinda giggly because Mom asked the girl at the drive-through if she could purchase a baby-sitter as well. Imagine! I finally bought a chicken I have been wanting for a while, a chicken that I did not buy the three previous times I have been in Pier 1. It's really a beautiful chicken. Her name is Joyce but I call her Bertie. Anyway, Bob bought two orange pool noodles which we cut in half and surprised the boys with an attack. An outside fenced match ensued which later turned in a small water fight. Only Billy got wet (hehe). And finally, this evening Bob, Jimmy, Billy, and I had a Guess Who tournament in which I got both 1st and 2nd place! What a beautiful day.

Joyce and "Just Imagine."

Is the artwork titled "Just Imagine" because we have to imagine what is in the white box? If not, please tell me what it is doing there under the tree. Bertie is very attractive.
