It started beningley enough-a new spin place opened in my neighborhood that I wanted to try.  A Groupon showed up in my inbox so I bought one for me and one for my neighbor.  We quickly became addicted to Flywheel.  I really miss those workouts-I have tried some other spin classes in Dallas but have not found anything that I like as much.  Although I am addicted to Flywheel that is not really the addiction problem.  The problem is Groupon.  It got so bad this summer, I was buying one every day for my neighbor and me.  Manicures, pedicures, yoga classes (both in Atlanta and Dallas),facials, microdermabrasion, Keratin treatments for K and Liza and on and on.  Most have worked out well.  There were the chimney sweep guys who did not show up but Groupon gave me a credit.  And the exercise place that I thought was barre classes that turned out to be pole dancing.  Groupon gave me a refund for that one also.  Most recently I have been buying Groupons for things to do on the weekend with K.  I have bought horseback riding, trips to wild animals parks and endangered animal sanctuaries.  This past weekend we went to a wild animal park.  They had a lot of interesting animals and the employees were so knowledgable and nice.  We had a great time in spite of the heat.  And I am going to resist Groupons for a while until I have used all of the ones I have.  Managing these Groupons is like a job.

Clay Day

A bowl for Bert, a vase for K and a goblet for me. As always I am amazed at K's focus and concentration.

Farmer's Market

We started our weekend with a trip to the farmer's market.  Check out all of the beautiful peppers.  We really are in Texas!   And it has been hotter than heck!  The temperature had dropped 40 degrees this morning and there was a wonderful breeze.  Heaven!

12 Hours and a lot of meowing

Poor Bert hated the car ride to Dallas.  He meowed most of the way and most of his first night here.  He is settling down today.  Luna is happy as can be and loves that we walk to school.
