I've always thought it would be fun to learn how to shoot arrows with some sort of precision. So, when I saw the course for adults that would only take a one day commitment, I was all for it especially since it only took a one-day time frame.
This class will teach us all the basics. It's a seven hour course. And after this one day I should know whether or not I want to sign up for an 8 week course.
We spent the weekend in beautiful San Diego. It was a weekend filled with bike riding, running and football...oh yeah, and food, and lots of it.
We had a great time watching the SeaHawks play against the Chargers. Unfortunately the Hawks were defeated but it was great watching the skydivers land on the field and to see the celebration of the 200 anniversary of our Star Spangled Banner.
Then you melt the white chocolate and add the food coloring. Then you fill the molds with the melted chocolate. Place the molds in the fridge and let the chocolate harden. Then you unmold the chocolates and trim the excess.
It's super simple to make candy.
I put these ones on the top of cupcakes.
Next time I use different colors of chocolate but this was for a baby girl's shower.
I can't believe it. My three-day weekend has come and gone...so quickly I don't know what happened. I had so many plans, intentions and goals. But they slipped away like sand through my hands, at the beach (which is one place I wanted to visit this weekend...but didn't make it).
We spent the evenings in the park watching performances of Shakespeare plays. These talented troupes performed As You Like It and Star Wars. Yes, you heard me right. Star Wars.
And C3P0 and R2D2 were wonderful. If you are curious about any other characters in the Star Wars episodes, you might want to check out Wookieepedia ;D
Of course this was a spoof of the iconic Sci-Fi production but when you take Star Wars and add Shakespearean Iambic pentameter, it really becomes a blast. And, these actors did a tremendous job. But what was especially wonderful is that they did it more for the love of the art of acting than for the pay, although there were little green buckets placed strategically around the perimeter of the performance, for any audience members who just so happened to want to drop a $5, $10 or $20 into the pot. And it was such a wonderful time that I'm sure more than a few did just that....at least I hope so.
We started out early in the day by laying out a blanket and bringing a little food and a few drinks to help us make it through the late night hours of watching the play.
And it was more than a little crowded by the time the play began.
So we saw two plays and another spoof on Downton Abbey at a comedy club.
So, I guess that explains how my nights were whittled away. But W.O.W. how time flies. . .
How 'bout you? Did you have a wonderful holiday weekend?
