WOYWW #253 ~~ Slow going here...and OKC

I almost forgot it's Wednesday...that time of week where I share my desk with all my fellow crafty peeps. So, this post will definitely be late for all you folks across the pond, but a few hours to spare here on the East Coast. :-) Head over to Julia's Stamping Ground to see what the fuss is about. 

I've been away...spent two weeks in Oklahoma City for work. Returned home and had a weird head pain with pressure in the back of neck into head. Went to urgent care and even ER for a CT scan. Been given different meds. so we'll see what happens. Something to do with allergies and sinuses supposedly. 

Anyway, here's my desk...

... kind of a bird's eye view. Been working on Easter cards. A few more to go. Today I had to take a nap midway through (pain meds). I also put out a few items I bought while in OKC. I stopped at a craft store on a cold, rainy day. Bought some stamps, paints, new TH toys. Here's a closer look...

While there, I had the chance to meet up with Vickie from Okienurse's Paper and Ink Therapy and her daughter Heather. We went to the Melting Pot in downtown OKC and had a nice evening chatting. 

So although I was there for "work" I tried to visit some of the sites. Here's some of them...

Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum
beautiful memorial and the museum is a must!

Museum of Art
They had an Ansel Adams and Dave Chihuly exibit. Lots of great glass art by Chihuly. 

lots of glass inside a canoe

  45th Infantry Museum

Lake Hefner
went walking over the weekend. Nice small lake with walking paths.  

Oklahoma City Barons
second to last night went to a free hockey game. The home team won in a shootout.  

That's it for me...hopefully I'll be getting on here a bit more often. And visiting more often. Lots to catch up on and with spring here and outside areas needing attention...well, lots to do. :-)
