The Cure, the pugs, the finds

Last night Bob and I had the pleasure of going to see The Cure...the last time I saw them was in the late 80's and last night's show was every bit as good if not better. I hate to say I went in with low expectations, but I just didn't know what to expect after all of these years...it was beautiful, energetic and inspiring...despite repeatedly telling the audience he was having problems with his voice, Robert' was spot on and they performed for 3 hours with 3 encores...upon leaving the stage for the final time Robert graciously took several bows accross the stage and seemed geniunely appreciative. My only complaint is $40 for a t-shirt...ack! Obviously I went home empty handed, but with a mind full of wondeful memories.

Let's see, other random things happening around our house...we did a little decorating outside yesterday and found this cool fountain at Target...it is so sooooothing to sit outside and listen to it while reading



This morning we went ot an estate sale down the block and I spent all of $2 on these...



and this, I figure I can store stuff in it in my scrap-room...



Mugsy and Pixie are happy we have been home all weekend, maybe I can get them to clean up after themselves while I am straightening up this afternoon :)






Oh yeah, a couple of LOs to share from this week...the new Category Stories challenge is up and this time it was my turn to pick so I chose my favorite topic candy!!



One I did just for fun



Ooooh, and speaking of fun check this out!

So jealous that you got to see The Cure. I think the last time I saw them was '91? I would have been a little wary going to see them after all these years too, so I'm glad to hear you had a great time! Love those LO's, and congrats on the guest DT spot!

I saw The Cure in college with a friend of mine, it was a good show. Their wonderful musicians. Glad you had a good time!

Congratulations on your guest appearance, Martha! That's great.

Glad to hear the Cure is still good after all these years! I think it was the early 90's when I saw them last.

Congrats on the guest appearance!!
