Today we got some decent pool time...yayness! And I delved in too, and was pleasantly surprised by how warm the water was.

AND....we browsed in my most favourite of all shops...the art & craft store 'Michaels'. Such bliss, I tell ya! I could seriously blow a small fortune in there! We came away with some glossy paper, to try our hands at corn syrup paintings (doesn't that sound intriguing, we'll keep you posted on that one), and our white Tee's to make our South African World Cup shirts. Which, alas, we didn't get round to, due to the fact we were too busy watching the World Cup Kick-off Celebration Concert. It was so great to see so many SA flags flying in the stadium.

I just thought I'd post the official World cup anthem, which is sung by Shakira, and a proudly South African band called 'Freshly Ground'. It was nicer seeing it live on TV today, but I couldn't find the video on the web yet.

Tomorrow's game is South Africa vs. Mexico, so if y'all try call me in the morning, I won't answer the phone!!
Just warning you!

Michael's is my go-to store for yarn and I love their clearance aisle. I have found some awesome deals for $1-$2!

The often hand out 40% or even 50% coupons for a regular price item. It works out well for me that I usually get my yarn on clearance if I buy one skein at a time!

Yeah, I get their online coupons too, it's a wonderful store indeedy!
