Weekend Projects

What in the world does WoOT mean? That was my question when I left you on Friday. Based on everyone’s comments, WoOT is the verbal equivalent of a celebratory fist punched in the air, as in totally rad, far out, cool, hooray, and so on.

Kristie of Fresh on Fridays blog is the winner of my November giveaway. For once I actually know a winner’s address, so I will get your package to you this week, Kristie.

Thank you everyone for playing along, it was fun discovering new names visiting my blog. Stay tuned for another giveaway in December.

A change to colder weather in Tucson has made my body unhappy and everything I’m doing seems to be in slow motion. I even slept late this morning, very odd for me.

I finished a scrapbook Friday, attended my craft group’s monthly meeting Saturday, and worked on a sewing project for Ginny at iSew Blog yesterday. Ginny’s project is super easy, but my arthritic hands and a really bad headache remind me Super Junie Moon is but a figment of my imagination.

The scrapbook is a Christmas gift for my niece Rachel who turned 16 over the summer. Fair warning, people, she’s out there somewhere on the road having now undergone the requisite driver’s license rite of passage.

My sister Carolyn arranged a luncheon for Rachel and her girlfriends at Wrightsville Beach (NC). I bet money the girls used WoOT or its equivalent a lot that day.

The culmination of Rachel’s celebrations was a dinner dance for all her classmates. Many of the photos Carolyn sent me feature Rachel and her friends in these very strange poses. What’s with that? Never mind, WoOT was enough for me.

Very cool scrapbook Junie Moon! I don't get those poses either -- I'm always asking my kids about them. I can't wait until that fad passes and then the kids just look back and wonder what in the heck they were contorting about!

I'm glad you explained what WoOT means. I had no idea either. As for those strange poses by your niece and her friends, I think the poses originated from gangs. But not to worry, now ALL the kids are doing even though they aren't in gangs. Drives me mad. Whenever my daughter or her friends try to do it in pictures, I tell them to knock it off unless they're in the Crips or the Bloods instead of being the little suburban 'tweens that they really are...

Loved all your nieces crazy photos too.

Can I get a Woot! Woot! ;)
