5 thing Friday - Tango, home sweet home, Gus, bar plans, schedule changes

Our high school band did an AWESOME job at UIL on Tuesday night, earning Division I and qualifying for Area competition on Saturday!  Woo to the hoo, let's Tango!
 Such a great show - I always plan on recording it, then I get mesmerized...
 Plants in my mother's kitchen window.  I'm sure she is thrilled to be back home, even with her broken arm.  There's nothing like the serenity and comfort of your own home.
I'm sure Gus feels the same.  On Wednesday, he patiently waited for her to get dressed to go to lunch, knowing he would get a peanut butter busy bone.  
He is not the least bit spoiled...
On the way home from Brenham I stopped at Saddlehorn Winery again and enjoyed a glass of cabernet and wide open spaces.
 And I spied this on the patio - a "bar" made of wine barrels and decking planks.  And I was thinking, "couldn't we do that out in Burnet?  We could use cedar planks...hmm...and Wimberley Valley Winery sells the barrels...hmmm..." I can picture a table like this on a bed of crushed gravel, under trees laced with tiny white lights near a firepit.
I don't mind the least bit going to help my mother out, but getting off my To Do hamster wheel always makes me feel a little frantic. Here you can see I am multitasking - breakfast, making out my list for the day, paying bills, making appointments and checking email and the calendar.  I know that going to a M-F shift would change a lot of things for me, not the least of which would be one less day to get stuff done.  But the trade-off is that Hubby and I would be off the same two days.  I promised him I would work on it.  Something to think about...
