Dancing...Singing...and a "new" Chandalier

Well it really is time to step up to high-speed internet. This free dial-up is just so slow and it takes forever to visit everyone. On top of that at 11:30 on Sunday night the dial-up quit. I had a busy tone on my computer until today. I get it free from my work but it took until today for them to have it fixed! I'm glad to be back and trying to catch up.

Tonight is a busy night around here for me. Dancing with the Stars ends tonight. :o( It was so good last night.

I think Shawn Johnson did such a wonderful job. Her freestyle was so energetic. Melissa Rycroft was pretty good too but I have seen her dance better. I ws surprised at Cheryl's choreography last night. Gilles Marini wasn't dancing the way we love to watch him dance. She seemed to be doing most of the dancing. The spotlight was on her I felt.

Its a 2-hour finale and I'll be glued to the TV. No matter who wins that couple will deserve it. They are all so good. Don't you think?
Following that we have Adam Lambert vs Kris Allen on American Idol. I think this will be a close one. The two of them are so different and so good in their own way. Are you like me glued to the set Monday to Wednesday? I won't know what to do with myself next week!! (Check here for this site)

Very recently I was excited because I found something at the thrift shop that I'd been looking for. I didn't want to show it right away because I was going to paint it an ivory perhaps a bit distressed. It was one of about 7 boxes of new chandaliers. I am SURE I "willed" it to be there.

Some of the others were really huge and heavy and quite lovely...but too big for my place. I had Geoff hang it up for me last night in its original state. I think I can bribe Geoff to take it down again if I decide to spray it another colour. All the pricsms were included although I had to go back to get them once I noticed they were missing but a little hand written note explained there were extra pieces in their back room. Do you know, this beauty was $24.99. Good deal eh?

I had better do what I need to do tonight...so I'll be all ready for the big TV festivities.

Enjoy... Judi xoxo

Judi, you did well with your chandelier! That's a great price.

I don't watch much TV, but all of my friends are excited about tonight. Is there a Frenchman on DWTS? I thought someone mentioned a Frenchman that they loved.

Hope your faves win!

Hi Judi! I'm behind on the tv shows at the moment, but thanks for letting me know about Idol!

Oh, Judi, I'm laughing right now! Piddlin' is just a word that can be used like - fooling around, playing, messing around...it's just a funny term!

Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

The chandelier looks great. I am out of the loop with the dancing stars thing. Never watched. I can see how it would be fun to watch though.
