Today is a mixed bag of stuff. I’m cranking away on work so I can play with the boys tomorrow. It’s the last official day of summer vacation and we’ve got the last of the school shopping to do, lunch at Champ’s at Crocker Park and general fun and frivolity.
Fall arts events
Wanted to share some fall events with you, courtesy of my cousin-in-law, Laura O’Brien. Laura is a talented artist who is also a partner at Silverthorne Gallery in Rocky River.
She sent an e-mail with news about some upcoming events I thought I’d share. And if you’re in the area and in need of a unique gift, Silverthorne has an amazing assortment of items, created by many talented women.
Here are Laura’s events:
