Our week started off on a bit of a downer as Artoo was home sick from school both Monday and Tuesday. The only upside of this is that Artoo seems to be handling colds better now and we are able to manage them from home without a visit to the hospital. Small Victories! (Well, that's actually kind of a huge one, to be honest)
He was happy to be back at school on Wednesday, except by wednesday i had started to feel kinda crummy, so i spent a lot of the week resting up while the kids were in school because we had a big weekend planned!
Chewie and his friend E have been bowling in a league since September, and back in November they won first place in local tournament qualifying them for Provincials! So, this weekend we drove down to Regina for the Provincial Masters Bantam Tournament.

The rest of the afternoon and evening was spent at the waterslide park in the hotel - where Artoo braved the super fast waterslide, even though he was scared. He decided he was NOT a fan of the waterslides, and much preferred to swim in the pool or play in the spray park.
Chewie, on the other hand, was off on the slides the second we got there. We had an adjoining room with his bowling partner's family (they're close friends of ours since high school) so he and Miss E were off like a flash.

Weekly Challenge #302: "UMT Hamadox by Diana Schreur CZT"
For those of you who are new, the first Monday of every month is a Use My Tangle Challenge, where the challenge of the week is to use a tangle created by one of you! If you have a tangle you'd like to submit you can add it here and be sure that it follows the guidelines for submission.
This month's UMT is Hamadox by Diana Schruer, and you can see the step outs here - This should be an easy one, seeing as wee're all warmed up with last week's Paradox duotangle. I had been seeing this tangle being used in the Mosaic app for a while, and i didn't know how to do it, but i love how it looks. So i'm super excited to see it come up this week.
Here's my take on it:
have a great week!
And if you're on the Zentangle Mosaic App or Instagram - i'm @iamthediva - come on by and follow me, and i'm going to be using hashtags on the app for each of my weekly challenges. So if you're game - use the hashtag #DC302(Diva Challenge #302) for your tile this week! You can also search in the app for people's contributions to the challenge by clicking on the hashtag from inside the app, or using the search function.
If you have a blog or host your images on line (like on Flickr or Picassa or Pinterest), add the site-specific URL where your tile is posted to the linkey machine below! Don't forget to link back here so that others can join in the fun! (if you don't know how to find this, you can see my half assed tutorial here) Also, please feel free to come back often and visit the links of those people on the linkey machine - don't forget to leave a comment or feedback, everyone loves feedback. ;)
If you love the challenge as much as i do, please consider leaving a tip (tip jar in the side bar). I write this blog for free and have no plans to make it a paid for service in the future. Buy me a cup of coffee, or a new Micron pen!! Click the tip jar on the side for a monthly tip, but if you just wanna throw a few bucks my way THIS LINK will give you a one time option. A very big thank you to those who have kept me in hot cups of joe. ;)
