Today is transition day. Today I will transition from store attendant, mom, Nana, wife, cook, Gardener, student etc., etc., into an art crazed lunatic "gotta get ready for the show one week from today" oh my gosh optimist. As soon as I finish this gigantic cup of very good coffee with honey and real cream. And get rid of this headache brought on by this crazy beautiful changing weather. Oh, it is absolutely delightful here! Look!
But the change is coming! High predicted 46 degrees on Saturday! Low of 35. And so it begins.
In art news:
Right now, this little guy is on the table.
Sewing like a maniac is in the cards today --- journal covers and etc.
Stringing little clay bird key chains and pendants, that's happening too.
And grouting an owl and a note board.
I have a bird cage piece to finish that I am SUPER excited about.
Then I will start gluing tiles again for a Welcome sign and perhaps a few other surprises.
It's going to be a BIG day!
Tomorrow I return to store attendant.
Saturday is my sweet Paul's birthday. So, wife and maid and cook show back up.
And I leave you with this, a little tidbit of personal stuff. This past weekend was fabulous and special and very much like a big gift with the reunion for my grandson and dozens of children like him who are walking miracles. I was (as well as everyone there) in the middle of children with name tags on who were running around like any other normal kids, enjoying bouncy houses, games of all sorts, pizza and cake, and giggling, laughing and being kids. It doesn't sound like a big deal, but when you know what these children went through and the fact that they are still alive, it's MONUMENTAL! And quite amazing. And a very perfect reason to give thanks. And the other big blessing was having BOTH of my children in the same place at the same time! That's almost a miracle as well :-)
Happy Thursday to all!
