*I'm too knee-deep in other affairs to go to animama and change all of the print prices back to 24 so please enjoy one more day of the 19 dollar print sale * Yay!
Being on a getaway to our friends' home was bliss. Their house is a haven by all accounts, not unlike Narnia, where there is fun lurking around every corner as well as yummy British foods such as Jam & Cream biscuits (it's a cookie, already). I'm *so grateful* to have friends who let us come and stay for a week. (Especially after I fell skirt over teats into a hedge at their wedding outside London in '93-thanks guys.)
There is so much to do back at home-fun stuff, mostly. I'm actually going to share some pics of my studio this week, something I've never really done at my blog Since I'm celebrating four years of blogging this month, I thought it would be nice to give you a peek into my little creative space. Of course I started frantically cleaning at the thought of it, so it's turned into a beautifying week of chaotic sorts. I'm taking the week off from painting and instead putting things in order, etc. Allowing myself to take time off while I'm at home is practically unheard of, so I'm trying to take advantage of my generous gift (from me to me) and work my can off. I have to make it worth my while, right? I'm making hay while the sun shines, I suppose. Speaking of that damned sun....
It was a hundred and ten degrees today which means there will be no going out of the house this week with the littles, and Brandon will not be riding his bike to work, leaving me carless. Can you believe it? 110? Unspeakably brutal. I'm watching our peaches ripen and the rest of the plants melt.
Clearly taken in a climate other than the one I live in.
I'm also overhauling my banner and making some changes to the look of this blog which has been a long time comin'.
I received Momma Zen's post today, which reads: Attention is the most concrete expression of love. "What you pay attention to thrives. What you do not pay attention to withers and dies."
There shall be no withering here!
