I went to Fabric Land with Heidi and picked out a skirt pattern and this luscious material....All this is because {a} I went shopping recently and was so disappointed in the selection of clothes that were meant for my size {adult} when the clothes I really liked were in the girl's section. I even rather hopefully help up a pair of pink pj's with unicorns up to my waist in the desperate hope that I could squeeze into them... nope. The second reason is {b} that darnit, I'm a creative person, and it's about time I started dressing like one. Faeries are way more interesting ó and way more me ó than plaid. I got a little extra material to play with... I may even make myself a little bag to hold my magic wand in.

Listening to Donovan today gave me:

People walking around, they don't know what they're doing
They've been lost so long they don't know what they're looking for
Well, I know what I'm looking for but I just can't find it
I guess I'd better look inside of myself some more


I'm looking, all right...

I heard the story yesterday on NPR about this amazing woman who ran the London Marathon in 11 hours. She's 90 years old! I'm 1/3 of her age and it would take me way longer than that. I was so inspired after hearing her story that I had to roll down the window and blow massive amounts of bubbles to the rest of the cars waiting at the stoplights.

I'm a big believer in synchronicity, and today did not disappoint. I've been doing a lot of thinking and planning on marketing my artwork, starting with a line of greeting cards. Today I went on Amazon and was directed to SARK's latest book: Prosperity Pie: How To Relax About Money and Everything Else {not what I had come on the site for} and the excerpt from the book listed this quote:

You are enough
You have enough
You do enough
It's true


It's true! I could use some relaxation, about money and everything else. Hmmm.
{sound familiar? I put this quote in April 9th's blog.}

A trip to the libraryís annual book sale {$3 a bag} got me many goodies, including Lake Wobegon Days, Out of Africa, a book of short stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Eight Cousins, and my very own copy of Archy and Mehitabel, one of my latest favorite reads.

My friend Craig came to visit today {after a trip to my brother's} and we exchanged Christmas presents at last. I was gifted with the White Album {I own all the Beatlesí records, but not CDs} and Emmet Otterís Jug Band Christmas, which I donít think Iíd seen since I was 8. {Beatles and Muppets... so dear to my heart. Iím pretty easy to figure out.}

The biggest excitement of the day was that we moved into our new bedroom Ė all painted, carpeted, and woodstained. The room is lined with windows and when you lie on the bed all you can see are trees and sky and a little piece of house. Now I just need to paint a good picture for over the bed...
