my kiddies are coming to visit for their spring break, so not much will get done this week.
I have a bunch of things that are in the works so there will be more eyecandy later.

this is one of my favorite pictures of them together.this was taken almost 13 years a go! babygirl is a week old, big brother is 7 and sistagirl is 3.

I have lots of "touristy" things to do and their favorite meals planned I can't wait!

that was a puppet theater then it turned into open mike night at the BR. they are all 2 years older here.

 here is the picture postcard version of starved rock
(add another 3 years)
this is what it's usually like!

it's all fun and games....

I am blue-gray today

It's so easy to become depressed here in the great northwest, when the weather has been put on constant drizzle for weeks, the sky is gray with black roiling clouds  and the temperature is is cold, wet damp and clammy all at once.
when all those places and people I know well are in Chicago and I am here in the gray drizzle. I know-I know I wanted to come here and truth tell, most of the time I don't mind being solitary, I don't mind that I am the only other person I know in washington and I do love it here but....
I have no freinds here. no-one I can call up out of the blue and say lets go do..
no-one I can run across in the store and chat with over this and that.
I need the sun to come out and play, for today, I am blue-gray .

Here in my deep Paisley dream

may is mostly done now I just have to put a border on it and mount it on something sturdy.

the phrase for this months BJP is "I want no world for beautiful you are my world my  true."  this was originally going to be my concept piece for "whatever is done by only me is your doing" but I felt it was not right, once I let go of trying to force it into that place, I got the idea for the other piece and this one came into focus. funny how that happens!

Our inner beauty become manifest.
the paisleys are representative of  our thoughts and dreams as through them we are capable of creating our world. (I've been reading Jung again, can you tell?)

I was thinking about halfway to finishing this project that it would make a wonderful set piece for the other parts of the BJP.
so with that in mind I'm going to wait and see just how large I need to make the border to accommodate the other 11 parts.
