It is 5 million degrees here, so my house is HOT, I am now outside in the yard where it is finally cooling down. Thank God Emmy got this laptop, or Iwould be in the bedroom with the other computer dying of heat stroke.

Cars our driving by, I can hear birds singing, kids laughing and dogs barking, the sounds of summer. My plan was to come home and do something really creative, instead I got my hair colored and cut, went to the neighbors to water their garden while they are gone, watched a new episode of BIG LOVE, which I am addicted to, then watered my gardens.

I started my new book today, Foolsgold, by Susan Woolodridge, it really is good, and I know you would all love itrst read about it at http://www.teeshascircus.blogspot.com/. So far it is great. It has some really good quotes, which I think IKaren beth at http://zazazu.wordpress.com/ would really enjoy.

( I know there is a right way to add the links, but I don't have my cheat sheet out here, so this is what you get)

I am not doing so well on my fat book pages for Portland art and soul, they are do in August. I do have maybe 10-12 but only the front side. I bought some spray paint and stencil stuff to use but I keep wanting to make some painted tank tops.

I think the heat is slowing me down, or my job!! Ha.

I would like to thank Karen Beth and her sister for sending me a box of books for the book drive emmy is having. THANK YOU!!!! i received the box today and I have another box from my mom along with some crayons, pencils and other supplies. i hope to mail them off by the end of May, in time for the new school year.

I think I just ruined my black tank top, I got up to spray paint and stencil it, while writing this ( no i can not focus) I didn't tape anything off, too much work, so paint kind of got everywhere. I guess it still looks ok, not exaclty what I was going for.

So, now i will peruse some blog sites andhope it gets cooler in the house.
A quote from Foolsgold
Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
