a quiet produce...and my travel magazines....

Full Moon or Thunder Moon...Big Buck Moon....

I spent the morning resting in bed with my cup of coffee and CBS Morning Show..they may have been reruns most likely but it is always a relaxing way to bring in a new worship of St. Mary's of the Bed springs... a little disrespectful but quiet refection is good for the soul. Ken and I had watched a movie "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas" and the story is so powerful and an emotional highway to remember the importance of knowing our History. The little Jewish and one the son of a German soldier...weave a story of unlikely friendship and compassion for each other and their predicament. Ken had ordered this movie from Netflix and I think I would like to watch it once again...the complexities of secrets in families and governments reminded me of my flawed acceptance back in the 1960's. Each character's development and unique voice documents the events in Germany in the 1940' will make you ask what is your truth? Questions are necessary for a trusting relationship ....even when they are the most difficult of the questions and the answers are not what we would have expected or wanted. Has anyone else heard or seen this movie? I would love some feedback if you are willing.

I did the grocery shopping with Ken and we had a pretty efficient and cost prohibitive receipt at the end of the total tally. On the way out Ken noticed two 75% off shelving units with doors ...and he went back after dinner to purchase them. I love this magnificent man...we could not make them for that cheap and they will serve their purpose. We think we have the design area worked out and hopefully plenty of storage to keep materials and supplies hidden when they are not in use. Tomorrow we will work on putting them together and I will take photos and post as the studio comes together. I have the three girls tomorrow morning from 8:30 am because their mother has been called into the office so we will plan a pizza lunch at the Grill and I will give them a small tour of the studio...they are very excited and cannot wait until I get it set up and they will be able to come in for making ART! After lunch I am hoping the girls and I will be able to see Ramona and Beezus...the movie. I have snacks and blow pops to help cut costs so I have to remember to put them in a separate bag... the tickets costs a small fortune by themselves.

This morning I tried to sneak up on my triplets...the tiny deer were eating my flowers and when I opened the door off they scampered...they are so beautiful. I will keep trying to capture them with my camera but right now their skinny little toothpick of legs are much faster than mine, I hope you all have had a relaxing weekend.

  1. I'm looking forward to taking Hayden, 10, to see that movie. I usually take orange slices. The smell drives all the people around us, eating, salty popcorn, crazy. lol :)Bea

  2. I read the book when it first came out. That was when I was still employed and was a teen librarian. How I miss being a librarian. It is a thought provoking story and the book received positive reviews.

  3. CBS Sunday morning is religion to me and my husband! I love that show, too.
    I saw Boy In the Striped PJ'sand felt heart sick through out... As tough as the ending is, I feel it would have been inauthentic to have gone any other way, don't you? I don't want to give any of it away to those that may see it! It definitely inspires one to question authority, to trust what your gut and eyes tell you, not simply follow the words of someone in higher authority - even if it is a loved and trusted one...
    Your studio keeps coming together better and better! Here's to supportive partners in artistic crime os passionate creativity!! Xoxox K

  4. The CBS Morning Show is one of my favorites, it has everything and is so well done!
    Love your thunder cloud ... hope you got washed in lovely moonbeams last night
