Outside my window...the birds are sweetly singing through the rain.
I am thinking....that I wish I'd brought a bigger lunch. I don't know what I was thinking not baking any of that bread I baked last night!
I am thankful for...all the perfect, beautifully sunny weather over the weekend when Matt and I were selling tie-dye...outdoors.
From the kitchen...there was some discussion about whether gravy counted as a sauce and if so what exactly makes a sauce a gravy.
I am wearing... a long, tan skirt, black RMC polo shirt, and birks.
I am creating... ojos, lots and lots of ojos. And the biggest one yet: three feet across. Oh, it is a monster, but it already looks so awesome. Also, I am trying to make as many normal sized ones as possible. So far I have seven. We are using them as camp decorations at an upcoming music festival.
I am going...to the Love Your Mother Earth Festival in a mountain meadow. Hip hip hooray! Summer is here! Soon the concert season will be in full swing!
I am reading...The Ranch Woman's Manual by Gwen Peterson and it is a superb blend of helpful and hilarious.
On my mind... is Adam (brother-in-law) and Jen moving to the very, very, very bottom of California. I am trying to be happy for them, but I mostly am just sad and mad about it for a variety of reasons. But, they are both adults and it is THEIR life. I just have to keep reminding myself that. Still, I miss Adam already and he hasn't even gone yet. I think it is so painful for me because I already have a sister that lives out on the coast that I only see a couple times a year. Its bad enough with one, now we'll have two. And my sister Sarah is applying for jobs out of state, too. In any case, change is hard (especially when the change is those you love leaving you behind), but I am working my way through it.
Around the house... we are running low on some essentials and really need to do some shopping. Boy I hope we get a lot more garlic and onions out of the garden this year so we can stop buying so dang many.
One of my favorite things... finding a good home for something I don't want, but cannot bear to just throw away and can't be recycled. It makes me quite pleased with myself.
A few plans for the rest of the week...put the finishing touches on my cloak, finish "the big ojo," label and put all new photos into albums, tie-dye.
