This is my hairdresser and his posse. He also plays in a jazz band. His name is Robbie Wilson and he's the guy on the bongo.
This is me after a trip to see Robbie.
Another Santa Monica Beach posse.
(That's Boba Fett in the middle in case you didn't recognize him.)
My kitchen sink at night.
Eagle Rock mural.
Greta and Henry hosted an impromptu tea party one sunny afternoon. Ginger lemon cookies and chamomile tea.
While driving, this view of downtown LA is about the time my shoulders lower from my ears after spending time on the westside.
We saw our friend Poppy in her first performance a couple of weeks ago, and what a great performance it was.
The night of my art show a bike tour stopped by. They were in and out in a few minutes and on to their next destination. It was quite a sight and great to see so many bicyclists in one place. Unusual for Los Angeles.
I had many dear friends stop by to see me and my work. Families with little ones stayed late with us, way beyond bedtimes. It was a really good time. They even brought me flowers.
Meet our nightly visitor.
My other angel.
Greta loves woodworking. She decides on projects based on how much hammering will be involved. The more nails required the better.
I leave you with some tomato love. This came from the market, but expect our garden tomatoes to start to ripen any day now.
Finding time to blog has been a challenge lately. Despite my best efforts to stay awake once the kids have been read to and have fallen asleep, I end up falling asleep right with them. I have traded in nights of blogging and commenting on your amazing and inspiring blogs...for sleep. For now I'll listen to my body and get the extra slumber.
I thank you all for the encouraging comments regarding the art show. I am behind in writing back to many of you. Forgive me. Just know that I have kept all of your thoughts and well wishes in my heart and am eager to get back to seeing what you are all up to this summer.
I have saved my garden update for another post. Many afternoons are spent in the garden with my two helpers that share in the excitement of the coming harvest!
