The female form

Interesting things, these female bodies of ours. They change as needed. They follow an internal rhythm.

They stretch and grow to encompass the life within them.

They feel and know the one within them. The one the rest of us can't see.

They express. They feel.

They play.

In a nutshell...

I think it was Covey or someone like that that said, "The more I learn, I find the less I know." I always thought that was weird, but now it feels so true. All I know is boiling down to two things. Light and Dark....Life and Death. Enjoying myself, laughing, smiling, focusing on joy, pleasures, and happiness...feels like life. Stressing, judging, being uptight, worrying, slowing into inactivity...feels like death.

And I prefer Life and Light.

That's all I know.

My pretty...

I've got The Hobbit on the brain, since that's our latest family read. But I wanted to show you another new necklace I acquired. This darn pic is so dark, it doesn't give the necklace it's justified POP. It's made of shell and is so shiny. Love it.

So, picked up some groceries to give some of Marie's recipes a go. You can download your own here.

Alright...of to go be social at the neighborhood get-together. We'll see how THAT goes!

( my bed ever made? I know it is...just not when I take pics!)

Random Pics

If you don't have lawn, apparently walking through the "not lawn" can result in this effect. Ow! I got a nasty scrape from it as well!

My Christmas item that stays all year. Really, only the glitter made it Christmas-y. And up above, you can see Randy's lastest religious find. I think he got this guy at the Krishna Temple. He has a Buddha on the opposite side. It glows.

Justin and Jasen are finally getting along. Jasen's learning to not beat up on his older brother.

What 5 year old wouldn't want a picture with a Legos man from Star Wars. Heavens....Lego Star Wars is his favorite game!

Playing with Video...Knitting Finds

So Marie suggested I check out Heindselmann's knitting shop in Provo. I find I much prefer the drive into town to get the kiddos from school if I get to do something fun, too. So today, I got to explore the wonderful world of fibers...with my fingertips. Among my finds were a fairy dust necklace, with a little fairy on the front, some sock yarn, and some needles. But actually, I got the needles at Roberts. It was a great little outing. Thanks for the idea.

Apparently, this is the face I make when I can't get a container to open. Lovely!

Be sure to notice the cool birthday necklace from Marie.

Ever notice how when inspiration hits, it rarely has anything to do with the dishes...or any other kind of housework for that matter?

Today I'm brimming with new ideas, and ready to write. Sorry, sweet kitchen. It's true, you aren't nearly as fickle as the muses, but when they call, I've gotta run. We'll chat later!
