Numbers and taxes are my game at the moment. I’m letting the creative part of my brain work subconsciously for a while…have a little rest. Percolate…that’s a good, descriptive word for the state of mind I’m in. Ideas are generating under the surface, and every so often they erupt and engage me in thought, note taking, and even a little research. Then back to work….but sooner or later the coffee will be ready and I can drink from my favorite cup!
Over the weekend we had a little party for Mom. She was so happy to have all her peeps celebrating with her, and especially her two great-grandchildren. One of her best gifts was news from my nephew, Ron and his wife Courtney. They are expecting another baby in September.
I am also taking her to the Detroit Institute of Arts this weekend…her birthday celebration continues! We will see “Rembrandt and the Face of Jesus”. Then in March, we are taking a watercolor class together…yup, my 80-year-old momma and I.
Natalie will have a “brudder or sista”….in 7 months!
(Note to self: Buy some birthday candles!)
Colton will have a new cousin!
Colton thought Marlo might have some hidden art talent, so we helped her paint…..one thing I do know: Marlo is the Queen of Forbearance!
And I did make one “something” this week. A shadowbox, all jazzed up with my favorite photo of mom. She loved it.
“Young at Heart”…that’s my mom’s spirit, even if the body sometimes doesn’t want to coöperate!
