sunny saturday


coffee, newspaper, flowers, sun - a good start to the day


a fresh round of mindless word fun in progress


the little waiting area at the casbah market deli


one of the ten thousand barber shops on mass street (it looked too 'mayberry' to pass up)


artsygirl had fun with the camera


and drew a picture of me with a little alien in my shoulder


and in the mail came a surprise, a gorgeous drawing from thoughtful aris - her work is quiet yet so powerful. she drew this one especially for me and that makes it even more of a treasure. i LOVE it. thank you aris! :)

so the day is nearly done - we had a sun-filled afternoon with mudpies and water balloons, the girls are exhausted, and now i'm going out to the front porch with my glass of wine for the rest of daylight to spy on the party across the street and listen to their *really* bad live music. they are having a good time, though, and that counts for something. ciao!

Hi Aimee! I've been meaining to say that i admire your ability to see art everywhere you go. In the most average places. I tried following your trend, but so far I couldn't find anything around me... well.. i admit, i started seeing more and more interesting stuff around me. thank you so much for this!

Hey! What a gorgeous way to start the day. And be careful with all those words laid out like that. One good sneeze and.......

Artsygirl's flower spray is shaped like a heart. And I am SO in love with her portrait of you! HAHAHAHA! Cake, Sloober, Drool! HAHAHA

And yes, gorgeous drawings from Aris. Woweeee! What a great Saturday.

I can't help wondering who is doing the sloobering and drooling--is it you or the little alien?!?

i'm quite sure that *I* am the one 'sloobering' and drooling in this picture - not a doubt in my mind.
