And mirth that has no bitter springs” –Rudyard Kipling
Simple things that are delighting me lately, on the strip that connects my t.v. wall mount thing (which I am going to crack my head open on, mark my words) to the outlet near my computer desk. (Remind me to show you my desk and my cute new-to-me chair sometime.) (I’m not sure if that first sentence makes a lick of sense.)
Anyway. Where was I? Oh yeah.
-Norman Rockwell postcard. <3. (From a book of N.R. postcards I won by being the fastest diaper changer on a baby doll at the hospital on a field trip in 10th grade. When I decided I wanted to be a neonatal nurse. Remind me to tell you all the things I’ve wanted to be over the years.)
-Postcard, and business cards, towards the bottom, from some of my favorite people on the internet..
-Postcard from my beloved Florence..
-And post-it of my favorite new quotation..
Have I shown you the self-portrait I had to do for my arts and cultures class? Here it is.
The rules were, it had to have something representing each of the ten social studies concepts/areas (culture, history, geography, me, us, authority, economics, tools, global connections, citizenship..is that 10? yeah..), 7 pictures and 3 words/phrases..I pulled out my stacks of magazines from under the bed (mostly “Real Simple”, with some “Domino” and “Shape” thrown in there) and had a great time. I was really happy with the way it turned out.
Re: that quilt from the last post: I covet it in a way that breaks a commandment..I should take pictures of the quilts that my great-grandmother has made me..add that to the list..
Now..homework. For real..
