I took a little break mid-morning to go fix breakfast. After we had finished eating, I headed upstairs to look at a few more blogs and was met with a wonderful little note with a poem written by my husband laying right on the keyboard. (melt, melt) and he had chosen another beautiful poem from a book he bought for me last year. He is such a beautiful person and I am the luckiest woman on the planet. I'm even luckier because he doesn't just do these things on Valentine's Day. He's always surprising me like that. Before I came upstairs I hugged and kissed him and told him how being married to him was the best Valentine gift and that every day was a special day. He kind of laughed and I even asked him, "what?" He said, "Nothing" (with a little gleam in his eye) and said that he felt the same. Well, when I got upstairs and found that sneaky boy's note and read his poem that basically said what I had just said to him, I had to laugh and cry at the same time.
Ok, enough of that, right? Ok. :)
I've been having a lot of fun since I joined Willowing's Wonderful World Of Whimsy ning site. I finally got swept up in the whole cute little girl craze. I watched a really great video of Tams (willowing) about face shading and went to do one of my own. I actually really like the way she turned out.
And remember when I asked for inspiration? Friday I mopped the kitchen floor. I had thrown the throw rugs on the washer so I could, well, wash them. I always dry my floor after I mop it because the kitchen is the only way in and out of our apartment so it never has time to dry on its own. Anyway, I threw the old dirty towel on top of the rugs.
Later, Patrick was saying something to me and I glanced past his shoulder to see this:
Just last week I was thinking of doing a "crone" painting but I wasn't sure how I would go about it. Look at that face! And only now am I seeing an extra profile beside her. hmmmmm. Thanks Universe!
We watched Dream Girls yesterday. I can't believe I had never watched it before. It's wonderful!! I was also inspired by the movie to do another little girl drawing. They are sketched in my journal and I'll probably paint them in later and show you. Man, once you ask for inspiration, you just never know where it's going to come from. It's important to pay attention.
Have a wonderful day everyone!
