let down

I don't like to get my hopes up most times because of the let down that can happen.  But I did, and now I'm in the 'let down' phase.  It's tough to do what we want to do with the real estate market being the way it is.  I guess if I'd like to lose money I could still do what I'd like, but it would be a step back and I don't think we can do that right now.

On a happy note, I'm back in the studio with my puppy wrapped up in a big pink blanket with me, I have a stash of Curly Wurlys, and a good book.  Poo poo with crappy real estate - I vote for escape-ism!!!

Kim Klassen's Textures - word & thursday
photo - U2's Bono, Edmonton June 1, 2011

Gratitude - not only am I grateful for music, I'm grateful Bono didn't permanently injure himself with the back injury that cancelled last year's show.  And I'm grateful my husband didn't ask how much I paid for the tickets.  And I'm grateful he decided to check out what the special line up was... it was for entrance to the inner ring at the concert.  So yes, I had to stand for 6 hours on concret, and yes, I got a lot of beer spilled on me, and yes, I really had to pee and couldn't actually leave my 'spot' for fear of it being taken......but I was there.  I sang & danced with the teenagers in front of me.  I was beside the man who caught one of those white roses for his wife.  I got this shot of Bono, with a little point & shoot. 

And yes, we were that close.  It. Was. Awesome.

fabric rainbow

How inspiring!  I wish I had the gumption to do this (but for my paper, as I don't have a fabric rainbow like Jamaica does).  http://www.jamaicamakes.com/jamaica/2011/09/the-great-fabric-transition.html

Actually, if I could actually concentrate on one thing at a time, it would maybe get organized properly and stay that way.  I think maybe I need a week where I lock myself in my studio and don't do anything else. 

Winter is coming.  Perhaps then?  Anyone want to come & help?
