Art: returned!

Well, what do you know? I actually followed through on something and returned the art to the family. Marcia, drawer of the tree, has parents who still live in Seward. It turns out that they actually owned the cabinet with the art, and Marcia did all the pieces inside. (I thought I took photos of the other pieces, but I see that it was another missed opportunity.)

Anyway, it was nice visiting with Helen (Marcia’s mom). She is in an assisted living facility that has several other paintings hanging up. Marcia turned out to be quite the artist. It was nice connecting with Helen. She is going to see if Marcia still wants the tree picture. If not, I can have it!

By the way, her name is pronounced ‘Mar-see-ah’, not ‘Marsha’. Mom, how does Aunt Marcy pronounce it?

By the way, Happy Earth Day! Also, yesterday is the 60th anniversary of the day my Dad proposed to my Mom! Awwwww….. 🙂

“Tie Dye”

IMG_4033

It is the Week of the Young Child, and we have been having some different dress-up days. Today was tie-dye day, and since I do not own any tie-dyed things, I decided we would do the fake ‘permanent marker and rubbing alcohol’ thing. You just draw on a plain white T-shirt with permanent markers then […]

Surprising art

IMG_4002

I was doing some work in the basement of the CDC this evening. Over in one corner we have a random assortment of cabinets that nobody seems to know what to do with. Some are being stored for some people but others, I think, have been donated. One is a tall cabinet full of shallow […]

Awww… five widdle ones!

IMG_3976

Hey! The first of the three cats at tinykittens.com had her babies! My kids were checking in on them. Before nap there were no kittens, after nap there were four, now there are five. Thankfully we didn’t actually see anything that would make me say, “Um, ask your parents,” but it is quite delightful. It […]

It’s up!

I’ve had the painting at school for a while – I hung it by my classroom door until I had a good plan. Anyway, today I moved the Easter stuff out of the reception area, rearranged the furniture and hung it on the wall. Everyone who saw it hanging by my classroom commented on how […]

Musical Genuis

I went to to Omaha with Rachel and Anna on Sunday. Since we had a teenager along, I went into stores I would never go into on my own: Old Navy, Forever 21, Young People Shop Here, etc. The music in every single store was amazing! All the 80’s hits! I had a hard time […]
