:: I also saw this headline today on a popular news website.
Last I checked, this is not news. Grow up America. Our daughters deserve better.
:: I just sipped from the third cup of coffee I've had today that's gone ice cold before I've had a chance to finish it. Also, it's cool enough to sleep in fleece at night. Last week, I was counting my pennies for an air conditioner. That's summer in the Northeast for you.
:: Listening to Helen Stellar's "This Time Around" puts me in a different place mentally and emotionally. I'm pretty sure that place is some stretch outside of Little Rock, Arkansas on the drive to Memphis. Yes, I'm fairly certain that is exactly where it drops me. I also just have a special love for the Elizabethtown soundtrack, and as of late, want it playing when I'm in a car riding through country towns and tunnels of trees.
:: Maddie told me today, "Mom, God has black skin and Jesus has white skin... and I have brown skin. Is it ok that they don't match?" Goodness I love her. I was thrilled that she was bringing up faith-related things again, as it's quite beautiful to watch this unfold in her. But then she added, "And Santa... well, is he real? And what color is he?" So, you know, that's how these things go. She also added, "And the clouds love me, right? I mean, they're always there and floating... but they don't let me drive." Trying to understand her logic is, well, impossible.
:: I also asked her what her favorite fruit is, and she thought, and thought and finally shouted "the fruity cereal!!" Am I failing as a parent? This may be an indication.
:: And then, I finished up yesterday with sketching, typography, quotes and things.
