the sunny side of the street

Sometimes I return from a trip overwhelmed. After spending a lot of time exploring and absorbing new things, in a new light, lots of newness, sometimes restful, sometimes action-packed--coming home again, back to work, there's that period of readjustment to getting back to the same old stuff while trying to set a new course to somehow keep the recharged energy alive. It's like re-entering the earth's atmosphere. Luckily there are some great things about this week that are keeping me on the happy side of the fence (and the sunny side of the street):

1. Mrs. French wrote such nice things on Monday, I sat in front of my computer and blushed. then I looked through her flikr stream and thought, "wow. did Spring just get gorgeouser?"
traci french's beautiful Spring photos and
a Spring Bonbon she wrote about.


2. I finally finished my notebook entry for Jude's great "Do not Leave Unattended" Project. (I had such enthusiasm for it--loved the idea, the sentiment but...I left it way unattended--try 4 months worth of unattended--I mean-it just kind of happened). Anyway, what was nice was to sit and take out my watercolors and play a little. I decided to leave them out and play with them again, my Spring thing-(notice the polka dots). Here is my entry:

3. a flurry of phone calls from friends and family saying, "GUESS WHERE I AM RIGHT NOW??? URBAN OUTFITTERS STARING AT Your Urban BONBONS" so Jim and I headed over there last night to see and there they were, smiling up at me, with their cute little labels and shimmery little chains saying, " hello mommy"! So yes...take a look--they should be in an Urban Outfitters near you this week...or check it out HERE!

4. I am excited about Krissy's Happiness Project. Beautiful.
5. I'm riding such a wave of calm right now that it is totally freaking me out. Yeah.
