so. let me stick with a running theme here and discuss the weather. it's super hot and muggy and to be honest, i am not complaining. it was chilly last week and i wanted to weep that the beach weather was over. we went to the beach today and swam in bitterly cold water (my ears still hurt) but we SWAM and we swam to cool off and that was really a good thing and i didn't mind that i couldn't wear my glasses in the studio today because they actually impaired my vision so you know. i dread the coming snow. we also just purchased a new fancy pants macpro laptop that i'm typing right now. it will help tremendously for all of the fancy pants shows coming up this september.
oh. on that note. check this out. the link doesn't show anything now but it will tomorrow.

ok. i've been looking at other blogs a bit more lately, and people seem to be posting a lot of their art work, which i am not doing much of at all. so ...i'll give it a shot. these necklaces are doing well -- and i really like making them. lots of different, odd charms.
ok. morning coffee break. we've given up and are paying $$ every few weeks to just order stumptown coffee beans from pdx. it's just too painful otherwise.

ok. wow. so a couple months later. just survived a hellofamarchtoapril winter. brutal. but it's been a couple weeks of rain, not snow. so i don't want to relive the endless icy landscape. there was a couple days of sun somewhere once and now it's just been gray. really, i'll take it. gil's been working on insulating the barn and we'll start classes this coming september. really excited about that. would love to take a road trip this summer but i'm not sure if it will pan out. i'll be in the next sportswear international magazine - for mens accessories. that rocks. (

chloe and i found the bench my dad had dedicated to my mom. it's along the eastern prom walk in portland, maine. she LOVED to walk that, briskly...vigorously. very healthy strong woman. i've walked it with her sooooooo many times, when we would come into town. and then pizza and wine at flatbreads.
i can't believe she's not here. it was so good to sit with chloe and play around the bench. but then looking at the photos just crushes my heart and i can't stop thinking about how much my mom would just love and adore and enjoy and be so blissed out with chloe. they would be such amazing friends. it's insane. oh man.

the i heart love show was a blast, tho. crazy crunch time right up to the end. long late hours while the family is tucked up in bed comfy cozy, where it makes you (meaning me) swear a lot at how much art sucks and what the hell am i (meaning anyone) doing anyways. which i know gil goes thru right before an art show, too. and then all of the unsettled feeling the day leading up to it and just thinking, how bad would it actually be if i bail now. i mean, all of the prep and food and wine buying and all the worrying about little bits of this and that and you just hope people show up. and then, they do and it's a good thing and people are psyched and then you're psyched and glad you did it and love art and expression. so it was really a success in all the ways i would define success. neither gil or i really focused to take many photos...but what we managed to snap, i posted at www.lovinganvil.com/valentine . wow alonzo mourning is wearing the biggest kick ass ring. just introduced mary k blige ...she's singing - really nice. chloe's asleep next to me on the couch and gil's sitting right here, too. raja's snoring on his doggie bed. so it is a really really nice evening. watching the nba all star thang. mellow and content. safe and sound.
ok. babble babble. tomorrow night friends are coming over for miso and saki. i'm totally looking forward to it.
