People discuss my art and pretend to understand as if it were necessary to understand, when it's simply necessary to love.

I have Blogger's Block again...

First, the quote today is Monet. I love Monet. I don't know that I've ever really told any of my friends that, just... because it's never come up. Imagine my surprise when I woke up to this on my back porch (ignore the recycling project happening in the background)...


Who DOES that?!

Second, as I said last week, Gabby's doctor gave me permission to take her to Disneyland once, this weekend. The chemo she's on this month lowers her blood counts, so this weekend was our one window of opportunity to head out with her.

And it was rad.

She went nuts when she saw the Castle, loooooves King Arthur's Carousel, was totally amused by Dumbo ("Mommy, that elephant is FLYING! That's so crazy!"), screamed through all of Matterhorn, and wanted nothing to do with Pirates. We have annual passes to Disneyland, so we go a LOT, but she was acting like it was her first time there ever. It was a great morning, and she had tons of fun.

1 & 2 even managed to participate without melting down.

She also drew a pretty fantastic dinosaur on her magna-doodle.

Third, my sister is coming to visit this week. So far, our winter has been fantastic. Sunny, warm, clear - beautiful. While the rest of the country was melting down over some chilly weather, we've been basking in the SoCal sunshine.

So of course, this is what our forecast looks like for her visit:
Goodbye, hiking. Goodbye, dinners overlooking the ocean at sunset. Goodbye, morning runs. Goodbye, sitting on the beach eating cheese. Stupid winter.

Finally, last but not least, I have an iFitness belt giveaway here, that's ending tonight, and so far, looks like Little Fruit Fly has a lock on it!


  1. I'm so glad she had such a fun time in Disneyland!!

    Stop telling people to enter, dang it!! This giveaway is MINE!!!!! I'm going to stand at the door and not let anyone into your blog if they plan on entering! ;-)

    Monet is my favorite, FYI!

  2. I love that quote! Monet is one of my favorites too! I did my IB extended essay on Monet, Degas & Caillebotte


Comments rock.
