YES...the first cases of the swine flu(or whatever one wants to call it) in the county were in my school district.

NO...not at my school.

Keep up the handwashing and general common sense health practices wherever you are!

Other Things

Thank goodness for other things in the world beside a very belligerent 6 year old who refused to do his these beautiful sunflowers from farmer's market and a supportive principal who took the offender into her office for some educational advice...

My Brain On Stencils

Found these in some of my art things. Cut them myself but without Mary Ann's helpful advice. All I think about are stencils and spray paint...and knitting a shawl...and visual journaling...and how many school days until Sacred Summer...36 if you're counting!

Hand Cut Stencils

My first hand cut stencil from my online class. The first one I found, enlarged, cut and sprayed all on my own start to finish.

Done in different colors...

Heart's Ease

This is the first blossom of the season from the seeds I brought home from my solo trip to England years ago. They've come up yearly and remind me of the very special trip I took for my 50th BD. And yes, it's been long enough that I need to start thinking about the 60th. Oh my.

Out of Control...

Taking an online class in stencils. Went crazy with trying different things for our 1st week's found stencil assignment. Became slightly unhinged looking for more things to try...

Lady Lemonade Doing Her Part

Trying to help the economy my own Lady Lemonade way I once again visited my favorite 3 downtown thrift stores. Park once, shop 3X. I found these treasures! Can you spot: 2 vintage patterns?...2 English tins? ...a Delft bell? a crocheted table cover? a basket perfect for holding brushes? a darling rooster who spoke to me he needed a home? And my $20.00 WILL make a difference to our country's economy...

Something New

Found this piece of beach glass in my wanderings and connected with some people who can make it into a ring for me. Sending it off tomorrow...start of a new adventure into an unknown world for Lady Lemonade. Life can be fun.

Sunday Outing

Trekked up to Ojai Farmer's Market for the best carrots and sugar snap peas in the world. Also splurged on sunflowers...must be vacation of some sort...

The Easter Bunny Came Early

At least in room 3 he made a showing on Friday. Drove the munchkins right over the edge...but they were standing on the brink all week anyway. Teacher now has 2 whole weeks without the little people. Oh what will she do? Be bored to death?
