The space is just magic. These beautiful handmade marionettes are all hanging around the perimeter of the room. Gorgeous.
We saw Sleeping Beauty. One of the pupeteers came out to speak to the audience before the show started. He told us that their version is based on a combination of the fairy tale and the ballet; so the music was beautiful. It was all just dreamy.

Cub brought home this cup with soil in it at the beginning of the school year. It was promptly placed on the windowsill and watered with the rest of our much-loved house plants. Recently, I became saddened because it became dry and extremely limp. I thought it was over, but I kept it on watering it and turning it and loving it anyway. I didn't have the heart to get rid of it. A few nights ago, Cub was over by the plants and I heard her say, "Look, Mama! A Pepper!" She slowly carried the plant over to me and we both just looked in total disbelief. We touched it and smelled it. "Yeah, it's a pepper, Honey!"

There is nothing like...
Did I fool you?
This weekend was simply gorgeous...especially today. I love mild cloudy days. They are so sublime. The air felt good, comforting. It must have been that most people were at the parade. Whatever it was... it was heavenly. There seemed to be a peaceful stillness over the island. I wish it could be like this always. Then I could actually like it here. Sigh...
Lots of crocheting and dreaming this weekend. Last night, I put down the hook and the yarn and just enjoyed some good, old-fashioned thinking, pondering, and meditating on this and that. I looked at my bookshelf for a long time and I became reacquainted with myself. I put some old demons to rest, too. I believe I achieved a new level of peace and it feels great.
Sometimes you just have to stop whatever it is your doing and
give yourself some real attention.
Blessings to all for a wonderful week ahead!

Here is our "Yummy Yummy" (named by Cub) Trail Mix-in-a-pinch:
I need to remind myself more often that it's a pretty nifty idea to combine sweet ingredients with some of the healthier variety:
raisins or other plain dried fruit
chocolate, carob, butterscotch or peanut butter chips
nuts of all kinds
m & m's (a personal favorite!)
Any other ideas out there?
