Attention locals!

Craft Lake City is almost here! I'm so excited! Yes crafting funds are non-existent and it's in the heat of August BUT it will be oh so worth it. I may just have to sell some plasma or set up a lemonade stand outside my house so I generate some funds for a purchase or two to support the local crafters and artists. I'm still adoring my finds from the Beehive Bazaar and Renegade and I have a strong feeling Craft Lake City will indeed be in the favorite event category. But really just to be among all that creative energy and music will probably be enough. No purchase necessary.

my face is smiling

due to these happy thing...
  • fresh garden bounty
  • my james rescuing a dragonfly drowning in our pond (He pulled this little guy out of the algae. The dragonfly flew to james' chest as if to say, "My hero," rested for a few minutes, wiped his eyes and then flew off into the cool night air.)
  • surprise gifts from far away friends
  • Lisa's love for snails

  • warm Summer nights filled with good beer, games of cornhole, and lovely friends

  • my sleepy little dog

on the heavier side of things...

I just watched a clip from last night's So You Think You Can Dance and am a mess. Mia Michaels, the brilliant woman she is, choreographed a dance that mirrors the battle of addiction. For those of you who have experienced the environment of addiction, whether it a drug, a person, a lifestyle - I'm certain you will agree the portrayal is accurate. It really brought back some emotions I personally have not seen for years. My fascination is that these emotions rose within seconds of the beginning of the dance. No wonder God is a dancer. It's powerful and can evokes emotion and passion that words cannot express. Anyway, I'm sure a lot of you are fans and avid watchers of the show, but for those who are not, I've posted the clip below.

By the way, you can stop watching after the dance at about 3:10 to avoid the most annoying Mary Murphy. Why do they always have to have the token annoying judge?? She's like a fog horn in a serene meadow...sorry- tangent, on with the show.

Get the tissues...
