I have been waking early these days, before the rest of my family, and spending time in the studio. Its my favorite part of the day. The picture above is a French Paper promo print Peter brought home for the studio from that wonderful treasure trove at his office known as 'the basement'. I hung her on the back of my studio door.
Emma and I have had some fun one on one time together this week. Shopping together, having ice cream before lunch, things like that. The other day, as we were driving home, Emma made the following observation as we passed a couple of the more "colorful" shops in the area-
Emma: Mom, did you know there is a place called "The Love Zone"?
Me (oh dear...searching...searching) : I did, do you think they sell things that are Love-ly?
Emma: I think they sell things for girls to buy so they can get a boy to like them.
Me (now I'm curious): Oh...what kind of things would that be?
Emma (long silence): I don't know...like a skateboard?
End of conversation...thank God!
I will be away from the computer next week, with extended family. In my bag will be a small knitting project using some yarn in the most amazing color of blue. Curious Incident will soon be finished, and next up is In Cold Blood, an I can't believe I've never read it before books I forgot about until I saw the movie, and some embroidery to do with Emma. Bloglines, go easy on me, I get a little freaked when I see thousands of blog posts that I haven't read. I don't think Peter will let me get a studio assistant (above the age of 7 anyway).
