21 Feb 2017 New outdoor chalk (Drawings), Dog for Dog Pet food, and song Sun and Stars (Really Slow Motion)

Good afternoon family, how are you?!  Today has been a spectacularly beautiful day – birds singing and doing “spring things” like mating on the wires of a cell tower (yes, this morning  I actually saw a hawk or falcon mating with another one on the cell tower behind our house lol), black, tan, yellow and blue butterflies frantically trying to retrieve nectar from tiny purple flowers…..the sky that perfect blue and the sun warm and comforting on my back.  Things are doing things!  So grateful for so much beauty today.

So Kyle went out and did some errands today and in the process came home with a box of 48 new Crayola outdoor chalks for me!  They are my birthday present from my Aunt Ruth!  She wanted me to buy more supplies for my arts and crafts!  So I set about using them.  Unfortunately the boxes only come with one black colored chalk and I really like to use that color!  It helps bring definition to the shapes and stuff I’m doing.  I looked online and they don’t seem to sell just black chalk by itself so I’m having to go easy on using it lol.

Kyle did something else in honor of my birthday, he took food and supplies to our local animal shelter.  The food we donated is a dog food I found out about that for every bag of food you buy, they give a bag to a shelter: https://www.dogfordog.com/

Feb 21, 2017— “KH Kim, author of the new book “The Creativity Challenge” has tested more than 270,000 people, from kindergartners to adults, looking at (among other things) their ability to come up with original ideas, think in a detailed and elaborative way, synthesize information, and be open-minded and curious — what she considers creativity. Her research has found that Americans’ creativity rose from 1966 to 1990, but began significantly declining after then.” In this article she calls out eight signs of a creative person, and the importance of recognizing and supporting their gifts before it is too late.

Much love, light, and perhaps a reason to smile that makes your whole body just get warm and feel good.   One of my favorite feelings is the feeling of love that warms my heart and just spreads out to my entire body!

  1. your Kyle is the best! I never saw such a big chalk box… we have just small ones here, the common stuff we remember from school, but it is worth to look around for more colors… our whole world needs more colors, right?
