Wicking it Up

I've been making herbed butter and fresh cheese. Oh! And chutney with homegrown dill and coriander seeds and homemade vinegar (a batch of kombucha turned into some very tasty vinegar).
This is the view from the art studio window. I love watching the alley art develop plus we're really close to the Gallivan Center and can hear a lot of the Thursday night concerts. It makes me more productive to feel like I'm in the party but not of the party.
And here is proof that Mamma Mia-of-the-off-the-charts-high-energy can sit still for a couple of minutes!
We're writing a book together. It's all about our beloved ancestors and their unbelievable stories. In comparison Mamma Mia and I feel...much quiet(er). By the way, Mamma Mia is an excellent, no messing around writer. I'm contributing by giving her topical assignments plus she's under the impression that I have good grammar. Teehee.

Besos!

Where is the Gallivan Center? Is that in Provo? I agree that the alley graffiti is cool.

hey mr. curious,
it's our little home away from home, nest in another tree, not so secret get-a-way- and it's in salt lake.

You can tell that she's shaking in her seat- impatiently clicking on the keyboard so she can go back to her garden. That energy! People say I have a lot but what I have pales in comparison...
Love that Mama.

I know what you mean about making you feel productive when you are at the party but not at the party! Lollapalooza was a couple of blocks away this year.
The best thing about it was staying out of the crowds. Being able to hear the music from a distance is great. I wish it were every week!

You do have good grammar. Come out of the closet. Not so very embarassing! (K, not sure about that last exclamation point.) But, even more important than grammar, which can always be massaged, you're charming--much scarcer and unrepeatable.
