I made something. It's been a Very Long Time since that has happened. Turquoise and wood, with a sterling toggle.

The neighborhood kids are having a great time "Boo-ing" each other. I don't know where it started, but you get Boo-ed after dark. At our house it came with a loud banging on the door (our doorbell is broken) and then a panic by the dogs. When we opened the door, no one was there... but there was a package with a poem about getting boo-ed and a bag of candy and a boo sign to put on the door to show the world we'd been boo-ed. Luke enjoyed it a lot. So much so that he re-boo-ed the neighbors and was re-boo-ed too. It's nice living in a neighborhood where you get boo-ed.

Six years with this darling boy of mine. He was spoiled royally today, and enjoyed it thoroughly.

Two ponies trailing around through the magic garden, taking the kids for a thrilling jump up and over the little hill between the holly and the ivy. Then a cowboy cookout with the new firepit. Boys playing Power Rangers under the fir canopy, and more climbing the old magnolia.

I think it might just have been the most perfect day. Certainly a perfect birthday.

Run Luke Run

School jog-a-thon. Once again Luke exceeded expectations and I owe a ton of mula due to his many, many, many laps. Go Luke!

Bye Bye Periwinkle

I went back to exploring yellows and ended up with a golden wheat/camel color. I love it and I think this is IT. Now to move on to something new. Jewelry perhaps??? Who knows.
