Hi everyone.The weekend, already. This week FLEW right by. For me, this past week has been the week of good intentions. Tuesday I was ready to go into school and set up my classroom when a friend text me and asked if I wanted to go to lunch, and since I don't see my friend as often as I go to school, I decided to change my plans. And yesterday I was ready to go into school and set up my classroom when my husband called from his office to tell me his mom was sick. So I once again changed my plans and went up to stay with her until my sister-in-law arrived. Then it was off to the emergency room. Luckily my mother-in-law is doing much better, and they never diagnosed really anything except that her blood pressure was sky high and they sent her home with some meds and a doctor's appointment Monday morning.
I think I might just be skipping the classroom set up into our first teacher work day next Thursday. I think the universe is trying to tell me something. :)
Do you remember the night sky journal I was working on? I haven't posted about it for awhile but I have another page to show you, which I am linking up to Jo's challenge of Poetry in Motion over at Art Journal Journey .
Here's the spread with this page.
My art has inspired me to read a space science classic.
This book has been on my shelf for years and yet I had never read it. Until now. A nice geeky read to end my summer break. :)
And I've also been reading this arty fictional book.
Christopher Moore (if you aren't familiar with him) writes comic fantasy (as Wikipedia calls it). This book is set in Paris during the heyday of Monet, Manet, Toulouse Lautrec, and other Impressionists. And then there's the fantasy character, the Colorman, who tried to sell them paints, especially the true blue or lapis lazuli. I'm enjoying it, but I haven't gotten far enough to see what or who the Colorman actually is and what magic he does, but I am curious to see.
And I'll leave you with this final photo I took one foggy morning while we were away in the Finger Lakes.
Enjoy your weekend.
