i’ll be mostly unplugged until may 1st, but i will have my ipad with me with my stack of library books uploaded (!)
so that means i might do a wee bit of instagramming and email checking. stopping in kansas to visit mama moss then carol & i are flying over to italy together. 10 days of umbrian bliss. we’re planning to soak it all up from our hilltop vista above spoleto.
hold the fort down for me! but wait! there are 952 things i have to tell you before i go. okay?
my sister sent me THIS link to the fabulous brain pickings sunday edition which i hadn’t seen yet.
it’s about this book:
do take note of all the peachy keen extra groovy hand-illustrated diagrams & cats. i especially loved the article because it reminded me of when buck moss went missing for 5 and a half weeks, but ended up being in my neighbor’s chimney the whole time. damn i loved that cat. still do. always will.
sons of guns! lookit my peaches! i’ve got jillions of them lining the branches of my baby fruit cocktail tree.
i’ve reached a tentative agreement with the squirrel union. they are going to lay off the peaches this summer in exchange for a squirrel convention i’m allowing to be held in the oak trees in september. hope this doesn’t turn out to be a big mistake.
just a few weeks ago the epi buds were just beginning to get big.
then BAM! they all opened at once.
so pretty. so pink.
sigh. if you made it this far you’ve ALMOST reached the end of this long-winded post… it’s not over yet i have to tell you about a couple of sketchy things first.
thing #1 – this book!
so thorougly delicious. the writing is funny. the little illustrations are divine.
okay and the actual very last single solitary thing before i go.
thing #2 my crazy news people. whoever invented the pause button must have been a sketcher.
