la premiere framboise de l'ete

randomness from the last week or so...


my friend Tonya's good-bye party at the Yard House...she went back to Russia on Friday...


saturday..."practicing" for Pip's show...

i haven't taken cloud pictures in a while...

aaand Pip's show. at the El Cid last night...





it's starting to be warm and lovely
the first raspberry of summer...





feet. and my favorite shoes.


Alec and Sarah got home from Texas today...


we ate and shopped at this crazy place in Glendale where they have a trolley, and a big fancy fountain, and just about every kind of shop and venue you can imagine. i didn't even know it existed before today...

at 16:00 there was a water show that was choreographed to Louis Armstrong's "it's a wonderful world".

a few feet away from me a little girl was standing with her dad, was enthralled by the spurting, swirling jets of water. she remained in rapt attention through the whole song, a smile on her glowing little face, the afternoon breeze picking up strands of her hair in a halo around her head...


it made me really happy.


weird thing:
i can't find my ipod, so yesterday i was rifling through the cds in my car and found a blank disk in an unlabeled case. i remembered that one of my friends gave me a mix cd a few weeks ago! so i popped it in...and it is beyond fantastic. problem is, i can't remember who gave it to me. so i'm very frustrated.
"wow colleen!" you're saying..."if that was the pique of my frustrations, i would be so happy!"
and to that, i reply, "well, you're right. unfortunately, it is not the foremost frustration in my life. i have just decided to focus in it instead of, for example...my anxiety about getting a job...and the fact that my knees don't work anymore..."

ok. all jesting aside, the Lord has been really good this week, in the midst of frustration. so i just want to thank Him for that.

oh if only i could just draw people for the rest of my life. sigh.

we'll see...

HEY! Lets get total knee replacements together! We'll get matching knee joint plates in purple to match our teeth.

I sent you a blank CD a couple of weeks ago with the Lawhead books... so maybe that was the CD you played in the car.
