the winners are… better late then…

Okay, drum roll please- first name- Diane L, 2nd- Shobana, 3rd- Shula, 4th- Kristine Hudson! I will email you to get addresses. Now, for everyone else- I’d like to send you a printed patch, so I will email you and if you want one, you can send me your address.

Everything got a bit too crazy here on the actual birthday. I ended up hardly being home at all! I added the names of everyone who wished me Happy Birthday, no matter what post they commented on, also emails, up to Friday evening, when we finally did the drawing. I couldn’t make myself do it- I had to get my husband. Otherwise, somehow, it didn’t seem fair! Then, the computer got unhappy and I couldn’t post until this morning. Everyone should have gotten their emails by now.
I had a great birthday. I spent the afternoon at the Boston MFA and saw the Edward Hopper show. I brought Noah with me to the museum, but never got a chance to take a photo. I had to run out at the end to go pick up Peter. I turned to snap a photo of the museum before I left. This is what I found when I downloaded the pics-


Isn’t that weird! It was NOT on purpose! Just in case it isn’t obvious- the sculpture is the man walking on a pipe over the entry driveway…

And, I got my very own Ipod… yes! I can’t wait to start downloading all the great podcasts, instead of having to listen to them on my computer.

Then, out for ice cream with Noah-


Isn’t that an eye-popping photo of a hotdog- yikes! Altogether a great day.

Friday, Ben and I took Noah out for iced coffee in the North End of Boston- and I took his sweater off. I couldn’t bear seeing him wearing it- it has been very, very hot and humid here-


This morning, I am off to Northboro for another day of doll making togetherness. Next week, back to my studio… ahhh!
