Five Things

Hello! Happy Friday!

How’s your week been? Ours went by in a blink.

Truthfully, I think it’s gone by so fast because I’ve been in a bit of a fog. I injured my neck last week – wheeling a FREE TREADMILL home from where I found it 5 blocks away. I wish there had been a video, because it was HILARIOUS! All four of us were walking, I saw it and got excited, BB got REALLY excited and said we should bring it home, and Husband and BG ran away and acted like they didn’t even know us! It had wheels, so I pulled and BB pushed, and it really wasn’t very difficult – we laughed the whole way, people in cars driving by laughed and waved, BB pointed and did the crazy sign at me – while he was helping me push! It’s amazing we even made it home, we were laughing so hard.

Anyway, we were super proud of ourselves, but we both woke up sore the next morning, and I just haven’t quite recovered – a bit of pain and a bit of a headache for several days. I’m used to healing overnight – am I getting old(er)??? I’m feeling somewhat better today, so hopefully I’ll be back to normal by Monday and off on some other crazy adventure.

Here are a few things on my mind this week:

rainbow dresses 11. Rainbow Dressing. I loved this. So much. (Made me think about that time I did 31 Days of Color, doing projects in rainbow order and also trying to wear colors in rainbow order throughout the month – Monday: red, Tuesday: orange, etc. That was pretty funny.)



2. Consumers. A few summers ago, my mom and I went to see Austin Kleon (author of Steal Like an Artist) give a lecture at the Sacramento Public Library. His book talked about this idea, and he is quoted or “stolen” from for this Consumers book. A very interesting read. (via Swissmiss)

4. This Instagram. I love his drawings so much – sweet and funny and tender and beautiful.

5. This made me laugh. And also reminded me of this.

What are you up to this weekend? We’ve got a baseball game and a choir cast party, and that’s about it. There’s a rumor that Husband is taking the kids hiking, which means I might have several consecutive hours alone! I can’t even imagine. Whatever your plans, I hope your weekend is full of color and inspiration and tender moments and great laughs. Have a great weekend, and thanks for reading.
