June 2011

First--apologies for the radio silence (blog silence?).  It's been a very busy couple of weeks since DC, and my allergies have made life pretty hellish, and miserable.  Last Saturday was an unintentional allergy-induced Glee marathon.  Hulu even asked me "You've been watching for three hours; take a break?"  There I was, lying down on the couch, blearily watching those cheerful kids dance and sing (let's be serious, at my current state, the show used about 98% of available brain function)...and then my computer basically accuses me of being lazy.  Just what I needed, a reminder that I wasn't doing anything of real worth or consequence. And yesterday after a morning in the garden, I was completely down for the count and had to take twice as much allergy medication as you're supposed to to get my eyes to stop swelling.  Fabulous.  But, after a nap and a day's recovery spent indoors, I'm feeling a bit better.   Or maybe I'm just getting used to feeling like someone is grinding a potato masher on my face. 


The Art of Disney Animation: some beautiful stills and archives of studies done for Disney films; text is in French, but the films are pretty easy to discern...

John Singer Sargent's portrait of Eugenia Errazuriz and Leonardo da Vinci's La spapigliata (portrait of a young girl) --- separated at birth?

 Ikea and Star Wars.  From Sci-Fi Ikea Manuals.

 Corkboard wall map - genius.

 Things to do:

--Midsommar!  I cannot wait.  I just sent out the official invitation today. 

--wedding in Erie, PA, combined with a trip to see Niagara Falls. 

--Scooper Bowl!  Yum, ice cream.

Aw, sorry about the allergies! I'm excited to see photos of your garden, though, and I'd love to see some pics from DC. Great inspirational website too. I grabbed an image from the "Beauty and the Beast" gallery for my desktop.
