RAN into Forest Grove tonight after work to ready the guest artist's kits for Chalk Art. Put in chalk, brushes, knee pads, whisk brooms, drinks and treats.
Things were looking good inside and out. The sidewalks in town were being swept - no fooling, with brooms - and students were unpacking chalk and getting things ready for tomorrow.
And some of the Living Leaves I hung are still on the trees. Yippee!
Tomorrow I need to be in town early to help set up signs and block off the street. It is going to be so much fun. Big Mama Gayle and Her Sugar Daddies are going to play, along with a couple of other bands and Joe Mishkin will make balloon hats. Just wait until you see the pictures!
While I was working on dinner, back at home, the setting sun caught my eye when it lit up the fence in the back yard. It looked as if someone sprayed it with red paint. Cool!
I also made a batch of Stomach Pump Cookies for energy tomorrow. Everything is in them. Oatmeal, chocolate chips, raisins, walnuts. So yummy you'll eat too many and need ... you guessed it! A stomach pump! And I put all the right ingredients in, unlike the biscuits I tried to make a few weeks ago. You can read about that by searching this blog for "biscuits."
One of the students helping at Valley Art had the greatest hair. If I were 16 again, I think I'd try it. How about you? - femminismo
