Big Fat Tears

Why am I crying?

Well, first are the tears of sadness. I went to see the movie Bridge to Terabithia last night.  I didn’t even bother to try to wipe away the big fat tears rolling down my face.  I recently read the book, and I thought the movie was a beautiful adaptation of a wonderful story.

Second are the tears of joy.  The book is nearly done.  I have some photographs to add and a little bit more proofreading to do.  I have definitely taken it down to the wire, but I think I’m going to make it.  This is one of the reasons why I like the fact that I am printing them on my own, and printing them on demand.  I do wish I had made myself stick to the schedule I made several months ago.  I intended to be done with this part close to 3 weeks ago.  A lesson for the future….

And last — the start of the running eyes thanks to the fact that it is Spring!  I’ll try not to complain too much yet about my allergies, because I am very much enjoying seeing the green grass and feeling warm again.  My husband is actually wearing shorts today!

We started talking about a summer vacation today.  We are thinking about the Grand Canyon and other points of interest in Arizona.  We are contemplating a cheap flight into Las Vegas and a rental car.  Mark wants to see Hoover Dam, and I know that we could probably spend at least 2 weeks exploring.

OK, I’ve got to get back to work, but thought I’d post a quick update.  After staring at the computer for hours working on the book, I haven’t had the energy to try to post anything on the blog.  You should be hearing from me more this week, though….maybe even with actual quilt and art related content!

    Oh my daughter wants to go see Bridge to Terabithia, guess I should make a date with the teen to go do that 🙂

    I’m soooo excited about the book! I can’t wait til you put it on the market (I really need a copy of it)….I sooo love your techniques 🙂

    Hope to see you posting more again soon 🙂

    We went to Grand Canyon last year and I can’t say enough about how wonderful it was. Our only regret is that we didn’t have long enough there. We definitely want a return trip.

    Yeah for you!! I know you can’t wait to get the book out and about. Wish I were going to MQX to meet you and get your book. I’ll just have to order one…
