I am grateful for friends who give me projects. (1) These skirts have been on my To Do list for a few months and with Ase's Vegas trip coming I have the motivation to power through them-fibro be damned. The convention fees go out this week. These little pretties will add to the trip fund.
GirlyK gets her braces off a few months early.(3) She is my rule follower and often catches flack for it, but this time it works in her favor.
We’ve moved up in the world. The Wilderness is a constant contender for the Worst Air in the nation award. (3) This year we lost our #1 spot. We are only #3. It’s ok, there is always next year.

See how the air washes up the mountains like waves?
The Cheshire Cat head is coming along. (4) The first coat is the hardest, but I braved it. Now it sits and waits for what stroke of brilliance will hit it next.
This was my favorite Craft Day of the year. (5) The secret Mother’s Day gift. For our homeschool group, I have the Moms drop off their kids and between GirlyK and I we help them make something sappy and nostalgic. I love the look in their eye as they meet their Moms after, hiding the bag and sternly instructing them not to look. The pride as they leave. It is all the Mother’s Day celebration I need.

Of course the boys had a rehearsal for the spring Alice in Wonderland ballet. It has been a while since I’ve been able to watch Zany dance.(7) The cockles of my heart were warmed.
Tonight is Zany’s senior prom. (8) Of course he is going stag because he is so pragmatic. He has lots of friends that are girls, but none that he wants to spend that much money on. With his own idea of fun he will go, dance with all the single ladies-free and unfettered- true to himself.
The way the brain works things out in dreams (9).
The Wilderness has three seasons...
Medium: October- November and April-May
We are in the season of Medium. (10) Soon it will bounce between Medium and Scorching, but for today, I am sitting outside. Ignoring the air and it’s consequences on my sinuses and soaking up the sun and medium air.
