Who doesn't love a crafty day? =) these are the days i live for, I think...he he...well, family days, too. Z has a 3D animation class Saturday mornings, so I laze around, make coffee, pull out the latest project and putz around. Sooo fun. (I mean, I still do that when he's here, too...lol). It's just a little different - I love to be alone. Odd, yes. =) I like to play my girly tunes loud and sing to myself and spread ironing boards and papers all over.
Today, my morning has been full of rich Colombian (thank you! ;)..)coffee, a new card design that's about to be printed, a trip to the library for some home decorating magazines - need them as inspo for some paper I need to draw today...(he he...sssh.) It's for a super-secret place, right now...he he. I have a bank appointment, but that's the only necessary evil today. I am going to draw some earring designs. I am going to play with shrink plastic. I am listening to some fab new songs I found - "Where I Stood" by Missy Higgins, "Sunset and Car Crashes" by The Spill Canvas, and some old stand-bys: The Sad Little Stars and City and Colour's "Hello, I'm in Delaware." (And those who asked about the song playing here, scroll to the veeeery bottom of the blog - "Samson" by Regina Spektor is the first must listen-to-it-over-and-over tune.)
Oh! And we watched "Rendition" last night - Love me some Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese. Is he a sexy analyst, or what? lol...anyway, the movie was great, but it was seriously disturbing that this 'rendition' law actually even exists in the USA - pretty much, the US government can deport and make people they suspect with no actual evidence disappear from the face of the earth if suspected of terrorist related activity. They literally delete records of people and take their identification and ship them off to underground torture prisons around Europe for interrogation. Disturbing. We watched a documentary that was also on the dvd, and I just can't believe it; the guy who implemented the program says that they do not condone torture, but what they need done can not legally done on United States soil - totally contradictory. Argh! Makes me so mad...I'm so happy I live in Canada!!
Anyway, sorry to leave you on that note! lol...go listen to some Missy Higgins, I promise it will make you smile...=) Happy weekend - enjoying sunshine, crafting, hugging your family..whatever you may be doing! Blog winner announced tomorrow - I'm waiting til Paislee announces, but I know who won! he he....Happy day!
