Nest Feathers and Twine - Formally Artist's Block Studio

The things that make a house a home and the stuff that holds is all together.

Years ago I started this blog with a mindset and goals that I have found have changed direction over time. I am excited to say that this blog has a new name.....Nest Feathers and Twine. I hope you come by and visit often. Feel free to get comfortable and kick off your shoes and join me on this journey of metamorphosis.

The end of the day..........

My bed is calling for me........what a busy day. It is tradition in our family that the birthday child gets a day off of school. They get to spend the afternoon as an only child, something they love since there are 3 of them. My almost teen son and I spent a bit making his cake together, being silly.......that is such a hard thing for me to do......since I am always such a serwious person! We did the Pam can (cooking spray) can-can and sang shake your booty............he would so totally die if he knew I told anyone! I wish I had a video camera going to video him in his boxer shorts with his body all contorted, his lips all puckered up, shakin' his groove thang! (what a thing to show a future girlfriend......just kidding, I would wait to do something that motherly cruel until he was married, or at least engaged!) I horrified him at the store while he was present shopping singing .......let party, like its your birthday....... (quietly, I am not that cruel) and dancin' a bit. He is my serious one, I love him just the way he is, but I would like to loosen him up just a bit! This morning when he came downstairs to play his video game I sang 'Happy Birthday' to him, he looked at me, asked what time he was born and quickly calculated EXACTLY how much time until he was officially 12, and said I could sing to him then because it was not officially his birthday yet. His seriousness (is that a word?) cracks me up! He does have a sense of humor, a very dry one at times, and he catches you off guard with it!

This was such a fun day, last year on his birthday he and his daddy went out while I was with my family making funeral plans for my dad.

I also started a second Yahoo group today! My first one is a small private one, this one will be open for any and all to join I am really excited about this and am hoping it is a success. I will give info on it tomorrow, right now my fingers and brain are not connected and I have spent more time hitting the backspace key to correct my boo-boos than what I have spent actually typing words and sentences that make sense!

night, night, sleep tizzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
