Is this thing on??
Was the sky the same blue over there by you as it was over me today? Because it was BLUE. It was bluer than blue. It was the perfect shade of total and endless blue, cloud-free, sun-shiney blue, the kind of blue you wish for every day, the blue of my husband's eyes, yes, that blue. Electric bluegaloo. Coo coo cachoo! Ka-blue-y! An overhead explosion that removed the clouds, the jetstreams, the birds, the cirrus wisps and cleared the sky for miles around, Ka-blue--mm!
It was like that ALL DAY. Martin and I walked for half an hour, tripping over sticks and narrowly avoiding the dogdoo minefields around us because our heads were tilted back into the sun admiring the heavenly blue. There were tiny buds on branches, sproingily springing against the blue. There was blue reflected in the paper-thin coating of ice in the soggy marsh. We exclaimed over the perfect sky and twirled in circles to check again, disbelieving the evidence of our eyes, "do you see? it's all around!"
And what else was blue today? The Finnish hockey team, that's who! Sad and blue because the yellow-and-blue KICKED THEIR BUTTS! Wahoo! Heja Sverige!
Katie Melua in concert is even better than Katie Melua on CD. I am stone in love.
The muse struck today: I worked in my collage book for the first time in AGES. That felt good. But I just realized that our new scanner is smaller than the book. I can't scan in 1 piece like I could with our old flatbed. Wah! Upon looking at it again, though, I don't think I'm done with this page, although I thought so earlier. It's getting too late (and it's too dark now) to do much tonight, and I'm out all evening tomorrow, so we'll see how it goes later this week to finish it up and try scanning it.
