Fifty People, One Question: Brooklyn from Fifty People, One Question on Vimeo.
Once again my brother came thru with something cool. Seriously I love this idea. It really makes you think. My cousin Joy had a great answer to this and it made my remember all of the fun times we had as kids at Grandma Weaver's (Her Grandma) farm.
Where would I like to wake up tomorrow? I don't know there are so many places. For memories sake my Aunt Kae's house in the bedroom downstairs, summertime, windows open, smelling the fresh air, waking up to the jets fly over (yeah I know, but it is a throw back to my childhood), spending the day laying under the quilting stand, watching the needle and thread create a masterpiece, then to finish with homemade bread and jam.
Where would you like to wake up?

My Brothers are cool, they just are, I can't explain why. I am lucky to be related so I can be cool by association. We have a lot of common likes so we send links to each other when something catches our eye.
This morning I received this link from David. Now we are BIG fans of the book Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak . As a kid I would pour over the pages, reading and re-reading the adventures of Max. Drawn in by the illustrations that made me want to visit that far off place, so when the movie was announced I was a bit skeptical. Can they really capture the fantastical nature of the book? It wasn't even going to be animated. However this looks promising, plus with Arcade Fire supplying the music for the trailer it is a bonus.
Will I see it...just maybe.

I purchased some Daffodil's at Trader Joe's on Saturday $1.29 for a bunch. They were all tightly closed, but by Sunday morning a couple had bloomed. It made waking up blissful.
Now they have all bloomed and they smell delicious. They have made me want to be out and watch the season change to spring.

Message from Melissa:
I think I found your next bed set. It's very...you. I really like it!
Wow! I always thought that I was against flower bedding but I really like this one. It has the colors I like and Dahlia's. Plus I could incorporate into what is already going on in my room.
Oh if I weren't poorish.
See? Who knows her sister...who knows her sister? That's right! I know my sister!
So yeah, she possibly knows me better than I know myself. Anyway yesterday I took a trip to Pottery Barn to see it in person. Before I make a big purchase I like to dwell on it for a while. However I neglected to notice that it was an Internet only purchase. But the trip was not all in vain. I saw this Platter and fell in love. It was on sale...bonus. I couldn't resist it. I can't wait until the next gathering of friends.

My brother posted this link on Facebook today. You must check it out for a chuckle, especially if you have ever had the double exposure picture taken that was popular during the 80's or the school picture with the lasers.
My favorite is Wayne and Jeffery if you scroll down you will find two photos that made me laugh out loud. It looks as if they are terrified of the photographer.
Also there is a portrait of a kid with a turkey...was it taken at Sears?
Have fun perusing and maybe just maybe you have a photo that will rival what is posted.

I had seen this before a while ago, but my Brother Brian recently sent this to me and I thought I would share.
HEMA is a Dutch Department store and they are very creative. Click on the link and watch for a few minutes. If I lived in the Netherlands I would totally shop there all of the time, just because this is pretty cool. Their Computer Graphics/Marketing team are genius.

I moved into the Green. It was rainy soggy day but I was so pleased to not be living on the street at the time. It hasn't always been happy but the past 2 years have been very good.
I never thought I would stay this long in the Bay Area I was originally going to give it 2 years and now I have been here 5. Sometimes I think about moving closer to family just so I can spend my vacation time somewhere else. But I do love this place and really love it when I get to show it off.
I was reading this post I wrote a year ago and it wraps up how I truly feel.
The Green has hosted many friends and family and I hope that they have felt welcome and loved.

No one expects to get mail on Sunday but I was lucky enough to get a delivery.
I am sick again or still, I don't know if this is the same cold that never went away or just a new one. Oh Joy.
This morning I woke up in a fog, not being able to breathe, my head hurting, I felt that I needed to take it a bit slow. Awesome A-gril kindly offered to teach my primary class, with a little persuasion on her part, I returned to bed with a prayer on my lips for her. Taking over a primary class at a moments notice is not easy and this year I am privileged to have a few interesting children that make teaching a bit of a challenge.
She was thoughtful enough to take some cards with her for the kids to make get-well cards. It really brightened my day.
Now if this cold would go away, I could have a great nights sleep.
