Found - Camera!
It was on top of my refrigerator. This only goes to illustrate how much crap the top of my refrigerator accumulates - when I can't find a camera lying up there.
This little critter above can be found, if my door is unlocked, sneaking into my kitchen, sitting at the table and painting away. LOL. I was in bed this afternoon - tired from a lot of action today - and I looked up and there is a Filipino woman in my kitchen! Yoiks. I think she was grabbing a kid. I didn't even get up. I have 11 children in my yard. This is getting out of hand.
Before I feel sorry for myself, I marvel at the neighborhood feeling the kids are generating knowing no boundaries. And it feels good. Most of the time. I feel good NOT being the creature who comes home at dark, slips into the house, isolates, and goes back to work the next day! Food comes from the Filipino neighbor. Mutual babysitting from the navy family. Landscape advice on one side of us and he even edges our yard. We give him meat. We have a wonderful, homogenous navy neighborhood, that's one reason I love my city - diversity!
Isn't it the cutest kid though? And how could I refuse a budding artist? Oi - I have created a nightmare. I am the neighborhood art department and kiddie coral.
Tomorrow night I shall escape to my group of friends, La Bella Leonissi, and we shall paint and sip and snack and tell women stories and perhaps share primitive women tales - finding many commonalities. I just realized how many men call their women crazy when they (the men) are acting crazy - then we all began to tell our own crazy stories - the times men made us crazy and our wild female womanly abandon to the land of crazy concerning our men - and yes, tis true - we are a bit crazy. So, here's a toast to all us hot, crazy, beautiful women! Beware the lioness! But never forget - she will hunt for you and bring you nice warm food fresh off the hoof!
