A family tree I made for my best friend’s husband’s grandmother’s 90th birthday gift. She’s paying me. I’m not that close to the grandmother. But I do like how it turned out. I’ve done a few in the last few years – first for our wedding – but this is the first where I’ve gotten inspired to use colored pencils. I like how it turned out. I printed the names out on tracing paper and then cut and glued them to the drawing so there wouldn’t be any mistakes.

When there’s nothing else…a blurry photo of Piggle in a big cloth diaper will do. It will do very nicely.

Oh so happy. A bowl of Ndungu, a fresh chapati and cilantro carrots for dinner last night – courtesy of Kags. It was AHHmazing. I’m going to learn.

{Real}

The aforementioned Kags was kind enough to take care of the buddy while we went to see this film on Labor Day. We have not had a car for about a week now and, while making some things very complicated and stressful, has made a few things better than I ever thought possible. Like walking to church, for instance. We happen to live fairly close to a lot of the most important places: library, church, lake, prairie path, grocery store (it will do in a pinch), and…movie theatre! It’s not just any movie theatre. It plays a lot of great indie movies. We’d been wanting to see this one for a long time – since before it came out, actually. What made it even better was walking to and from down the prairie path in the glorious weather. I couldn’t have asked for a better date.

And the film was…everything I knew it would be. I loved every second. Yes, even the 20 minutes spent depicting the creation of the world. Actually, especially that. I cried through most of it. I can’t really explain why. I had the same reaction to The New World. It wasn’t so much the beauty of the film overwhelming me – although both were very beautiful. It was more that the film overwhelmed me with the beauty of the world. And the longing for heaven. That’s what I call a good film. Go see it if you haven’t.
