Acoustic Sunrise Sunday

What a week this has been. Full of the not-so-fun parts of being a teacher: state mandated standardized tests, midterms, re-evalualuations, progress reports, ieps... whew! I don't know when I've been so glad for Friday. I spent all of Saturday puttering around in the Muse studio, getting ready for Dia de Bloglandia and the Cigarbox Shrine Auction. Here's a peek the the prefestival festivities:

Dia I

The skeletons have donned their finery.

Dia II

Getting ready to shake their bones.

Dia III

Ava's all decked out.

And now it's Sunday morning again, my favorite time of the week, and I'm the up in the studio, the only one awake, listening to REM and drinking coffee. Last night Mr, Al and I had long, cozy dinner with Ava and a friend at DiPalma's, our favorite restaurant, and today, after I put the final touches on a painting I've been working on for nearly a year, I'm going to enjoy this gorgeous fall weather and try to burn off some of last night's foccacia and breadsticks, by taking a long bike ride. Hopefully, Monday I will return to school recharged, rejuvenated, and ready for the new week.

Hope your Sunday was filled with art and exercise. Love Ava; she's divine! So glad I found your blog; another MS girl is always a fun find. I'm around Grenada and MS State is the GREATEST!! My DH and I have always been State fans; just the one youngest son who decided to call a mutiny on the rest of us. Oh well, that's what makes life interesting, right?! Good luck at school; anyone with enough patience to teach is my hero !

Ava whispered into my always attentive ear...that she longs to wear your fez.
i know, i K N O W !!
i told her gently that when you were finished wearing it she could have her turn.
she told me, she would of course, lend you her passion red flowers.
