you can fly!

All it takes is faith and trust
But the thing that's a positive must
Is a little bit of pixie dust
The dust is a positive must
You can fly! You can fly!
You can fly! You can fly!
you can fly! you can fly! you can fly!

it was a fairly laid back weekend, overall we kept pretty close to home. however, saturday I did get out for a few little adventures. after running errands I took lunch over to e's, then I met up with s&p and we checked out the annual clifton art and musicfest . it was a good time - the weather was perfect - at least while we were there.

after the the art fest, f (who had skipped the art fest to be a diligent worker bee) and I headed over to michael's bookshop to check out how things were going. the place was bustling and it seemed books were flying off the shelves. of course mike o'malley's article on the plain dealer's front page that morning helped bring in the people. michael jokingly remarked 'if only the plain dealer had featured the store on the front page for the last six months....' yesterday there was an auction at the bookstore for other book sellers. the store remains open until june 30th so there's still time to drop in and fill up some bags with some reading material!

we had some periods of really wild weather saturday evening and sunday, of course nothing like the havoc that parts of the midwest have been experiencing. I'm grateful for the rain, saves me from having to water. with all the rain the grass and flowers are looking most colorful and beautiful!

Colette Amelia said...

I agree with Bob that is totally wonderful!

Good to hear you are not waist deep in the big muddy.

I hear that Cleveland's weather has been as "quirky" as San Francisco's. Hey, you need to send those belly dancers east to Salty Miss Jill's.

love the murals....and more detail yet to post!!

tut - can you imagine having that at your house?!

ca - only as a country are we waist deep in the big muddy!

wat - mario was very, very cute... in fact the clinton art fest was overrun with hotties!

sou - great - and more to come! I never intend to buy anything but then sometimes I just can't resist...I got a great bag from linda's handwoven - perfect to hold the camera and much stronger than my current camera bag.

junk - quirky and mercurial!

ched - I love the drama of a good storm! transportation it is!!

We have a mural in our PO and the one you have shown is quite beautiful.

Thanks for the article. Having known 2 people closing their bookstores, it's a sad event always.

wow the mural is fantastic! and the message, too.

I love my dreams, that is, not on airplanes.

Happy summer, dear Mouse.
