coo coo ka choo part two
as it turns out, i did not sit on my front porch staring at the yard sale all morning! after my curiosity was satisfied, i went for a fifteen minute run (in the process of easing my shocked body back into the task), strapped on the sandals and walked downtown where i spent a sunny and funny afternoon with ricë freeman-zachery and her husband, earl, who zigzagged their way through lawrence on their six week art retreat/book signing tour of the US! i also got to meet two terrific local mixed-media/fiber artists, traci bunkers and kelly buntin johnson. we wandered up and down mass street, in and out of shops, made a pit stop at the brewery, went to au marché for christopher elbow chocolates, and took a detour to the coo-coo-ka-choo house, where i got to prowl in the back yard this time. the only bummer of the day was that i had to miss out on the tour of traci's studio. but my time was up! the girls were at home hopping up and down like pogo sticks waiting to go to the grand opening of the outdoor pool. so i returned for my charges, stuffed myself into my swimsuit and off we went into the land of aquatic chaos. they wore themselves out swimming and i wore myself out daydreaming and gawking at the sparkling sky. couldn't have asked for a better day!
