Snapshots from Sunday

June 3, 2012



Sorry to be extra MIA lately.  You wouldn’t believe how hard it is to write a post without a good working computer.  This decrepit Dell laptop has made the time it takes for me to write a post increase by about an hour.  And that’s just the time it takes for my pictures to upload and Windows Live Writer to open.  The only trade off is that I actually get to use WLR.  I miss it



I went to breakfast with my mom and sister this morning and had a giant Cafe au Lait.  In other words my brain is moving a mile a minute right now and I can’t stop moving.  Upside: my bathroom, microwave and kitchen countertops are very clean.

And I had plenty of energy to spend walking around at the Chalk Art Festival.

IMG_4267 Told you.


If you’ve been a reader for a while and saw me post about this event last year, you might remember there was one like this where they warp the actual drawing to make the reflection have the normal proportions.

I have no idea if that sentence made any sense.  But my caffeinated brain can’t spend any amount of time rewording it. 


Fact: It’s hot in Denver today.  And shade feels extra good.



See those pants?  I went shopping for regular old boot cut jeans last weekend and left with skinny turquoise capris.  Typical.

And this picture turned out to be highly disappointing.  Wah, wah.


Favorites included this one.


This one.



This one.

IMG_4274 And this one!


For obvious reasons.

Now if you’ll excuse me, someone just exploded a green chicken chili burger in the microwave and it needs cleaning.  Again.

Happy Sunday!


What did you spend your Sunday doing?

Which picture is your favorite?

Do you have any outdoor art festivals like this where you live?

    Looks like you had a blast! I love chalk festivals and chalk art… it all looks so real, I can’t believe people do that sort of thing with just chalk!

      It’s incredible isn’t it? I think hopscotch is the only chalk ability I have 😛

    Love the chalk drawings! They are amazing, my baby sister is in talented art I may have to get here over to decorate my patio, lol!! We spent Sunday being super lazy. We had what we call lake bash on Saturday. It is a “concert” on the lake. They pull a brage out on the lake, or the swim area, and have local bands playing while you “party” in the water. Great time!!

      Awesome! My brother is a really talented artist too and I always wonder why I didn’t get any artistic genes. LA has the best activities. My mom just got back 🙂
