Lots of things to do today ... and ... Undaunted Courage

I didn't have much time to post today.... but this is what I did. I finished 4 turquoise faries and painted 4 bluebirds and 3 new kokeshi dolls. I will show you all tomorrow. I started making 4 baby carriages, but I hope to make 8 so if you want one and haven't spoken...
While I painted, I finished the last 4 tapes of Undaunted Courage by Stephen Ambrose. Amazing book! I learned so much. Read it, or borrow the tapes from the library. The reader is awsome! If you don't read the whole book, just read the introduction that Ambrose wrote. He talks about how he took his family, students and friends on parts of the Lewis and Clark trail every summer and how it became a family obsession that built wonderful family ties and memories. I you read that, you'll get a lump in your throat, and a few tears in your eyes, but then ofcourse you'll read the whole book!
