I'm pretty thankful for stacks of Sunday dishes, even in all their dirty, because it's a pleasant reminder of the good people that come your way...


And, if you've a mind to, check out this Picture & Poem project.

This week started with an afternoon of kitchen play and a perfectly small Sunday Supper extravaganza. Every week should begin with a fried apple pie, or three.


It's not over, but the week is wrapping up nicely. Today I received official news that my poet friend, Tom McCauley, and I received a fellowship from The Union for Contemporary Art here in Omaha, NE. This fellowship provides us with a free studio space and a stipend for 6 months, beginning in February. We've been toying with a collaborative book project for awhile and now we've been given some incredible resources to help see it through! Along with our own personal works, we'll also be initiating a community-based project with a group of kids in North Omaha, but more to come on that. There are a lot of logistics to work out with this venture but we're both really excited and thankful to have this opportunity to learn, explore, create, and give back!


Pause future talk, the week has been productive. I acquired a new accessory (see below) and reaffirmed that cafeteria lunches still need an overhaul; I spent the day sorting through a million high school drawings.



Here's to packing your lunch, and to fine winter nights.

For several months now Sunday evenings have been reserved for "Sunday Supper," a small event that brings food and friends together. 
It's a group of fine, fine cooks &  lovely, lovely people, which means a wonderful way to start the week.

So glad that the very first day of this brand new year just so happened to fall on our gathering day...

The before.

and the after.

 There were new faces, old faces, and the usual star of the show.

Here's to the new on day #2.
