Say I'm the only bee in your bonnet/Make a little birdhouse in your soul

I found a pair of these shutters in my basement
they speak to me
Joe says they say
throw us away
I think they need to be repurposed
Joe has been showing Blaise
that it is fun to play quietly in his crib
because sometimes being alone
in the bathroom is so nice
My old train from 1973
on yr wall now
dear son
Painting the staircase
am thinking of wall decals for risers
or a poem
slow project

SusieJ has a great little valentines idea on her site. Well, Susie...My VDAY wish is that my sweetie will send me and my laptop to The Westin downtown and let me have a weekend of novel writing sometime this winter...That is my dream. I hope this dream also includes my mom coming up and watching the kids and him being able to have some free time too. I 'm nice like that.

My friend L paints empty picture frames and then staples thin fabric to the back, and uses them to hang her earrings on. She gave me one and I bought safety pins so I could hang my necklaces too. Are your shutters too big to acommodate your jewelry?

Wonder what Danny would do with the shutters:

...not to put to fine a point on it, say I'm the only bee in your bonnet.
I can't believe your reference to They Might Be Giants. I remember listening to them in the back seat of my big sister's VW Rabbit on the way to the beach--good times.

It's a simple message and I'm leaving out the whistles and bells... :)
