Dear Family, Don't Know What to Get Me for My Birthday?

I'm sharing my Wish list. :)

My Wish List

This is in the spirit of helping those who feel obligated to get me a present (you really don't have to; let's just hang out or go for a hike) but don't know what in the hell to get me. There you can find all the little crafty books I'm eye-ing. (Eying? Eyeing? Is eye-ing not a word?)

Sara Johanna in Iceland continues to be one of my favorite photographers on Flickr, not to mention one of my favorite painters.

It is pouring rain right now, so hopefully this fire will be out by the time the storm is over. Steve is worried about the grapes -- harvest is coming up!

burning fuel

I'm pretty much the most un-angry person you'll ever meet. Either that or I'm completely out-of-touch with anger and am angry all the time and simply cloak it with the great cloak of "No Problem-No Worries-No I'm Fine-It's Fine-No Really-Fine." Perhaps I'm mostly un-angry and sometimes wearing the cloak. Whatever.

So, when I actually do feel angry, it gets my attention. And what I like about feeling angry is that it is a great motivator to act. To do what needs to be done. Things come into focus and you can see, oh. This isn't right and it needs to be taken care of.

And that is a great gift.

And PS, yeah, I'm a little pissed.
