101/ #68 - Sidewalk chalk

Without art, the crudeness of reality would make the world unbearable. ~George Bernard Shaw

I almost forgot to mention that I had the chance to do some sidewalk chalk art over the weekend. We went to a friends house on Saturday night, more his friends than mine, and the kids brought out the chalk to color the concrete patio. I didn't draw anything important, a cat and a baby and butterfly. But it was fun, regardless.

Although I had a good time I was slightly torn. Between standing with my husband who was visiting with all the guys gathered around the grill or all the mothers who were gathered around their children. I was naturally drawn to the mothers and the kids. I wanted to watch the kids too, but I felt a little self-conscious doing it when I had no kids of my own to tend.


  1. i love pavement fact, any kind of street art is a love-thing for me!

    Stopping by your blog from the NaBloPoMo site, and am definitely going to make a swing past each day to see what you come up with!

  2. You and your list... so organized! LOL

  3. I have a feeling the kids had a blast having another adult to join their fun! I love sidewalk chalk and coloring lol It somehow brings out the child in you and its so relaxing. Weird, huh? Have an awesome day!

  4. Didn't you draw that 'I heart Jeremy' up there?

  5. I DID draw that..but it was a few years ago. I think it was our 6th wedding anniversary.
