Now for the real update...

Well, dinner at Grandma's went well on Friday. Tyr helped mom with her stereo - well, tried anyway. Grandma made some wonderful beef stew (some of which I have for lunch today..yum!). She had me set up the card table in the living room. Heh. It was interesting...never had her do that before. Tyr told me that his grandmother is the same..and that even one of my grandma's pics looks like his grandma. How scary is that? (Grin). He claims its a universal grandma thing.
Saturday he had a headache, so the morning was spent with him on the couch and me cleaning and cooking. I made some beef stew in the crock pot - so cooking was easy :) I got the kitchen clean, and some laundry done. Domestic. God. In the afternoon, we left for Jake's house. I called for directions, and as Jake's house is out way in the boonies (and I do mean boonies..and way out there)..the directions were well, somewhat difficult. Tyr got irritated with me for my navigation skills - or rather, lack thereof. However, had I been aware that I needed to be aware of gas and such - then perhaps I could have been more prepared. I knew how much gas we had, I had given him the directions as they were told to me...but, I also have no concept of distance and how it relates to gas. I don't think in those terms, I guess. Thankfully, we didn't run out of gas. Tyr's irritation soon faded. (Thankfully)

Beautiful

I was looking at some pictures, courtesy of rayce. She has a link to her website. If you haven't seen, you should take a peek. I haven't looked through all the galleries, but I made it all the way through the 'people' gallery. I left her a signature in her guest book, but felt compelled to post in my journal too. The work is absolutely beautiful. I especially love that she used your average person for the model..no typical 'supermodel' types here. Its nice to see that others find beauty in people other than Cindy Crawford look alikes - or barbie wannabes. I have nothing against skinny or thin women...just the idea that you *have* to be to be beautiful. Or that you have to fit a preconcieved idea of what beautiful is. Most people don't fit this idea. Does it mean they aren't beautiful? Hell no! Rayce's models are a prime example of that. I don't think any of them fit society's preconcieved ideas of what it is to be beautiful..yet, they are very beautiful. And Rayce does an excellent job of bringing out the beauty of their individuality. Thank you Rayce...for reminding me that true beauty does exist...and that others see it.
