Thankful for Art Supplies and Unexpected Gifts

Chalk is Good

While I was having my morning coffee with my husband a friend called to say she was stopping by to drop something off.   Her husband had recently been hit by a car so I have been leaving lots of fluffy chalk messages on their driveway; to (hopefully) add some cheer to their life as they go to and from the doctor appointments.  She had a heavy box in her arms and a wide smile on her face.  She was giggling “Open it!  Open it!”   The box held endless possibilities.  A rainbow of color.  Chalk is good.  It’s not a major commitment like pen, or acrylics, or (gasp!) oil paints.  Chalk is fit for public consumption.  They call it SIDEWALK CHALK for a reason. 


I am thankful for the time I spend with friends, I am thankful for art supplies.  I am thankful when I get to combine these two in any fashion.  Happy Thanksgiving!

I was the turkey all along!

About K.P. Rennie

I generally only write reviews about books that I am inspired to read more than once, so my book reviews aren't about new releases that I liked, they are about tried and true books that I LOVE. I favor quirky stories, inspirational memoirs, and real life drama. There are many movies and books that I have enjoyed more than once. If you liked any of these, we probably have similar taste- Books: Peter Pan, Choke, A Life Without Consequences, Fight Club, The Adderall Diaries, Lets Pretend This Never Happened, The Glass Castle, Another Bullshit Night in Suck City, Wild, The Tribes of Palos Verdes, Just Kids, Movies: Little Miss Sunshine, Seven Psychopaths, Ghost World, Pulp Fiction, Hook, Big Fish, Reservoir Dogs, Moonrise Kingdom, Being John Malcovich, I am President of The Fun Zone; The Center for the Study of Funism.
