Yes, I am alive and well.
Kids are fine. 
Hannah has a pit stop here for a bit before
the big move to LA..
Any of you folks know of some AD or PD or PA 
jobs in film available let me know OK?
to non film folks that's
assistant director
production designer
production assistant

Cannot hurt to ask right,
you just never know,
though I am sure DD will cringe reading that,
roll her eyes and think "MOTHER!"

Ben starts filming his independent film next week.
I don't think that boy sleeps.

I've been "playing" at two of my jobs.
That's what it feels like. 
Am I lucky or what?
Today I taught the boss my secret recipe for 
painting, and she learned what a horribly messy 
painter I can be.
I removed my gloves, and my hands
 were still totally blue.
Black feet and blue hands.
It's delightful!

I've been gathering supplies for darling daughter's
new abode and they are piled in the garage.
She sold off everything in NYC via
Craig's list and a stoop sale.
A caravan of two cars will get her down, over?
there sometime next month.
Culver City is her new hometown.

They have a rather small space,
 and nearly no funds. 
Funny thing it is nearly 3 times the space she
occupied in  NYC!!!
...and two full size closets WhOo HoO
 I hope to show before and after
on here after she and I create magic.

Thank you for all your kind words 
and wishes for Annie.
She and Grandma Ruth are well, and 
thanks to the garage sale they have already demo'd
the floor (Thursday)and tile will be on there,
 before you know it.
She chose a beautiful faux wood look tile,
 that is AMAZING!
Their home is darling and tiny and all white.
I plan to do a post on it as soon as floors 
are done and kitchen cupboards are painted.
She is waiting to see how mine come out..
yeah, yeah I know ..
I've still not started..

OK it's Thursday night,
I'm headed to bed.
I've scheduled this for tomorrow morning.
So Happy Friday girlfriends!

Busy, busy, busy Z! Sounds like things are going well. Know we're thinking of you!

Kathy said...

LOL, the blue hands and black feet cracked me up. I accidently painted my feet blue once so I know how it can go!

It's nice to hear what you're up to and I have a daughter graduating college tomorrow who is in need of a job too. I'll be praying with you!

Ha, I'm black and blue too, but from building a theater set and dropping props on myself! Happy Mother's Day here at the end of it, hope it was wonderful xo

Tanya @ Bead and Needle said...

Never a quiet moment in your world! Nice to hear you are keeping yourself so busy these days...idle hands and all that jazz. Get some rest in between, Z! XOXO

Hi Z, I've just caught up and read your last several exhausting posts! Congrats to DD! My DIL is a casting director so I understand what it means to land with a feature film. I have found that very few places have a fridge in them- must be a CA thing. Rest up and maybe I'll run into you in Culver City sometime :-) Ann
