Party with Cake

It was a three-day weekend and I needed to celebrate ending the first week of school in triumph.  My students are (so far) brilliant (except for a boy or two) and I might even go to D.C. with them in May. (I might have to go; eek).

Anyway, I read about a cake (painting) exhibit by Paul Ferney called “Let them Eat Cake” that was being held today. I read the post around 5:45pm and decided to go — which was perfect timing since the exhibit opened from 6-8pm.  Everything went perfectly.  When I neared the building, I found perfect parking in the bustle of Valencia Street.  There was also a perfect thrift store nearby, which was closed, but noted in my head to visit in the near future. The exhibit was so perfectly sweet and I loved all the quotes and all the pretty paintings and I wished I could put them in my imaginary home.  I left the building with camera in hand, taking photos of random things, and my feet, and that’s when I happened to walk by an alley of murals.  I was thrilled and felt kind of like a dork to be excited about it. But I brushed it off and immediately asked a random passerby to take a photo for me.  :)
