Sunday Evening


I know it isn’t much to look at but it is the makings of a trellis for peas.  It felt like autumn outside today.  It was nice but grey and and drizzly out there.  It felt good the feel the mist on my face while I worked on the one bed and it was almost as good as turning the dirt so I could get the trellis going.

Normally I would wait until St. Patrick’s Day until I thought about planting some peas but the gummy’s were here today and we had a little planting adventure.  Of course they had to climb in another bed so they could do some digging with their implements of garden destruction.

In other words, they were digging for worms.  They like doing it and they really enjoy finding them.  I dunno why they get such a kick out of it but what the hay.  Who am I to get in their way?  And I hafta comment that girls like finding worms so much cuz they like to eat them.  It’s usually followed by a ..

“Ewwwwww!  Grandpa, girls don’t eat worms.  Boys eat worms!”

Art Sunday #66: Tarsila do Amaral – An Angler


Tarsila do Amaral, (September 1, 1886 – January 17, 1973), known simply as Tarsila, is considered to be one of the leading Latin American modernist artists, described as “the Brazilian painter who best achieved Brazilian aspirations for nationalistic expression in a modern style.”  She was a member of the “Grupo dos Cinco” (Group of Five), which was a group of five Brazilian artists who are considered the biggest influence in the modern art movement in Brazil. The other members of the “Grupo dos Cinco” are Anita Malfatti, Menotti Del Picchia, Mário de Andrade, and Oswald de Andrade. Tarsila was also instrumental in the formation of the Antropofagia Movement (1928-1929); she was in fact the one who inspired Oswald de Andrade’s famous “Cannibal Manifesto”.
