Colouring Crew Clubhouse!

“Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon. A happiness weapon. A beauty bomb. And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one. It would explode high in the air — explode softly — and send thousands, millions, of little parachutes into the air. Floating down to earth — boxes of Crayolas. And we wouldn’t go cheap, either — not little boxes of eight. Boxes of sixty-four, with the sharpener built right in. With silver and gold and copper, magenta and peach and lime, amber and umber and all the rest. And people would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with imagination.”

~ Robert Fulghum

 

It’s Friday, and after my very busy week of psychic work I have a big night planned. Ben and the dogs are at the farm, so it’s just me to think about. Once upon a time, pre-lyme, a Friday night out would have involved high heels, alcohol, restaurants and bars, dancing, a celebration out on the town.

Not tonight. I have something better planned. It involves me, some friends, a table full of coloured pencils and crayons, colouring books and several pots of tea. Followed by homemade pizza and more colouring. There will also be gingersnaps, and ice-cream.

We might even do some dorky free-form dancing to ABBA or Queen, or Britney Spears, Lady Gaga or this:

 

Wild, huh?

Me and my crazy life…

Did I mention the dress code is pyjamas, onesies or lounge wear?

This girl knows how to party!

  1. Adult coloring books are the rage right now and getting together with women friends and coloring is the newest thing to. I just went to a book fair in Costa Rica and THE book store had a huge interactive coloring display for ADULTS, not children.

    • Thank you 🙂

      LOL, I was just at the supermarket buying ice-cream and pizza incredients. It’s school holidays here and the lady beside me in the checkout line asked if I was having a party. Yep, I said. A colouring party. Oh, she said, that sounds like fun Aren’t you a good mum! How old are your kids? I don’t have any kids, I told her. It’s just me and my girlfriends.

      I AM a good mum, I thought to myself as I put my groceries in the car. I’m the mum of me, and I need colouring in, friends and disco dancing!!! xoxo
