This morning was my first shift at the food co-op, which me and Liam just joined. I prepped produce for the soup kitchen that they donate to, separating the usable from the non-usable. Don't worry, waste-haters, the non-usable gets composted! How great is that?! So it was really great to work with so many edible plants, just a great reminder of how wonderful it is to live on the earth and be able to receive its gifts. It was especially nice for me to work with veggies this week, as my fridge and freezer are broken and I am awaiting a replacement! It's been muffin and canned soup city in my house, which is kind of fun and easy but leaves me feeling a little like a muffin. I did run on Sunday though, and then again today so I am feeling alright enough about my nutrition and fitness levels. I take health pretty seriously! Did you know that I plan on living until at least 100 and wearing my high school prom dress at my 100th birthday party? It's a wacky silver dress from the 80's, tons of fun. I'll have to post a picture of that one day. Anyway, seeing as how my fridge is shot I could only purchase non-perishables from the co-op. Above is a photo of the loot I came away with. All those goodies cost me a total of $11.68!If you are reading this and you do not live in New York you may not be impressed, but my fellow Brooklynites will be excited by that figure.

Above is a photo of the treasures that my sweet Liam brought home for me yesterday from the farmer's market at Union Square. The boy knows that I like maple! He told me that they were for Kitty Mother's Day, which is the day after regular Mother's Day. How cute is that?! He is a fantastic cat dad, and I'm sure that he'll be a fantastic human dad one day :) 

That's some of what's going on with Taibi Mastelse. On the Taibi Time front, I have just listed lots of new books in my shop that I'm really excited about. Here are pictures of just a few of them. You can see all of the vintage books that I have in stock here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TaibiTime?section_id=10635788. I am currently in the midst of a studio clear-out project, and when my studio is cleared out enough to make some new work, I will start on a series for a show I am doing this summer at a coffee shop in Bedstuy, Brooklyn. I'm thinking of working with the theme of mermaids, but we'll see what happens. I should post pics of how my de-cluttering of the rest of my house went. It went pretty well, I think. My studio is just one of those spots that's like a clutter magnet, sort of like this one chair in our living room which I have taken to calling "the crazy chair." Everyone's got some equivalent of my crazy chair, right?
