2013 Seattle Pride Parade

Today was the big day.  Sunny and hot, and a ton of fun.  We got lots of cheering for the float.

Building a Float

I will be part of the United Church of Christ contingent in the Seattle Pride Parade this Sunday.  I am on the planning committee and I was in charge of building the float.  I will add pics of the assembled float at the parade in the next post, but here are images of the process.
Constructed, but not painted.

Library Closet Curtains

So Mom and I picked out the fabric for the closet curtains.  I fell in love with the fabric.  Mom needed help managing all the fabric, so I became the sous chef of sewing.  I held fabric, provided pins, measured, ironed and kept front straight from back, while Mom did all the sewing and decision making.  It went really fast, and I was able to take the curtains home the same day.  A few days later, I was able to get the curtain dowel and hangers from the hardware store, and Ed and I hung the curtains.  Without further ado, here they are.

The two pics my DH took have been enlarged onto canvas and hung on the walls.  The room is now complete and ready for your reading pleasure.

Kim's New Library

 I can't find pics of what it looked like before we started painting, but here are some pics of the process. We still need to get a comfy chair and a desk. But it is most of the way there.
 The start.

This Kid has it Together

Many of you know that I have been doing a lot of research on what the Bible really says about homosexuality, and how sexual minorities are treated in Biblical times. The video in the link below was done by a 21 year old gay man who had the same questions. I was amazed at how similar his conclusions are to my own. And he says it much more articulately. The video is 1 hr and 7 minutes long, but it is well worth watching.
