Relaxing With Tibetan Masks

Sunday, April 27th, 2008

Carolyn’s Days of Relaxation continue.

In no particular order – except maybe the obvious. Today, I read a lot. Two really good books. I’ll have to blog about that later, however. I slept until I wanted to get up. I emailed someone who I’m really, really hoping I can afford to have fix the parts of my website I just don’t have time to deal with anymore. I replied to some other emails that have been lingering in my email box. I daydreamed about the historical that’s due in November. Took my son, nieces and nephews down to the neighbors to feed the horses apples and carrots while the sheep were being sheared. Wandered back to the house and made lunch. Made cookies for lunches this week. Took the Darling Child to the Antique Faire (it was way too hot for both of us) and bought these:

Tibetan Demon Mask, Blue
Tibetan Demon Mask, other

They are Tibetan demon masks meant to protect one’s home. They are now on duty in my room. This particular dealer is from Santa Cruz and he’s been coming to the Petaluma Antique Faire for the last couple of years and he always has the neatest stuff very reasonably priced. Those two masks were $60 for both. Reasonable for me. Now, for all I know he made them in his garage, but I don’t think so. Besides, years ago I decided that when I buy stuff like antiques, I would never ever buy anything I wouldn’t still like if I found out it was fake. That’s been a good policy because it keeps me from buying stuff I will eventually dislike looking it. This works really well with furniture. I like my demon masks. I have three now.

I also bought a Himalayan bell which, if I can stand to part with it, I will include as one of the prizes in my Wicked Cool Stuff contest. It’s brass and awesome. I’ll be announcing the contest shortly.

Lastly, before I sign off for the night, tomorrow I have the day off and I’m getting a facial and a massage. And hour and a half massage. Oh, heaven. Yes. I will be imagining cabana boys.
