what a way to start it all, huh?
that's what i was thinking.
of course, while i had the kitchen cleaned up/organized while anna got ready for nannying next door, and after i got my shower, i sat down with freshly brewed coffee and looked out the window to a pale overcast. ah well.
(it's anna's handwriting, making sure i didn't forget the stuff to do today...what a list, huh? food.food.food. cleaning!)
confession: i had about 5 or 6 cups of coffee today. a good 3 or 4 from the two times brewing french roast, and another 1 or 2 of verona while waiting for them to get here, while i thought and wrote and thought and wrote. heh.
awesome points of today:
1. today, the owner lady at the cute, little, quirky, and busy restaurant in town called... and said that a woman walked in, and bought two of my paintings off the wall! you can't imagine how excited i was. my last (and first, for that shop) painting sold in late december. imagine excitement, huge smiles, plus 3 or so cups of coffee in me.
uh. yeah. excited:) hyped up. psyched. that was me:)
2. mrs. s emailed me, and my guest post on her blog is set for april 3!
3. i finished the first day of this bible study by liz curtis higgs that anna, heath, steph and i have started. (just. kidding. i thought it'd be funny to add it to the list;)
4. making stuffed shells. i think i'm in love. this is only the second time i've made them for the fam, but this time i made double because friends came over:) just thinking of the variations that could be made...man, you could live off the stuff. easily. it would be amazing. but i would miss lentils, curries, and all the other stuff we've made. like that cuban bean soup. mmmmm. i'm not sure i've even posted that recipe yet? it's worth making again --and soon. i need to do something about that.
sometimes it's quite apparent i love food.
*nods head. agrees with self*
not to mention: a great band, all around.
the ones i used were just some normal prang ones, and i mixed blues and greens to make lovely shades.
my only wish is that it was daytime when i did this--then the pictures would be sun-filled, not just indoor-light-orangey-toned. oh well. the watercolors are still watercolors. :)
