rainy saturday. i’m relishing these gray winter days in southern california. love the softness that settles around the cottage on days like this. like a worn soft blanket. i think i would not object to an entire month of it. maybe a few days here and there of sunshine.
how much does the sun shine in the pacific northwest winters? i needaknow.
i’m rarely on IG these days. i deleted the app from my phone. i was wasting too much time when i wanted to be reading and journaling and sketchbooking. i’ll still use it for traveling…i think. or posting videos. or something. on all these matters i reserve the right to change my mind.
my social media of choice for the last decade has been blogging. it’s always been a good fit for me. but i do miss seeing some of your feeds. so i visit IG once a week or so and spend 10-15 minutes catching up. saves me HOURS a week that i’m blissfully grateful to have back. i know lots of people that have done the opposite. stopped blogging because that took too much time, and use their IGs like micro-blogs. whatever works!
anyway i was on hold dear’s account – michelle geller and saw her registered mail stamps. i had this wild desire to paint all of them. not from a photo
i wanted to touch the old paper and have a big pile to sort and rummage through. so i proposed a barter to michelle which she kindly accepted. thanks michelle!
now i’m planning to paint every last one of these labels. by that i mean i will paint at least 10. maybe 9.
speaking of painting labels. if you’ve tuned into my posts for awhile you might remember that i used to sell hand-painted quirky labels. i’ve been meaning to offer them up as a freebie, but just haven’t gotten around to it. i’ll be putting them up as a download so check my blog footer in the next day or so. i won’t offer any sort of tech support, answer questions, or be gracious and polite and helpful or NOTHIN’. just giving them away and if you want them you’ll have to put on your thinking caps and do all the heavy lifting yourself.
you don’t have to jump through any hoops to get them except the i-will-not-look-a-gift-horse-in-the-mouth hoop. k?
and now let’s change subjects shall we. let’s talk about deep space and television.
i’ve been a fan of this california poet for many moons. i was looking through my photos for a good pic to go with this line from a poem. and i couldn’t find one. but it’s so lovely i wanted to share it anyway.
oh oh oh. the beauty of those words.
baskets. just do it. here are the reasons: zach galifianakis & louie anderson. gawd.
you’re watching marvelous things. i know it. you’re eyes are feeling heavy. you’re going to tell me. you’re going to tell me everything.
