I've dragged it out long enough. It's officially official. Visual Journal #9 is having a wrap party. I always save the cover page for last and this morning that was finished. This means my mind must turn itself in the direction of Visual Journal #10.
In the meantime I continue to sit out back and fill up the pages of my writing journal. When I'm not busy taking a small bite of poetry I found in the novel I'm reading, that is…
Oh tenderly the haughty day
Fills his blue urn with fire
or studying kalanchoe thyrsiflora above and crassula arborescens below. Which I do every morning and evening.
It goes without saying that the days spent in the classroom leave me tired. But not too tired for a tivoed stack of House Hunters or Everyday Food or So You Think You Can Dance or Cash Cab, which lately I tune into more than the computer. I think television is FABULOUS with a capital F. Yesiree I do.
A new shade I sewed up with my stack of new Jennifer Paganelli fabric. It's fairly easy to make a blind like this without a pattern. Pillowcases to follow. Is it wrong to want the inside of Moss Cottage to resemble a candy store? That's a rhetorical question.
A Sunday museum class has me zipping all over LA lately. I begin 2 more professional development classes next week. And the senior member of the cat posse, Buck is being switched to a raw cat food diet. A grinder will be purchased and cat food production will begin in earnest if I can't find a cheaper source. If any of you have done this I'd love to hear about it.
