The only thing that can take the bitter sting out of the ice storm we got last night, (I won't bore you with photos, I'm sure you've all seen enough ice for the year!) is the fluffy pinkness of grocery store carnations.
At $1.99 a bunch I can afford to chase the gloom and think of sunshine and warmth and all things spring.
Earl saw me photographing these and commented that he assumed I was posting a bitter rebuttal to the winter weather. Oh yes, the man knows me well.
On another subject I thought Iwould show you what has been taking up so many hours that I can barely keep up with blogging. Oh yes, it looks innocent enough, but when you're learning, it is hours of diddling around at the computer. The assignment was to illustrate a video game or comic type character, based on ourselves, that told something about us. I sew, of course, so here I am in all my superhero glory. I want you to know this is an exact replication of what I look like. Really. I have an outfit just like the one I'm wearing in this illustration.
And I'm that skinny.
And thimbles shoot from my fingertips.
Sometimes I crack me up.
