Weekend good stuff:

     A package from my parents with all sorts of delights: comics, lemon bread, salted nuts, chocolate candies...num!

     I finally finished rereading all my journal entries between August 1998 and December 2008...and my eyes are still in my head. Glad to have that finished, even if the retread has stirred up the desire to resume old stalled projects and have a betta again!

     Watched the last episodes of 'Enterprise' this weekend. Bittersweet, but what a blessing to get to enjoy all four seasons through Netflix!

     Saturday I was wide awake at 5:30 am and trying to convince myself to stop thinking of everything on my desk at work--so I'm grateful I could take a sleeping pill that night and sleep in Sunday morning.

     Got me some plane tickets to visit my family in April!

     Despite being worn out, I did make some creative progress this weekend. Most of my upcoming illustrations require buying something at the Vue store, but it was sure nice to trot off something comparatively simple and just portions of three days of work rather than three weeks. Based off the 'C.S. Lewis Song' by Brooke Fraser, and I'm looking forward to enjoying the wallpaper at work this week!

Goodness, that's a pretty wallpaper/image... I'm glad you're happy with it and that it didn't take you weeks. You must be quite chuffed with it! ^-^

Huzzah for packages and still having eyes! ^-^

Thanks! Yes, I'm happy with how well it matches what I 'see' during part of the song. =) And nice to have a short project for a change.

Packages are wonderful. So are functional eyes!

Sounds like a pretty good weekend, overall, except for the Saturday morning bit. I confess I can be a bit like that with work too, from time to time.

Good news about the plane tickets! I can see you're looking forward to it.

The new wallpaper is radiant! A great addition to have at work, considering how hectic everything has been.

Usually I forget about my job before I even turn my work pc off, but I could not get it through my skull that the interminable, awful week was truly over! ;P

Yes, it's nice to have it settled and know I'm going. Will be fun.

Thanks! I'll be enjoying it this week.

I like the new wallpaper. The clouds are so lovely. I need to try to
find a way to listen to the song.

So good to know you are enjoying the contents of the package. Great that
you got to sleep in on Sunday.

You are getting close to end of your journal reading, that must feel good.

Glad to hear you like it!

Yes, I had more of that delicious lemon bread for breakfast this morning.

Actually, I'm done with the journal reading. I decided not to bother with 2009 because it was so recent and I could probably find anything I wanted by looking at my posts here instead. Nice to let my eyes recuperate!

It was a lot of fun reading about our 2008 trip to Florida and all the great food Hilda made for us. Hope you have a wonderful time!
