The good stuff:

     An evening where I'm not feeling sick and not having to bail--yay! Got to do art and writing.

     Just finished up my illustration for 'The Secrets of Fynydov' this morning and put it in the story. It feels wonderful to have three story illustrations done in less than a month!

     The feeling of being 'rich.' I decided to sell some of my Windstone sitting griffin chick collection and to do it on the Windstone Forum to avoid all the eBay fees and rules. So I put up my sales post Saturday, not expecting that much action very quickly because everyone seems to be complaining about how broke they are in this economy. Well...I was wrong! A blessing from God--a small bidding war erupted over the two rare chicks in my collection, and I was answering PMs and updating the prices on my post every day, quite the flurry over my lunch break on Tuesday when I brought it all to a close for those two rare chicks. And a final sales price of $795! Even including PayPal fees and shipping, that is a nice profit over what I paid! Got the first payment yesterday, and I'll mail the chicks out once she makes her final payment by the end of the month. What a treat! Still have 3 chicks left to sell, but they are 'small change' in comparison.

     A fond farewell from winter in the form of a cold windy day yesterday and it being -2 to -6 F (-19 to -21 C) out there right now. Nippy walk ahead!

Nippy is totally not the word for it. That's freezing! Literally! I'm very pleased it's you out there rather than me.

Good news about your griffin chicks, but I feel a little sad that you are selling them in the first place. I hope there's not some bad news underlying that.

Glad to hear that you are feeling better, too.

Me too! ;) Seeing as freezing means no flooding, I'm glad for it!

Well, they just weren't meaning as much to me as I had thought they might, even though they're in a display case close to my computer. I'm much more attached to my PoadTM collection...though I am keeping my favorite chick. Not cut out to be a collector, I guess! ;) Except for PoadsTM, buying multiples of the same sculpt and trying to get every single color variety doesn't get me excited.

Thanks! Tomorrow I can start eating whatever I want again and not worry about IBS, yippee!

Well that I can understand. I'm not really much of a collector either. :D

I hope you have something particularly delicious lined up for tomorrow.

I'm too random. I 'collect' all sorts of miscellaneous art prints, sculptures, knick-knacks...but I'm not properly obsessive and methodical about it.

Might be going out to lunch with coworkers tomorrow, so that will count! =)

Glad to hear you are feeling better. I just went to check the new
Illustration. What is the place he is in? Looks huge.

Good news on the sale of the griffin chick. Hope you are able to sell the other three.
I am glad they are gone. Not my favorite at all.

It sure got cold again. At least it gives you break from the flooding.

Well, I can tell you that on the phone, but I'm not spelling the story out here! You read it last year sometime.

Two of them have bids, and if they don't go up anymore, I'll probably sell them early next week. It's just one that no one's bid on.

And it's going to be upper 40's to 50's all weekend! I hope the snow is all melted by Sunday evening since it will be 50's for Monday and Tuesday too. Quite the abrupt shift!
