I'm so glad the cool weather finally rolled in (I hope it heads Brandi's way next!). Because it just isn't right for Sacramento to be cooler than Minnesota. My place refused to cool down last night, but I'm looking forward to some good sleeping temps tonight!
Happy that I noticed some color in the trees on my walk home today. There's one sugar maple in particular that will be fun to watch. And I saw a bluebird, too!
Delighted by a sculptor I discovered through a link at the Windstone Forums. Beautiful, affordable, unique fantasy critters that look like they came out of a dream--just have to wait until she gets PayPal set up for this here non-Canadian shopper.
Also pleased that I finally got Mountain-Frost's plumage right! Wasn't happy with it the first two times around, but today I at last came up with an acceptable version. Third time's the charm and I'm glad I didn't give up! (Yes, I know I only described her wings very briefly in Shanra's story, but my perfectionism was throttling me. =)
I'm also delighted that I was able to work out my strategy for the illustrations for part 3 of my avarii essay (part 2 won't have any, part 1 is done). It's wonderful because it ties in with both of the things at the top of my Poser list at present. I love it when I can use the same bit of tedious leg-work for multiple ends!
It seems Autumn has finally arrived with cooler weather then. Definitely good news.
I thought of you yet again today. It seems a pair of ravens have built a nest on top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and are raising three young, unofficially dubbed Snap, Crackle and Pop.
If your sculptor does set up PayPal, please let me know. I have a few pennies stashed away for just such an occasion.
Oh, yes! It's going to be wonderful the rest of the week. =)
*laughs at the names* I hope they fare well. Thanks for telling me! I went and looked them up in that little book you gave me, to see if your 'ravens' are in the crow family (they are).
You can view her work here to see if it matches your tastes. I plan to e-mail and see if she'll be willing to let me know when PayPal payments are available.
(I hope it heads Brandi's way next!)
Me too! The storms haven't officially come through yet, but they're expected to. Last night it was so hot in my room--(how hot was it?)--that I couldn't fall asleep until past 3:00 p.m. That was after that hard day of work in the theater, and after me taking 2 benadryl in an attempt to knock myself out. My poor body wanted sleep so badly, but all I did was toss and turn. Enjoy your cool weather!--hopefully I'll be joining you with that enjoyment soon ^_^
Have fun with your illustrations! You're certainly very talented at it. It's so fun seeing your hyarmi and/or avarii world come to life!
Ack! So sorry to hear about such an awful night of 'sleep.' I hope things get better for you! (Though I'm guessing poor sleep-deprived you meant 3:00 am ;)
Thanks! I'm having lots of fun, especially now that most of the most difficult/aggravating parts are behind me (for a while, anyway).
Nice try. That would take some significant climate change. ;)
Naw, I think the only thing that would work would be me winning some massive lottery (despite never buying tickets) with which I would live off of the proceeds and buy a house up in the mountains somewhere. Idyllwild sounds like paradise, but I'm sure I could find a tolerable place a bit closer, like Lake Tahoe. ;)
