back by popular demand

Today I got my car washed and waxed at Delta Sonic. I was able to get gas for the low low discount price of $3.98 a gallon. I sketched these two ladies in the waiting area.

I decided I need to spend more time sketching people. I don't do it much. I think a great place to sketch people would be at the Starbucks in Target. The people in Target are becoming more and more like the people in Walmart. It would be fun to sit there in Starbucks and draw the people who are standing in line at Target. I know just the place.


Some people really seem to believe that everyone else appreciates the smell of their stinky perfume. They cake it on before leaving their house and then spread their fumes throughout the atmosphere. There should be some kind of a public service announcement against this.


Today I had my first frappuccino of the season.


It's taken me a while to get things back in order since I got back from Japan. I think I'm finally back to normal now. Whatever you want to call "normal."

I've been fighting a persistent battle against the indian meal moth, which entered our house through a bag of birdseed.

I've been helping George out while he's been dealing with persistent headaches. Thankfully, they greatly subsided over this weekend. He had a spinal tap recently to have his fluid tested. His fluid is fine.

I've also been ripping weeds out of our landscaping. I realized after we bought this house that all the pretty landscaping in our front yard doesn't take care of itself. I had a major spasm in my back last week after all that raking and hoeing.

I spent a bunch of time putting videos of my trip to Japan on DVDs. I learned how to use iMovie and iDVD.

And last week I made this page of affiliate ads for my website. I am so psyched that I finished this. It was a daunting task that was hanging over my head for so long, but another friendly shopkeeper had a template that I used for the page. If any of you want to make some $$$ by linking to me, you can by becoming a Cafepress affiliate.

Hopefully I'll be blogging more.

I'm back in the USA.

Not too much has changed around here.
