breakfast & stress relief

today was the first day this semester (keep in mind that we are 2 months in) that i woke up early enough  (on time) to actually fix breakfast and sit down to eat it, rather than my usual grab-and-go (fruit snacks/granola bar/cheese toast&pb crackers).
i made myself 2 scrambled eggs, plopped them onto a piece of dry toast, and gave them a toast friend who had on strawberry jelly, poured a glass of milk, sat down at the table and ate breakfast. amazing.

after spending 2 hours painting and catching odd ends in the studio tonight, i found this huge piece of extra big bubbles bubble wrap... and WENT TO TOWN. i am beyond stressed about my show, so i needed a little relief. that bubble wrap was just the ticket... for about 4 minutes i was completely happy with just plastic, air, and fingers.

florence ring

when my eyes landed on this ring in the san lorenzo market, in the summer of 2008, i thought i would die if i left italy without it... so, i talked the vendor down from the original price of 40 euro, to a lovely 15.

this is the result of buying a ring in the summer... it's huge. and it falls off. constantly. so i have to be aware of my fingers!

a perfect end to a rainy week

it rained over 14 inches this week- only saw the sun twice.
nash took me fishing on friday afternoon.  he caught 3 fish. i caught a turtle. if you look closely in the 2 pictures of the pond where we were fishing, you can see a rainbow.

the definition of ghetto:

this is the 2nd cord (purchased in january of this year) i've had to have for my mac... as his father before him, his in-ards are trying to fall out... so, i made him a jacket... out of scotch tape... ghetto.

mom, dad, aaron, and aunt teresa came for the weekend- it was wonderful to have them here. i really wish they hadn't had to leave. it's easier to forget about all the crap bothering me when they are here.

i have tons of reading to do for african missions, an essay to write for my education class, and countless hours of art to be doing. i guess i should be productive.
