New Painting

I actually did a new painting the other day! This is the first painting I've done since college (almost four years ago) that I've actually been please with. Hooray! We hung it in the kitchen.

More Pictures

Hot Pink?

My highlighter pink cast finally comes off on Tuesday. Here's one last look at it.

Also, I gave the blog yet another makeover (obviously) and posted this new picture of
Doug to celebrate.

Josh's Turn

We set up our white backdrop and studio light for some more photos. This time, I had a much clearer vision of what I wanted and I made sure the light was just right before we started. And... we did it all inside because it's three thousand degrees out. The photos of Josh turned out great and I'm getting excited about doing this more often when I have normal use of my feet again.

Garden Update

Our vegetable garden, I'm very sorry to say, is not doing particularly well. Everything has come up out of the ground and looks green, but it's stopped growing. It took me a while to realize it wasn't growing as well as it should because we were dealing with my foot situation for a hundred years (I finally get my walking boot a week from Tuesday). We've had a really rainy season so far, and other people with gardens in the area have said their gardens aren't doing as well as they'd hoped either. Plants can get too much water....especially when they're young. Anyway, I'm trying to be proactive and figure out ways to help the garden. Today, I finally made it out to the garden and thinned the sprouts, choosing only to leave the strongest little plants. Here's one of the weaker carrot sprouts I pulled. It looks like a carrot! That's a little encouraging. And there is new growth on the cucumber and green bean plants....also a little encouraging. The next step now is to add organic fertilizer. I ordered some Liquid Fish and Liquid Seaweed that are supposed to really help the little guys take off. We just have to wait for all this rain to let up before we can feed it to them. Wish us luck.

So much rain. You can't really see the sprouts in the picture...I apologize.

Yum. I'm not looking forward to the smell of this stuff.
