Marie Masquerade

Good morning!!!!!

It's another beautiful day >^__^<

I spent all day yesterday catching up on paperwork - blah! =P

Today I'm going to get some sketches done for some commissions, and then probably work on my illustrations for the Aesop's Fables book!

I will be illustrating the following:

"The Fox and the Monkey"

"The Crab and the Fox"

"The Widow and her Little Maidens"

I'd like to get them all finished up before I leave for our trip next Wednesday! Yep, I'm going out of town again, lol. Up to Kansas City for a week - Amber/Chris' birthday, Fourth of July, Cousins' Party, family-visiting, etc. So I'd like to get as much done before I leave as I can!!!

Hey Kachina!!! Theodore left his little towel with the hoodie on it here at our house, hehe - would you like me to bring it with me next week?

Oh! I solved the Mystery of The Sprinklers! You see, we realized shortly after moving into our new house that twice a day dozens of little outdoor sprinklers just pop out of our front & back yard, seemingly like magic. They run for a half hour each time, which seemed like a lot to me, and there didn't seem to be any kind of controls in the house for them. I was kind of concerned about them - it seemed like a huge waste of water (especially since we typically have thunderstorms every evening here in Florida - no shortage of water!), and I kind of wondered how much this was costing me, lol. But luckily we found out that it's paid for by our homeowner's association, and that it's actually re-claimed ground water, so that's a really cool system!! And if we want to move them around or whatever we just have to call Town Hall.

Okay, I'm off to work - I'll post here later today if I start anything on my webcam =)
