Jasmine Becket-Griffith
A pretty boring day today - I got up early, and I've been answering email, etc. Making and packaging prints too - I had SO MANY to send out that were purchased while I was on vacation. Matt stayed up making them late into the night and then I still had quite a bit to do myself today, and a HUGE post office line on top of that - I was there waiting for a looooong time, and the guy behind me kept looking at his watch and SIGHing loudly when I was mailing everything out.

My sister Kachina's little guinea pig died, and that makes me very sad. She had him for 8 years and his name was Phoenix, and he looked like a baby buffalo. =(

It's hot outside today, low 80s, but it's kind of gloomy looking and overcast. The walk to the post office was strangely deserted, and it felt kind of melancholy.

I'll hopefully get some painting in tonight! I'm going to work on wobblesnorts's commission when I get all set up and ready!

Poor little piggie! It sounds like he had a nice long life, though. Gineau pigs are so cute.

Ugh, I HATE when I'm shipping a load of stuff and people behind me are acting all impatient. I sometimes feel like turning around and saying "yes! I brought all this stuff to ship just to spite YOU!!!". Sheesh!

Ah, poor guinea --but 8 years is a nice long time for one. She must have taken very good care of him. We lost ours a few months ago, due to illness. Broke our hearts --it's funny just how much you can bond to the li'l things.....

So sorry that your sister's lost her guinea pig. He had a long life and, I'm sure, a good one with someone who loved him.
