Busy times, as always!!!!!! [Nov. 5th, 2004|12:05 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Yesterday we went to Busch Gardens!

We'd never been there before, and it was really fun! Kind of a cross-between an amusement park & a zoo. Lots of rollercoasters, hehe! It's a very well landscaped, pretty park too. My little nephew Theodore (even though he's only one year old) even got to ride on a lot of things =)

Today though, I need to paint! Everybody else is at the Magic Kingdom today - I'm here catching up on email & getting print orders ready, etc. I've unfortunately had the flu for the past couple of days too, and I've almost completely lost my voice - all I can do is whisper and squeak =( I've been drinking a lot of Thera-Flu and eating a lot of vitamin C, echinacea, etc. It's not too bad, I'm just keeping my chin up and having fun with my family, and of course squeezing in art where I can =)

Anyways - if you would like to watch me work you can see me HERE on my webcam! I'm working on a new painting (don't worry, it's not as scary as the last one - LOL) - I'm not sure yet, but I think it will have a caterpillar in it........ (not an Alice caterpillar, hehe - the baby butterfly kind). Off to work!

last night i had a dream that me and flash were back down visiting you guys and we were on the little mexican boat ride thingy at epcot. it was diferent though, it kept stopping so everyone could get out and look at something and then get back on, at one point it stopped so everyone could go on a doggy ride, like sitting on dogs instead of horses, weird...anyways...i hope you feel better soon, i MAY have gotten rid of the cold i think i was getting by drinking the celestial seasonings wellness tea. watch now that i said that im going to wake up tomorrow as a giant blob of mucus :P

Thank you, Patty =) I was plagued with respiratory/lung problems as a child, so I'm extra careful with myself now!

My Aunt Jo took me to Busch Gardens when I stayed in Tampa a couple of years ago. It was so much fun, even for rollercoaster/ride phobic people like me :)

I agree - it's a beautiful place just to walk around in even without the rides!

I love Bush Gardens! It's so luxurious openly laid out which relaxes me. I bet Theodore is bigger now! Do show us pics of him occasionally please, he's so cute! Does he still look like you? :) Happy painting!

did you know that they came out with reports from the FDA or CDC saying the echinacea(among some other herbs) can actually burt your eyesight if taken to much.

by the way-hot gatoraide is awesome when sick to get all those electrolytes back into your body so that you are getting properly hydrated...hope you gets better jasmine

Thank you Jillianne!

Ah yes, I read that WHO report - they said it was on par with chamomile, gikgo, licorice, niacin and vitamin A, and some of the other B vitamins, hehe. Which is kind of perplexing, since vitamin A is also found to help improve eyesight. And of course, the same vitamins are essential for life and all too. I don't take too much of anything really - moderation is key. I take the echinacea & vitamin C in children's tablets, so I don't think the dosage is very high.....

The theme park/zoo looks good, did any of you go on that Shekra ride? It looked pretty good!

Aww :( Sorry to hear that you've been ill, flu is horrible.

New painting sounds good! Might have to take a peek hehe!

I went to that Busch Gardens when I was younger. It has the very first roller coaster I ever went on! Kumba! Which at the time was the highest, or the fastest, or something like that, and I was soo SCARED! I had been dreadfully afraid to go on roller coasters up until I finally made myself go on that one. Oh, and I LOVED IT!

Aw, I hope you are feeling better and the Thera-Flu is helping!
