Good morning! [Jun. 14th, 2005|10:42 am]

Good morning! Looks like another pretty day out today =)

I've been autographing & personalizing prints this morning, trying to catch up on email (I've fallen so far behind on non-order-related emails, but I'm trying!)

Now I'm going to paint though - I'm working on the piece with the warrior girl in the dragon's lair with big piles of treasure - it's going to be pretty darned cool......you can peek in on my webcam HERE!

After she's finished, I will have a couple of new projects, the first being a very large custom commissioned portrait with a lot of pets in it (rabbits, doggy, chinchilla, etc.) - ought to be fun!

My Aunt Hilda & Uncle Bill are arriving tomorrow - they will be staying with us during their trip to Orlando (her friend is getting married) - so I'm going to have a full house again, hehe!

It's fun having Amber & Chris live here - Amber's helping out with packing up orders right now, lol. They have found an awesome apartment just a couple blocks away and will be moving in next month, but in the meantime they're here with us! Amber has been applying to a lot of cool jobs - mostly outdoorsy nature/park ranger type positions. There seems to be a lot of that stuff around here.

I signed up for "Orlando Organics" today! Thank you jaimeee for mentioning it - I never knew it existed! Basically they get fruits and veggies from local organic farms, and bring you bags of it on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. At first I thought it seemed a little pricey, but then I realized that I probably spend that much on fruits & veggies at the grocery store anyways, and this way it'll all be organic and will help support local farmers. Probably a lot tastier too. It's kind of neat that it might be different stuff each time - sounds like fun!

All right - off to paint!!!

Cool! There is an organic program like that here, that I was going to sign up for (might still). I thought I'd get the opportunity to try different things that I would never know how to choose on my own at a store (and if it shows up in your box, you will find a way to use it, and might actually find something new you like! Which is super cool!)
I love HILDA!! What a beautiful name!

yikes! I hope you have a lot of bedrooms in your house, you're so popular!

Organic vegetables sound good. I wonder if they have something like that in South Florida? Off to google I go!

My sister came up with this idea....

Morning Jasmine, My sister loves merry-go-rounds, she came up with the idea of fairys on horses riding a merry-go-round, I wish I had the money to ask you to do a comission painting but I don't. I told her that I thought it would be difficult for you to draw horses with the fairys, I don't know what do you think? Hope you have a great day...Sharon

Have a lovely visit with hilda and bill. full houses...i have to be honest i grew up with such a big family that i enjoy my small family and privacy sooo much. so when people come i tend to stress...no matter how much i may enjoy it, i feel like everything has to be just so and i cant walk around my house in just undies when people are here. plus i like to keep my schedule the way it is. i think i enjoy having a boring old life but it doesn't seem so boring to me and that is all that counts. i enjoy seeing family and love having them, but i can only handle short visit i guess.

We have a lot of similar organic food coop delivery things here, one is Urban Organic, which I used for a very long time from way back in the 90's LOL ;-). It is a great way to support the local farmers who are practicing organic farming and through that, to protect the earth. Some other good things are that the food is fresher, since it's coming directly to you and doesn't need to be proccessed or handled or to sit around in a warehouse or supermarket. Also the food is picked closer to freshness since there is less time for it to spoil ... the produce in the supermarket is often picked much too early to give it time to ripen.

Some people believe there is an additional benefit, the urban organic coops often include various things only when they are in season, and many people believe that it is important to observe this seasonal availability thing when it comes to consumption. Also they include recipes and sometimes strange things you wouldn't ordinarily try on your own, but if they arrive in the box, you will try it since it's there and sometimes you can find a new favorite :-).

Enjoy !
