Good morning, good morning

I had terrible dreams about school all night long =P

I don't have dreams in general very often, but when I do, they're usually very annoying. Like having to go back to take a class at school for some reason, even though I'm now in my twenties, and have a successful career that doesn't require a degree, and I already have a degree. So I don't know why Dream Jasmine goes back to school in these dreams, but it's sure annoying.

Lately, after the Daylight Savings Time time-switch, I've been waking up at 7:00am instead of 8:00am. I'm going to try to stick with it. I get a lot done in the mornings. I've been so busy lately, it's crazy - trying to finish up half a dozen projects at once, especially things that need to be done before Christmas, etc. In a way, I'm happy - I stopped accepting Christmas-deadlined commission work back in July, so I don't have to deal with last minute requests (just catching up on other stuff). My commissioned painting waiting list is now running two years now, so I won't have that problem until 2010, and probably not even then if things keep up.

Still fitting in time to do my OWN paintings too - in fact I'm almost done with a new WIZARD OF OZ themed piece. I'm going to do a series - kinda started with my Wicked Witch & Her Flying Monkey and will continue showing the various other characters as well. I'm going to explore some of the more obscure Oz books and characters too, not just the usual ones. That's the plan at least =)

Matt's still sleeping. When we were in London, we got used to going out for "Full English Breakfast" in the mornings, which Matt loved! So back in the States now, I make Matt "English Breakfast" every Sunday mornin. For the non-Brits here, an English Breakfast more or less consists of Sausage (But of course with us it is VEGETARIAN sausage, which is plentiful in England), Eggs, beans, grilled mushroom, grilled tomato, potatoes, and then tea & toast. In England they have a magnificent selection of Quorn brand veggie-sausages. But none of those have migrated to this side of the Atlantic yet, so I typically make him breakfast with Morningstar Farms veggie links, which are tasty, but not nearly as good.

Myself, I'm NOT a breakfast person. I have a cup of juice and a bowl of all-bran cereal with raisins every single morning, that's pretty much it. Ho-hum.

Oh! I just heard him taking a shower, I'll go start that breakfast now! Hope everybody is enjoying their weekend. I'll post tonight when I finish the new Wizard of Oz painting!
