So tangentbot, over at his newly-rechristened blog, said that he updated his blog from Google Docs. I’m in Google Docs now, and I’m going to see if it’s really possible.
Yesterday (Monday) I sat down and figured out all of the stuff that was going on this week, and all of the work I needed to get done. This is going to be a very busy week, so please bear with me.
Yesterday was a rare Monday that Carrie didn’t have to work, so we spent the whole entire day doing Christmassy stuff. There were trips to many, may stores, including Cost Plus World Market, Paper Zone, Safeway (though that was just so we could get stuff to eat for the week), Urban Kitchen, Starbucks, etc. I’m certain I forgot some.
We also went out in the late afternoon and bought usselves a Christmas tree! Here it is, all set up with no ornaments and only halfway done up with lights:
Carrie made that really excellent cabbage, onion, and kielbasa pasta for dinner, then afterwards we made some Christmas cookies! They’re white sammitch cookies with a bright red filling. And they’re very sugary.
We also decorated in the evening whilst watching Grinch, Frost, and Rudolph on CBUT. So now the place is all decked out for Christmas, with only two weeks to go!
I have to go buy a couple more strings of lights for the tree, seeing as how a couple of them apparently burned theyselves out (which is why the tree is only halfway lit-up in the photo). Then later today we’ll put the ornaments all up on it. Thos ornaments’ll be all up in that tree’s grill.
I’m on a creative kick! Not only did I make cornbread muffins after I painted yesterday, but this afternoon I painted again! A while back I got a whole bunch of tiny canvases (4″ x 6″ — the size of photographs), and I went ahead and painted on one of them. Here’s what came out:
It’s based kinda on an old Gil Elvgren pinup painting, with some obvious Shane Glines influence. I think it’s super cute.
Hooray for me and paint!
