Holy cow!

It's November 27. And it's been 20 days since I last posted to this blog.

It's not that I haven't been doing anything. Far from it, in fact. Traveling. Visiting friends in Long Island (and could someone PLEASE tell me why New Jersey is called the Garden State? I just don't see it). Then home for ONE day. Then to Door County, Wisconsin, to visit in-laws.

What a hectic few weeks it's been.

I managed to fit a bit of drawing in, but that's about it. So I'll post some pictures here, just so I can feel like I've accomplished something.

Communication. That's what it's all about. I created this ACEO and received several comments, all from women, about how true it seems. Apparently I'm not the only wife out there who's having trouble being understood...

Check it out on eBay:

Missiles and Toads
My husband and I don't speak the same language. Oh, he'll tell you he's speaking English,and he might speak it when he's around other people. But when he's talking to me it's in some dialect I don't understand

I've said for years that my side of the conversationusually just consists of, "What?", "Huh?", "What did you say?"

I don't think he can understand me either, though.I think I'm speaking clearly. E - NUN - CI - A - TING everything just as it should be. But he doesn't understand.

Maybe it's not the clarity of the speech at all.Maybe it has something to do with the gender difference. Men just expect to hear something else. You know, something manly.

Maybe I'll do my own decorating this year. The missiles and toads just aren't what I was expecting.

The Massage Chair. It's a wonderful thing. It's a beast, but it's a wonderful thing. My husband's wanted one for years, and he finally got his wish. It was picked out on Wednesday, after a couple of hours of testing in the showroom. Having figured out that the furniture in the living room would require rearranging to accommodate the new beast, I waited until my husband was away from the house so I could move everything around to suit myself. We had talked about the new arrangement, but I was the one to execute it. After all, what's the point of getting a brand new massage chair and then having to use it immediately because your back's out from moving furniture!?!? I have my own method of moving -- shove everything into place using mostly leg muscles. No sore backs for me.

So Friday at 10:30am the beast showed up with two guys. It was wrestled up the walkway, into the door, and out of its packaging. It now proudly adorns a space in the living room with prime viewing distance and direction to the TV. And boy, has it been used!!! He's enjoying it very much and says that his back already feels better.

Creations... hmmm... let's see. What's new since I posted here last?

My WEBSITE!!! It's finally up and running, even though it still looks kind of sad and unprofessional. I'm working on it though. I figured I should get something up there since I've owned the domain for a YEAR!!! Talk about procrastination. Actually, I blame it on my gnat-like attention span. Too many other things occupying my time lately.

So if you wanna check it out, here it is:

I'm currently filling it up with images of my artwork. Soon enough it'll have jewelry, knitting, and some of the other things I've created on there. With any luck, I'll even post some pictures and creations that have never been seen.

Now I'm going to go work on it some more.
