More proof that I don't have enough to say to post something important every day for a month. Yes, I have again resorted to old photos -- this one of me in 196sometime-or-another-early at about age 4. It also may help verify the rumour that blondes have more fun...

Truthfully, today has been a fun day for me. I slept late (!!unusual these days!!) and barely made it to watercolor class at 9:30. I was prepared to scrap it all and start relearning watercolor from scratch, but was encouraged and am feeling much better about things. There is so much to learn -- and it was a lot of fun. As soon as I got home, about 1 pm, Doug and I went out to eat lunch and then we ... don't laugh ... wandered around the mall for about 4 hours, then went to Bed, Bath, and Beyond, and then to the bookstore. It was about 7 pm by the time we got home! Isn't that just a totally stupid waste of an afternoon? And I had a great time. So there.

P.S. One of my things to do soon is update blog links on my sidebar. If I don't have your blog linked over there, give me a bit as I'll get them gradually updated! You are probably on my blogroll.... Do be sure to go visit Marie-Dom to see her "leaf a day" challenge, which she is doing as part of NaBloPoMo. (Marie, I'll get you added onto the list ASAP -- your idea is inspirational!)

P.P.S. ZELMA -- keep it up, girl! (waving hello!)

Sounds like a perfectly quality day to me! Such a cutie photo. I have also been following MD and her leaves are terrific.

Your class sounds like fun.

I am glad you had a great time. I'll go check the leaves out.

I'm glad to hear you are feeling better about the watercolor things. I love your watercolor work. Just from reading about your experiences I can see that it is not something you just pick up and start doing. In my own limited experiences, I know that things can get muddy very fast!!
