Laini and I met today for lunch, and she is as lovely in person as she is on her blog, so i feel fortunate to have made a new friend. She has loads of helpful advice for a new artist such as me! and not only that, but she gave me a few of her beautiful cards adorned with her lovely ladies!
i spent the remainder of the day with john, and as luck would not have it, we don’t have another day off together until mid-april. go figure. so, we went for our usual walk to the coffee/teahouse this morning (with the dog and in the rain…). and i did something today that i haven’t done in over 10 years. i bought a watch. it was time as i’ve really, really needed one. it feels slightly odd on my wrist, but it’s kind of nice. it’s one of those watches that grown-ups wear. it has a pretty soft blue face and a stainless steel linked band. i suppose i’m over my rebellious phase of paying no attention to time and have entered reality. now i have no excuse for being late. and i suppose i’m all grown up now. nah, not really.
