Today is the 3rd day of our winter storm week. We actually had some thunder and lightning, which is rare in the San Francisco Bay Area. I love thunderstorms - when I lived back in Connecticut, I would often stop whatever I was doing when a thunderstorm arrived just so I could watch the lightning.
Ah yes, winter in this area is our rainy season - and some of the trees are just loving it! Don't they know it's not spring yet? With all these blooms, I think they're confused.
I went into the wet lab to take a picture of my January bead journal "page" progress. I had to teach last night, so no bead work for me. Tonight I'll make great progress, though. Wow, black/gray/white is really difficult to photograph - especially when the lighting is lousy. But here's where I am so far. I need to make a slight modification to this - I'm finding it a bit difficult to "draw" with needle, thread, and beads without a picture on the base. But for the most part, it's going well.
Peanut, on the other hand, doesn't much care what it's doing outside. As long as she can be with her peeps, she's a happy camper. When "dad" is home, the best place to be is under his office chair - as long as nobody is in the kitchen doing foodie things. And yes, "dad" is wearing yellow socks - he has a large collection of them!
My final comment for the day will be on how radically things have changed in the advertising world. Years ago, you would NEVER have seen something like this out in the public eye. This flier came in the mail a few weeks back, and I just couldn't resist posting a picture from it. OMGosh, how did this pass "corporate inspection"? LOL!
Now it's time to go have yourselves a happy and creative day - that's just what I'm going to do!
