Here’s what adorable Chester was doing last night 🙂 He is so photogenic that I just have to share these great pictures of him.
This is him about 5 minutes ago:
Last night an idea popped into my head. I decided to paint the picture below. I saw something like it before and wanted one of my own. I took out a canvas, sketched the design, and painted it. Even though it’s not perfect, it turned out better than I imagined. It looks great in my bedroom.
If an idea “pops” into my head, it’s often hard for me to let it go. I’m sure everyone has this sometimes, but it seems like I’ve been getting it a lot lately. I attribute some of this to a post-graduation feeling of boredom or maybe just a need to feel like my life is more exciting than it might actually be.
My brother came here to visit me this weekend and he brought his girlfriend. It’s weird to see my little brother, whose been smaller than me for so long, looking so old and adult. I can’t believe he will be 21 next month. We all went golfing, which was absolutely nuclear, ate lunch at a place called Scotty’s, and then went downtown to buy my mother something for her birthday, which I sent home with him and I think he has yet to give it to her so I won’t say what we got her just yet. We went to my favorite local store, which sells only fair trade gifts and goods. I saw a hand carved cat figurine sitting on a shelf and I just loved it. I wasn’t expecting to get anything for myself, so I passed it up. Two days later, I still was thinking about that cat. After work today, I ran over to the store and picked it up. Here it is:
I love it and I’m so glad that I finally bought it and got it off my mind. It’s a lovely addition to my bookshelf, don’t you think? 🙂
It was difficult for me to come up with anything to write. I’m exhausted because this weekend kicked my butt. Anyway, I appreciate you reading!
