i'm just awaiting feedback from you guys on the whole lisp issue.

I surprised Doc this morning with a brunch of steak and potato pancakes. it was good. another great meal at the cool table.

i'm softening butter, preparing for cookie making. i'm making (yes, i finally decided): chocolate chocolate chip, chocolate chip oatmeal, and another batch of snickerdoodles. i'll get them all done while doc is taking a nap. so when he gets up he can take them to their new homes.

next year, gingerbread and iced sugar cookies.

oh, wow, the chocolate chocolate chip cookies are amazing, i will never make chocolate chip cookies without cocoa again! oh, so rich. wow. i was using a recipe that called for 2 1/4 cup flour. so i substituted the 1/4 cup of flour with baking cocoa. oh, wow. genius idea. i won't give so many of those away. yes i will, who am i kidding? the snickerdoodles are small balls since i forgot the baking soda, so they won't take up much room in the tins. that leaves more room for the choc choc chip and the oatmeal cinnamon choc chip cookies.

i''m so sick of these UNICEF commercials with the pathetic brown people. they suck. and i hate alyssa milano, who is the spokesperson.

we put the found table top on the rattan table today. it looks so much better than the other top, the painted one. it's also a bit bigger, so i had room to more permanently set up the computer speakers and organize stuff so there is room and space and clean area. i also had room to put the microphone next to the laptop.

i'm ready, technically speaking, to start recording more poetry. i'm just awaiting feedback from you guys on the whole lisp issue.

joy and trepidation

my paint stuff came today! the box of color-filled paint tubes, the brushes in their canvas case and the canvas boards were all waiting for me when i got home from Chewy's walk this evening.

but, kids! i'm not ready! the studio isn't ready. i thought i would have a few more days, and i was going to devote the next two days to it. but i haven't yet, and i want to use the stuff! i have to wait until i'm ready.

i'm making a lot of headway in the studio. the utility shelves that were stuffed full of random boxes has been cleaned off and the boxes cleaned out, and everything put back up. i have two clear shelves now. it's coming fast. open a box, take each item out and either put it away or throw it away. then pack up what doesn't fit into those two categories into the box, seal it up, label it and stack it to the side to be taken to storage. it's going well. my stuff will be organized and cleaned very soon.

the lights tonight were gorgeous. i love that cactus garden. didn't see the pictures? here's the link to them on my sister page. some are blurry, i haven't yet gotten the hang of slow shutter speeds. but most of these turned out really nice. i have a video i'll likely post on youtube, too. i didn't take much video, but it's pretty.
