I just ate way, way too much Chinese takeout. *headdesk* It's too good for my mouth to resist...
I am so glad that school for the week is over...I have homework to look forward to over the weekend, but I don't have any more classes and I am happy with that knowledge. Yay.
It's still cold here, and the sky is grey and overcast. Bleh. Even the trees turning colors have been kind of muted against the greyness of it all. I am hoping, however, that the weather takes a turn for the warmer on Saturday, with that ride scheduled. *crosses fingers*
So I loaded up the horses in the trailer and took them for a spin today. Colletta was fine--this was old hat to her. Violet, on the other hand...well, let's just say that she spent almost the entire trip banging around like a nincompoop. I'm having doubts as to whether she will load up again...she had an expression of 'get me away from that thing PLEASE' when I unloaded her. Ugh. I'm not looking forward to the ensuing battle. Sigh.
Why have all of my entries lately been full of gloom? I think that fall is starting to get to me. And my schedule. *snarls at said schedule*
And now, for something completely different...I emailed an Internet-based writing magazine yesterday asking if they would be interested in commissioning me for illustrations that pertain to stories and poems. And, wonder of wonders, they replied and said yes! Yee! I don't know when they'll first need the art, or what I'm going to draw yet, but I can hardly wait! I'll be paid! With real money! :D Now I need to find more ezines to see if they'll be interested... *hunts*
I finished the Inkheart trilogy last night. It didn't end quite the way I expected...and I was on a 'end-of-book' low after finishing. Sigh. But I have ideas for some paintings of Dustfinger. Time to devote to said paintings would be nice... *sighs*
I have some time here at the gym, so I'm going to start sketching out some character sheets for a book that a friend asked me to illustrate. And without any further ado, I shall sign off.
