thoughts and happenings

It feels like it's been ages since I've written here...but I'm in between paper journals, and I'm too lazy to finish one or start another, so here I am. I made strawberry jam today! I still have to taste it, but hopefully I'll get up early enough to make scones to go with it...My aunt from Florida is here visiting, so tomorrow will be full of fun stuff like the perusing the Santa Monica farmers market and maybe going to the beach!

I am currently reading Infinite Variety: The Life and Legend of the Marchesa Casati which is extremely interesting...I'd never really even heard of her before (the book was recommended to me by a lovely collage artist I met at a craft fair) but she was definitely a legend of her own making...a patroness of the arts..a work of art herself. She makes me want to draw again.

I had my first coherent thought about going to Italy today as we were picking my Aunt up from the airport. I imagined boarding the plane. I was terrified. I can't imagine hugging my parents goodbye and then sitting on a plane for more than 10 hours not knowing what's going to happen next, or for the next year! I plan on drinking lots of wine with my crappy airplane food.

other than that...I've been doing very little. Which was close to driving me insane at first, but I've come to accept the fact that being at home and not being stressed out is a true blessing and I will take advantage of it before my world is turned upside down. I just have to try and not be too lazy...
