summer's end

hello- this is the 2nd time i've sat down to post all summer.the first one i never completed- i offer this up in lieu of that.i've been on vacation since the end of june, and am scheduled to go back to work on tuesday(today is friday). it's been a deliciously good summer with lots of time spent making art, reading, looking at art, sleeping, writing; spending time with friends and family and just generally doing whatever i felt like doing- the only really sad thing was learning that a dear friend of mine is seriously ill, and there is nothing that i can do to alter that...i also spent a fair amount of time doing nothing special-watching silly movies cooking alot of pasta with pesto sauce, drinking gallons of iced coffee laced with lethal amounts of cream and splenda-yes i am still a vegan, but a vegan who cannot live without cream in her coffee. i am going to make a serious effort to change this very soon as i think it may be one of the reasons that i cannot lose the weight i so desperately need to lose- but this is very hard folks- i've given up alcohol, i've given up cigarettes, must i give up half and half too? i see that my dashboard has changed in the months i've been away from posting-idon't see the little symbol for inserting pictures, so this may be a post without pictures until i figure it out, but i've made contact and blasted a little hole in my bloggers block-can pictures be too far behind? i'm working on creating a web page, which is far from finished, and i may have some artwork published in a few months,but those are stories for another day.for now i'm back, and am thrilled to be here-here's hoping my next post won't be too long in coming.oh i almost forgot- the best news of all- i am hoping that this will be my last year of working as a school nurse with a little luck, by this time next year i will be a full time artist!!!love for now, brigid.

  1. I've finally given up cigarettes. I miss them terribly, as it's only been 3 1/2 weeks. But it had to be done.

    I use liquid coffee mate in my coffee instead of half and half now. It claims to be dairy free. I've become slightly lactose intolerant and have found that my stomach does better with the coffee mate. I'm sure the calorie/fat content is the same or more, but I love the deliciously creamy taste it gives to my coffee. I guess I could buy the fat free or low fat version, but then it doesn't taste as good or as rich. So forget it.

    Can't wait to see your web page.

    Take care, beautiful. Hope to hear from you soon.
