Coughs and Giant Snowflakes

I’ve been sick on and off for a while…I guess it’s more that I’ve been sick, it just bothers me more at different times. Anyway, today I was feeling bad and so I brought out my pillow and a blanket and put them on the couch under the window. I sort of zombie-stare out of it into the sky and towards the roof with icicles. There was a huge icicle earlier, and then I looked away and when I looked back it was gone. I don’t know if it fell or melted…but on the other side there are 4 tinier skinnier ones that are just kinda hanging there like fangs. It’s like our gutter has a mouth and wants to bite…the air.

There are also giant snowflakes – well there were, they’re tinier now, but earlier they were really really big and falling slowly. Way more fun than yesterday when there was lots of snow that was falling super fast….like a pouring rain, except…snow. There was almost a glimpse of blue sky too, but then more clouds came, now the sun looks like a cotton ball.

From what the weathermen say there will be more snow today and into tomorrow….but the nutcracker is on Thursday so hopefully the roads will be clear for that.

My life this week

I had this interesting idea the other day – mostly because Alex keeps telling me that my art is awesome and sell-able – to revamp my storefront. I’m aiming to have everything done and ready by March (or May?) since most of the ideas are still formulating themselves and I have a lot of work to do, but I’m really excited (and enjoying using my Fireworks CS5 trial before it expires).
Tonight I have my art class, and I’ll leave early because it gets dark – but I’ll probably finish my night scene and start another. I’ll also need to buy more canvasses. O:)
Earlier today, I made a little light-stand because we moved the other end table into the bedroom two weeks ago and put the tv on it so we could stay in bed while we were sick. I think it turned out nicely. I wrapped the bottom box in wrapping paper and left the top box the way it was. Naturally, I put it on uneven but…..it looks nice. 😛
I did this *after* I swept the floors that have been collecting dust since we were sick a few weeks ago. I know, that’s lame – but now I feel super accomplished.
Later this week, it’s going to get really fun, because I have friends coming up and we’re going to try and get makeovers sometime on the weekend. Which will be awesome because…I’ve never had one before.
In the meantime, I’m going to go paint my nails black so all of the paint that gets stuck in them tonight (that takes about a week to get out) won’t be too obvious.
