Just calling in because it's been so long since I posted anything.
I made a banana and walnut cake that sank in the middle because I put in too much banana. Tasted good, though.
:: I'm taking a break from plotting out the mural I'm hoping to paint for the gorgeous Maggie next week.
I love this sort of work, even though designing does not come as easily as the drawing and painting - anyway, I think I'm almost there ...
Or should go more for this sort of all-over flowery bowery effect ...
like in this pic I took of gorgeous artist Emma Hack, who paints all over bodies, continuing a patterned background over the body in such a studied detailed way that, from the correct viewpoint, the body almost disappears. Then she makes large-format photographs of the work. Amazing!
:: It's cold, and I'm sitting at my desk with a hottie on my lap.
I awoke at some ungodly hour this morning absolutely freezing ... I had thrown back the doona and turned on the fan (its remote control is on my bedside table) in what must have been a menopausal moment, then fallen straight back asleep.
:: On TV, I'm loving Place of Execution on Thursday nights. It's a good, tight whodunit/thriller, well-acted and written, and I haven't got a clue what can have actually happened.
I'm also enjoying Lost in Austen, which I didn't manage to see all the way through last time.
:: More news soon, I promise!
