An Art Journaling piece from last week:
I didn't do much journaling for Paint & Chronicle during the week that was 'Procrastination' - I was a Busy Bee (stretching canvas, etc.). The next week was Service Week again (last week of every month) and I didn't really have anything to write about that. But the Busy Bee made me think of a Memphis story:
There were flowering trees outside our apartment in Memphis, lining the street. In the Spring, the white flower petals would rain down on the sidewalk. I assumed it was the wind. Then one day while waiting out front I happened to look up and see Bumblebees among the white flowers. As they stuck their heads into the flowers, then pulled them back out, the petals rained down. It was the Bumblebees!
We had more SNOW over the weekend. Bahhh to Winter! We had our gaming friend over for D&D roleplaying - setup for the new Steampunk campaign. Then, in honor of Leonard Nimoy (RIP Spock) we played a game of Starship Catan. Which Cory had never played. And he won.
Symon Baguette napped the whole time:
The snow was to start after sundown on Saturday. We made sure Cory was on his way home before that. The snow began about 8:00 pm. We were forecast in the 1"-3" range. We received 5.5" of snow.
It is Tuesday and we were supposed to get Freezing Rain early this morning. I slept in till 7:00 am, anticipating coming in mid-morning. The temps were to rise and change to rain. When I checked the radar this morning, there was just scattered pink. Oh, well, it felt good to sleep in. I took the 8:55 am bus to work. Much of the slush was melted and the parking lot was just wet - the packed icy slush from yesterday was gone. Yesterday morning I was afraid to walk down the big steep hill because there was a solid patch of slick ice, so I went back up and around and out the other entrance. The bus arrived as I was heading up the sidewalk, but the driver waited for me. This morning the drizzle appeared to be frozen in the air, but was melting on the ground, no ice. Now it's above freezing.
However, tomorrow (Wednesday) we are to get snow - they keep changing their minds about what/how much we will get. We will have to wait and see. We are all suffering from severe Winter Fatigue.
