These rabbits were fun. Last night I started painting a sketch I've had laying around for months, and I am really loving it! I was wistfully wishing for the kind of look I used to get with acrylics and oils, and so am trying to achieve something like that with the watercolors. It is a bit more time-consuming I must say, but it looks super cool I think.
Today is my baby brother's birthday! He is 15 years old. I'm old enough to be his mom really, and that's kind of how I relate to him by default. I suppose I get less mom-ish the older he gets. We are all going to see Wolverine at the movies.
My tomato and zucchini plants are getting ready to flower!!! I can hardly believe it! As a first-time vegetable gardener, these things are exciting. ;) The zucchini plants are getting absolutely huge.
Okay, now SOMEBODY make me stop eating crackers and get down to some more work.

Stop eating those crackers! unless of course they have some lovely cheese to go with them! I LOVE the bunnies, their fur looks so soft and squishy (like Rex rabbits, which I love!). I wish I had the guts to plant veggies....I just bought some basil....we'll see.

Haha Elena, they are CHEEZ-IT crackers! Now they are all gone so I can't use them to procrastinate. :P
