This will probably be my last blog post until January, as I don't really intend to get internet access at my apartment this year. Tomorrow I'm packing the car and going to Philly, Fuz will follow with the cats (one of whom is now drooling happily on my lap) on Friday.
See ya'll at winter break!

Back to School

So, in addition to painting vegetables, I've been getting ready to go back to school for my third and final year at Temple.
Apartment: check. It's pretty good this year, I hope to not feel like I'm living in a bad movie. It's the first floor of a duplex. New floors. The walls in the living room have big mirrors on them. Like, really big. And there's a non-functioning fireplace, which has some interesting possibilities.
I'm going up on Thursday, moving everything I can by myself, and Fuz will be up Friday evening with the cats and to help me move the big stuff.
Now I just have to pack up everything here.

I don't know why I find certain vegetables so pretty. Really red peppers. Tomaotes with greens and purples in them.
The Takoma Park Farmer's Market is an excellent place to go to find them, though.

It Was Delicious.

It was delicious.

Went to the farmer's market today. Beautiful red peppers, $1 each.
I miss the farmer's market in California. We went to two with Dad, and they were fantastic. The strawberries were to die for. The Takoma Park market is good, but it just can't compare.
I bought two peppers anyway. And painted this one.

Halfway through the painting: This is awful! Why can't I just buy food and eat it like a normal person? No, I have to paint it and make myself miserable. It's utter crap.

It got better.
Later, when I decided I was finished, I knew there was only one way to stop myself from overworking, nitpicking the painting to death.

I ate it like an apple.
