OF COURSE the A/C broke today.

Why, hello, Hottest Day of the Year!

I have very little to say. I'm excessively tired because Leta is walking as of a couple weeks ago and IT'S ALL OVER NOW.

I started two new portraits of the girls. I just have them sketched out right now and haven't actually worked up the energy to paint yet.

There's a change happening. I can tell. I don't know what yet, but I can smell the storm approaching. I feel quiet lately, internalized. I'll let you know when I figure it out.

Mina is wearing a dress I used to wear when I was a little girl. It's a little big for her but...still, wow...I REMEMBER wearing this dress. Posted by Hello

Garage Sale Heaven

Today Mina and I went to the Goth Girl Garage Sale in our old neck of the woods (Atwood neighborhood). It was great because goth girls are always buying and selling their clothing...lots of black dresses and skirts. I bought a long, african printed skirt. It's black, yellow, brown and white. I also bought Jason a Henry Rollins book that apparently he read when it came out...but THIS one is big and glossy with pictures. It's some kind of diary of touring with Black Flag or something... I think Jason likes it when I think of him while I'm shopping.

Actually, the whole neighborhood was having a garage sale. I also bought three CDs: Porno for Pyros, Arrested Development, and Sinead O'Connor. Mina got a new Arthur book. It was fun to walk around with her, looking for treasure... I saw a cool chair that I wish was brand new. It would be the perfect "dad" chair and it was aesthetically pleasant/modern looking. I should have asked where it came from.

A lot of houses are for sale in that neighboorhood. I would love to live there, but... I have to wonder how all of these artsy hippies can afford to live there. Am I missing something?

We went to Olbrich Gardens today with our friends Jana and Kal, who are going to be in Slovenia for most of the summer.  Posted by Hello

Mina and Kal love to help prune the flowers.  Posted by Hello
