The jasmine by the pool has started blooming filling the world with its sweet scemt. I figured it was time to paint my toenails red and wear my Birkenstocks. It was a beautiful day today. I prepared my studio for the open studio event tomorrow, but I also snuck in all kinds of fun: an arts market I went to with John and AVM to see Stephanie Ramirez, a former Escapist, an almond croissant and a visit to a used bookstore in Rice Village, 1,000 words on my ghost story, and the spiciest ramen I have ever tried at Tiger Den in Chinatown, where I have always wanted to go. All in all, it was a fabulous day.
