This is part of the background of something I painted today but which I can’t show yet. Sometimes my collectors require secrecy, so, as much as I’d love to show what I painted today, I’ll have to wait on this one.
In other news: I’m losing weight! I weigh myself twice a week at the Y and I’ve already lost 3.4 pounds. I’m excited my system is working, and by that I mean both my metabolism and the system I devised in order to lose weight. I’m definitely hoping to wear something pretty fabulous for John and Ryan’s epic White Linen party, which is coming up in about two weeks.
I still was awoken by loud banging this morning, but the property promised to fix the gate that’s malfunctioning and making all the noise, so here’s hoping. It’s been causing me quite a bit of anxiety as I hate noise and need peace, especially to sleep. I’m trying hard not to overreact and sell all my stuff and move to Malaga. It would be quite a shame, especially now that things have started to go so well for my business here in Houston!
Also, my friend came by this evening and told me she finished reading Lone Wolf and really loved it. Reminds me I should be doing stuff to promote it. But at least I got to work a little bit on Betty’s story today, so I don’t feel terribly guilty about the job I’m doing as an author.
