It was that kind of a day. Need beauty fix.


The wind is still roaring outside, gusts up to 50 MPH.  I’d have thought we’d had more than a half-inch of rain today, but it was hard for me to separate the noise from the sheets of rain and those heavy gusts, the house creaking and squeaking along with it all. The temperatures are tumbling tonight. We should dip close to near freezing after several mild nights.  Truly a nasty Wednesday in LA.

The satellite was cutting in and out and the internet went down this afternoon, halting a post in progress and some fanart I was working on.

I decided to delve into my instruction manual for Adobe Illustrator on my Kindle Fire and for the life of me couldn’t figure out how to zoom in on the pdf. My itchy, sore, watery eyes just wouldn’t cooperate either.  I’d had little sleep due to pain from the FMS, so I turned out the light and took a nap. Hey, it was working for the cats. It was that kind of day.

Tonight everything is working again. I have my freshly-washed hair partially dry and twisted into pincurls. Hopefully  when I brush it out  in the morning it will look half-way decent for my luncheon date with SM to discuss the book plans.

Also looking forward to the sunshine promised us and a chance to enjoy an afternoon in my little hometown.

As for now, I feel the need for some beauty, some brightness and little sunshine of sorts. Hope you also enjoy this little beauty fix.

  1. Thanks for the beauty fix! I hope you get some respite from the weather. As for the manuals, well, that’s a whole ‘nother story…

    Have a truly great day tomorrow! I have high hopes for the book project. I know it’s something you could do beautifully. And it’s work, real work, doing what you love.

  2. We had that awful wind late yesterday afternoon and all night! Yuck! Thank goodness our power is still on. Still it’s going to be 30 degrees colder today, but sunny!
