Saturday, May 7, 2011, 4:14pm: Tomorrow is Mother's Day. This will be the first Mother's Day that Mama is no longer on this plane of existence... I wanted to make a card by hand for her this year, to be sent via the Celestial Letter Box. I have only been fooling around with watercolours and still haven't seriously started the lessons that I plan to follow (Watercolour Secrets). Anyway, here is what I made, after lots of practicing. I hope she likes it.   (click on the photos to see them larger at Flickr--I'm sorry the photos are fuzzy, but I took them with the camera on my iPod Touch)

Sunday, May 8, 2011, 9:38am: To all you mothers and grandmothers and all who helped raise us, Happy Mother's Daythank you and Happy Mother's Day! Here is my Mother's Day page (and all-the-time page honouring Mama) that I made years ago. Please also see this poem I wrote.

Here is my sister's Mother's Day blog entry for today. Lots more about Mama here! And here is the beautiful video she made:

Saturday, July 30, 2011, 11:46am: Two things have been on my mind a lot lately: One: B. and I have started playing "Animal Crossing: City Folk" again! We have been playing every day; and every night I go out bug hunting and catching fish--tons o' money to be had! Two: we have been having horrible 90*+F. days here. It's wearing. :-/ 

Here is a watercolour I did yesterday: I used Reeves tube watercolours, Crayola crayons, coarse kosher salt, and Sakura Pigma Micron brush pens. It's called The Lost Comet (click on the photo to see it larger at Flickr):
