Last but not least, a silly shot. This is what I do when I am awake at 12 or 2 at night. Seriously, I don’t even understand how I’m almost 26 sometimes.

While we’re here do we want to play a little game of what’s on my desk? Yes? Awesome! So do I!
Starting from the bottom left: Pictures that I tore out of magazines, cat stickers and a blank thank you note, my weather owl, world pen holder, journals, clorox wipes (I’m a little crazy about germs sometimes), a bento box that I used to put the little bit of paint I needed, paint, behind the paint a picture of my sister T and I Christmas 2010, one of my favorite pieces of art by The Black Apple, delicious blueberry acai chocolate covered things, aaaand a VS bag full of different candies.
I do most of my work leaning on pillows in my bed…
Well, I’m off to go read some more. 9 books so far this month!!! Maybe I can read one more in the next 2 days!

After cooking two dishes I still hadn’t had enough of the kitchen and I was craving something sweet. I wanted chocolate which I have in my room but I also wanted to whip something up. While greek yogurt, fruit, honey and a little bit of granola is usually my go to dessert, I wanted something different. I remembered seeing two different cans of pumpkin puree and so I made pumpkin muffins (I consider them cupcakes really, I mean with all the sugar, let’s just call a spade a spade…) and my goodness. The recipe called for a pound of pumpkin and the can I had was one ounce short but I figured it would work and it did! It DID I tell you!
I ate more than two…
muffins cupcakes were baking I sat down to finish up a painting I’ve been working on. It’s going to house my word of the year though I’m still deciding between two or three very similar words. I figure tomorrow, or at the very latest, sometime later this week, I will have my word and will finish the painting. Exciting right? Then I’ll be able to share my word of the year!
Cute plate huh? Bought it from Target a few years ago and just found it again. I left it behind when I moved last time and that was just silly. I mean, look at it. It’s my paint plate.
I watched Pretty Little Liars and painted until all was done.
A great, great day. Now I’m sitting in my bed under my warm blanket typing this and while pictures are uploading I’m reading The Art of Eating In. So far, really great book. Helping me not be sad that I am not allowing myself to buy fast (or restaurant of any kind) food as often if at all.
I’m starting to get this whole synchronicity thing Julia Cameron was talking about in The Artist’s Way. I still have a way to go, but I’m making a genuine effort and keeping my excuses to a minimum and programs that I’m choosing to be a part of are lining up with things I’m reading, or things I’m going through almost perfectly.
2012 is shaping up to be just splendid!
p.p.s. And just in case you are wondering… cardigan: Urban Outfitter, shirt: American Eagle, skirt: Goodwill bins, ship pocket watch: Urban Outfitter, shoes (barely shown): Target!

One – I take notes and make passages in books, I’ve started keeping a little notebook of all my thoughts and quotations this year. Mostly for business/self help/etc books. Nice to refer back to. 🙂
Two – End. One of my favorite broken down buildings in Encinitas. They more recently put gates around it which is a bummer, I would have loved to go up the stairs and such. I figure it was an apartment building at one point. Don’t know what happened since.
Three – My first favorite broken down building… or at least the address.
Four – It’s a school in great need of repair. It’s been closed off for years and there have been people working on it or in the fenced off school yard for the past three years but nothing seems to change from where I can see. How big of trouble would I get in if I jumped the fence? I mean, all I want to do is take pictures. Not even to sell…
Five – Boats without motors. House boats. I think these things are just so cute. I guess the city was trying to get them torn down because they aren’t up to city codes or something (probably blocking someone’s view… ugh) but the people prevailed and the boats shall stay another day. Aren’t they cute?!
Six – I figure that these tiles were made by kids in junior high at the oldest but there’s one talking about the gangster (not gangsta) of love. Made me chuckle.
Seven – The side of the cutest little post office in Leucadia. It’s tiny, sooo tiny. Probably been there for so long, but the paint looks fresh and people still use it. I love it so.
As promised I’m going to leave you with more older gent pictures…
