So today was a good day actually. I fed all the birds and then after that I started to work on art. I finished inking all the expressions. I was so happy about that. And I got four of them colored. That means only 8 left to go and I'll be done with this at last! It would be 7 but I decided to redo Nervous because I didn't like how the original was one of the first ones I ever drew of him and it just was totally wrong. I don't know if I can finish all 8 tomorrow though. I can probably get through 4. So this may get done the day after tomorrow.

Chris got home early from work which was great. It was like having a half day off. He helped me water the last half of the plants. We went to Lowes because I wanted to get out but didn't stay long because my back started acting up. I wish I could have looked around more. But Chris bought me a new green paphiopedilum orchid. It's so nice. That's very cool. I'm glad because my other paphs from last year aren't flowering.

We chatted and came up with some new ideas for our story. I love doing that. Then we went out to walmart. He bought me a new machete. I'll have pics soon. I also got a new pair of shorts because I only had one left and have been worried they will rip from over use. AND I got a pink watch just like my purple one. My poor purple watch is all faded from being in the sun. I wear it all the time and love it. I don't shower with it anymore only because we have such hard water and my other watches have gotten all crusty in the cracks. Water doesn't hurt it, but I don't like it when they look dirty because of hard water. The band has molded to my arm and won't lie flat when I take it off. I compared it to another new purple one and it's sad how faded mine is. The EL on the light button is totally gone too. So I got the pink version to replace it when this one dies because I always kill my watches even when I love them. I wish there had been a blue one. There was, but it had hands. I need a digital watch because with my dyslexia I spend too much time trying to figure out what time it is. I can read hand clocks, but I'm just slow at reading them. And many times I read them wrong. I don't think the hour hand should move until the new hour is reached. That makes it confusing. So it's cool I got all this new needed stuff. I must scan the directions so I don't forget how to set the time.

Ooh, I can't wait to finish this expression chart. Oh here's another preview. This one is "Incredulous".

This is one of my favorites. What do you guys think?

Glad the story is coming along well!
My watch died :( The display went crazy on it when I woke up one morning and it just doesn't work anymore. That was a couple of weeks ago. Mine had molded to my arm shape too lol! And the EL had rubbed off. I got a new watch a few days later. I was sad that the one you got me died. You gave it to me at just the right time because I'd had a weird allergic reaction to the other watch I had. I have a stainless steel one now with a purple face. It's annoying that it doesn't light up like the one you got me did though.

I like Ophidius's incredulous look, especially his eyes!

Sounds like the battery died. Get a new one and replace it. These watches are pretty durable. Who knows how long it had been in the store before I bought it. Take it to a jeweler and have them change it for you. I think that part rubs off easily which is a bad design. I love color plastic watches. They are just the best. I've never liked the metal ones. They are cold and pull hairs which hurt.

Thanks. I'm very happy with this particular expressions. I Love Ophidius's eyes. Never thought I'd have a brown eyed character that I loved his eyes so much. But they are a vibrant brown which is unusual.

Yeah it could have been in the store a long time. I'll buy a battery for it and get it fitted. Jewellers charge a bomb if you buy the battery from them AND get them to fit it. I'm fine with the metal ones, the plastic discolours and doesn't look so nice after a while but mine is still ok. We don't get the sun you do lol!

Oh I didn't know it was expensive over there. Usually here you just pay for the battery and they do it for free. Yeah, our sun can be evil. Everything gets sun bleached.

I'm glad that you had a better day today and that you had a half day and that you got to go out, even if you had to cut it short because of your back.

Love your pic. I like blue eyes but I like brown, too, even darker brown than this, but this is fine. The light really shines out of his eyes!

It was a good day and very nice. And it was nice to get out even if only fora little.

I'm glad you like the pic. His eyes have so much life. I prefer the lighter colored eyes myself. I don't think I have any dark brown or black eyed characters...other than my black eyed budgie girl.
