Gaming and art  
So things are going well. Bullet has recovered nicely though I'm keeping her in the brooder since I see another egg on the way. I'll keep up the extra calcium in her food which will help. Was not able to take her to the vet because we had a huge storm yesterday. Plus my car is unreliable not starting like it did at the pet store the other day.

The nepenthes are doing great because of all the rain though. I'll have to find time to go out and get pics of them. I've got the fanged bicalcaratas doing wonderful this year. And that one that was slow, St. Pacifica, if finally pitchering and looks just like a mature ventricosa which I love just without the pink color.

I had a great dream last night. I sometimes have a dream where I'm in a big house and I find a secret door that leads to another large section that's hidden. Well that happened again. I went through a wall that opens up and inside was this colorful hallway with rooms on the side. There were fountains and it just went on and on. The walls were green, aqua or pink with gold swirly trims. So nice. I love this type of dream.

I'm so impatiently waiting for my Inside Out figures to arrive.

Oh and Happy Birthday to actipton80. I will as usual be sending you a gift late. I'm always late with everyone's gifts.

Got some older gift art and commissions I want to show because I don't think I've shown these here yet. Links to the full size on the right.


A commission for badcowboy. She wanted a winged bison statue in a funny cartoon pose.



A two part commission for earthmother of egrets in a mating flight and a Cuban anole on a wall. The egret one has done quite well among my bird fans on Da.


Kenty the Budgie. A gift for or was this a trade for gamma_wings


A gift for Colonel-Motivation on DA who lost his beloved pet budgie Snowflake. Reminded me a lot of Bullet only he was a black eyed clear.


A collab with my buddie Pearls Birds, on DA of her characters an owl and a canary. She drew I inked and colored.


Commission for audes_lj of his characters Nathanael and his big badger Conrad defending against a random villain. Most complex commission yet with most characters and full background. I'm quite proud of this one. Hope to be starting on another one for him soon. I'm always open for commissions.

Today should be an easy day for me. I'll take it easy. Probably game and perhaps work on rendering some videos. I got an incredible shot while in Georgia that has to be seen to be believed. My little rifle did great. I have my aunt, uncle and Chris as my witness plus video footage. That's all I'll say but George would be proud. Probably the shot of my life time. I had no idea probability was on my side that day. I wasn't even trying to do what I did ok enough about that. More once the video is up. I do want a scope on my rifle.

OH and today's also another anniversary. Another 4th. YAY. Just remembered. Guess I'll call Chris and tell him.

So that's what's been going on lately.

Current Mood: Happy

I'm glad Bullet is better. I pray she doesn't have any more egg trouble.

I wish it would rain here. Pet Plant would appreciate it. I repotted it, and right now it is on the front porch. I need to water it.

All the birds on this page are so cute. Kenty looks just like Rudy so I love that picture. I think I just saw a clip on Youtube that was part of a documentary on budgies, and that mountain was in the background.

Snowflake does look like Bullet. I thought that art was cute the first time I saw it too.

That owl looks so huggable, and the canary wants to be him.

I don't mind my gift being late. I think the majority of my cards will be late. I don't know since the mail hasn't come yet.

I hope not too.

I'm glad you Pet Plant is recovering to. Good you repotted it. Should be done every two years.

Kenty is a cute budgie. Yeah that's Ayers Rock. The famous land mark of Australia.

I thought you might like the pic with the owl and canary. Yeah she wants to be him.

I haven't sent anything yet but I'll let you know when I do.

Well, first of all happy anniversary for August!

I guess right now she should be okay, so the delay is thankfully only annoying. The car having problems however is something I experienced a lot with the Mercury Sable I had in the USA... a real frustrator.
Good that the rain is bringing life to your plants, even though it was probably rather powerful.

I like it when videogames have those things. Exploration is rather fun to me, so such a dream would be really nice to have.

Nice of you to share those pictures. Gotta say, I am curious about the comments.
Desthagirion on August 5th, 2015 02:54 am (UTC)
Thanks. It's been a good day.

Well that's typical of buying a used car. Just a few more minor things to fix on it then it should be fine.

Yeah it was pretty bad in some areas with flooding.

Yes I love dreams of exploration.

Yep no prob.

I'm so glad Bullet is doing well. I hope she has no more bother.

Your weather sounds perfect. Certainly perfect for the Nepenthes!

Very nice dream!

Great art! You have Uluru just right. Love the budgie, too. Love the anole. And the last one is just spectacular!

Thanks. I hope so too.

Not so great for going out but the plants are happy.

It was a fun one.

Thanks. I was worried the rock would not come out right but I'm very happy with the landscape in that. The anole was pretty easy. Thanks. Yes my best commission with the most characters and details so far.
