A Very Good Day  
As the subject says, I've had a very good day today. If you didn't see yesterday's post please check it out and comment. No progress today on my mask though. But I got some great stuff in the mail. Chris bought me a pretty turquoise blank journal for me to write verses and stuff in. I love it. The cover says Everlasting Love on it. So then I had the song in my head by Carl Carlton. I got my cuttings today of the dragon fruit. I'm thrilled too. The seller was super nice and because he got delayed shipping he threw in extra cuttings. I mean he was really generous. I ordered 1 Frankie's Red and now I have 4!!! I will plant them in pots tomorrow so they start to take root. I also got 1 American Beauty bonus. YAY!! So here are the types I have so far plus the three unknown types I bought years ago.

Bruni - White
Frankie's Red - Red
Condor - Purple
American Beauty - Purple.

That's a very good garden for a beginner like me really. So I have two purples. I'd like to get one more red so I hope to get Lake Atitlan Red. But it's not a priority right now. My neighbor down the street called and asked if I'd found anymore costume jewelry. No, not much. I did have a very small pile and I was waiting in case I found more but she came and bought it anyway so I was happy about that.

Guys remember that "simple" Fear drawing? Well it's not so simple really but I finally finished it today.

I guess with Fear there's never anything simple. This one had a lot of layers and masks because so much stuff was both in front and behind like the table, the arm which is in two parts, the wings and the pencil. I guess I didn't make it simple after all. I'm starting to wonder if any fear drawing will ever be simple. But I'm very happy with how it turned out. I wanted the background to look like it was a traditional drawing. So I went for that paper look. I really like how this turned out. So Fear is annoyed that someone has failed him. "If you want something done right you gotta do it yourself." is the cry of many INTJ villains. Two other phrases I could easily replace in there and they'd work would be "Good help is hard to find." and "Next time."

My arm seemed better this morning. I think I was able to put it in a pose next to me that I have not been able to do for months. It did finally start to hurt but I hope this means I'm on the mend. Bullet is doing good today. She screamed happily in the morning and flapped her wings. I was thrilled about that.

That's awesome about the cuttings! So much yummy potential once all these start to fruit. That was so cool of him.

The Fear drawing came out great! I love how annoyed he is and I have seen you in this state many times. I love my little super villain. ;)
So many times you have had to figure out things on your own because the world around was lacking.

Bullet has been looking better and that is so wonderful. I am glad ytour arm seems better. I want you 100% !

I know. I wish they'd start making fruits already. I might need a new post with all these extra cuttings I got.

I should show him without his hand on his face. He is so angry, but it's contained anger. Ha yeah. I get this way often so it is a bit out of character for him. Aw love you too. Yes, the fools beneath me! Bwaa haa haa!!

I'm so glad Bullet is in one of her good moments. Yeah, Bullet and I need to be at 100%.

Ha I can't help but love this drawing of Fear annoyed. We've all been there at least once or twice, and well it's true, you want something done right, you have to do it yourself. I find that along wtih "Good help is hard to find." to be classic lines.

Congratulations on getting extra frankies reds, that was very fortunate. The way you describe it reminds me of back 2 years ago when I unintentionally ordered two reptile carpets from a site called BigAl's Reptiles (I think that's the name). I only wanted one but I accidentally ordered it again, but the site owners caught wind of it and asked me if I wanted to cancel it before they did so. I'd think that any other site would have just let it take it's course and get more money, but I was really impressed with how generous they were.

Thanks. It's so expressive and you're right. I think everyone can relate to this one regardless of type. I feel this way so often even for major projects. The "Good help" quote goes hand in hand with this one because bad help leads to you having to do everything yourself.

Oh tha's great. I love it when companies show that kind of professionalism. I think I've heard of Big Al's Reptiles. They must be a famous big company. That or there's an Al's something or other for almost everything out there.
