Artist Trading Cards

I posted some ATCs to trade at ATCards.com today and this one is my favorite. I named it Telepathy. It's an abstract paper collage. I also finished up some of my other ATCs that I had put away and forgotten about.

I took another vacation day today so that I could go with the Bean to her disability hearing. We ate lunch downtown at a barbeque cafe across the street from the federal building. They have a great location, cause as soon as you step out of the federal building door, you can smell the bbq on the wind. We could not help but go eat there. It was pretty good, but I wish they had had french fries instead of just potato salad or potato chips.

My cat Shirley just came in and begged for "fresh on top". She won't eat unless it's fresh catfood. She also won't eat canned cat food or kitty treats. She's been that way her whole life. My other cat Flea will eat just about anything, especially if it's something someone else is trying to eat.

I saw some interesting things in a National Geographic magazine while waiting for Katy today. Some stuff about hummingbirds and about Saturn. I am going to ngm.com to see about some related items they mentioned. That's a great magazine, one of my favorites. I also like the Smithsonian Magazine. Really neat-o stuff in both.

The powers that be at work have decided that we can't have any fish bowls or aquariums on our desks in our building so I am having to bring all my bettas home. I've brought two home and have four more that I still need to bring home. I can't think of a reason for this new rule. I guess it was just another way of asserting control. I've had the fish there for three years and never a single complaint. Plus it was very stress relieving to be able to watch them and they were never a distraction from my work.


I can't believe that I have a week vacation left this close to the end of the year. I had planned to go to Arkansas but for the 3rd year in a row life got in the way. Katy was going to go with me and she is very sick. Not only does she not feel like going, but she would surely make everyone in Arkansas sick.

So I will do whatever each day brings me. Today I got mail ready. I have lots of jams and round robins to mail out, as well as some ATCs that I made. I am sending Woven Dog to my ATC buddy, Patty Jones. I think she will like it. Later, I will go to the post office and then have some lunch.

I'm listening to an audio book, The Camel Club by David Baldacci.
