Today was a good day.


I'm really proud of myself today.

Chris and I took a early afternoon trip to Turtle Bread, got some breakfast and then headed down to the Science Museum of Saint Paul to look at the Ancient Egypt exhibit. It's funny - we've got this year-long pass to the Science Museum and we don't go as much as we should go.

This was the second day in a row I was over there -- yesterday I went with Chris to go see the late night showing of Tornado Alley, a great Omni theatre movie about tornado chasers. Man, I love science.

The rest of the day was spent making vats and vats of butternut squash soup from the 7 or 8 squashes we got from our CSA, and topping it off with some home made pumpkin pie.

I have a flower pattern to show again today - this one is the bauhinia blakeana - the flower that is on Hong Kong's flag. I had a sketch in my sketchbook that I finished up in photoshop. I'm really enjoying the white ground on this one.


  1. That's a lot of squash!..

    I love the colors and lines in this pattern! It's very unique :)

    1. Haha! Yeah, Val, it was a TON of squash! We have so much of that soup in the freezer. I'll be eating it for a million days!
