Just when I was getting ready to make this post a Lavender Diamond song came on my Pandora titled "In Heaven There is No Heat". I don't know if she meant this as a good thing, but it sounds great to me! It has been 100 degrees here in Portland for the last couple of days. It is pretty hot. How do all you summer-lovers like it now, huh? I enjoy summer more now then I used to, thanks to the a/c units in my windows, mostly. But, one of the things I like most about summer is that fall is next!
I got some good work done on the new issue of Figure 8 last week, but it was all first drafts. I have a lot to do! It is always down to the wire like this. The Zine Symposium as a deadline works well for me.
Of course, I would much rather be on nice breezy island with a bunch of animals I could hang out with. That is what it is like in Thistle Town everyday! Thistle Town Studio exists on Vancouver Island and there are lots of adorable little friends there. At Christmas, I gave one of these critters, a lion, to a very nice baby I know. I am waiting for the right one to come over to my house. Maybe this cute little otter?
