I’m getting going slowly today, but that’s ok. There’s absolutely no need to rush anything, in my new slacker-artist existence in PDX.
Had a nice Tuesday. Worked on my illustrations, composition revisions and catalog updating, & got in a good workout. Then Charlie and I went shopping at the two Goodwills downtown, first the more ghetto one on Burnside & then the fancy one on 10th Ave. I felt so Portland authentic! Had never once shopped in a thrift store. It’s just too hard to find my size, generally, but if one is not in a hurry… He got me a few shirts at the first stop, and then a very cute jean jacket at the second. I hadn’t realized how old, yellowed and worn my current one is looking, compared to a fresh, dark wash. My old one is from the Gap and I got it late 20s / early 30s.
After that we went grocery shopping and I made us a vegan dinner that we enjoyed with some wine. We took Henry and Rocco for one of our meandering, cat-style strolls. Sir Henry controls the pace & progression, pretty much.
I really can’t complain that jam night is here again, which it’s going to be a majority of Wednesdays now. There will be beer anyway! lol. OK, I better get cracking at “stuff”. I will try not to put in my contacts and then head straight to Twitter.
