DID YOU KNOW: I have designed a set of official Welcome to Night Vale temporary tattoos! You can purchase them! I encourage you to get the designs actually tattooed on your body, because I’m not your mom.

You just have to send me pictures.

I finished the Iron Man painting in time for the baby shower. Spider-Man is still not finished but the baby isn’t due until September and may not notice. I just realized that some of my paints may be older than some of my favorite tumblr people.

Creating a baby shower gift for another relative who is doing a comic themed nursery. If I can make the paints do what I want with this one, then Spider-Man is next.

I painted this mural on my son’s wall when we moved here. He was in second grade and was fascinated with pretty much everything. He moved to his own home in April and it’s taken me this long to be able to paint over the mural. Not because I care about the artwork, but it means he’s really moved on and stuff. Also, we want to move and I don’t think the mural is a good home selling feature.

He still shows up when he knows I’m cooking his favorites. Today, I picked the first batch of figs from one of our trees and I’m going to roast them with rosemary and grill tuna steaks.

Hairy and Fuzzy.  We’re getting ready for inappropriate game night (Cards Against Humanity) with the boys. Brian leaves tomorrow for Camp Lejeune (and thus must shave). His leave was too short considering how long he was away.

I made his favorite dinner which is Korean beef wrapped asparagus.

Am I being a brat…

when I say I’m irked by gender reveal parties that are a thing now for expecting couples? I have to attend one tomorrow and the invitation states where they are registered for gifts. This is in addition to an actual baby shower next month.

should I just buy a pallet of diapers and skip the reveal shenanigans and then we can all let the child choose what gender they want to identify with in a couple of years and at that time we can serve them whatever color cake they prefer?

The Incredible Scrap Metal Animal Sculptures of John Lopez

Sculptor John Lopez was born and raised on a ranch in Western South Dakota. In the midst of a successful career in bronze sculpting, Lopez discovered an exciting new direction: scrap iron sculpting.

“I am never bored! I look forward to each new creation, and it is helping me grow and develop as an artist,” he says. As he John explains on his website.

My Kitchen-Fun-Day yielded enough snacks for my whole work week away from home-which is only 4 days this coming week and then I’m done. Forever!!!!  I’ve discovered that I love cooking and that it’s not much different than making any other kind of art. 

1. Chai concentrate. I brewed enough of this to get me through the week. It can be stored in the fridge in mason jars for about a week. I use one part concentrate to 2 parts coconut milk to make a latte. This brew heals all wounds both mental and physical - at least temporarily.

2. 6 @ 4oz. Jars of Panna Cotta. Actually the recipe started out as Panna Cotta but I added cocoa powder so I don’t know what to call it other than dessert for breakfast. 

3. Homemade Mayo. I can’t pronounce most of the ingredients on the store-bought stuff so it’s just too easy to make my own with [mild tasting] olive oil and yard eggs that the neighbor delivers once a week. This is plain but sometimes I add pureed chipotles in adobo sauce which is perfect for making spicy chicken salad.

4. "Granola"  without oats because I have no use for them. It’s mostly nuts, seeds, unsweetened shredded coconut with honey and coconut oil. I add dried cranberries after it cools. 

After this week I’ll go back to posting mindless doodles and art & stuff. I have projects and ideas that I can’t wait to work on with the Claire.

Since I’m only home for about 36 hours each week, I have a limited amount of time to drive my husband crazy so I’m putting the eggs away just like this.

I asked Joey if he was coming home one evening.
It still feels weird to have 21-year-old kids.

I can’t stop staring at this.

Yesterday I had to go to New Orleans from where I am working on the North shore of Lake Ponchartrain. The quickest route was to take the causeway that runs through the middle of the lake. It’s the 24 miles long-making it the longest bridge over water in the U.S. and 2nd longest in the world. I didn’t take this photo as I was white-knuckling it with two hands on the wheel. (It should link back to it’s original article).
The drive back was much easier in the dark because I couldn’t see the water in which I would likely plummet.
