i’m so glad it rained today. i’m sure lots of folks are happy to see that. it sure makes for a nice cool evening and my plants might make it another couple weeks. i wonder about those fires… since i don’t have a tv, i don’t know their status. it hasn’t been too smokey but they could still be burning…
what i have been doing is painting. before i became a restaurant maniac, i lived a much simpler existence, kept mostly to myself, and spent lots of time painting and watering plants in my greenhouse. it’s been over 4 years since satchel’s pizza began and i’ve painted some but nothing seems to be flowing like it once did…until now. a few weeks back i pictured the first painting in a series that now consists of 4 framed pieces. tonight i started a fifth and so this new found inspiration has me pleased. i love to be in the studio. i could easily stay up until 3 or 4 am painting, but i make myself break away before midnight. the paintings reflect my composure and responsibility, as they are tight, orderly, and somewhat tame. one day i will show you more photos of them.
i keep meaning to tell about our abdominator contest and show you the winning abs, but then i write about something else and get tired. i’ll get to it, i promise. i know people are dying to know who won and see a good ab photo.
