A perfect day. No packages to wrap. Nothing to bake. No lists of errands to run. Leftovers for dinner. This day was mine to do with as I please, for the first time in many weeks. I went to the library and came home with a stack of new books to read. I browsed my favorite websites and rented a movie. I thought about the benefits of going to the gym as I nibbled biscotti with my cup of coffee. Then I drew this holiday bouquet which I’ve been enjoying from a distance for the past week. (My scanner, which may need to be replaced soon, kept cutting off the top, no matter how I positioned the page...)
I love the white lilies in the arrangement. They looked beautiful against the dark evergreens and red pepper berries. The lilies are lovely, but their scent (warm urine) makes me feel nauseous. They were placed on a table in the entryway, away from the living room. As soon as I was done drawing them, I threw the lilies outside for the deer.
