1. Picked and ate a couple tomatoes from my front porch container plant on July 4th. They were so much better than anything that comes from the store.
2. A nice rainstorm last night. Now I don't feel as guilty about not watering my lawn every day.
3. Waiting impatiently for several poetry books I ordered. Need to prime the pump before I hit writing poems again. Mostly anthologies. I couldn't settle on just one poet, so I went for the multitudes.
4. I made a small lino block print, edition of ten the other week. I think keeping editions small helps me feel like the print is actually doable instead of a mass production effort. It's also easier to run with little ideas. I'll pass on the next print exchange, however, it's moku hanga and I don't feel confident enough to tackle it yet.
