Dear, diary.

No not really, but kind of.

I had along weekend. I spent the last 2 days fighting a cold, I heard laughter is the best medicine, so I did just that - laugh, a lot.
I went to work today, thinking I was A-ok, but as the day went by my head just kept getting stuffier and stuffier.  I also did quite the acrobatic number on Otis this morning, and threw my back out. I'm currently laying on the couch, unable to move, and also high on advil and tussin. Fingers crossed the cold is gone, and that my back feels a little better tomorrow. I know Otis is laughing for sure.

I finished my Tim Gunn painting last week, but I've been bad about sharing, I also finished my black and gray flapper girl painting, I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.

All these and more are up for sale in my Etsy shop :)

It's been so nice here in Portland lately, well other than the last 24 hours at least, rain, rain and more rain. I keep seeing all these people riding bicycles everywhere, and it's quite wonderful. It has made me want a road bike so bad! I'm also falling in love with everything bicycle these days.

Cute stuff, huh!
I'm gonna get some rest. Have a great night! xoxo.

Jeg visste at sykkelmaniaen i Portland ville nå deg tilslutt.. kos deg med en titt på et par totalt uoppnåelige, men fantastisk flotte sykler fra nabolaget ditt: http://vanillabicycles.com/ og http://iraryancycles.com

God bedring!
