Vampire Subrosian’s Halloween ๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿ‘ป

My husband asked me to make a Halloween wallpaper featuring his little Subrosian persona. Specifically, he wanted a pose similar to a vampire Stitch Disney pin that he showed me (so if you find the pose familiar, that would be why). I’m pretty happy with how it turned out!

It’s Almost Here ๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all having a nice day. It’s almost Fall –tomorrow! So I’ve already gone and updated the blog’s look. I also made myself a new icon, and I guess tomorrow I will clean house so I can decorate on Thursday. My friend Mandie is coming for a “Little” playdate on Saturday night so I want everything to look just right.

I’m sitting here taking a break from work while a lot of people work on our roof, which is being replaced. There’s kind of a nasty smell in the air from whatever they’re using. My little guard-cat isn’t very thrilled that they are so close to our special “hanging out together” area…

I’ve been very productive, both in art and around the house. Commissions are progressing nicely, I’ve also done personal art and a few gifts for Christopher, and even worked on my book. I’ve taken care of the snails and continued with my exercises. Here are some photos of today’s walk…

I’m PMSing now, so I’m in a bit of a “fragile” mood as always, and everything I feel, good and bad, is super intense. I’m trying to redirect my impatience and anxiousness into my exercise routine, and just, looking forward until I feel normal again. ๐Ÿ˜“

My Cubanitos are doing well. Here they are exploring and eating after their most recent tank clean:

My biggest Roman snail seems to be on the way out. Not much I can do for him at this point. I’ll miss him when he goes, he had an old crack on his shell that made him very recognizable. I really do love my snails. I know it seems strange or silly to people, but I do adore them for so many different reasons.

One is purely from a scientific observation angle. Another is my “Little” self that has always found them adorable. And, they are so vulnerable, yet ridiculous looking, in such an endearing way. I really do enjoy my little pets.

Speaking of my little pets… this is a very low quality photo, but it is just so sweet. Rosie fell asleep in a tiny box:

I’m going to post a bunch of art now, and then catch up on housework before I go and beat my feelings into the sidewalk. That means going for a long walk. ๐Ÿšถโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’ฆ

Sunday Wind-Down ๐Ÿฆ‹

Hello everyone. Weekend is winding down… As planned, I was up before 7am, went on my walk. I saw some cute and very active butterflies:

Once home, mowed the lawn. Then I showered and Christopher and I went out on some errands. We went to Home Depot and to shop for groceries, but simple errands though it was, I enjoyed that little time together because we were both in a happy mood.

At Home Depot I spotted a Jeep with a really cool decal!

Throughout the afternoon Christopher and I watched movies and enjoyed each other’s company –as well as the leftovers from last night’s incredible dinner. I worked on some more art and then it was time for my second walk. Since I walk at dawn and sunset I’m carrying mace now, because Christopher worries… he got me a pink one:

I snapped some pretty pictures of the sky and moon on my second walk…

Tomorrow, very early in the morning, they are coming to redo our roof. So many roofs in our neighborhood are being redone. I hope that doesn’t affect my day. I don’t think it should. Above all I want to be able to not interrupt my exercise routine.

I guess that’s all for today, I’m signing off. Night, everyone!
