Back in LA on this lovely Monday morning. I always feel a slight pull of sadness when I pull away from my driveway in Santa Ynez, but once I get here I slip easily back into our life and home down here. The weekend was a lovely escape during which I got to write, paint, visit with girlfriends (see below), collage, watch movies and read. I am eager to dive into work this week. There is more work to be done on this website, a fun logo project and my book. At this exact moment, however, I have a headache because I haven't had breakfast yet. We had to get on the road before 6:00am this morning, and it is now 9:45, so I need to head up to the kitchen before crankiness starts to seriously take hold. How's that for a mundane journal entry? At least now you get to see Rachel - I look at this picture and can just hear her saying, "I yam what I yam" and then gulping down a can of spinach.
