I've paced my course of studies as to not be too overwhelming, so it's 24 credits for the year. I could up that if I want, but for now, this feels like the best fit. I'm a person who likes to feel the pool first, and ease my way in. My days of cannonballing right in over my head are over...I've learned a bit since then, lol.
Lots of birthdays coming up this weekend/week, and all of the parties to boot. April is a busy month in my house, but as soon as Nunni's birthday passes next week, I can breathe a sigh of relief, the birthdays for the household are finished! It's kind of like a second Christmas, with all the presents I have to buy all within a couple of week stretch.
I have been designated to make the fancy cakes for two of the babies...a Spongebob cake, and a Princess cake. While I do look forward to making them, since I love doing fun stuff like that...the concepts for these cakes have mushroomed, and now, laughingly, I am considering how we will transport these cake sculptures! I will have to either go back to the "drawing board" or we'll have to get an engineer involved for the transport!
The weather is nice today, and I am considering a hike into the mountains for a quick plein air session. I guess when I take Chorkie out, I will decide if the weather is really good enough for it today.
I leave you with the tiny, rapid, monochrome study above I did last summer....enjoy!
