Speaking of...

Om nom nom...oh, hi,'s hard to speak with my mouth full...just a sec...

Speaking of noms, I have been craving egg salad on sourdough though, not corn, for about three days now. I tried to go a local sandwich shop called the High Nooner. Are they just a local chain or do any of you have one in your area? They have a sandwich named after the business that is egg salad, lettuce, tomato, BACON, and (wait for it....) CREAM CHEESE. OMG, it is like the best sandwish ever.

Yah, I said "sandwish" instead of "sandwich" but you know, that's what it turned out to be...a wish. Every time I go by there they are closed. Apparently they are only open until 3pm. Which is a bummer for me, since I don't get off work until 5, and there's no way I'd make it to one and back on my lunch break.

So today, on the way home from work, I stopped by the store and bought eggs and sourdough bread. I was so excited about the dang eggs I forgot to buy tomatoes and lettuce! (I thought I would forgo the bacon and cream cheese...I just didn't want to mess with it.)

My "official" egg salad recipe is:
one dozen eggs, hard boiled
3-4 lg glops of mayonnaise (none of that "miracle" whip crap)
a lg dollop of mustard
2 large globs of sweet pickle relish

Slap between two pieces of bread and wah-la!

So anyway, now I feel better and am up to posting.

My wrist is slowly getting better; I am drawing more. I have several banners posted at my new Etsy shop, no takers yet, but it's new, so we'll see how it goes.

Speaking of Etsy, look what I got for my birthday!

They are from joy elizabeth ceramics. She mostly does birds, but I asked her if she would be willing to do some chickens for me, since I collect them. (I know, I know, chickens are birds...but you know what I mean.) She obliged and then Secret Agent Man bought them for me for my birthday. They are teeny tiny and so-o-o cute!

I got another "present" recently, too, although it was quite unexpected! I found a new blog to read, by artist Rebekah Leigh. She also has an Etsy shop. A while back she had a contest and was giving away some of her artwork. I left a comment on her blog, not really intending to enter the contest, but turns out I was a winner! Yea! And the other thing I didn't know, until it showed up at my door, was that the picture she sent me just happened to be my favorite one from her shop! (Or maybe she's a mind reader!)

So now I'm just hanging out, watching some bad "Syfy" tv and blogging. Secret Agent Man is off on a top secret mission (or something like that) and I'm just laying around being lazy until he gets back.

Tomorrow I draw!

What have you been up to? Anything fun?


  1. Art prizes and a winner sandwich. doesn't get much better than that.

    Now I'm hungry. And, BTW, sourdough is my favorite bread for most sandwiches...

  2. Ah thank you for the blog love!! :-) I'm glad you like your birdy, I really must get on with drawing some more birds with odd 'socks'!
