It's also a sign that autumn is nearly here - I've worn shorts in the house most of the time since I stopped work (and outside the house a lot of the time, but summer weather isn't always shorts weather here), but it's not so warm that I'm melting in jeans now.
I also paid in some of the change I counted on Friday - damn it weighs a lots, I've got a nigglingly sore back today. But I have more money bags, so I can count more of the change sometime this week.
I meant to read more of my book yesterday evening, but in the end I got an idea about the blend I'm doing for the current blending_star challenge, so mostly worked on that. Just after I went to bed I realised something I need to tweak on it, so I'll have to find a font for it today (after I've done the housework though). Then it's done :) I'm quite pleased with it, though a note for the future is if the challenge is themed on a film I've not seen (like, you know, most films) I need to look it up on IMDB first, I looked second this time and Thirteen is darker than I'd assumed from the pics I picked to work from, so finding a quote that fitted the feel of my blend was a bit trickier ;)
iconstillness closed voting last night, winners here. I entered:
which got 4 votes. The picture we were working from was a pretty cranky looking cat, I have to say. If I end up dropping a challenge, this may be one coz the pictures tend not to inspire me much straight off, and there's only ever one picture to work from.
