Mondaily in transition...

My living space is weird. The upstairs is painfully crowded, the downstairs is echoingly empty. Literally, it echos. A few last things to move out to the tent tonight, and we'll be camping out upstairs in exile through most of tomorrow. I have, like a genius, managed to pack my most vital art supplies in a drawer that is completely blocked in by other furniture. I did not discover this until I went to draw, of course. Now I've got art withdrawal pangs and I am ITCHING to finish Fantastrix. I didn't get my computer out all weekend, either - it's tucked away on my desk in the basement, so harder to pull out than it usually is. So, no art from me until Wednesday at the absolute earliest. I am going to try to get some writing done, but chances are... I won't.

I DID get the next Torn World installment up, hallelujah! You can read it at the site or at our Livejournal page.

Guppy and I went to the park and the grocery store, but I forgot to make bread in time. Our upstairs camp-out tomorrow may be a little odd. Lots of fresh veggies to eat, at least.

Today's photo is not a baby. It is a photo of 'romanesco,' or what Jake and I have been calling 'fractal broccoli*.' For obvious reasons!



That's all the time I've got! Probably won't blog again until I have a floor and my house is back in order, so I'll see you on the other side!


*Fractal Broccoli would be an AWESOME band name.

Romanesco is called "fractal broccoli"... except that it's actually a variety of cauliflower :-)

Brassica vegetables disagree with me nearly as much as Alliums, but that stuff is pretty! You're welcome!

Fractal Broccoli is the best band name ever. And wow is that stuff cool-looking. I don't think I would have even identified it AS broccoli, had you not told us that's what it is.

Good look with the in-house camping! Looking forward to hearing how it all went.

See the link in the comments above - it's apparently a cauliflower. But delicious! (And I stand by fractal broccoli as the best band name ever.)

PS, I just got another really neat plant for my garden - the spiral aloe grows in amazing, symmetrical spirals as it gets bigger, and ends up 3 feet wide and a couple of feet tall :)
