:: Devil’s Ivy ::

My view of human nature is that all of us are just holding it together in various ways — and that’s okay, and we just need to go easy with one another, knowing that we’re all these incredibly fragile beings.
— Alain de Botton

I sketched this last night while my husband was watching the Olympics. It is a Golden Pathos Vine or commonly known as Devil’s Ivy. I was wondering what the mesh-like background was and I just realized that when I took the picture I took it in the screen porch. So you can see the mesh -)

I have been working on difficult computer tasks these past few weeks and I am happy to say that they are finished. First, I needed to transfer my self-hosted blog on Bluehost.com to WordPress.com as I was simply getting too many spam and unwanted subscribers. I was getting up to 50 a day! So now my blog is safely hosted on WordPress.com and the added bonus is that it is hassle-free. Yeah! The second computer task was to reformat my main computer as it was getting very sluggish and I had not reformatted it for awhile. I erased the whole drive, and reinstalled all of my software Now it feels like a new computer, even though it is 6 years old. Very happy -)

We have our Welcome Back Breakfast this coming Wednesday and the regular college semester is starting in exactly one week! So guess what I will be doing this week? Preparing for my courses, one new and one not so new.
