weather

I had been planning to post some cheery spring-themed images, 'tis the season after all, but it's been so gray and wet and blah here in SF for just about ever... and as much as I love spring in all its pink-flowered glory, I'm not feeling it just yet. So I'm doing the next best thing, or perhaps the best thing, really, which is posting a drawing my husband Jeff Heermann did last week - of he and I, in the rain. Isn't it nice? I like how it shows us sort of cowering - I think a lot of people in our neck of the woods are just kind of defeated by the incessant rain and gloom. Sorry to whine - things could be so much worse - but it does get to be a bit of a grind. Please Mr. Sun, come our way?

Jeff's artwork is strange, and wonderful, just like him. I love him lots. We have recently been chasing the rainy day blues away with beer, pizza, DVDs of 1970s British sitcoms, and our sweet and goofy cat Chuy. I guess things are okay after all.

so that is what happens when artists marry.... - I love the sketch!

And look at the bright side of the SF grayness - no pink flowered glory = no pollen! I think that I've been suffering from a pollen hangover as of late. It's everywhere.... ugh. snif. wheeze.

It's a romantic picture too as he has his hand around your shoulders. Very sweet. :)

Wow, it would be so great to have an artistic husband. My husband claims that he is equally right- AND left-brained, but so often when I show him things I make or art I like, he just looks at me blankly and I want to say, "Hello? Hello? Anyone in there?" Maybe this happens with artsy husbands, too!

Anyway, great sketch!

I love cheesy 70's british sitcoms! I havne't seen that one before. My favorite was called "Good Neighbors" and it featured a couple that went off the grid....in the suburbs. They had neighbors that didn't totally approve of their choices. It was pretty dang funny. They dub up their front yard to start a leek garden and had a goat for milk. Look it up! It was pretty good! Love the pic your hubby drew as well. Those goofy guys...gotta love them.
