A new computer is not a simple thing to add to my life.

The old Mac was 6 or 7 years old, and unfortunately, none of my old software runs on my lovely new machine.

Test scan

I have files to transfer from the backup disk- art, music and everything else, online banking complications to unravel – oh, and switch to a local credit union at the same time,  and the decisions on software to be purchased or downloaded and installed. Today I located and downloaded a driver for my old scanner – and it now works! I like my scanner  – I can scan transparencies –  I have many slides to someday digitalize.

Work from the road trip

My gouche and Holbein sketchbook were along for the ride. While painting on a moving train is tricky, (understatement?) I had more time then than as acting chef and chauffeur at chez mom. Really, it was a really good visit; I think we both had an excellent time.

Furlough Food Diary, July 2-July 11, 2010

Through the scorching first week in July, I kept my food diary in a Japanese style folding book. Note the frozen fruit bars – yum! And yes, I do enjoy a modest glass of red wine with my bedtime book. Gouache on paper that’s 6.5 inches square.

A year of eating deliberately

Friday, July 17  was my 1 year anniversary of drawing all that I’ve eaten  –  an exercise in the eccentric. And I think I’m in for another year.  Phil and I concluded the year  at Craigie On Main in Cambridge for a dinner that represented many of the things I’ve had the opportunity to think about as I’ve focused on eating food. We tried the tasting menu – and I more than filled the final page in the current sketchbook. The meal was both fabulous and overwhelming, and how could I be a half pound lighter the next day?
