Hi, I am addicted to toned paper now. Please send help so I can go back to oil painting and my nice white sketchbooks and not get sidetracked. Hahaha.

I bought a pot of these huge yellow mums at the grocery store the other day. When Molly was about one and a half I guess she and Jason went to the grocery store and he said offhand “I guess we should buy some flowers for mummy!” and then for about half a year she would say that exact phrase every time we went in the store. And now even though she is four and hates the grocery store, every time I walk in and see the flowers I think “We should buy some flowers for mummy! Yep. And we will. Bahaha!” (Sometimes I say that all out loud including the evil laugh and people give me side eye).

But actually I have found some of my favourite plants at our local grocery store! I got my purple oxalis triangularis, my lemon button fern and many more cute plants.
