Ants agh! I have been battling them this morning. I am happy it has finally started to warm up, but I am less than happy that that means the ants have returned. They seem to especially like my desk for some reason. Normally I have a desk spider that helps keep them in check, but right now she doesn’t seem to be doing her job. Now that I think about it I haven’t seen her in a couple of days.

Lately I have felt like the world is giving me little gifts of happiness in a weird way. See, I love mythology. I still have the opening of the Odyssey memorized. I had a teacher actually realize that she couldn’t test me on mythology and since the test, she gave needed updating had me write a new one for the class instead. I am strongest on Greek and Roman but I know quite a bit about Norse and have dabbled in any others that I could as well. Anyway, a challenge that has mythology as its base is just awesome, and that was only one part of the option! Oh and I discovered a reading challenge that has me excited as well!

When I start watercoloring an image the first thing I do is pull out the colors that I think are going to work for each part, sometimes that gets changed along the way. Some images I can only figure out a color or two to start and the rest comes to me as I go along. This one I have to admit I kept changing where and what I thought the colors should be and where they should go.
