New Art!

Now up on Tumblr and Deviant Art!

Here's the Link:  I Bring You Tidings of Great Joy!

Here's hoping that this season brings you the most wonderful Christmas, Solstice, Hanukkah, Kwanza, and anything else I missed, for you, your friends and family!

Next week, I'll post my first 2 pages of my short UNITY story.  But hey, had to do the holiday picture while I still could ...  :)

-- Teresa


Probably due to that Big Storm.  It didn't hit us, but our internet comes from Oregon.  At least according to Internet Speed Test.

For the last 2 days, my computer tells me I'm both connected, but no network access.  And I'm having a lot of trouble loading pages and sending emails.  Though ... I seem to be able to do Facebook, Twitter and Livejournal.  Probably Tumblr too.  Weird.

But just in case I'm missing for a day or two, that would be why.

Hope you're all happy today.
And I have high hopes, because I've had great luck with their Artisan Bread in Five Minutes A Day.  I've made almost everything in that book, and been quite satisfied.  But now I'm going into the Dark and Forbidden Realms of GF Bread.  Because it's the Holidays.  And there are few things that say home and holidays more than the smell of crusty bread baking in a hot oven.

So ... we'll see.  I have a turkey dinner on slow-slow cooking, should be done by 7 tonight.  And then, gonna try to make a loaf.  And another tomorrow, since they claim it gets better after 24 hours of fermenting.  So yeah, gotta try that, if tonight's is less than perfect.

I'll let you know all about it tomorrow.

"Texas" in Norwegian is Crazy?

Hi all, Silly Question Time!

I recently saw a post somewhere about how Norwegians use the word "Texas" as slang for Crazy and Out of Control.  Is this really true?  And, how would that work in a sentance?  Of course, their sentance structure may be different from English, but ... if any of you have an example, I'd love to see it.

Thanks!  And hope you're all having a great holiday!

New Art UP via my New Year's Resolution

Sunday, I think, is gonna be my day.  I was going to go with Tuesday, but I'm not sure it'd always work out.  So Sunday it is.

And, new art -- my next ADVENTURES OF NANCY GIRL is up on the website.  I also now have a TUMBLR page too.  If you're a TUMBLR fan.

Next week I hope to have pages 1 and 2 from my short UNITY story.  I was going to do page one today ... but page two is talking heads, and kinda bland by itself.  So I'm gonna wait til next week.

Hope you're all having a wonderful day.


Hi all -- we're a bit behind with the decoration.  I usually start the last week of November, so we can get maximum enjoyment out of all the lights and sparklies.  But ... to my great surprise, and Jatina's, we had to rally to do it.  I suspect that's due to last year, and all the medical mishaps, but we're finally getting to it.  Thank goodness!

I'm also including a few extras, cuz when we looked at Jatina's camera card, we found other photos we like too.  Mostly, flowers and puppies.  So be wary.  If you click "under the cut", there be Images Here.

This is our Christmas Grapefruit Tree.  It's gotten pretty big, and we decided to make it our tree this year.  This pic doesn't do it proper justice, but it's adorable.  White lights and simple glass bulbs.  :)


Our counter at the side of the kitchen.  :)


We got our woodstove cleaned out -- thanks Al!! --  and so here's kitty enjoying the warmth.

We were moving the couch, earlier in the year, and here's Druscilla guarding the pillows because she was afraid the couch would not come back.  She love'th the couch.  Poor wee baby.


Jatina's Morning Glory!


One of our Sun Flowers.  :)


And a truly lovely photo of one of my Christmas Cactus flowers Jatina took.  Look at that, it's so pretty!

And that's it.
Hope you're having a good Holiday Season!  Be safe out there!

Made lots of foodies for Big Storm!

(I should also mention, btw, that yes, I have been feeling better.  My stomach is not absolutely perfect, but much improved.  And my energy is up too!  For the first time in AGES.)

So, back to the Big Storm! 

I have my Pork Chop Casserole, a half sugar/half stevia No Bake Cheesecake for Jatina, and GF Chocolate Chip, Pecan, Oatmeal and Peanut Butter cookies for me!  Sorry about no linkie -- found it on the back of my GF Flour mix package.  And oh my goodness -- so good!

And we have a Alladan Thermo filled with hot water, and another with brewed coffee.  We even have the ice chest set up with sodas and cream, so we don't have to open the refrigerator for drinks.

Now?  The storm will probably pass us by ...

But hey!  We haz cookies!

-- Teresa

P.S.  Yes, I did draw on the compy today.  Tho' only for an hour, so I intend to go back to that now, for an hour or two, or until we lose lights... 


Already battoning down the hatches here, and we're not even supposed to get the worst of it.

BE SAFE!  Stay Warm.  And, Cook Now!!!  Lights are probably going to be out soon.  Hm, I should probably fill our Thermos with hot water too....

New Art and a Early NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION.

It's 2014, and I feel like I've been rusting for some time.  A lot has happened, illnesses and various unfortunate events, but I think most of that is behind us now.  So enough.  Time to try to find my Art Self again.

To that end, I've decided that I'm going to draw Every Single Day.  That does not mean I'll have something worth publishing every day, but I am damned determined to have something worthwhile to put up EVERY week.

So, to get this game started, here is my first NANCY GIRL cartoon strip (I have several already done).  Next week, it might be a page from a comic book story, perhaps the one I've been working on the last few days, tentatively called "UNITY".  Or it might just be some black and white, dotted art.  But whatever it is, you'll find a link to it here, or on Twitter, or my Facebook page.  Time to burn off the rust, and get back to doing what I love.


Yay!  We missed it last year, but not this year!
