Well, I'm sorry about yesterday's short,not-so-sweet post. I am glad yesterday is over. I'm feeling light and fluffy now.

I have a little news for those living in Indianapolis. There are some original penelopian illustrations for sale in a fun, colorful store called Blithe & Bonny (address: 341 Massachusetts Ave). Eighteen illos to be exact...and only until February 29th. If you are interested, you should stop by. If they do well, I was thinking about selling some illustrations on-line. Well, shoot...I just spilled the beans about one of my super secret surprises. What do you think of that idea?

Moving on: Something I noticed this morning was that the sun isn't waiting quite as long to come up in the mornings. It's so hard to drag out of bed while it's still dark. But it's changing slowly (too slowly). Bring it on, I say. I'm ready.

This Saturday is Valentine's Day. I love Valentine's Day. I am aware that some people think that it's a created holiday by Hallmark and candy stores. But I'm all for any kind of reason to celebrate, made up or not. The more celebrating, the better.
