A week of breakdowns

Last week was like the black hole of productivity for me. Let's see...

  1. Our plumbing conked out, which meant we had to get our pipes replaced by way of a now huge hole in our guest bedroom where the ceiling used to be.
  2. We discovered the starter on our car died after we came out of the grocery store with arms full of groceries.
  3. My internet connection has been refusing to cooperate (fingers crossed for this post.)
  4. I have what I *hope* is not turning into bronchitis!

Still I did manage to eek out this painting, which brings to mind the lovingly tended gardens of Tuscany. Ah, la dolce vita. Life is, after all, on the whole very sweet.
