It's 11.10pm and I'm still struggling with this blinking chapter! It's been 'nearly finished' since Saturday. :(

Just before 1am we had an earthquake - seriously! I have never experienced anything like it and really don't have the words to describe it. Some say it was like an HGV going past, but that's really an inadequate description. The low-level rumble that just preceded the shaking was other-worldly. It really gives one a new appreciation of the forces of nature!

I have decided to finally start contributing again. These photos are from my kitchen, looking out toward Hollywood Ave. I have included them for two reasons: 1. glass is hard 2. it resembles my lack of motivation to leave my apartment and venture into the cruel winter landscape. (although with all that glass, the temperature in the apt. is pretty consistent with outdoors)

I went to a 'Using Creativity in Research' course today. As one of the tasks, I had to copy this portrait (bottom hand right corner) by Lucien Freud. I'm petrified of drawing; totally intimidated by it. But I'm quite pleased with this effort. It also features as my Day 4 Thing-A-Day contribution.

Christa has decided that February's theme should be 'hard' - stop sniggering at the back there! I completely failed to stick to the theme last month - will I do better in Feb?
This is a shot of my lovely Lemon Polenta Cake, made for Katy's 'Zombie-hygge' evening. 'Hard' because it involved me following a recipe...which I always find a challenge. The cake also doubles up as my first 'Thing-A-Day' contribution.
