And this is what Deanna sent me (remember the PIF?)! A small and lovely encaustic painting! I'm so Finnish that almost all colorful birds are parrots to me, and it happens to be so that a parrot is papukaija in Finnish. Ha, a bean Kaija, because papu is bean. (I have no idea why papukaija is what it is.) I've been hearing a lot of parrot jokes throughout my life, and this was probably the first time I was really happy because of the name coincidence!
I wish we could move house already! I have so many new pretty things waiting to be a part of our new home...
I'm making progress with the book, but there's still a whole lot of work to do. I think I can finish it in time. In fact I'm so sure about finishing it that I feel like taking a little break... Bad idea. Now I need to get back to work.
