Still no scanner, and bad-8:30pm-lighting, but ... one more little drawing to color your life vegan.
I used to not like bell peppers. They tasted bitter to me and felt dry and chewy. Then, I ate a a fresh one from the farmers market -- whole other vegetable! Couldn't even be related to whatever re-hydrated green slices I'd had before. Now, when in season, I'll eat green, orange, yellow, or red sliced raw, fresh, as juicy as an orange, and so vitamin-packed they stain the counter with their color.
Alas. It's finally fall here; the rain is supposed to return soon, and tomorrow is supposed to be below 60 degrees. I don't mind, but it means no more fresh, local bell peppers, my sign that summer is over. They're such a fleeting freshness here in Portland, but the abundance of long-living, super-crisp apples fills in the gap.
Here are the original peppers modeling for my drawing. I think they got to show off their best sides.
Tomorrow's Friday. I hope to be back with a more exciting post. Not that I have any ideas yet. I'm just trusting I'll have some time and energy. For now, it's off to bed. Thanks for reading!
PS: the title of this post -- isn't that an old Dr. Pepper jingle? Wait ... I'll go look it up. ACK! It is! It is! And it just transformed me into a tiny tot sitting on the kitchen floor watching TV while my mom makes dinner. Wow. I wish commercials (especially political campaign commercials) would go back to this groovy-friendly style.
