Been a weird couple of days. Last night I couldn't turn off my brain and didn't get to sleep until 6:30am. I woke up at 8am to meet an artist whose original watercolor I was buying at Claire de Lune coffee shop. I'm coma tired right now. The artist's name is Martha Ambrose and I saw her original watercolor titled "Blue" hanging up in Claire de Lune coffee shop. It's a beautiful piece of art and I called her three weeks ago asking to buy it. She had to wait until the end of her exhibit before she could take it down from the walls. This morning was my first time meeting her in person. She's a sweet and very cute girl, and I'm pleased to own one of her paintings. It's a wonderful experience to buy a piece of artwork that you love, from a person who is so genuinely kind. It's my third purchase of original artwork, and I've been fortunate that all of the artists have been incredibly sweet people, in addition to being incredibly talented.

I'm sitting at home and it's raining hard. This is the first daytime rain shower I can remember this year that arrived with any force. Hopefully this storm continues eastward and delivers Colorado with some well needed water.

Went onto Rick Steve's European Travel webpage and purchased some gear for my European trip coming up. Bought a cool backpack and other assorted stuff. My task this weekend is to get a loose itenerary planned so that I can go to the travel agent on Monday and know which city I'm flying into, out of, and the train tickets I need to connect them all together.
