{interview} A moment with E...

E ~ Elishia
Artist, Auslan Interpreter, Blogger, Op Shopper, Vintage lover...and more...

 admiring: my drawing 'Seen not heard'. It has been framed, is now hanging on my wall and will be staying there! Its pretty exciting as its only the third artwork of mine that I have decided to keep.

remembering: to take each day as it comes and to allow myself as much rest as I need.

discovering: Pear cider. So good!

planning:  A dinner party some time next month. Entree will be pears with blue cheese wrapped in prosciutto, dessert will be home made ice cream. I'm thinking Choc cherry ice cream or Lemon, Vodka and chili sorbet.
Dinner will be selected from my Sean Moran cook book 

 learning: my limitations

cooking: This is the time of year when I start doing lots of warm salads.
The last one I made was roasted pumpkin with beans, cucumber and sauteed red onion topped with a balsamic, garlic and thyme dressing with toasted slivered almonds.

loving: The Jacaranda's and Agapanthus that are gracing the streets of Adelaide at the moment

telling your friends about:  how much I miss them (most of my dearest friends live far, far away!)

creating: I'm working on a painting of a young woman surrounded by balloons. The process going to be challenging, exciting and dreadful all at the same.

trying to avoid: the inevitable crash that I get at the end of each year.

laughing at: Black books
"I've got to get a girlfriend, just for the summer, until this wears off. She'll
be a summery girl. She'll have hair. She'll have summery friends who know how to
be outside. She'll play tennis and wear dresses and have bare feet, and in the
autumn, I'll ditch her, because she's my summer girl!"

fixing: I can't really claim to be fixing it personally but I have just gotten someone else to fix my vintage typewriter. I also hemmed (i use the term loosely) some curtains this week, does that count?

eating: I'm addicted to Healthybake Sourdough Rye, fruit, nut and seed bread. I have it with almond paste and strawberry jam. Devine!

missing: The studio my Dad built me in Heyfield. So much. So, so much.

traveling: I'm up to book 13 of 14 in a fantasy series. I call that a journey for sure!

dreaming about:
A less cluttered life and the ability to teleport.

growing: Zen salvaged some Agapanthus plants from a house that was being demolished.
They are now thriving in our garden, some are 5 foot tall! The flower heads are just starting to break free!

Season 8 of America's So you think you can dance and re-runs of Bones.

odd things about me....   I can't skip. 
I love hot banana with melted cheese. 
I hate being hand-fed.  
I have an intense disliking of hair once its left the body.
I will take down pictures or decorations in a hotel if I don't find them visually pleasing....
...even if I'm only staying for a night.

That's my Elishia.
