It was the first day in a long time that it wasn't so hot hot out, so I spent most of it getting my gardens back in order. Uncovered plants that had been overtaken by others. Put a stop to the morning glory plan to takeover. Kept the piece simple because I also had the CSArt distribution and Allan/Mike's House warming party.It was a piece where i just started it with no clear direction and poof! There it is! Peace and fabulousness.

Had a great day in the town of New Ulm catching up with my friend Gayle. Before I hung out with her had breakfast at a tiny diner listening to rural life convos and window shopped small bookstores and shops. Did a simple pen and ink sunset in green. Peace and fabulousness!

Today's piece came from an annoying nights sleep. Over and over and over .....I dreamt about ..ready? A math problem! Math! !! Even when I tried to redirect the dream to a project idea, the math dream would over take it. So the piece shows the beginning of the project in my dream that was overtaken by a math equation that included the number 429. Peace and fabulousness!

As I start my first week of break, I am still in go, go, go mode thus waking up at 6:30 this morning. I also dreamt about my students all night! I'll be catching up on house and yard projects, starting some new art pieces, organizing work spaces, cleaning the garage,errands,getting a physical, car recall stuff,blah blah blah! Hoping a week of this will bring me down to the point where relaxation can kick in. I did watch "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" last night instead of mowing! Scandalous!! Today's pen and ink I did while listening to guest Pastor Nate (whom had me feeling skeptical at first thus the reason I started drawing, but in the end a valuable life point was made). A very simple piece again today. Still can't figure out how to take pictures of pen and inks up close so that every pen line isn't showing. It looks so washed out and faded compared to the original that has dark and vibrant colors. Peace and Fabulousness! Oh threw in a bonus sunflower picture!

We did it! 6 weeks of learning and fun complete! Spent half the day in a tired fog. For a bit I thought I had taken my sleep meds by accident. Tonight I'm taking it easy and doing a simple really simple pen and ink so I don't fall asleep and lose an eye.LOL Peace and fabulousness.

Wow day 200!!!! What a day!! Power outage at work, everyone and their mother in the building, at least 3 hours spent registering student art pieces into the state fair, tabulating student final score increases and ...mind went blank. :) Did a pen and ink creature. 2 days till break ..... Peace and fabulousness.

I got to work a bit earlier this morning and worked on my green project, so I wouldn't forget. I did a pen and ink pickle. Why a pickle you ask? No clue. Why not a pickle! :) This final week of Summer S.L.A.M. is like running the last .2 mile of a marathon. You know the end is near, but you have to push through to get there. So many loose ends to tie up and the normal everyday things, plus "THE REPORT". It'll all get done, it always does. :) Peace and fabulousness!

In a moment of panic, I realized as I was getting ready for bed, I hadn't done anything green for the day. The day just got away form me. So forgetting what I did for day 193, I did another green tree with pen and ink. Tomorrow is Friday, sweet Friday. Peace and Fabulousness!

Mondays....quite tired. But it's a gorgeous summer day out and I'm alive. Wasn't sure what to for the piece of the day. So I grabbed my scissors, paper and glue when I swung by my house. I usually don't want to do my art while house sitting but did a paper piece VERY carefully. Looking forward to and hoping for a great night sleep. peace and fabulousness!

OMG I'm tired today! Actually took a half hour nap! Unheard of! By the time I got to my friend's house after I left the bachelorette party, fed the cat, cooled down the bedroom and got situated it was late. The birds woke me up at 5:30am which was fine since I had to get stuff done inorder to get to Fridley by 7:30am. After volunteering at church (both services) for 4 1/2 hours and doing some gardening at my place, I am tired and still don't feel the best from the heat. Best part is not being hungry, maybe I'll finally lose those last 10 pounds! I'm going to do a pen and ink today, a type of zentangle. That's the goal anyway. Peace and fabulousness!
Forgot to type in this entry yesterday due to it actually being cool enought to mow and weed, plus go to a bachelorette party for Ms Stephanie! I did a paper piece of a sad spotted worm on a branch. I had another idea for the worm that was a little too twisted funny, so I'm saving it for another day! Peace and fabulousness!

Today is suppose to be the last day of this heat wave! Whew! I hope so...It's amazing how much energy it can sap from you compared to a warm sunny day in the winter which will energize you to no end. I am grateful for the A/C in my house, though trying to use it sparingly, especially after seeing my last water bill. Can't imagine what the electic bill will be. Doh! Actually had a little extra time this morning to work on a pen and ink. Don't know what it means or where the idea "bubbled" up from, but here it is. Just sort of "popped" into my mind. (I need sleep or caffeine!) Did think of a twist to it but it was too late to go there. Oh well next time.

I swear this heat is melting my brain. My creative juices and skills are a little off kilter. But push on, carry on. I have to remember that I'm just doing something creative everyday for a year and that it doesn't have to be great or perfect, just creative. I don't know if it's the humidity and high dew points, but it just seems like my pen and inks are not working well on this paper. It's my favorite for pens, but it doesn't seem to be holding the ink well. oh well. So I had a little time after work before I could run some errands in my car which from here on out will be know as the mini bake oven. SO I did a pen and ink. Looks blotchy in the photo but better in reality, I think. Need to go to eat lunch! Peace and fabulousness!

Forgot my camera at home so I still haven't posted the pictures from this weekend. So I'll work on it tomorrow. It was so hot today is that when I pick the raspberries they tasted hot. My inner 5 year old finds the worms on my raspberry bushes fascinating. I think they're called inch worms. They almost seems animated.So I did a pen and ink of one. Peace and fabulousness This on is kind of small so it didn't photograph well. :(
