Day 365 (731)

Last day of 2013. What a year! Invisible and numb. Probably the most stressful year I've encountered in a long long time. Hoping that next year is a year of dreams and possibilities come true. In spite of not feeling the best today was a day of my OCD cleaning and preparing for the new year. The house is in order and ready to go. Will this blog continue? Tune in tomorrow and see. Happy new year! Peace and fabulousness.

Day 364 (730)

Getting my normal ocd things done for the new year. Lol.  Don't know why I get things cleaned and in order pre new year every year, since it doesn't really impact the new year.  Just a part of my perfectionist quirk I guess.  Always the hope for change and...
Still not sure what I'll do for 2014, maybe expanded version of creatures.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 360 (725)

Just realized my day #s are off by 2. Duh! Oh well.  Less than a week to go!  Not sure if I'm going to continue, but after 2 years it's a bit of a habit now.  What do you think? Should I continue creatures?

Day 337 (702)

Friday afternoon I can hear your sweet call. So close and yet so far. Lots of sleepy loud students today.  Backdrops disassembled and stored away for another year.  The Christmas Program is like Thanksgiving dinner so much planning and prep for a meal that's over so quickly, but oh so good.

Peace and fabulousness.

Day 326 (691)

Sunday.  Trying to get these backdrops done.  Had to take a mini break and do a bit of cleaning. CMA's are providing an amazing soundtrack to paint to.  Really want to create for myself.  Muse always speaks loudest when I'm creating for others.  Visions of moving are reappearing. Focus, focus, focus. Sigh.

Day 324 (689)

The end of the day/Friday finally is here! I'm glad I left work when I did. A huge accident happened a block from my house at about the time I normally would come home. 
Even though I enjoy painting the backdrops so I decided to make an appointment for a massage after all is said and done, kind of a carrot to dangle in front of me.
Peace and fabulousness.

Yesterday I hit the wall.  Did get a creature done albeit a simple one.  Not as simple as tonight's.  Today was just an odd day, computer glitch during breakfast duty, tours, and hyped up kindergarteners.  Inspite it all, pretty caught up at work and got a lot done on the backdrops tonight!

Day 320 (685)

Last night was a brutal Ambien night.  I'm so want to be done with it. It's like a Jekyll and Hyde thing.  All that I'm trying be or not be surfaces in a big way.  Tried to capture a bit of that in today's piece.

Day 319 (684)

Today's weather matched my mood. Things I'd like in ny life are most likely never going to happen. As the world lives it... Just need to find acceptance. Somewhere.
