Leanne's idea of listing thirteen things about ourselves sounds like fun. Its a way to join in... and the fact that it can be fiction of non-fiction is an added enticement.
**1. I don't know every much about blogging technical thingys ('You link here and I'll link there and we'll end up linking in circles') but I'm willing to bluff.
**2. I'm only on number two and I'm already drawing a blank. But its the first drawing I've done in a long time. Oh dear.
**3. There's a sink full of dishes waiting to be washed, but checking my favorite blogs comes first every morning.
**4. My first 'stop' each morning is at Sheila Hudson's blog and then on to her friends' list. It is thoroughly enjoyable and I love seeing the art work that is shared.
**5. I'm concerned about whether or not I can come up with thirteen items.
**6. I only drink coffee (I'm a Starbuck's snob) when I have some of Folger's Cafe Latte mix (mocha almond jive only) to add to it. Love the flavor!
**7. I'm "retired" and have just begun drawing my Social Security benefits. Its called "creative living" but I'm enjoying it... A LOT!!
**8. My favorite color is a deep rich yellow and all colors of green follow closely behind.
**9. I didn't realize what my favorite color was until I was in my fifties.
*10. I live in a tiny one bedroom apt. with the idea that the bedroom will be the studio. My bad. The bedroom is storage. Hopefully I will be able to change that shortly. Afterall, I'm practically making a commitment here in public. Perhaps I'll shame myself into getting it done.
*11. Three more to go....
*12. I love the rain, but some sunshine here and there is a nice change of pace. Sunshine makes people smile more.
*13. I haven't picked up a paint brush or pen in months... we're talking like six months or more. I don't know what my problem is, but I'm sure the head of the list is 'lack of discipline'.
I made it. Now I have to read it over to see if there's anything I want to change my mind about. Okay...its a go.
