Today

You know what 'they' say.... Today is the first day of the rest of your life. Well, for me today is Thursday and ohmygosh where'd the week go?

Below are a couple of shots of the small mom-and-pop store across the street. They have a bright neon OPEN sign in the windows. (there actually two, but one is behind a screen and doesn't show up very well.) The little sign, turned on its side in order to fit the small window, always attracts my attention. Its so cheery and bright, especially at dusk when everything is getting dark. I'm waiting to be able to see it at dusk in drizzling rain.
 

 


Today I must chain myself to the easel. Although a real chain is not used, I do get blocked into it when I'm really to paint. There's a small plastic set of drawers to the left of me, a wooden TV tray to the right of me.... and my chair does not slide easily. So, once I get set up, its not all that easy to get away. I wonder if thats one of the reasons I procrastinate? hmmm... naw. Procrastination is just me.

So... here I go. Well, as soon as The View is over. (Its much better with Whoopi there. She maintains control without yelling SHUT THE F**K UP!! She does it with fitnesse... "Let me finish, gorgeous." Style, huh.) When its over then I will put myself into position until I get some decent progress done! Honest. I will. Sigh.

That does look like a neat little store and I can imagine at dusk with the lights on kind of cozy.

There is an artist Nicole Caufield or something like that, I will go get the link..She does wonderful paintings of inside coffee houses like a starbucks type of place. Her work is all colored pencil. I'll find her website and post it as my blog highlight.

I hope we get to see progress on the painting. I also hope we get to see some more sketches from you soon.

Now I can see that the one was Natalie...good job.

Laura, Erin and Hannah just left and Cayden will probably be a handful today as his buddy left and it is damp and chilly outside so the play area is muddy..no outside play today.

We are thinking of taking him on a little walk to make the day go quickly. I think we have MacKenzie about 1 today for a while.

......will be checking in later to see if you got the chains off...
