Today is a “thinking” day.  I have so many stories that want to be written, the chicklets are posing in their Valentine’s Day costumes, but I’m not painting them, and they don’t like it when I ignore them. I have one painting done, waiting for a story to be written, and I already know what to write but I’m just so busy in my head, with fairies, and snow storms and squirrels and chicklets and books wanting to be read, and Emily being snowed in and…and…I’m going to make tomato soup (from a can) and add rice.  Maybe that will help.  LOLOLOLOL  I don’t think so.

Oh, and Goodreads showed up in my e-mail, so I had to look up all the books that looked interesting but I didn’t like any of them ,and that’s not all…there’s this cool documentary called MOVE on Netflix, which is all about dance and I started watching that last night and want to see more.  I went to bed before 2 a.m., so that was good, since I get up at around 7.  So much to do and see and learn and read and write…sigh.  I just need to chill, and do one thing at a time.  It’s hard to do that when I’m excited about EVERYTHING!  Oh, I’m also making artwork again, which I haven’t done in a very long time. Other than that…nothing much going on.  🙂

  1. That is an interesting, unexpected painting. Would love to know what was going on inside your head when you painted it 😉

    I understand the things in your head competing for attention… though not to the same degree. I’m always awed by your talents and how diverse and plentiful they are. I’m sure the chicklets will be a bit patient with ya.

    • I just did that with a black sharpie. It’s not a painting. It’s more of a scribble. But thank you anyway. I’m always scribbling on whatever is close at hand. 🙂 We got about 8″ or more of snow. Em was snowed in. She’s fine and eating great. LOL After last winter I have her doorway two steps from my back door. When I went out to feed her tonight (again) the screen door froze shut. LOLOL I had to breath on it and then hit it really hard to open it. Otherwise I would have had to rip out the screen.

  2. Love your painting. One could call what you are experiencing….vegetable soup of the mind. I always have more to do and want to do. So hard to choose especially since I run out of energy so I must choose well. Happy you are painting.

    • Oh, thank you. That was just something I did with a sharpie. But that’s a good name for it, vegetable soup. LOLOL It was so dark all day long everyone I spoke to was laying around doing nothing at all. Now that it’s 10:00 p.m. I’m waking up, which means I’ll be up until 2 again. It is so hard to choose where to start. I hope you are feeling well and that the right dog will find you soon.

      • Not many can do what you do with a sharpie. I am often awake at 3am. I usually can’t go back to sleep so I just start my day. I struggle with my state of health but keep on going as much as possible. No dog and I don’t think that I have the energy needed to care for one. Fortunately my spirits are high.

      • I was hoping you had a lot more energy. I certainly understand how you feel about getting another dog. Three a.m. is so early and dark, but I also understand that getting up is better than laying in bed, when sleep will not come. Hopefully you go to bed by ten. Your spirits always seem to be high. It’s probably because of the wonderful connection you have to nature and your time in the woods. It shows so clearly in your work…all the love you have with the animals…all the connections. It’s a wonderful thing. As for the sharpie, I was just playing with it and seeing how little I could do to make a black and white picture with a line and blob of hair. 🙂 I love that kind of thing. This virus has us prisoners, of a sort. Like everyone else, I long for the time when we can be released into the wild again. LOL

      • I am mostly able to not suffer over the physical body situation. I do what I can to care for my body ailments without disappearing into ‘I wish it were different’ which is a sure path to mental suffering. There is joy every moment that I allow. That’s why my spirits are high. Takes the hardship out of the picture. I thank you for your caring. Much love g

      • I care so very much. And I truly believe that attitude is reality. No doubt about it. Many hugs to you.

      • Many thanks Gigi for your support.

  3. You don’t live a boring life.

    • Well, that’s true, I guess. I have a million books to read, and a million things to do and sometimes, I just don’t know what to do at all. LOLOLOL

      • I have quite a few books that are waiting to be read. Also manage to get a couple or more walks in a day.

      • That’s great. Books and walks, can’t ask for more than that. 🙂 I went out today only to find a skating rink. Everything is frozen solid. The street looked okay, but it wasn’t. I have a treadmill but I like being outside. Can’t afford to fall and break anything, that’s for sure. I’m happy you can go out and the weather is okay.

  4. I’m tired just reading your post!

    • Hahahahahahahaha I was determined to go for a walk, after getting 7-8 inches of snow today, but too much black ice under the slush on the street. I started sliding immediately. I hate to miss a day, but I would have had to walk in the middle of the street and the visibility wasn’t that good either, so I came back home. That’s how I start everyday, walking at 7:30 a.m. I call my friend and we talk while I walk. It gets me going and I love it. So I was slug woman today and I hate that. Argggg.

      • I go for walks early in the morning during the summer before it gets too hot. This time of year, I go in the late afternoon. I hate the days when it’s raining too hard to go and know what you mean about “slug woman!”

      • I go early in the summer too. Beat the heat. But I go early in the winter as well, to beat the wind. It was 7 degrees the other morning and it felt wonderful. There was no wind at all. But the afternoon it was 14 mph and that would have felt cold. Yes…slug woman…that was me today.

    OMG! I know the feeling!
    Drawing, blogging, cooking, sewing and loving my cats.
    So many things to do. Not enough time. So whatever I choose, I just enjoy that for the moment.

  6. I think it’s pretty common. A lot of people don’t really have anything they like to do.
