Plant watering and inking  
I watered as many nepenthes as I could today and put some outside. I realize I need to make a video update for youtube. I haven't really gone to check my messages or subscriptions there in weeks. I'm afraid to because I'll never catch up. Just haven't felt like logging into that email. So I got a lot done, as much as I could stand. I hope I can finish the rest tomorrow. I'm thinking of inventing some kind of hose system to make this easier on me and for when I go on vacation for the plant sitters. I put some of the hanging baskets outside.

Oh, gosh I was reminded yesterday that Easter is coming soon. I hate it when Easter is in March. Too many holidays too close together when that happens. Plus because I was sick for the first half of the month I never got around to decorating. It seems too late now and I'm disappointed because I feel I missed out. I'm having a hard time getting into the Easter spirit. I'm not down, I just don't feel anything. And usually I love that excitement and anticipation. It's my favorite holiday after all. I want things to look nice.

Been listening to a lot of Savatage, because it reminds me of Quetz so much. I got a lot of inking done today but nothing finished. I hate that feeling that nothing's getting done. I worked on a little bit of everything and even scanned in some of my newer sketches and started to ink them. Of course I want to work on the newer stuff more. It's more exciting. But I need to finish the old ones first and some of my art has an order so I need to try to get it out in order. Like Ophidius getting grabbed then getting thrown. And I only have three expressions left to go for inking! Then I can concentrate on just coloring them. I really can't wait to get that up already. Stuff is slowly getting accomplished but it doesn't feel like it. And this is the stage where nothing new is being produced. No final products and no new pencil drawings either. I think I've drawn almost everything that I wanted to as far as scenes with Ophidius. The scene of him fallen after trying to lift Malidicus is funny but doesn't feel like a priority. I want to draw Quetz vs Sorath and Quetz vs. Thagirion, but I'm not getting clear visions of that for poses and action scenes. So yeah, I guess for now I'm done with pencil work.

Forgot to mention I got a silver coin on Wednesday. It's a 2013 Year of the Snake. It's got really cute art and I think it's so appropriate this year is the year of the snake and I have been channeling them so much.

I have decided that from now on I will put in my moods manually regardless of what LJ does. Even if LJ improves it somehow I like that my mood for that day won't change if I decide to change themes in the future. For example if I'm using ravens and later were to switch to phoenixes on LJ all my old posts would turn into phoenixes. And this way I can mix and match them AND write in moods that aren't part of the 137.

It's weird having Easter so early this year. I had an easter egg today. I didn't mean to eat all of it but I like food too much lol!

Good luck with the art. I meant to finish a digital pic I'm working on today but I spent all day on YouTube watching TV shows from my childhood.

Yeah, it is. Now there's nothing to do in April. Hehe, I haven't bought any Easter candy yet. Well one set of birthday peeps but they were gross so I didn't finish them. But they were pretty.

Thanks. I have so much to do. Hehe, that sounds about right. That happens to me way too much. In fact I may unplug my internet to try to get stuff done because every few minutes I go online and waste time.

Mom put up our Easter decorations before she and dad left for New Zealand. I helped, and we really didn't put up very many. The Easter tree and our Peep decorations were it. I need to get some Easter candy so I can have baskets for mom and dad when they get back. I want to get a little something for myself too.

I have my egg wreath on the front door and a chick snow globe, but that's about it really.
