A good day, lots of planning  
Chris and I had the day off together yesterday. We got a lot accomplished. We went out to eat which is always nice. We got some stuff we needed at Walmart. I got some new colorful socks. I will post pics of them because they are so cute. He helped me with the nepenthes poll. All the white hooks are now on it. I just have to add two hanging hooks to the back and my invention will be complete. It holds 20 hanging baskets which really rocks! I want to build one more for the side window but it will be a mix of nepenthes and bird feeders. Unfortunately I haven't felt like doing the art for it. Sorath is unfinished and I just don't have the feel to be out there painting anymore. But it also bothers me he's not done and I'd like to get at least a budgie on there and Quetz.

I'm in one of those transitional stages for my art right now. Everything's in the inking or pencil stage. I started three new pics yesterday with pencil but didn't finish any. Felt frustrated with them and worried that I may not be able to pull them off. I always worry that I've temporarily run out of power especially when I've been cranking out so much. I hope that's not the case. I always struggle with my art when I start it. I hate that and don't think it should be the case. It should just flow out, but it's always fight for me which makes me wonder if I can do it. But that feeling is only in the initial stage.
I should write then. I came up with some great new ideas for Quetz yesterday when we were in the restaurant. I come up with some awesome stuff while there. I don't know why it's such an inspiring place.

Got off the meat and veggie diet for a few days and had some good stuff. I've noticed when I eat junk after eating healthy for a while I get better. Go figure but that's always how it is. So I'm back to it having started yesterday and will try to go for another two weeks. I'm doing great actually. I wonder if I can reach my goal? Looks very possible right now.

Speaking of goals, I am thrilled I have met my goal of 12 finished Thagirion Realm drawings. This year is a record for art for me. I have never drawn this much finished stuff EVER. Actually I have way more than 12 finished works thanks to all the facial expressions. I colored those up as big 900x900 images then shrunk them down to icon size.

I looked through all my seeds and picked out stuff I want to grow. I'm so busy with other stuff I really don't think I have time for a garden this year but I will try to at least squeeze in the cucurbits. I need to choose three types of pumpkins and may-be one gourd to try to grow inside. This won't be easy and I haven't quite figured out how yet either. I just know I want to set up lights on a shelf somehow. Also it's hard for me to choose just three. I know Connecticut fields at least because they are the traditional jack o lantern and Chris loves those. Would love for this to be the year I grow a full sized pumpkin. I'm glad I succeed last year but so much effort for so little pay off. And I can't find my turkey gourd seeds. That's really annoying.

Current Mood: Silly

Sounds like you're doing well with everything, I love the amount of art you've been doing!
I have two pictures in the process of being coloured. Its annoying cos I don't feel like finishing them.

Yes it's pretty much going quite well. I'm glad you've enjoyed it. I hope I can keep this pace up. It's highly unusual for me. I know what it's like to not feel like doing art.

I'm glad you had a nice day today. I look forward to seeing the socks!

That's funny that when you go off the junk food your illness gets better.

You really are having a creative time. At least you know not to force it and that this inspiration will come back later.

It will be interesting to see what, if any cucurbits you grow this year.

Yeah I need to get pics of them.
I meant my weight got better when I was eating junk hehe.
Yeah I think I've hit a stop for now, but wow that was something. I only wrote a little bit yesterday but that's what I need to concentrate on now.
I'm happy about the ones growing wild. I hope they will produce for me.

Oh, your weight! That's weird. But good.

It looks like you are in a musical cycle now. I hope you get good on your bass soon!

It doesn't make sense but I have noticed that I do better when I stop a diet. So taking breaks to go back to regular food or treat myself is a necessary step.

Yes, I hope so. Looks like my attention is now shifting to music and writing, though I hope to still get some art in.
