I wasn't very productive this week. We went to Disneyland on Saturday and my kids had a karate testing on Sun. We also had lunch with the family on Sun. to celebrate my son's birthday. Then on Sunday night, the salad I ate had gluten in it so I had a stomach ache on Monday morning. It made me uncomfortable, bloated and fatigued for a couple of days. Since we were busy all weekend, I had to catch up with the laundry and household chores during the week. That cut into the time I needed to spend working on my books. On top of that, our water heater's pilot light went out again, so I had to relight it and call the water heater company. Plus, the engine light on my car went on, so I had to go to the auto shop. Sometimes I feel like the "forces that be" prevent me from working on my books. Right now I have 15 minutes to post this and get some sort of work done before I have to pick up my kids from school because they have a minimum day today. Next week is spring break and they will be home all week which gives me very little time if any to work on my books. I wanted to finish my picture book and enter the SCBWI picture book contest, but that deadline has come and gone. :o( *sigh*
However...I will celebrate filling a sketchbook that I started in 2007. I made the sketchbook myself and ended up putting too many pages in it. I'm not likely to make another one like it again since I don't like the binding. It's ugly anyway. This is what it looks like:
This is one of my favorite drawings from the sketchbook:
What are you celebrating?
