Celebrate The Small Things - For 1.23.15

 http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-UmlBG_h0RKE/UpvxxjY9ooI/AAAAAAAABhI/_v5o6aOynxo/s1600/Celebrate%2Bblog%2Bhop.jpg

I wasn't able to post last Friday because I was out for the count from the flu. This one hit me pretty hard. Headaches, body aches, chills, coughing. My skin hurt. The one blessing is that I wasn't sneezing or stuffed up. My youngest son got it, then the next day it hit the rest of us. Luckily my husband bought $40 worth of Thai chicken coconut soup on the way home from work to last us a couple of days. Our household was filled with a cacophony of coughs all week. We used all the Kleenex boxes in the house. My youngest one reverted to primal survival instinct and swiped a Kleenex box from my work room and hid it in his bed. We didn't mind that much because his nose was the worst out of all of us.

So, I'm celebrating the fact that I survived the flu.

I was about to add something about Ebola, the flu, the pharmaceutical companies, and "the powers that be," but it was too un-PC, so I just deleted it. lol ;o)

Have a safe, healthy week.

Celebrate the Small Things - Jan. 16, 2015

This week I managed to sketch out around 20 drawings for my picture book. It was fun and it gave me a sense of accomplishment. I like the drawing style I settled with, so it was a pretty productive week.
I also got some good ideas for my teen novel and was able to work on that as well. Not bad for experiencing a dry spell of posting accomplishments for a month!

Actually, last month I did happen to finish up my year of face-a-day drawings for my art blog www.smallkeedtime.blogspot.com. It was very satisfying, but took up too much of my time last year. I’m still drawing, but I won’t be posting my artwork daily like I did last year.

I’m not one for resolutions, but I would like to finish my children’s book this year and find an agent. I also want to draw on postcards and send them to my friends and family this year as a little surprise in their mailbox. It has been on my mind for months and even years, but I’ve never done it. I should do it before we all grow old and die.
