I’m ready for a "don’t mess with me" day. You know - that is when you don’t have to do anything for anybody or have to be anywhere at a certain time. My life is pretty free since I do not work outside of the home, but there are still obligations that I have to meet for family and friends. I love my family and friends and love being with them. But every once in a while, I just want to be left alone to do what I want, when I want, without answering to anyone all day. I just have not had a DMWM day in a long time.
Art was good yesterday because I love my girls and they make me smile. After art, I had to gather my art supplies and go to another Art Guild meeting. The AG had a visiting watercolorist who did a demonstration, and we all painted along with him. Most of the AG members are not watercolorist nor do they have watercolor supplies. So I supplied the supplies. The AG does not do a lot of watercolor things. Oils are the preferred medium. I do like to support any watercolorists in hopes of having more in the future. Last night’s visiting artist was a very nice man, but I was not impressed with his abilities. Whimsical would be the best word to describe his style. He had us sketch this house and then he painted it with all sorts of odd colors. It was fun, but as one of the AG members said, "It looks like a clown lives there."
Blogger has been giving me lots of problems lately in uploading photos to my blog. Then at night my internet has been so slow that I might as well not bother trying to look at anything online. I'd tell you more details, but it makes me want to cuss and I am trying to cut back. I'm trying something new as I type - we'll see.
Jesse is off to spend the night with friends in Ada tonight. It makes me think she is going into the "if I keep really, really busy, and run as fast as I can, I won’t feel sad or lonely" mode. She is much like her father. Contentment is the key here, but it will come. Sometimes you just have to work through the pain.
