sometimes the best thing- the most important thing ,
is showing up. So today, well the day is almost over but with the last few minutes before I retire for the night I am going to show up and share some of my goals for the year
1. Blog 5 x week. Period . A little this, a little that – but show up and share the day and colors and insights and my life and my art with you!
2. And Along that same line I plan to streamline this blog. Make the archives easier to access. Break it into sections: colors, tutorials, makeovers etc etc
3. Build a kick ass site for my ART. Like the real deal. I am so excited about this I could pop. More to come on that!!!
4. Read 4 books a month. Any topic. Fact or fiction. Audible is fine but along with my watching Netflix while I paint – read . Oh do I have a list!!!
And 5. (I think 5 goals are plenty) absolutely positively if I don’t do it until the last week of the year – I WILL GO someplace that requires a passport in 2017!!!!
thats a good start I think.
So a bit of random side note/news, the week before Christmas I slipped on the ice going down our front porch steps. Wacked my back in the middle cement step but after a few days of ice and heat and rest and pain meds I was back to the business of the holidays and did not miss a step.
Then last week I had a thing happen where I bent over to pick something up – something gave way and I was brought to my knees in pain. My dr ordered a X-ray and ironically what caused the pain is NOT what they saw on the X-ray, probably just muscles that were strained but what they saw was that I fractured 2 vertebrae when I fell!!! The fractures are not spinal injuries but on the little pointy bones that stick out / but gee – kind of makes me feel incredibly grateful that I am in one piece …I am just going about my business as usual. Getting a CT scan later this week. Is this what they mean by over sharing! Hope not , just figure this year you will get All of me!!!
so on that note – off to bed!!! Back to school tomorrow and real-life. I will cherish this holiday – having all the kids home was at times a tad awkward but after a few days we fell back into our rhythm and I have l lived waking up in the morning and having all of us under one roof!!!
