Well, I got some really cute pictures of CC in his costume from his dad, Ben (our son), and because I'm a bit squeemish about posting CC's picture on the internet, I'm posting one where you can see part, but not all of him. Even though you can't see his face in this picture, I think he looks just like a Gnome happened upon by a giant (the giant being Ben in his "early 1900s" costume). So, without further adieu, here they are!
You can see a bit of his beard in this one, his furry boots, hat and belt, but not the little pouch on the front for holding his gold pieces .... or whatever it is that
Gnomes carry in their pouches!
Today is November 1, and I'm going to try really hard to get back to my habit of completing a piece every day. I did well for a very long time, then just fell off the wagon. I find myself falling off wagons with some regularity. Let's see, I've fallen off the meditation wagon, the exercise wagon, the clean-one-room-a-day wagon, and the complete-a- piece-of-work-a-day wagon, just to name a few. I find that if I put a teensy sticker on the wall calendar in my studio each time I do the thing I'm trying to accomplish, for some weird reason, it helps keep me motivated to keep going. May calendar is singularly devoid of stickers, and has been that way for far too long. So, back to stickers and art. For today I did a modest page in my journal. I was pretty pooped after having mowed the lawn (about 2 acres), discovered that our spare refrigerator died so I had to save what food I could, toss the rest, clean it out, and cook dinner. My sweetie was working hard too, so we're both a tad washed out. Since I couldn't very well punk out the very first day of my new resolution, I allowed myself to keep it simple. See you soon!
