I'm in a getting things done sort of mood today. I feel at loose ends but in a way that makes me want to connect those ends rather and lay on my floor and do nothing. For instance, this morning I submitted a script to a writing contest just because I felt like it. I'm hoping I can get a lot done while this feeling lasts because that would be great. I also bought a new plant today which always makes me feel good.

 How is it that I tested out of nine skills in Spanish which I took for five years in elementary school but I couldn't test out of a single skill in French which I took for four years with straight As in high school?

Cake!

 Today I have lots of cake recipes. I'm also working on pysanky for Christmas (and Hanukkah) gifts. Hopefully I'll add some picture later this week. Tonight I'm going to see the traditional nativity play at my old school. There's a potluck after so that's where all the cake comes in.

 So I have my period and I'm in a super weird mood and I can't really do handstand push ups like I want to right now so instead I'm making pie and thumb-nailing my children's book idea.

 There is not enough caffeine in the world to get me through this conversation (I think I'm gonna throw up).

 And I lied, I can't breathe again. Ah well, it was nice while it lasted.

I have so many ornaments to finish and yet ... I finally feel like I can breath.

 I've been experimenting with digital art lately ... so here's a sketch of a goat. Don't get too excited.

In other news, I'm planning on coloring my Marvel Bang illustration tomorrow and that'll be uploaded next week to my Livejournal Also, eating jelly beans and reading comics (Black Widow and Ms Marvel in this case) on the subway are my new favorite things and I've discovered that eating protein is the easiest way to feel like a superhero (in this case also known as a semi-functional adult).

 I'm nearly finished with second holiday card design but I'm taking a break this for the next couple of days to work on two other art projects (Christmas ornaments and my piece of Marvel Bang which I still need to color) and prepare for NaNoWriMo. I'm more determined than ever to finish this year but I don't want it to be at the expense of everything else. 

Links I'm Reading include:

Pacemaker which is a customizable target word count generator. I'm really excite because it allows me to schedule for writing more at the start of the month and less on the weekends. Plus it even lets me include a two day grace period. 

This Shel Silverstein poem because I'm trying to show my little brother that poetry can be fun

This blog post about electrolytic etching because I'm planning on trying it once the holiday rush blows over
 
A list of 15 "kid-requested" meals from Pillsbury because while I'm not usually much of a Pillsbury girl, it's my night to cook again and clueless vegetarian me whose favorite pre-vegetarian meal was calamari has a hard time pleasing the elementary schoolers of the home unless I'm making fried rice or desert.

 I just want to eat the chocolate cake before it cools.

 I've been out of sorts lately but I'm feeling super good about myself tonight because I was able to get my card template to work the first time! I'll try to post some more WIP pictures for real this time. Tonight's plan is to finish some character work and then do some comments on a friend's WIP novel first draft.

 I don't know why I've been in such a bad mood today but I undeniably have been, for no good reason at all. I got a donut this morning and went on a walk and everything. I made dinner and cake (for an anniversary). I finished my book and I actually get to sleep in a real bed tonight.  I just feel like screaming for some reason that is apparently beyond me. I think that "pissed off' describes my mood at the moment quite well. Ahh ... sigh.

 Seriously though, what was I thinking with this frost pattern?!? 

Maybe there'll be pictures tonight or tomorrow if everything works out. *crosses fingers*

What a Week

 ('cause theres's gonna be hell to pay, at the end of the day)

I couldn't resist the "Les Mis" reference as much as it doesn't fit. I don't have hell to pay at the end of this day. I finished everything that I was supposed to and I have a beautiful tart chilling in my refrigerator as I write this. Take that depression!

 Today was one of those days where I couldn't come up with a single good reason not to stay in bed where it was warm. It's been a bit of a long week and I have to say, I'm looking forward to it being over. 
In other news, I've entered a tart in the county fair and as tomorrow is judging day, I'm baking it today. I have to wait until after judging to find out if I can post the recipe (if I win, I have to wait a year before sharing it).

 I feel good about today. I've pretty much managed to stay positive and focus on doing things rather than just getting mad like yesterday. Probable reason for my bad mood yesterday )I feel like I got a lot done today. I sent in a volunteer application, wrote two cover letters, picked up my sister, got a form from the DMV, went to the library, made a therapy appointment and a couple other random productive things.
