Daily Diary – October 1 2011

The plan for today was to do absolutely nothing. Only the exercise but none of the other regular tasks I do. And nothing else on my todo list either. Welll…. I started out well. I watched TV, read my books, and just did nothing. But then as the day wore on I got itchy. I saw a photo I loved and I had to sketch it. Then I wrote my weeklong journal while David played Wii. The little one woke up and they played together.

even though the light is terrible, I just love the photo.

I then decided to run to the art store and bought some paper and a tiny gouache set. And I started to do another sketch. As I sketched, Nathaniel sat and played with his legos.

David did the same, too, but up in his room.

Jake was at the doctor’s getting his eyes checked and Nathaniel kept waiting for him.

he gave me a quick smile.

and went back on his daddy-watch.

and there we go. I didn’t do an art journal page but I did make a tag for a project so I am not sure this counts as a full day off but I did watch a lot of TV (watching some now) and felt a lot less self-pressure. So I guess it counts!

Three Things I’m Grateful For:
1. I am grateful that Jake did so much pitching in today so I could rest and have time off.
2. I am grateful that I got some new art goodies. Love this new paper.
3. I am grateful that I did a 2-mile run today. My 365th consecutive day of exercise. I am amazed I did it. And now I just get to do more and more.

Three Things David’s Grateful For:
1. I am grateful that I played star wars on the Wii * {his pick for the journal}
2. I am grateful that I played with my legos.
3. I am grateful that I got my new school shirts.

    Hi Karenika,
    This has nothing to do with your art or exercise or family or any of the other things you write about that draws me to your blog day after day after day…and always inspires me! I love the window covering Nathan is behind; is it fabric? sort of a sun screen? It looks like something that would be perfect in our west facing windows to shade us from the hot Texas sun! Thanks!
