My Day Ahead – Nov 07, 2019

Good Morning Bird Poster -


Listening to the breeze wake into a wind outside, with rain gliding in with it soon. The music of โ€œwake up & get going!โ€ ๐Ÿ˜Š Sheila needs to leave early for her PT appt and I need to do something, oh yeah, make a second pot of coffee and then breakfast, lol!

Weather station I like online (though I use their app mostly) says air quality here in Austin is moderate, but has a frown face on it, then a warning for seniors – hmmm, moderate? Goodness, lol!

Well, meanwhile, Iโ€™ve two other immediate challenges for today, one finding enough open time to get my walking in. Temps are mild this morning & we have plenty of umbrellas ๐Ÿ˜Š but we leave at 2:30 to get the 6 year old, then take him to ninja, then go for a rare supper via Wheatsvilleโ€™s $5 special, then try to make it home before dark. Usually after this routine weโ€™re all three pretty knonked out, though happily so ๐Ÿ’•

My other challenge will be finding time for either painting or a blog post. Who knows whatโ€™ll happen there! My new article series, My Yesterday in Pictures may come in more handy than I first thought, lol! Wish us luck guys ๐Ÿ˜Š


Yesterday, round 8pm, it was like I hit a wall, or a lack of an energy wall to support me, lol! Either way, I had to stop & rest. No more walking, painting, blogging, tweeting, uh well, maybe a small snack ๐Ÿ˜Š But I was done for the evening โ€”

10,000+ steps courtesy of walks, going to Hobby Lobby (new mop brush), + working a bit at the Old Bakery Emporium to restock prints.

That alone, lol ๐Ÿ˜‚

But I over-ate, over walked, over just plain had a good time today โค๏ธ

I pushed more than I normally would because today (Thursday) the weather is changing for the wetter and colder, much colder for round here, for quite a few days! Then, โ€˜bout Monday, itโ€™s gonna really get cold! Brrrrrr!

I even created a new image-orientated post series I can upload โ€œfairlyโ€ easily. It can supplement the My Day Ahead posts with the images of things mentioned there. Iโ€™m calling the new posts, My Yesterday in Pictures ๐Ÿ˜Š

Plus tomorrow we pick up Mr Max after school, take him to ninja, go to Wheatsville for their famous Thursday $5 suppers. This time around itโ€™s Pasta Bolognese, one of Sheilaโ€™s favs! Then home before dark so he can do his homework, then maybe (ok, for sure) a little TV and fun ๐Ÿ’•

I do like to point out I pick my selections to showcase from my Amazon searches. May not always be the case, or wholly always the case, but for now, I prefer picking titles and book covers and gift items that just really appeal to me. Thereโ€™s lots more to choose from, but only have so much room, lol! I hope you enjoy โ€”

    As one can tell by my photo below, I took a few liberties, but to some extent, that happens whether I plan it or not, lol ๐Ÿ˜‚ But I like the result too much to alter anything on it. Another version, another time, will elicit a different response, and I do think this is one motif Iโ€™ll want to do more of, vs variations for just practice ๐Ÿ˜Š

    A superb article, mostly for two reasons. One, it covers a huge range of our everyday activities. Two, it differentiates into most the activities, delineating what makes it risky or less so, in general.

    The current work, for now titled Dancing Free, below the Paris painting, shows how the transparent ground โ€œclouds upโ€, creating the soft streaking across the black gesso.

Thanks so much everyone! ๐Ÿ˜Š
