Crazy busy

A week or so ago, I began painting the
plain book with acrylic paint

Today among other things I worked on my datebook.
I teach a psychology course on school success
tomorrow and we start with the agenda. As
an artist I need to bump the standard issue
8 1/2 x 11 datebook up a notch, so I paint mine,
and put on the letters with gold sign painter's
plastic. I still have more to do, but I'm getting there.

Today I cut out and applied the
letters (I know they're a bit awkward)
and lined the inside covers.
I'm not quite finished that part,
but the book is operable and a
wonderful girl who works
for me entered all my
classes. Ready to roll.

I promise to be more interesting tomorrow. No deep
thoughts today, except -- goodbye George Bush.
That's plenty deep enough.

Have an enjoying-every-second day.

What a great idea! I love the way you're personalizing your datebook. Very clever.

Huge, loud guffaws coming from me after reading "goodbye George Bush."

Yes, let's all wave a hearty goodbye to the sociopath! The universe is going to let out an enormous sigh of relief in just a few more days! Wooo-hoo.

Hi Melinda,

Maybe I misunderestimated good old George. I heard on the news tonight, which despite the horrors in the current international scene, has gone inane over the inauguration, that presidents age two years for every year in office. The worst source of aging is the loss of their friends. Go figure. This implies that friendship matters. What a concept!

Love your terrific blog.

Take care

Hi Theresa,

Well anyway it's an excellent idea
to try and be more organized than last year. Maybe that's my resolution. But it's a toughie.

Yep. Goodbye to Georgie.
