Already Off Schedule

“The best laid schemes o' mice and men Gang aft a-gley; And leave us naught but grief and pain For promised joy”
~ Robert Burns(Scottish national Poet of Scotland, who wrote lyrics and songs in the Scottish dialect of English. 1759-1796)

Here I go again, but it's not my doing, sort of. I need to confess I never got to paint and not going to get to it until I have a free moment. Painting will have to wait. Family obligations come first.

The funny part is that poor apple is starting to get old! I keep it out with the shell bits so if I have time I can just paint. If I put the apple in the refrigerator, I have to fish it out to work which might hamper the motivation. It's a whole thing.

On the bright side, the weekend is coming up. Will I or won't I paint? That is the question.


  1. Don't sweat it, Dora- I hardly ever paint on the weekend, too much to do!
    Today I am shoveling mulch again even though painting sounds way more fun!

  2. I've been meaning to tell you how much I love your contribution to the "artist babe" page. You have helped breathe new life to it and I've so enjoyed your posts. I may have some new women who want to join and will work to revamp the site a little bit. Happy day to you!

  3. Sheryl, I have high hopes! I'll be alone today as the husband and son are going out together, but who knows? I could easily get sidetracked!

  4. Shannon I'm so happy I could help out! I had been trying to plan something to post and the idea popped into my head that day. Planning another one soon, a follow up perhaps. Please let me know if there's anything else I can do. Enjoy your day!
