Marching It Is
It's March and winter is melting by the moment. Western PEI had storm conditions this morning but here in the East we had a bit of rain. The sun broke through this afternoon. The West's bad weather was fortunate for me as it turned out. Yesterday I broke a filling off my tooth and this morning found my dentist completely booked. Within a few moments of calling, the front desk staff called back with a solution. Someone from the West had an eleven o'clock appointment and was very happy not to have to make the long trip into Charlottetown over this morning's slushy highways.
After the unscheduled dentist appointment I shopped for groceries and ran a few errands so did not do what I had planned for today. I rarely get a whole day to paint but had managed to on Saturday. It was quite motivating and I had broken a few roadblocks. I planned to follow up today with many new cre8ive ideas. Instead I'm here. Isn't it funny that my whole day changed after a broken tooth. An unscheduled blog post came into being. I now have to work every day until next Tuesday. Perhaps I should jot down those cre8ive ideas as in eight days, I'm bound to forget them.
While I was painting this weekend I burned a double CD. I haven't named it or did the artwork yet but it will have an Olympic theme. At present it is entitled Feb 2010. I have playlists of many hours but don't often burn double CD's. It is really good! I have now started a new one which if burned will encompass many CDs. I am saving it under All About Art but that may change. Here are a couple from it: Straight Lines by Dawn Landes and Baby Blue by Rachel Pearl. Sunlight by The Youngbloods is so far the first cut. Sunlight was what inspired the playlist. The first song will change many times before the end. I'll add it as an old familiar for the old '60's music lovers. Ralph?
