So we begin anew; a new slate; an untouched page; so much potential; so much to aspire to.
Have you made your resolutions? Hope this is the beginning of a wonderful, healthy new year for you!
We spent a lovely evening waiting for the dropping of the ball with my son and his daughter and my daughter and her two girls and the hubster and I. The girls played with the Wii that the son brought with him. They bowled, played tennis, and boxed. I couldn't believe the two 5 year olds stayed up until midnight and then we made a bed for them on the living room floor and they fell asleep watching a movie.
I tried one of the preset programs on the treadmill today and it almost did me in. But boy did I feel wonderful when it was over. It was a 30 minute program with alternating incline (between 7 and 8 degrees) and alternating speeds (between 3.0 and 3.5 miles per hour). There was a short warm up at no incline and 2.5 miles per hour and the same at the end. WOW!
I didn't get any time to work on my art journal today until tonight. I am not totally pleased with it, but I have broken the "how do I mark up this empty and pristine paper" block.
I started by sitting on my bed and drawing the treadmill using a fine permanent Sharpie pen - my perspective is all wrong, but I think you would know what it was. I then wrote out my resolutions using the same pen. After that I came back to my art room and played with blue, yellow and green watercolors. I then went through my stash of cuttings from magazines and attached appropriate pix and text. As a last step, I outlined the pasted pix with a red neocolor II pencil.
That's all for now, don't forget to live in the moment!
