Wandering Wednesday

I feel somehow as though I am wandering through the day with no definite purpose at all. The plumber came at 9 am to replace the kitchen faucet. Is there really a law that says all plumbers must expose their butt crack whenever they bend over???? I had to leave the room. I am not a big fan of butt cracks.

He left about 10 and I must say the kitchen faucet is pretty nice and he replaced the undersink plumbing as well. It is a great improvement.

I've done nothing except to eat breakfast and sweep the entrance and my work room. I am trying to get my book binding stuff organized so packing it up to take to Nancy's on Monday will be easier and so I will not forget some essential tool. I am so excited to have a book making date with my dear friend. I anticipate we will each learn something valuable from each other and their will be plenty of laughter and fun. I will tell you all about it on Tuesday.

For today I am hoping to try a couple of lessons in my Watercolour for the Absolute Beginner book and maybe make a hardcover two needle coptic book. I am tutoring in Stockbridge at 2:30 and the Australian open is on from 7 pm until about 1:30 in the morning. I am going to try to sketch a tennis player in action this evening. I've never tried drawing anything from the TV before and am hoping I can capture something of the action and posture.

For now I thought my screech owl in my SC journal was a little lonely so I drew a wren (one of my favorite birds - not for his personality, but for his song) to keep him company. It is a quick sketch in pen.

I suppose I should have put him on something, but I am feeling a little ill so just quit and took this time to do a quick post.

I think I am going to go lie down. I hope to see you tomorow.



  1. I like your wren. Hope you're feeling better soon!

  2. Your wren is a perky little guy! Take it easy and I hope you're back to your old self tomorrow.

  3. Maybe you can add something for your wren to balance on when you're feeling a little more balanced : )

  4. I'm so sorry you're feeling under the weather. I hope whatever it is passes quickly. Did it start when the plumbers got there? Your wren looks quite chipper! Can't wait for Monday! hugs, nancy

  5. Get well soon Vicki. That's a cute lil birdie
