Every Day Month and Sunset WIP

I have joined Leah and the November Every Day Month. For my first sketch, I used what I had to hand - my coffee cup on my desktop.

I've also been working on my Leelanau Sunset painting.

This is the second time I've written this post today. The first time it acted like it was adding photos, but when I published it, there was just a broken link indicator. I hate it when things don't work.

I ran into town today and took my "Reflections" painting to the Potter Center. The other paintings that were there looked WAY better than mine, but I stuck by my decision and turned my in. I am going to take Miss P to look at the display some time later this month. She said she'd love to go take a look.

On my way home, I stopped at the office supply store and bought 100 CD-Rs that were on sale and bought some large binder clips. I then went next door to Michael's and bought 4 bulldog clips along with 2 frames that were "BOGO". After that I stopped at my daughter's and hooked up her printer to her computer.

This afternoon I made some "monkey" muffins (banana oatmeal) and the hubster and I enjoyed a couple warm out of the oven with some flavored coffee. Yummy!!

I hope you are having a good day and that you are enjoying this beautiful weather. My thoughts and positive energy I am sending to those of you who are on the east coast in the dark. I hope you get your power back on real soon and that you are keeping warm and safe.

As a workaround to my uploading photos in blogger, I copied the location and chose from a URL instead of loading directly from my computer. I think this works.



  1. The sketch is a fun one,and the start on the painting is wonderful! It's going to be beautiful. I tried to leave a comment there, but there was no "enter" to click on. Oh well .... hugs, nancy

  2. oo, beautiful work, best of luck! Those muffins warm from the oven sound yummy! Thanks for sharing your day,

  3. Wow, what a busy day! Next to what you've done, I feel lazy. :-) Love the sunset picture, and will look forward to your EDiN sketches.

  4. sounds like you managed to pack a huge amount into one day!!! Hope blogger decides to be a bit less temperamental for you soon xx

  5. I always have trouble uploading pix in blogger too (many a curse has been uttered by me over this and I wish they would fix it), but now I use the html editor (just for the pix)and that works like a charm. In case you haven't already, maybe you could try that? You can switch back and forth between the two editors, so you don't have to do everything in html.

  6. Coffee is always good =) My wife cannot deny that ever, and the sunset picture is looking fantastic

  7. I hadn't heard of the November every day group. I'll have to google that and check it out! The banana oatmeal muffins sound delicious! And I love your sunset painting so far! Very eye-catching!
