I began my day by posting and then reading the blogs to which I subscribe in Reader. After a quick breakfast - one of my favorites - wheat toast with peanut butter - I took a shower and then headed out to the dealership to have my oil changed. From there, I stopped at a store to get some eye drops (my eyes have been itchy and dripping for about a week) and then grabbed a large black coffee for my daughter at the McDonald's drive thru. I spent several hours at her house visiting and helping pick up. When I got home I was starved so had a quick lunch and then picked up a bit in the art room. It still needs at least a couple of hours dedicated to it, but I've gotten started. I went to a Pilates class last evening - whew! I am a bit sore and tight in the shoulders this morning. By the time I got home from my class it was dark and the Tigers were on. I sat with a cold pack on the back of my neck and upper shoulders and then worked crossword puzzles while watching to the bitter end. They lost in the 9th inning.
Here is a quick sketch of a couple of Pilates poses.
And in answer to the queries I've received about Yo Gabba Gabba, it is a show on Nick Jr. featuring a funky looking DJ who brings out a boom box suitcase full of creatures that come to life. Here they are:
And here she is enjoying it again.
And here is her "What do you mean I can't watch this show all day long?" face
I just couldn't end the post with that face, so thought I'd share one that I'd like to use as a model to sketch a baby face.
I am planning to go to my conditioning class this morning, but will use either a red or yellow cord rather than the blue and purple. I don't so much want a hard workout as I want a good stretch and some movement. Miss Z is due to arrive this afternoon and I don't know yet whether she is staying for one overnight or two. I'd like to go to the life drawing class tomorrow, but won't be able to decide until I know how long I have Zoë.
I do hope to get some play time in my art room between the end of my workout and Miss Z's arrival. I will share with you tomorrow. Meanwhile, I gotta ask, What are you doing today? Does it include some kind of creativity? Are you painting, drawing, cooking, gardening? Do share...
