My sister-in-law, Kristen, is doing this cool project where she does a painting every single day for 100 days. I think maybe I should try to do the same with my blog to help me get better about writing and posting… a post every day for 100 days… which would be from today until November 4th… I wonder if I could do it? I’m not as disciplined, but I guess that’s the point. Some days, I forget to even answer my text messages (I answer them in my head, but then it never quite gets alllll the way back to the person…)!
Today was “Ema” day (my mom came over) and A LOT got done! Not in order:
2 loads of laundry (1 of which is folded but maybe not yet put away), 1 kid to eye doc, pilates class, 3 blackberry cobblers made (one for us and 2 to take to a family gathering), library books read, garden picking (eggplant, tomatoes, cucumbers, okra and cherry tomatoes), all kids toenails and fingernails clipped, I showered!, kids bathed and fed dinner, cleaned out fridge, set up hummingbird feeder, learned how hummingbirds build a nest, and drew and colored pictures of hummingbirds, picked up some things we needed from the store…
I also was able to get a little work done for Beautycounter and for Jessie Mackay, a local artist and friend who I help with marketing and sales. We decided to try something fun and are setting up a daily auction instagram account! You can follow it here. Each day, we’ll post a new painting for sale and first person to reply in the comments with their email address we’ll send the invoice to. Most all of the paintings will be under $200 and are unframed oil on board paintings. A few that are odd sized will come custom framed. The first one will post on Friday, July 29th – so go follow @jessiemackayart now!
My little cutie at the eye doc.
One of the blackberry cobblers. Recipe is here but it doesn’t need as much sugar as it calls for. You can do less than a cup and also we just sprinkled a teaspoon or two on top instead of 1/4 cup!
1/100 done! 99 more posts to go…
