A Bum's Mentality

token of growth

I feel like a complete and total bum. LOL. This February Funk is going to far. I did squat yesterday. NOTHING!! No wait, I did go to the post office, and bank, and had a wonderful momma/daughter lunch date with Lauren at Panera. Besides that I sat on my butt and knit while surfing the web and talking on the phone... for hours. No, seriously, hours. I talked to my sister, I talked to my best friend, and I talked to my hubby. Talk, talk, talk, talk, talk... I can be a motor mouth when I want. As if you didn't know that. HA!

I know I am being a bum. I have a lot of guilt about it. Especially since Ron is working so hard at his job right now. He has been made lead systems engineer on a project that has him stressed. Here I am, at home, sipping cocoa, and wearing pjs all day... totally unmotivated to change my situation. I feel bad about that, but at the same time I feel the need to embrace the bum mentality. I don't do it very often. If my creative spirit needs a break, it needs a break. And I think I will be all the better for it on the flip side. I'll be more energized, more excited to create, and I dunno... just in a better state of being me.

We started the week here with a Token mixed media piece and a hope that things we get back to normal around here. I figured we should end the week with another one. This is "Token Of Growth". It is a blend of acrylics, pen & ink, charcoal, sharpie paint pens, vintage papers, glitter, glass, wire working, and resin. I like it a lot. I like the colors, I like the movement in the wire, and I like the texture of the glass. The size again is 5x7 and it is on a stretched canvas rather than a flat board. I am hording these for now, and when I have several together, I will post them on my website for sale. If you want to claim this one or "Token of Chance", the cost will be $85. Just send me an email.

Time for me to curl back into my comfy chair, refill my coffee, and work on my red sweater some more. I hope you get to be a bum a little bit today too.

Hey, Kerr, I can do nothing like you can't believe. I call it "power lounging." I actually think it should be an Olympic sport.
