August Blog-a-Long 2/31

So here we are with Day 2 of Effy's August Blog-a-Long!  I didn't get anything done that I had intended to do yesterday, so I get to work on those things today.  I spent most of my day cleaning my house, because it was trashed from us coming back from our week long visit to Southwest Missouri.  Then I spent the evening helping my mom unpack her things at her new apartment.  I was able to get all of her kitchen items unpacked, so that's good.  Her apartment is really starting to look nice and she stayed the night there last night, her first night in her new place!

I pulled out this pile of books yesterday and I'm hoping to spend some quality time in all of them this month.  I have a serious book addiction.  And I'm especially addicted to art books and cookbooks. lol  Oh well, it could be worse, right?  Inner Excavation by Liz Lamoreux is the book that we're working through with Effy Wild.  I think they are on Chapter 5 or 6 and I haven't even started.  Ugh, July just was not a good time for me to try to start anything extra!  But, I'm going to try to start working on the chapters bit by bit this month.  Draw Inspire Create is just a doodle book.  Pages and pages of easy prompts like, "fill this page with zig zags" and things like that.  I'm planning on keeping that and some colored pens on my coffee table, so I can play around it in whenever I'm sitting there....which usually isn't until about 9 pm. lol  The New Diary by Tristine Rainer was recommended by Rhomany from Rhomany's Realm (she actually shared it on her Instgram) and since I'm really wanting to work on my personal journaling, I had to pick up a copy for myself.   The last book is The Declaration of You by Michelle Ward and I'm really happy that I picked that one up.  I'm not sure if I should wait to delve into that one though until I'm finished with Inner Excavation, but we'll see.  I always have big dreams and goals and not enough time to do half of what I want to. ;-)


I've been meaning to start the 10-day cleanse in this book for months, but always had an excuse to not do it.  My last excuse was that we were going to be gone at the end of July so why spend that time getting all healthy when I was going to spend a week eating terribly while in Missouri.  We always have to go to our favorite restaurants when we go to our hometown and low-cal/healthy don't describe them at all! lol  

ICAD's that I worked on while on our trip to Missouri.....they need to be numbered and put in my basket of cards.  I still have decided if I'm going to finish up those remaining few cards so that I can have 61 cards for ICAD 2013.

My planner is waiting for me to be opened up and used for real now....no more messing around!  It's going to start getting really busy around here really fast.....that's number on on my To-Do list for today. It has to be done! 

Well that's it for today.  It's almost 10:30 am and I need to get busy.  So much to do and I'm hoping to reward my hard work today with some art time this afternoon.  It's been way too long.....

Take care and thanks for stopping by....
