How can it possibly be the last week of October. Wasn't it just July day before yesterday? :vs_worry:I really think time is speeding up -- at least for me. I wake up thinking I have a nice long day ahead of me to all the things I want to do and I blink and it's 10:00 pm -- I feel like I'm in the twilight zone or something.

No matter how much I try to make it not so, I always find this time of year stressful. Always the same problem, I want to spend lots of money on the kids and hubby takes a fit.

Oh Well, day after tomorrow it will be New Years and we will be looking forward to spring. :biggrin:

Have a good day and lets talk a bunch today.

Time really does seem to speed up. One day my kids were babies and the next they had babies of their own.

We're starting to see cooler mornings here.

I have a favor to ask you artist friends. I put in a poll of which one is better on my Big Lilly post. I'm about to start the third copy of this painting and I'm not sure if the changes I made between the first and second are better or worse. On the second one I made more leaves in the background and made the flower a bit darker and changed one of the peddles. So far only Dickhutchings has voted. Thank you I appreciate it.

Hi all - struggling but getting better -

Terry, the reason I didn't vote is that I feel both are so close that it is hard to make a decision. I prefer the leaves and the background on the newer version but I prefer the actual flower itself on the first one. If you could somehow combine the two I think it would be about as close to perfect as you can get.

Today I am in a fog. Meds have me "just here". I desperately want to draw but I can't focus worth a hoot. I AM getting better. Cough is going away but this morning I woke up with a stuffy head..I am sure it is due to stuff breaking up and moving around. By mid-day I hope I will be more alert.

Kid has a birthday on Friday. He turns 9. Time really flies.

Have a great day all.

Thanks Chanda I'll try my hardest to do my best.

Are you having a party for Chris? My two oldest granddaughters turn 9 the last week in January. They were born 6 days apart and you know the older one reminds her cousin every chance she gets that she is the oldest of the grandchildren so she is special.:vs_blush:

Well sort of. Right now he isn't in the best of moods. I told him his saddle was being repaired (when I really just bought him a brand new one) so he has no saddle and is upset about that. Then he wanted me to take the day off on his birthday and we could go to the mining museum and open presents..lol..but the women who watch him wanted to throw him a little party since he does so much to help them. The party will be in the afternoon so I am taking him that day and am blaming work. He has no clue about the party at all. He is very cranky that I am working that day. Once the day comes and he realizes all that is going on I think his mood will quickly change!

That's really neat that your granddaughters are so close in age. It gives them family their age to bond with and that's pretty special. He is the last and the youngest of the grandchildren. His cousins are already in their 20s.

Aaaand the year has almost gone .-.

There is not happening so much here, still not working in my new drawing. I changed the main idea again xD
This one looks hard to acomplish, it should be like a man running away from a mirror, while the mirror shows him-self staring at him (maybe I'll choose some other action later :P )
Hope I'm able to do it .-.


Chanda, I'm sure your son will have such a great time ^^ No doubt you are a great mom :)

OH WOW a real twilight zone drawing, what fun!

Yeah the forum has gotten dull we need to start a conversation about something interesting that will get everyone involved.

Now last time I checked in, there were new people everywhere! Is everyone out playing in all the leaves? Lol

I'm having a horrid time with my headache again. I just can't win, with this silly thing. I'm sure this home buying business has contributed, even though it's going pretty smooth in my book. I've heard some horror stories. :surprise:

I have commissions from friends I need to draw, and even though they aren't paid commissions, I still don't want to take forever to get them done.

That's all for me...great to hear little updates from all of you :biggrin:
