Welcome to Day#26 of Art Every Day Month.
Yet another day has gone by with little to show for it. I knitted for a short while, but that’s about as close as I came to doing any art at all. Of course, the evening is young right now, so there’s always that possibility of doing SOMETHING, but I’m just not feelin’ it so far.
Something about the the first shopping weekend of the season that has left me exhausted. Not really. I actually boycotted the whole thing this year. Intentionally. No Black Thursday Night (or Friday, either.) No small business Saturday, or cyber Monday. None of it. I went to the grocery store, and that’s it. This year I’m just not going to be pressured by the media circus. I’m going to shop where I want to shop, when I want to shop, and not be a part of the nutso manufactured days. If it costs me a bit more, so be it. I’m not really as crotchety as I sound…I just HATE the commercialization so much.
I didn’t make a whole lot of progress on decorating, but I did SOME. It is going to be a slow process this year!
Gratitude Day #26 –
I am grateful today for all I have to do. For all the fun that is awaiting me as I go through my boxes and create a festive atmosphere for my family this Christmas season. Seriously. I love this stuff. And I feel a really productive day coming up tomorrow!
Don’t forget to comment for another chance to win Melody Ross’ book “A Little Bird Told Me.” Only 2 days left to enter! We will draw on the 29th! Good luck!
