In the past I was really bad at this and had to try hard to kick the "creature of habit" thang!!! I always went food shopping on the same day of the week - did the laundry on the same day of the week and cleaned the house on the same day of the week - HOLY CRAP - BORING-BORING-BORING!!!
I've finally gotten myself to the point that food shopping gets done only when needed - laundry also only gets done when needed. Cleaning the house is every Friday night only because my wife teaches a yoga class from 5 - 7 so I can get the cleaning done with minimum disruptions to our daily life.
Travelling/living in our RV full time for close to a year got me to the point that I was able to kick these anal habits as the RV of course had a small refrigerator so food shopping got done when there was room in the frig for more food and the laundry had to be done at a laundry-mat and that we put off until really - really necessary as those places are a PITA!!
Sooooo I of course did some more paintings over the past week and enough of my jibber - jabber it's time to present those paintings that I best like for my efforts. As you know - perhaps - I've been into what my DW calls "SOFT LANDSCAPES" and I call "LAND ESCAPES" - I've seemed to be fixated on prairies and plains and marsh like land - I'm sure its most likely a "passing thang" but if not hang in there - I'll move onto something else sooner of later. :>)

Well my friends that's it for this week. Blogs are a funny thing - I've play around with my blog for several years, changing the format from a viewer comment format to and non-comment format. The reason being viewers just don't seem to comment on blogs - they just like to look. I always wrote a lot of jibber-jabber and thought perhaps viewers became bored with my ramblings - I went from posting daily to posting weekly - I went from posting many paintings to just posting one painting. I got a complaint ( woo-hoo a comment ) that folks wanted to see more paintings - so now I post weekly - several paintings and not so much jibber-jabber. Although this whole paragraph is clearly jibber-jabber.
The only advice I can give is ---- if you think I post too many paintings then
Don't look at all of them :>)
Have a great weekend and up coming week and as you go through this period of time try to say hello to a passing stranger on the sidewalk or in the supermarket - also throw a smile at people you pass by - your day will improve as will theirs.
Back again about the same time next week - unless I hit the lottery or find a better way to spend my time.
