Tuesdaily with #artvsartist and a list of doom.

Today's list:

Stupid Red Tape (insurance verification)
Amazon fulfillment. That tower of boxes I sent a few months ago? Almost all gone! O.o
Painting with Guppy
Scan Dragon's Hoard
Layout Serenitrix
Take a walk
Stretch

Folks on Facebook (or elsewhere, I dunno!) are doing a meme called #artvsartist - the idea of which is to show that artists draw themselves. I could have skewed this the other way if I'd tried - I do make an effort to deliberately draw other face types sometimes. This one is almost cheating, because two of these are self-portraits.



In other news, it's COLD. It was in the high 70s last week and we got seriously spoiled. Last night was near freezing. My garden is weathering it, though, and I thrilled to report that my strawberries survived! My delphiniums are spreading, the violas reseeded, and a tarragon plant, of all things, came back from its roots. The violets are threatening to take over everything, and the chives have already given us a half-dozen omelets. My (not-wild) roses are covered in leafbuds, and my baby trees are putting out actual branches this year. A few of the lilacs are still alive - I need to go weed out some of the (wild) roses that want to take over the area.

I've taken up a bellydance not-class again, and it's very, very good for me - both to get out of the house sans child and see grown-ups, and to give these muscles some use. Bellydance uses different muscle groups than hugging and cleaning up messes and carrying Guppy-whose-legs-suddenly-won't-work.
