Playing Catch Up - Days 4 thru 9 of AEDM

Alrighty then! Seems I dropped off the, let's see. That leaves me off at last Friday. The day before my show at the Irvine Fine Arts Center was full of prep work. My lovely second in command, Jeanne, was called off to Chicago for a family emergency and I was left to figure out how to do all these things alone! 
Worked on new images for cards and display. Yes, this is me
about age 2, but I added the hat digitally.
I loaded the car which is always a puzzle and work.
The beginning...
...the middle...
...the end! (literally)
Then when my alarm went off at 4:05 am Saturday morning I was ready to go! In the dark!
The show was good. Lots of shoppers and about 150 booths. I only really took a couple pictures.
Some ladies fondling their way thru my booth.
The view from the side of my booth to the others on the patio area. 
Home again Saturday night and I think I passed out once I got comfortable.
Sunday we gathered some friends and headed out for brunch and to check out another show  but here locally. Sorry, no pictures, I completely forgot!
Day 7 would have been Monday and I hate to say that I'm not sure what I did during the day. It must have been somewhat creative but I haven't a clue. (the first thing to go...memory)
Monday night we got creative about dinner and went out! No cooking, too tired!

A little Yardhouse goofy son + one husband partially
catatonic + one quizzical Grandpa =
general gender confusion!
Tuesday was my trip out to Orange County to see about selling some jewelry at the Owl's Lantern.
Box #1
Box #2
Then it was home to take my son to his Judo class.
The dojo.
Today I was off again to San Diego this time.
Art N Soul in Encinitas, California
Great stuff all the way around.
My Mother chatting up the owner, Cindy.
Then there is my spot.
Looks better on camera but not sure if I like it.
Feel free to suggest some options here. I'm going in again next week to re-do this.
I need to change this up and make it look different. Hmmm...ideas!?

My last effort of creativity today was to sequester myself in the kitchen and cook!

All alone with my organic garlic and a knife.

Add olive oil. (and several Jamie Oliver cookbooks)

My cooking corner.
I whipped up pork loin chops with a soy, garlic, apple glaze, baked Butternut Squash, salad with all kinds of raw goodies and fresh arugula, some crusty French bread with roasted garlic hot from the oven....yum, yum!

Now I'm full and ready to sleep!

Not sure any of this fits the art every day bill but tomorrow I promise to create something out of nothing and blog about it!

Until then, Susan

Just looking at that loaded vehicle makes me tired. You have been a busy, busy woman! And I would say that it all counts as creative.

Dear me!!! Just the miles alone you have put in would have me passed out cold on the couch!!!!!
Glad you are doing AEDM, though!!

Janet said...

I definitely agree it all counts! Besides, I think the whole point is to be thinking creatively as much as is possible. You've certainly been doing that!

I would need a week in bed and a box of chocolates to recover from all that... I am so exhausted after reading your post I am going to go and put the kettle on... send some of that energy my way please xx

Shells said...

Ann Marie said...
