Do the easy thing, Christine

My daily to do list includes ‘draw something.’

Sometimes I make something elaborate, sometimes I do the easy thing and just draw a quick little thing on whatever paper is handy.

Guess what kind of day today is?

I made a comic!

I took a comics workshop with Kevin Woolridge from Heavy Sweater Comics today and had a grand time.

A photo of a comic strip drawn on white paper
Image description: a top down photo of a comic drawn on a white sheet of paper. There is a pencil on the right and the base of a drink can be seen at the top of the photo. The comic is three panels. In the first panel, a ghost -shaped person who is wearing a shirt with the letter B on it and who has an angry expression is saying ‘Hey! That’s my hat!’ to another ghost shaped person who is wearing a hat with the letter B on it and a shirt with the letter M on it is replying ‘No man, this is mine.’ In the second panel the first guy says ‘Listen Mike, there’s a B on it for me, Bob.’ And Mike replies ‘Um, well…’ and in the third panel, Bob is there, alone, and he’s shouting, ‘Mike!’ But Mike has left, there are three lines on the right indicating that Mike zipped away.

Hmm, three working Fridays in a row

Today was another good work Friday.

That means three Fridays in a row have been good work days but all for different reasons.

The first one, our schedule had changed because we were isolating. I got on a roll with my work and could stick with it until the early evening.

Last week, I took my meds late and had an unexpectedly focused work session after supper.

Today, I made a plan and could stick with it even though I got interrupted and had to switch tasks unexpectedly a few times.

I wonder if I have been focusing on the wrong end of the week.

I have been trying to bring myself to a four day work week by taking Fridays off (it has rarely worked) but maybe I need to plan to work Friday and take Mondays off?
