lazy daisy...


crying girl 1

i have been shamefully lazy these last two weeks. i have completed neglected my wifely duties. envision sinkfuls of dirty dishes. dust bunnies multiplying. piles of clothes strewn about. pizza and ice cream for dinner. i have mainly been drawing and eating. a lot. and reading mary poppins. maybe i just should hire her to come and take care of our apartment. maybe she will let me borrow her carpet bag and funny little hats. and maybe she'll take me jumping inside chalk drawings.

or maybe i will grow up and tend to my adult-ish responsibilities.

Maybe. But there is something about this time of year that makes us turn inward and sort of nourish our souls heading into the long dark winter months...like storing up soul-food!

Wish I can draw or sketch like you! More, more!

ooh mary poppins is the best! everyone has lapses... pizza dinners are sometimes the best too... and you haven't been entirely unproductive! you're spewing out these beautiful drawings like nobody's business!

I know all about neglecting the wifely duties. The bad thing is, my hubby doesn't care if I neglect them. I swear, we're like two little kids living all by themselves in a house. It has to be bad to be so undisciplined ;)

I stumble upon this blog of boastful smugness and twee nonsense once in a while, and though you do have a seemingly delightful life and style, you really can't draw well.

It's hard to keep up with adult-like tasks! Sometimes you've got to take a few lazy days.

that drawing is fabulous! i love it.

I go through phases like that too ..where I just don't want to do it! You'll get to it. I'm sure your husband won't mind as long as you're keeping up ONE wifely duty ...wink wink ;)

Our dust bunnies are bigger than our actual bunny. Once day I'll tackle them.

I love your drawings, they're gorgeous!

I love seeing the ghostly little ledger numbers behind her... how gorgeous!

I am also the worst at tending to my wifely duties! I'm good at making things pretty and letting them fall to the wayside immediately.... it's sort of a manic wife thing- like a modern wife... I think :)

I recommend just hiring Mary Poppins.

you know it's funny you brought up Mary Poppins. i was on the muni the other day when a women walked who look and was dressed exactly like Mary Poppins! i couldn't believe i thought i was going to burst into rainbow, it was totally epic.

.. i just thought I'd let you know
i hope you post some of your drawings I'd love to see.
