I started this one on Feb 1 and thought I would share it’s finish. I really enjoyed painting this one. It’s looseness and transparent places appeal to me.
Dug out a still unfinished project from a few TADs ago and worked on that for a bit. It’s a crochet blanket.
Continued progress on the recipe book. This is a sort of “convenience store dinners” page.
This is another project I’ve been wanting to work on for a while. I’m turning a Hobonichi into a custom recipe book, with my favorite recipes and lists/reminders of easy grocery store meals, so I will hopefully spend less time in restaurants in future. January is going to be cold drinks (other than soda and Kool-Aid).

One fifth of the way there.
Today I dragged my butt out of bed and, among other things, tried a recipe I found online for an Earl Grey Mocha “Latte”.
I think that “should” be called a Mocha London Fog, but that was what it said on the recipe. Basically it was a little Earl Grey, a lot of warm milk, some honey, some vanilla, and some cocoa. Well, I didn’t have any cocoa, so I used Nutella. (≦v≦)
But I thought the hazelnut flavor was a nice touch. Actually, I think the only thing I’ll do differently next time is brew the tea way stronger. But I like my black tea strong. Oh, and I might actually try frothing the milk if I find my frother thingy. Honestly, I thought it was just fine without the foam.
This is definitely going in my recipe book for future use.
I felt so awful, I spent most of the day in bed. Every time I tried to sit up or stand up, I’d get dizzy. So, since I could work on it laying down in bed, I made another object oriented character sketch, for the other story featured in my Instawrimo stuff. This one was even harder than the first, but I’m a little happier with the results. This character doesn’t have a whole lot of stuff.
By the time I got home from work and a family dinner, I was feeling really awful and like I just needed to go to bed. This is what killed my attempt last month. So, I kept working on that set of yoga routines I want to make, and made a 15 minute routine built around the corpse pose. Hopefully I’ll find some more energy today and be able to work on something more tactile.
After all that work to get that Tribble done on time, I ended up not going to the parade after all because we were having my nephew’s birthday party.
Afterwards, I got back to my to-do list and made myself a new fifteen minute yoga routine built around the Table Top pose, to focus more of strengthening my wrists. Tried it out this morning, and I’m going to need to work at it a bit before I’ll be able to do the whole thing in one go.
If you don’t think that counts as a thing, I also took a pic of my “Christmas” amaryllis.
Today I ended up doing an “Object Oriented Character Sketch”, which is where you build a character by looking at the things they keep around them. I picked this because I wanted something I could do quickly and laying in bed (it was on the to-try list), but between thinking of appropriate objects and finding appropriate pictures, it ended up taking a few hours. Here’s the result. It focuses on the main character from one of the stories I made a vision board for, and the come as your character Instawrimo.
