Allie Brosh!

I love this video of Allie Broch featured on avideomagazine.com. Really, what isn’t there to love about her? But I keep thinking about where she says she spends about half her time looking at what other people are doing and the other half creating in order to stay inspired. (or something like that, I can’t rewind it and transcribe because my laptop is dyyyyying!) I think that is really true. So no more guilt for surfing the net and not hitting that to-do list for us creative people!

Phew! We’re back.

As you can see we had a pretty good time at the lake. I don’t think I’m going to back-blog it like I have other years but I did sketch the whole time so after I dig my scanner out from under the pile of un-opened mail, I might scan those and put them up.

If I had to pick a theme for this year’s trip it would NOT be fishing like it was last year. We did fish but we only caught bluegills. I would probably have to say that getting a kick-ass tan would be this year’s theme. It wasn’t intentional…I do have to worry about skin cancer and all but when you spend all day out on a lake basking in the sun, a few rays are bound to break through the 50 SPF sunblock. I think I have FINALLY gotten rid of my usual all-year-around farmer’s tan.

And Bug got stung by a hornet. But other than that it was just pretty much your average fun family trip at the lake!

It’s good to be back. Now if only I could figure out a way to ignore all these dishes, the pesky deadlines, an empty refrigerator, two hungry mouths that need to be fed and all the other thousands of household chores that need my attention…
