Friday the 14th

Aren't you glad that yesterday was the 13th so today is not Friday the 13th? :) Weird stuff happen on Friday the 13th. Not to me though. 13 was never a bad day for me. I used to live in an apartment building with a street number 13 on the 13th floor in an apartment 103. Take the 0 out of it and you'll have another 13. :))

Anyway, I hurt my cat yesterday. I closed the door behind me and didn't see her there so I caught her leg in the door. She limped the whole day. I'm gonna see if she gets better today or not.

 I feel like I did absolutely nothing yesterday. I woke up thinking it was the weekend cause my hubby is home sick. Then I spent the whole day at the computer watching YouTube with occasional meal and bathroom breaks. It was like yesterday never happened. It made me think. I just wasted a whole day in my life.

I get like that sometimes. Well, a lot of the times. Thinking about the purpose of life. Why am I here, what am I suppose to be doing, what's the point and stuff like that. And it gets even worse on days like yesterday when you realize you just wasted a day doing absolutely nothing. And that would be fine if I was super busy and all around important. Then it would be called a relaxing day. But I'm thinking I can't really get more relaxed than I am right now so something better be coming along soon or I'll die of boredom.

Here's an old entry in my art journal. I tried to be pointillistic. :) Is that a word?
Linking to PPF. And if you want to enter my giveaway to win that painting you saw last week you'll need to go to The Butterfly Effect.

  1. Yes. Yes. I have those days ...,YouTube eats up lots of my days. I love my manslave...even more when he's at work.

  2. It's my thought we are supposed to have those 'do nothing' days. That's when ideas incubate and new inspiration percolates. Who knows -- I could be wrong, however you probably actually learned quite a lot from YouTube yesterday. So, m'dear, don't be so hard on yourself ... and stop abusing your animals or I will have to report you! :o) (Hope she's better today) hugs, Donna

  4. I knnow exactly what you mean about the purpose of life, wasted time etc. I feel like that every day at my boring 9-5 job when I think of all the things I'd much rather be doing instead! Then, come the weekend, I'm full of plans to paint this and draw that but then something always gets in the way (usually two cute dogs and a comfy sofa!) and I don't get nearly enough done before its the start of another working week.

    I love your pointillism!! great portrait. Happy PPF.

  5. Oh, and I hope your cat is better. I hate when I accidentally hurt my dogs -I clipped a claw too short once and my girl dog bled - I actually cried I felt so bad. She was fine though - just like cutting the quick on our own nails!

  6. I think we all have days like that. The internet has far too many distractions. Sometimes I find myself reading some utter rubbish on a news site about a celebrity I'm not even remotely interested in! I feel guilty doing it. Silly!

  7. I love your pointillistic attempt - great fun. Happy PPF/.

  9. We all need to give our brain a day off once in a while, but I know the feeling. I try and at least draw every day, that way I can say I did something semi-productive.

  10. I can relate to your wasted day because I do that quite often. I hope your cat is okay. They can be so quick that you don't even know they're there until it's too late.

    Your journal pages look lovely....very soft and dreamy.

  11. oh man, I almost cut one of my cats in half with the door last night. it was horrible. he seems okay today, but the guilt factor is a killer. I love your pointillistic painting (whether it's a word or not!). I have those days when I just can't get out of my own way, where every choice I make is the wrong choice, when I go to bed wanting a do-over. yuck. may today be a better day for you!

  12. Love your journal pages, nice work. Cheer up, life is good. I think the purpose of life is to enjoy, enjoy, and enjoy some more. Have a wonderful day.

  13. When you get old and retired, you will appreciate days when there is no agenda and you can just read or paint or play on the computer without guilt. Your painting in your journal is lovely. Enjoy the weekend.

    BTW, on someone's blog, I agreed with you in the comments, but somehow the "y" on your name didn't type. Sorry but you are called Natasha ma!

    Hope kitty's leg is ok.

  16. A beautiful picture with fantastic rich pointillist style, love to browse your notebook ime of art. Ah! I'm not superstitious, I have spent many bad things in normal days.

  17. Ah so cool! It's pretty Monet'ish in a way, no? Really beautiful work, the effect of the sun's yellow color blending in on the blue sky is really striking. ^-^

    (oh btw, regarding hastinghall2's comment, that would be my blog... lol XD)

  20. Hope the leg of your cat gets better! That's so sad! Reminds me of the time my little niece ran to follow me when I went to the bathroom and I accidentally close the door on her little fingers! To this day i cringe remembering! Thank God her fingers were fine! Patsy from

  24. So sorry about your kitty. I have done the same things with my dogs. And I feel awful afterwards. Usually they will limp a bit and get better...kind of like twisting your ankle. I hope kitty is fine soon. :) Love your art journal piece. Very light and definitely pointillistic (it's fun to create words!).

  25. I hope kitty is alright ;o) Love the painting! Don't worry about doing nothing! Sometimes we all need to do that! It gives our brain a rest ;o)

  26. I totally relate to everything you said, except for the kitty. Don't have a kitty anymore. Hope he feels better soon...I'm sure he knows it was an accident. Love your journal pages. You did a great job with pointillism. Hope your hubby is better real soon.

  30. How's your cat by now? Hopefully you are ALL okay - Your picture is SO Cool - love that you played with this technique (make me want to try it ;) and I'm glad you had a do-nothing day. Even if it wasn't planned, it was probably needed ;) xoxo

  32. I love that page!!! And yes, I have those days sometimes, and always think what a wasted day it was in my life! Hopefully all in your house are better now.

    ReplyDelete
  33. We ALL have those days. I usually always eat too much too!! I have to assess each day the night before and after in an attempt not to do it that often. Youtube can be addicting for some... Do you ever watch a guy named Ed Bassmaster?? funny stuff... (No that I am trying to contribute to your problem or anything!!!) ;)
