A Brief Blogging Break

I've decided to take a couple days off from blogging as I'm feeling just a tad bit burnt out, overwhelmed, and somewhat sad around the edges. With all that this seemed like the perfect time to practice stepping away from the blog for a bit being as how I do not intend to blog regularly - if at all - when I head west later on this month.

So, while I try to get the rest of the house organized and maybe finally paint the kitchen, I am going to leave you with another of Amanda's line drawings. I've decided the kid has a definite gift for the macabre ... Vincent Price probably would have loved her!


Everyone take it easy and I will be back and try to catch up to all of you in a couple of days.

  1. I love Amanda's macabre style! Just look at the characters about to dine eyeballs LOL.

    Have fun with your little rest, you deserve it! :)

  2. What a great drawing..Amanda certainly has an interesting take on things. That platter of eyeballs (sauteed?) looks yummy.

    Enjoy your time to yourself, Linda. Royalty needs R&R too!

Take your well-deserved break, and think as hard as you need to about the things which are plaguing your mind. My own thoughts & prayers are with you, and hopes for a positive resolution! Know that you are loved, my friend! :-)

  9. Believe me, a break from blogging here and there does help tremendously! I've been scarce the last few days because of being sick with a head cold but not being on the computer all the time truly did feel good:-) xoxo

  10. Take whatever time you need to renew and refresh. I have to every now and then.

    Amanda is quite imaginative and talented. She has a sort of Tim Burton style. Maybe she'll be rich and famous one day! An illustrator for Hollywood?

  12. I wondered how you were doing when you missed yesterday's scenery with Lee. It's been a horrid week, I know. Lots of sadness and it tends to bleed over.
    Rest your spirit and mind. I don't think your poor body will ever get rested!!!
    As you know, I think Amanda rocks with the pen and paper dance...
    Love you,
    ~~~Blessings~~~

    Cheers

  18. I thought I was the only one just weary of moving and work. Work has been so busy and I'm still doing one carload a night from the house to the apartment.
    Take some time...get outside and come back with great photos.
    Amanda is amazing but I don't have to tell you that you already know.

  19. That's quite a well-drawn and stylistically original image - it takes that kind of talent to go places, so kudos to Amanda. By the way, I just read your latest post and I agree that there's a lot of negativity going around already so you're wise to hold back even though there are certain things you'd like to say. Not that blogging shouldn't be an outlet for those things, but it has to come in the right time and context.
