those kinds of days


good morning! here are a few silly doodles inspired by a rare string of good idea and good worker-bee days i've had recently. i must have been feeling exceptionally optimistic when i made these, as i didn't consider the option of a do-nothing day. i have plenty of those, too, so i'd better get busy on that do-nothing doodle ;) what kind of day are you having? i love that every day starts fresh with potential - anything (or nothing) could happen...

I'm having one of those days where you wake up late and rush to get to work to find everyone else is late... (Maybe I should have dried my hair with that extra 5 minutes!)

Have a good one whatever you do :)

Yesterday was an exhausting laundry day. Today is a road trip day! Have a great weekend!

Me too, this morning I woke up feeling thankful for a new day.

I see a salad spinner plate. :)

{I hope you had a fun coffee date yesterday, I wanted to join, but am swamped before school begins. Thank you to you & R. for the invite.}

could I possibly have a "today is... oh well, we'll see what today brings us day" one?
pretty please...

aimee said...

krissy - i'm suffering the same dilemma at the moment - to dry the hair or not? - so far the day is going la ninja's way, just waiting to see what the next hour will bring.

heather - oh, yes, i guess you would recognize that plate :) good luck with school starting! and nina, have a great road trip!

ok. off to draw!

I love these! Would love one for every day of the week, & I can see myself switching it out depending on the day. "Today is Do Nothing Day!" "Today is Networking Day!" "Today is Coaching Day!" Love, love, love.

Aw, I came here to take a break, now I need to go back and finish my work!

Your colors look more delicious than this high-calorie chocolate bar I am eating which is making me sleepy!

lately all of my days have been "get it done"... i feel like i'm behind and it's my to-do list that defines my day. i'm looking forward to some idea days!

togay's been another busy bee day!!!
a do nothing day would do me at the moment though :) awww lovely thought!

Liz said...

One of those days where I am trying my best to stick to the list, and somehow keep veering. I have decided at 12:39 it is time for lunch, and giving in to the Veer. But I am loving adding the word potential to all my mornings.

Anairam said...

Those sound like busy days! My day today was a lazy day. I'm having too many of those lately. I need to get myself in gear. Oh, I forgot: today was submitting-my-provisional-tax-form-day. It is done online and takes about 1 minute and a click of the Submit button, yet I have to psyche myself up for about 3 weeks beforehand. Then I have a week's worth of sleepless nights and nightmares, and then eventually I log on to the site and do it. It is weird. I really do not understand why I behave that way.

it it so hot here. i'm glad i'm home. happy drawing!

joanne said...

today is... "did i really go to the store looking like THAT day"

i didn't even recognize myself when i passed by my reflection in the store, which was odd given that i do have a mirror inside my home... and i didn't even bother to put a hat and sunglasses on to attempt to hide... heehee

These ones are great! A fresh optimism!

jess gonacha said...

What fun! But yes, I think you need a 'do-nothing day' one, too. I have those sometimes, too!

soulbrush said...

i'm having a do-nothing -but-art month...yahoo...how about some of these in ATC form to trade with me girl??

aimee said...

oh!! you all have given me some great ideas - i think i have enough material now for an entire series of 'today is (fill in the blank) day" doodles...

cactus petunia said...

Every time I read your blog, it's an inspiration day for me. Thanks!!

L'Atelier said...

OMG! I love them! and how true they are, days often take on a character - as in get it done day etc. brilliant!

today was my craftmeeting day- so it was all about wool, knitting and wonderful women

violette said...

You are an amazing artist Aimee....and such an inspiration to me!

Love, Violette
