Decisions, Decisions: Which One Next?

Some ideas I have for future Artist Dates:

  • get a facial or a manicure... I haven't done this since I was in high school
  • ride a bike - hum...have to make sure the bike still has tires...
  • go to a theatre production
  • go to a concert
  • go bowling - or maybe just watch!
  • take a walk in the park
  • listen to choir practice at the church
  • visit a museum - there are a couple in downtown that I keep passing but never stop in
  • go to a toy store - I probably will skip the Barbie and the HotWheels sections though
  • go on a thrift store shop hop - there are a couple of thrift stores in small area in downtown
  • get a new musical instrument like a tin whistle or a lap harp and learn to play at least one song
  • watch a sunset - hope I have the camera with me
  • visit a second-hand bookstore - I have books to take with me to sell
  • buy a loaf of bread and feed the ducks
  • poke around in an antique store
  • visit the library and look at the sections I typically bypass
  • get some herb plants or seeds and make an herb garden
  • learn to make strudel - have my granny's recipe
  • get frozen breaddough and sculpt turtles or some other animal
  • fly a kite
  • build a sandcastle
  • paint a picture using my toes
  • visit the hardware store
  • cook a pot of stew or soup - mumm...and a loaf of bread too
  • make cinnamon dough ornaments
  • roll down a grassy hill - might have to be careful with this one
  • make snow angels - dunno when I will find snow in So Cal but I will be on the lookout!
  • make a greeting card and send it to someone
  • make a locker-hook rug
  • do some flower pounding
  • get some bath crayons and draw all over the bathtub
  • write a poem about the colors orange, purple and silver

Nice list! Nobody says you only have have choose ONE, you know ;-)

I used to live near an old fashioned toy store with lots of inexpensive wind-up toys ... after a few Artist Dates, I ended up with quite a collection.

Since your artist child said "No buying" the other day at the store, mine said "Let's Buy". I came home with an Artist Fairy doll!

Great list! I'm not sure about the cooking, though. Sounds like work to me. :) I especially love the crayons in the bathtub one.

Oh no Debra...the artist child said "BUY BUY BUY - BUY IT ALL FOR ME"...artist mom had to say.."No way, buster...I'm not made of money, yanno. I gotta WORK for that stuff..."

Rian...its the cleaning up after cooking that I can't stand! Love how the house smells with a good stew bubbling away...and I keep lifing the lid just to get a deep whiff!

What a mean artist mom!

I was telling Wes about my blog yesterday on fairies & mentioned that I had introduced my Artist Fairy. He looked at me & laughed, "Your Artist What?" I'm sure he thinks I have a screw loose.
