Sketch of the week

This is a pencil sketch scanned and colored digitally

A Smidgen of Wisdom

Every day has the possibility of being a good day - That's a direct quote from myself.
Sounds wise doesn't it? And I'm certain it's been said before. Yet it still struck me as a very fresh idea. If I can just remember when I awake each morning not to begin the day by wishing it to end, I might find there's time in the day to enjoy myself. Then I won't have to delay all my personal plans until the days off.
A few things I can enjoy doing when I get home from work that won't keep me from housework:
  • Playing a game with the kids - 20 minutes
  • Reading to the baby - 10 minutes
  • Petting or training the dogs - 10 minutes
  • Chatting with my husband - 30 minutes
  • E-mailing a friend - 10 minutes
  • Posting to my blog - 10 minutes
  • Praying - 15 minutes
  • Reading a book - 30 minutes


So someone asked me why Otter...
It's actually something strangers ask me all the time, but I'm not certain if my friends know. Somehow most people I become friends with just accept that I am Otter, no questions asked.
Anyway, I became Otter when my oldest was about a year old (11 years ago.) My husband and possibly some friends, I'm not certain, compared me to a mother Otter because of how I would cuddle and play with the baby. It stuck and I began reading more about Otters. I particularly liked Ring of Bright Water, by Gavin Maxwell. I still don't know as much about Otters as I should, but I sure do love the creatures and am proud to be one.
