Happy President’s Day

I just burnt my mouth on some Hot Apple Cider.  Ooooowwww.
That will teach me to start something and forget that the drink is still hot.
That is not what I am going to write about today.
Honestly I have no idea what to write about.  Monday blog posts are hard for me.  If I have been lazy over the weekend, then I have not much to write about.  If I was active, I forget that I need to write and then become stumped.
Today is a mixture of both.  I was lazy and I have not done much since Thursday (lots of reading!)  I did get my butt in gear yesterday and started something new.  I did a bunch of errands today AND started a silkscreen project!
I have been thinking about all the meaningful and mundane things that I did (most of us probably did) with our parents.  Trips to the grocery store, having a meal in a diner, fishing, swimming lessons, just going for a walk.  Maybe even the silly things like dressing in their cloths, stealing their cigarettes, and playing house.
Mostly I have thought about all the times I went to the grocery store.  I cannot even remember the mundane ones.  I remember the one where I vomited in the car as soon as we got home, chicken noodle soup all over the passenger side.  I remember the trip where one of us kids was riding the back of the cart and the other rammed it into the apple display.  I also remember the one where I got separated and lost.  One of my favorites is the time we went shopping and had to ride the bus. I had to help carry groceries and Mom asked me to itch her nose.
Despite those I know there were some that were actually good mundane trips.  Where we did not cause a problem for mom or have anything that made it memorable, but it is still worth cherishing.  Mundane events that, maybe, someone watching had a nice thought. These are the ones I want to try to capture because those are the special ones.  They have all the feelings because no-one thinks they are special.
I have a few ideas for camping “memories” and eating out.  I am always interested in suggestions to add to the list of things to paint or draw.
No drawing or illustration for today’s post.
I am also going to be busy this week.  I am trying out another new job.
Plus gearing up for Emerald City Comicon.  So close yet so far away.
