It appears that it is Wednesday, meaning it is time for me to post something. Unfortunately I have been very, very, very, very busy. This is what I have to show for my busy-ness…. I have been working on this for the past month….


A bit blank….

I know, stunning… one of my best pieces… WHERE DOES THE TIME GO?????
I asked one of my lovely Flourish Forum friends, and she sent me this:-

Erm… yes, this does all feel rather familiar…. So from this day onwards I am going to start writing lists and ticking things off, I feel that this is the only cure… so… I am away… to write a list… at the top of the list it will say: Write a post for next Wednesday…

    Yikes! That’s exactly why I don’t get anything done either! SIgh…

    If it’s not too late, you could always pretend you’ve done loads of calligraphy using invisible ink?

    P.S. Yay! First!

        You can use it in your printer too. There are some historical mixtures from early modern times. I once wanted to make my own ink, so had a look into these things, but it’s so long ago, it’s even not real anymore.

        Thank you, Mr Mags, it seems WordPress is being over zealous and I have retrieved your comments from the spam box… now then, let me have a look at this invisible ink printer. Hopefully they’ll be no more invisible comments!

    Darling, don’t look at me. I have no idea where this year has gone, much less the last month.

    My To Do List sucks.

      Thank you, Ms Rose! I’ve already forgotten to start writing a list… and am, for some reason, reading Wikipedia and nodding sagely. I have no idea how I ended up on Wikipedia. And so the bafflement of time slipping away continues….

    I was told it was called “Dizzy Queen” syndrome. But whatever it’s called it is another reason to outlaw automatic machine guns to public.

    Right, I must just make a comment on Ms Scarlet’s fascinating post. Oh, hang on, I think it’s about to rain and I must get the washing off the line urgently. Oh and I think that’s the phone ringing, it might be an emergency. I won’t be two ticks….

    I think you might have a better time doing a “Not to do” list, which is not too hard to generate and doesn’t involve any activity except a slight amount of penmanship mixed with whimsy. Job done, kettle on, lets open the digestive biscuits 🙂

      Oh, Mr Ducks… that maybe what that blank sheet of paper is! My ‘Not To Do’ list 🙂
      I’ve had to swerve the biscuits since being back from holiday… got to keep the derrière in shape.

    Oh dear…are we all in the same age bracket? Whatever you do, don’t let your Man loose with a can of paint… I ‘d forgotten we had so much stuff til I had to move it so we (he) could paint the walls.All the walls. Roses, my love, is there any wine left?
    (I’m hopeless with lists. I always forget to take them with me!)

    I knew that paper-making would be next !
    Sorry I have no clue where time goes to. I observed that it runs at different speeds, especially when it’s hot, time does not run away, but becomes sticky and doughy.

    But your piece has lovely, clean lines. It’s blank beauty is pure and uncluttered. I wouldn’t be so quick to dismiss it. There’s an entire gallery full of blank canvasses in the Museum of Modern Art. They’re looked upon with great admiration. Rauschenberg built a career on them.

        I’m sorry, dearest Scarlet, the comment in which I link to the manufacturer and seller of invisible ink for ink-printers is not there (I tried twice) – is it possible that only four answers to a comment are allowed ? Or that replying to a reply’s reply is not possible ?

    I’m particularly enjoying the invisible comments. They’re so laid-back and unassuming. They don’t shout at you for attention. Which is helpful when one has a monstrous hangover.
