I have a friend who blogs just about every day and I’m looking at my site and it’s been two months!  I’m thinking I must be the slowest blogger on the planet.  So she says to me, “you need to blog more, just put in a tip or two if you can’t think of anything.”  Well, it’s not that I can’t think of anything, I have plenty going on in my life, it’s just that I can’t seem to find the time with everything else that I do.  You’d think with me being unemployed now for four months that I’d have plenty of time, but alas, I’m busier than ever.  In fact, I don’t know how I ever had time for a J.O.B.!  I am sure that some of you can empathize with me on that score.  It seems that many people I talk to who are “retired”, whether of their own accord or through circumstances like mine, are busier than a hen on a hot tin roof.  This is as close of a picture of a hen on a hot tin roof as I could find (actually, Foghorn Leghorn is a rooster and he’s laying in the sun on the ground, not on the roof, but beggars can’t be choosers, as the saying goes).  If you don’t know who Foghorn Leghorn is, check out this Foghorn Leghorn link to watch these great classic Warner Bros. cartoons.

FoghornSo, here’s my small, very small tip for the day.  When my micron pen begins skipping, as if the ink is running out, I don’t like using it to create my Zentangles.  So what I do is, I wrap a small piece of masking tape around it so that I can use it for fill in.  There’s still plenty of ink left in it for fill in so I don’t like throwing them away, and the tape keeps me from picking it up and thinking it’s a good pen to start tangling with.  Hope that’s of help.

With that being said, I’m way behind on reporting what I’ve been doing, so my goal is to put up a couple of posts a week to try to catch up.  As Chief Cook and Bottle Washer my time seems limited, but I do enjoy writing and sharing, so let’s see if I can keep this up.

Thanks to my friend, Gail Foley, for giving me the push!

Happy Tangling!  Bonnie 🙂
