Time To Celebrate

Two Mice Toasting Glasses Of Champagne Watercolor Illustration

For Day 15 of World Watercolor Month and our optional prompt of “Cheer,” I sketched a couple of mice celebrating with two glasses of champagne. I’m not entirely certain this particular toast ends without a slippery, massive mess, but it was fun to imagine! We’re half way through this month of watercolor celebration and if, like me, you’re going for that ultimate challenge of 31 watercolors in 31 days, then congrats! You’re half way there! Well, technically, after tomorrow I guess since that’s the true middle. But, it’s Friday, so let’s celebrate now and all weekend long! Personally, I’ve had a blast returning to daily posts, as I’m continually surprised as to what I end up with each day. I’d love to tell you that I’ve thoroughly thought through all of these prompts, but that’s simply not the case. Instead, I just look at the list and sketch the first thing that comes to mind each day. If you’ve been following along with me, then you’ve just had a two-week glimpse into my brain. And, it should pretty much explain everything about me.

It’s fun to jump into a whimsical world and sort of imagine the most impossible things. It’s been a very busy month and my head has been in a million different places at once. So, if I can hang out with my animal stand-ins for awhile, then I can take a much-needed breather before jumping back into everything else. Also, I’ve been taking my little dog Elliott out for a walk and playtime with his friend in the evenings, so that’s been lovely as well. He gets so excited when he’s heading to the spot where he normally meets his friend. It’s fun to watch his entire body wag in anticipation as then stop entirely as he stares into the distance willing her to appear. It’s super cute! And then we she does arrive, Elliott tackles her on the ground and begins to bite at her neck in the oddest greeting ever and the party begins! It’s truly like a party as there are drinks and everything. Just water, of course, but if the bartender is slow, the howls will begin.

And, I’m ready to celebrate the fact that it’s once again pizza night and the start of the weekend. You’d think that after all of this time, it would begin to be so routine that it doesn’t really get exciting anymore. But, you’d be wrong. I get just as thrilled every single week! I think it’s just the fact that it’s the one time I truly log off and then spend the evening watching a movie or doing something else entirely. It’s a beautiful escape indeed. I think I should probably do it more than just once a week. Take the break, not eat that much pizza. But, then it wouldn’t be so special and fun. So, with that, I’ll say that I hope you all have an absolutely fabulous weekend. No matter what’s happening in your world, I think you should join me in spirit! It’s time to celebrate!

    It isn’t so odd that you still enjoy Pizza Night after all this time. Look at Elliott – he gets a walk every day, but that just makes him all the more excited when it’s time. People used to live with much stronger routines, and it’s only us spoiled modern folk that think novelty should be a regular event.

    Those kinds of things like pizza night are so special and something to look forward to. I really like your painting! It’s so sweet and I am so there with you to celebrate. I’m so ready to live my life again and celebrate little things that are truly big in my economy. Not worrying about money, dressing better than just shorts, not worrying about shoes hurting my foot, going out to dinner with friends, wearing makeup again, etc. It’s the little things in life that make life…well…life and bring joy. 😀 Sending you hugs, my friend.

      Thanks, mi amiga! 😃💕 It’s definitely the little things that count most. And even if we can’t have all of the little things we want in the moment, there’s still plenty of little joys to be found! Hugs to you!

    First thought, best thought. Right on. Yay pizza! I have a big piece every Wednesday when I don’t eat fish, meat, or chicken and can have more cheese than usual. I cut my pizzas into six slabs I mean slices heheh. Awesomeness prevails.
