Free Time!?

My friends often complain that I am too busy. When I'm not illustrating books or painting, what do I do? My current activities are summarized below.


  • At Stand Up Placer, I participate in cookie exchanges for volunteers. What is Stand Up Placer (SUP)? We save lives by empowering survivors and educating communities about domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking.We save lives by empowering survivors and educating communities to stand up to domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking. I am a member of their Advisory Committee.

  • I need to oil my paper shredder

  • My Google Photos storage space needs to be cleared out

  • Maintaining a garden is an important part of gardenin

  • Make sure the washing machine trap is clean

  • The trash, compost, and recyclables should be disposed of (I am recycling)

  • Prepare organic gluten-free, salt-free, sugar-free, and lactose-free meals using recipes from MaxLiving.comMaxLiviing.com recipes

  • Chiropractic adjustments are provided by New Life Chiropractic, a MaxLiving chiropractor

  • Commission checks are deposited in my business bank account

  • I visit our art galleries that display my work including, but not limited to E Street Gallery in Sacramento

  • GO to church. I facilitate a MendingtheSoul.or support group for abuse survivors.

  • I grocery shop. I know where all the salt-free items are located in the Winco store!

  • I try to keep my desk cleaned off. Have to do it every January for tax purposes.

  • I exercise three times a week. Sometimes that is with a happy group on the trail.

  • I clean our bathrooms

  • I work with Sidney from Yelp to try and acquire some art collectors of my work

  • I rejuvenate some charcoal filters I have around the house by moving them to the sunlight as I need to have clean air to breathe. I have asthma.

  • I apply to have my artwork shown in local galleries. I am hoping to hear today from the 2023 Wild & Scenic Film Festival to see if my South Yuba CommUNITY painting was accepted into their show. You can see a photo of the painting below.

  • Spend time with my 89 year-old mother and two disabled brothers and one sister-in-love. My mom wrote her first book in her eighties! I am hoping she will be making an appearance at the Art League of Lincoln in February for local artists and illustrators.

  • And last, but not least we spend time with our beautiful youngest daughter and her family! We have two sweet daughters, but only one lives nearby with her two kids.

Please tell me about your "spare time". What fun things do you like to do? Art? Music?
