Late – Strings – IF

It has been a while, well not really…a week and I feel like I’m late for my IF entries. Last week, the IF word “strings”. stayed on my mind, but I couldn’t get a free moment for myself!

I thought about fate’s strings, spaghetti strings, heart strings and yarn strings, but it just wasn’t working for me nor the time to do it.

So today, while sitting on the sofa, listening to classical music, trying to organize a day of chores. Doodling on old scraps of drawing paper, I thought, well the new word is “late” and boy, do I know about “late” lately. I decided to do musical strings and submit it “late!”

Don’t you just love it when you can do two things at once! Now, if only I can do my household chores like that! Ugh!

Classical string music and chores…now that’s surreal to me…:)
Put the music on in your life, it’s never too late for that! Peace to you all.

  1. Thank yoiu for your moody comment ;-)

  3. Two things at once! You can’t argue with that. This is wonderful and charming. I like the way that the lines of your instruments flow one into the other.

  7. Very clever! 2 for 1
    One is entitled to a break at times…

    But you did manage to tie this situation into a neat little musical package, plus in a timely manner.

    Best to you and breath :)

  12. Now that’s an excellent doodle. I love doing two things at once, but the older I get, the less I’m able to multi-task. boohoo.

  21. Well you are very clever. You just tied two birds with one string! Hmn, classical music while doing chores. Now that is classy.

  23. That’s a pretty drawing! I’ve never been any good with doing instruments, but I really like your stylization (is that even a real word?).

  24. Hi Indigene,
    You are actually not late.
    Listening and relaxing raround, getting inspiration out.
    This is a lovely sketch.
    It’s so nicely done.
    Thanks for your great sharing.
    So many great ideas you have but not free to get it out.
    I agree with you, this time you can do two things at once!
    I do wish you and I can do the household chores like this. Fun:)
