Outside my window...the morning light has such a fall feeling even though it will be in the 90’s today. Darker in the studio..until the leaves fall off the big maples.
I am thinking… that I will do my best not to complain today – I do a lot of complaining and I think I need a rest from it.
I am thankful for...the paint smears on my hands, my “it’s all good” coffee cup with polka dots, my dog sleeping on the floor behind me and this precious day.
From the kitchen...not a heck of a lot. I need to get some groceries.
I am wearing...my turquoise cotton nightshirt and glasses.
I am creating...art journal pages in a 16 page journal I made on luscious Fabriano Artistico watercolor according to Teesha Moore’s video instructions. Man, is it gorgeous paper! It loves paint and ink !!!
I am going...to go for a good walk with the pooch when this post is done.
I am reading...beachy trashy romance novels for total escapism and fantasy.
I am hoping. Period.
I am hearing...the wind rustling the big maple tree outside my studio windows and further out, the Monday morning noise of the city.
Around the house...laundry to fold, groceries to buy, bed to be made, animals napping.
One of my favorite things...the cards I made for Se’lah’s Gift of Jewels giveaway – I am going to add them to the Etsy shop today.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Meditation Monday tonight, a haircut (need one badly !), creating in the studio and a possible trip to Montreal for Labor Day (tba)
Here are some pictures I am sharing…
I actually got knocked over and bounced around by the wicked undertow – luckily there are no photos of that or of my badly bruised pride and legs.
This morning’s page in my art journal…
“ memories flood in...
regrets tug in one direction...
joys tug in another...
how do you hold a lifetime in your hands?
and what do you do now?
maybe you do the only thing that
ever really mattered -
you offer love.
you give love.
you receive love.
you breathe love.
you live love.
you love. ”
