Outside my window...it is 67 degrees at 9:00 am and we are expecting a high of 90. In April. In NH. Weird stuff !
Maple buds bursting..
I am thinking... mornings go way to fast and that the computer sucks so much time but that I love blogging !
I am thankful... that I am feeling a little better today. Stomach issues suck the energy out of you !
In the kitchen...looking for dairy free goodies for me and animal product free stuff (short term) for David as we make some big changes to how we are eating and try to be really mindful about what we put into our bodies.
I am wearing...my blue t-shirt cotton night shirt and eggplant-colored El Naturalista clogs. Oh, and very bad bed head !
I am creating...little bits of art again and it feels so good.
I am going...to the Health Food store, the grocery store and the post office. Woo hoo !
I am reading... information about being lactose intolerant and Probiotics. A life without cheese ?!?! Kind of depressing but it may just be the ticket!
I am hoping... that making some good changes in my diet will help me feel better and give me more energy.
I am looking forward to...my visit with Colleen this week. We have a secret creative project that I am excited about ! More later…
Around the house... windows are open, the birdies are serenading us and the furry pets are having their morning sunbeam naps.
Boo in a studio sunbeam.
One of my favorite things...the carwash ! The Rogue-y is back to its sexy, shiny self !
A few plans for the rest of the week: meditation class tonight, creative time with Colleen, a haircut and hopefully some more art time !
Some pictures to share with you : I made art ! Yay !
First up was adding my piece to my Creative Sister Eva’s book for the Creative Sisters Travelling Sketchbook project. We had gotten way behind due to life’s little challenges and that meant that I was creating a spread for the month of January in the month of April.
But since January is usually my least favorite month of the year, I was still inspired !
Eva’s book will be on its way to Jennifer today and hopefully, we can now keep up with the new flow, right, Sistahs ?
I also got to work on a 12 X 12 canvas I had started a while back.
The background was done, and these bits got added to it in two separate sessions.
The first session of Friday afternoon was actually very frustrating.
My girl’s face was soft blues and Payne’s grey but just wouldn’t work for me.
I ended up painting over the whole thing with black ink, and leaving it aside for the night.
I am still not sure I love it all.
But there are definite sweet spots in it that feel so good to my Artist Eye.
I am so pleased that I finally had some time to mess around and just create.
The rusty bits will soon smooth out with the creative oils being applied as needed !
So that’s the scoop around here on this fine Monday.
I hope that your week has some moments where you can do exactly what you love !
Light and love, Beautiful Ones !
