Returning

Yesterday, I had to go to the my office to print up documents for a project for work. It was a lot of pages to print up at home, so going to the office was the only answer. I’ve been back in the office only one other time since we were shut down. My desk …

Effy's Blog Challenge

Last Day!

Today is the last day of Effy Wild’s April Blogging challenge. While I didn’t do it every day, I posted way more than I have in a long time. It was such a pleasure to read blogs again and learn about other people. Facebook and Twitter feels like surface level learning about people. Blogging feels much …

April Year of Mary

Give in to Joy

I finally finished the painting I started the other day. It is from Effy Wild’s “Year of Mary. There were a number of times where I was feeling frustrated with this girl and wanted to throw it in the bin. I decided to start talking to her lovingly and thinking nice, lovely thoughts towards the painting …

Flowers of Cabo

Here are some beautiful flowers I took photos of while we were in Cabo. When I finally have some time to paint and create again, I’m going to use these as inspiration. I’m obsessed with flowers and whenever I get a chance when I’m out and about, I take lots of pictures to the happy …

Body Beautiful

We arrived in Cabo Thursday afternoon. We are very fortunate to be staying in an amazing resort called Montage. Our room has gorgeous views of the ocean. We have had incredible food and have been able to relax by the pool. Confession – I spent way too many years hating my body. It really is …

The Bird in the Storm

Art I’m in a rut, artistically speaking, right now. I’ve signed up for quite a few things this year and nothing is speaking to me. Yesterday, I continued working on a piece that I started this week-end and I’m very “meh” about it right now. I try to be gentle with myself as a newbie …

Just a quickie

Today we are taking my husband’s granddaughter out for a day trip to see one of his rentals, then to visit my parents for a bit. I’ll write more tomorrow with hopefully some pictures. Have a great day everyone and happy Saturday.

Playing in dirt and the joy of canning

Last year, about a month or so into the pandemic, we decided to take up gardening. I purchased a raised garden bed, we purchased bags of dirt and chicken poop, and a variety of starter plants, like zucchini, tomatoes, cantaloupe, bell peppers, and strawberries. Everything grew well enough to give me the idea that maybe …

Nature is a curative

Some days this pandemic makes me cranky. I’m in a new marriage. I moved in with my new husband in November 2019. The pandemic hit in the early part of 2020 and we were in lockdown by March 2020. So we have been with each other 24/7 pretty much since then. It’s a test to …

Getting back to normal

Yesterday in a word felt normal. I went out into the world by myself to do shopping for Easter and for my boys who have birthdays about a week apart. I went into Ulta to buy some of my favorite products and spent more than I was planning because it felt so indulgent. Tomorrow morning …
