Painting: Girl Wearing Orange Earrings, on Cradled Wood Panel, February 2nd, 2023

Due to my sleep disorder, this painting was done late at night and into the morning. Here are my paint brushes: In the end, I used all of these colors, plus a few more.

Tuesday, July 26th

Tuesday, July 26th Today was much cooler than it has been lately and Jason encouraged me to go outside and enjoy my garden. So, I gave myself permission and I did just that! Give yourself permission In this fast paced world we live in, it’s important to give ourselves permission to just BE…to sit still…toContinue reading “Tuesday, July 26th”

my favorite time of the day

It’s Thursday, June 30th and it’s my favorite time of the day, coffee time! I was hoping Jason would join me in the garden like he did on Wednesday but he’s in the mood to bake bread, which is one of his favorite things! Today, I spent way too much time petting Buttercup and writingContinue reading “my favorite time of the day”

A Restful Saturday

Saturday, we were too tired after a long week to attempt any of the Md Ice Cream Trail . Instead, we stayed home. Jason played on his computer and I wrote. Later in the day we ended up googling and daydreaming about possible vacation spots. We probably won’t actually be able to go anywhere thisContinue reading “A Restful Saturday”

Visiting the Garden Center

Tidying the Kitchen Pantry

Today’s forecast is rain, so it’s a good day to reorganize the kitchen pantry.

On one half of the pantry, the shelvesContinue reading “Tidying the Kitchen Pantry”

A Lazy Sunday

Today feels like the definition of a lazy summer Sunday. The weather is perfect. Temperatures are in the mid to high 70s, a breeze is blowing and the trees are shading the back yard.

A Garden Center, a Homeless Man and a Sunburn

A Garden Center, a Homeless Man and a Sunburn. Those 3 things do not sound like they go together, but they did for me on Friday.

Today’s Main Goal

Today’s main goal is to fold and put away sheets and coverlets …or atleast fold them. It’s another beautiful day and it’s very difficult for me to be inside on a nice day. My heart is just constantly pulling me towards the outdoors and my gardens. Maybe it’s because I wasn’t really allowed to goContinue reading “Today’s Main Goal”
