I have to say, it was nice. I slept in this morning. I woke up to my cat licking my face.
It was so quiet. No kids.
I had so many things I wanted to get done, I almost became immobile. But alas, I rose, I went outside, picked tomatoes from my garden, got peaceful, sipped a cup of coffee, and got going.
First things first, besides the mountains of laundry, my bills have been neglected too! I sat down opened, sorted, paid. It felt good to cross them off the list.
Next I went outside to assess my future project for this week:
My husband built us the coolest outdoor shower last summer. However, due to my 365 creativity challenge, the shower and weeding have gone neglected. I am going to incorporate my outdoor shower into my 365 challenge and funk-it-up! I want people to open the door and not expect to see such a fun and wild space, well actually “people” mainly being my family. I love my outdoor shower. It is so fun to use, It needs some love! So I came up with my ideas – top-secret! Went to the store to buy paint and supplies and will tackle this project little by little, throughout the week.
Next, I cut, arranged and sketched my dahlias. I was afraid the petals would fall off by tomorrow. I worked on that for a little bit and then I moved on to finishing my black-eyed Susan painting.
Another bud vase from my windowsill completed. I am trying feverishly to paint these little studies as fast as possible. Everything in my garden is beginning to wither. I have a plan for two more after the dahlias, and then I should feel as if they are complete.
Now, the next thing on my list is to have a gorgeous dinner with my husband. He is making me this red wine & black olive risotto I love and then the final thing on my list that I’d like to get accomplished, is to take a hot bubble bath. I have been finishing my art so late at night, I haven’t had time for that simple indulgence.
I played hard today. It feels good. Now I’m ready to relax!
