here & now



 
 
 

 
Loving // changing up my schedule and walking every
morning

Eating //  two deserts a week now

Drinking // water, tea and coffee 

Feeling //  much better with ten lbs. off me 

Making //  working on my crochet blanket and trying to get back
to the peter pan and wendy painting

Thinking // about going to the beach next month and what I
want to take with me  

Dreaming //  of a little vintage camper painted black, with
white trim and a yellow door

color in the form of yarn

 















 
color in the form
of yarn
has kept me so busy
that painting
has been
slipped my mind
maybe it's color that inspires me
more than ideas
idk
but I am loving
adding the next row
on top of colors
I would never
pick on my own
but I love anyway
and the surprise I feel
when they look
perfectly
matched
hopefully I will be
less afraid
when I start back to
painting
 
also I'm looking forward
to fall
I cleaned up
my fire pit
and built a couple of fires
it was actually cool
last night
perfect for sitting
and talking
and laughing
and stoking
and just enjoying
the flames
and the warmth
 
funny how
the last of my zinnias
are as colorful
as my yarn
 
loving
spiders and their webs
reading harry potter slowly
coffee on cooler mornings
mushrooms popping up like magic
watching whole seasons on Netflix
drives in the white car
and
making plans and lists
for things to come

magic


 
 


 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
after the rain last week
 mushrooms popped up
like magic
one night was clear and
I got to see a
beautiful meteor cross the sky
then the eclipse
with the eerie light
and shadows
things I won't forget
 
I finished my goldilocks painting
and have started
my peter pan
I also got my yarn
in the mail
and started a summer harmony blanket
using the pattern and yarn packet created
oh the colors! and it's like
a puzzle to put together
which makes it
even more interesting
and fun
 
loving
thunderstorms
reading harry potter again
walking
no sugar cravings
feta cheese
cherries

here & now

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Loving // that my clothes aren't quite as tight on me as they
used to be (i have stayed off of sugar for 2 weeks)

Eating //  much healthier and kinda loving it 

Drinking //  coffee with a little cream

Feeling // behind on everything
 

Making //  hard choices all around

Thinking //   about life and the choices we all make

Dreaming // of making this this blanket

life takes over

 


 




 
life took over this week
 as it tends to do
lots of family
and things to get accomplished
memories and plans made
fighting through a sugar detox
but no art
 
loving...
rainy days
sunny days
fresh vegetables
family
morning pages
vacation plans
