Did y’all think I had disappeared off the face of the earth? Nope, I’m still here…busy as a little ol’ bee these days, too.
The hubby and I both ended up with some kind of stomach virus Tuesday evening and went straight to bed when we got home from work and both of us wound up off work yesterday (couldn’t get too far from the bathroom, don’t ya know…ick!) Today we were both back at it full force and then, when we got home from work (10 1/4 hours for each of us), we did an hour and a half of yard work…mowing, raking, picking up the “stick collection” that our boys (Jasper & Juno) have been saving up at their favorite sunny spot.
Needless to say, I am POOPED!!!
Tomorrow is May 1st and it was my plan to have all my goodie envelopes addressed, filled and ready to mail but it will probably be Saturday morning before I make it to the Post Office with them since I have to work tomorrow to make up for missing Wednesday. Sorry…but I’m getting there. Life is just so full these days.
I did manage to clean up my studio a bit so I can work in there without getting claustraphobic (LOL) and have made it my daily lunch ritual to sit in the shade with my lunch, a cold Diet Mt. Dew and my Moleskine and do my Zentangles. I haven’t missed a day since starting work. It relaxes me and keeps me from feeling that I’m losing touch with my art, too.
Here are some I’ve done lately (you can click on any of them to enlarge and see them bigger)….
Can you tell how much I love doing these? It is very relaxing and calming for me and keeps me feeling good, even when things around me are stressful. Gotta love that!
Speaking of Moleskines and just great journals in general…I have found the MOST awesome site to order them from! OMG, if you love journals and who doesn’t?, you just have to check out: Journaling Arts. Cynthia’s got the best selection you’ll ever find in journals. I think I want at least one of everything she’s got! lol I am really dreaming of this one (*drools*):
Isn’t it GORGEOUS!!!
Anyway, I have paperwork to finish for work so I can get my expense check in a quickness…and we are going to eat some yummy Chinese for dinner.
I’ll try not to be gone so long this time…much love to you all.
Peace & Love,
