The Gift Of Time . . .

rambling here, stay with me 
I went flower picking 
which means, time for flower play

flowers, paints, books
 seem to be my daily happenings of late
my art room is in the kitchen
two island drawers full
easy to pull things out 
and go at it

watercolor paint, acrylic
depends on the day
brushes, paper, canvas, pens
shattered wood pieces, flat stones

if it is not
playing with flowers 
it is 
watercolor or reading 

two reading speeds for this gal 
not reading much or constantly reading
right now

I have painted this several times
repeating a painting 
stimulates learning
for me anyway

Jeanie from 
The Marmelade Gypsy
Vista Print 
taught me how to make cards 
from my photographs and watercolor 
what fun that is 

just thought you would like to know
what I do
when I am not outdoors
mowing, plant tending, 
or picking up sticks from windy storms
after steamy, buggy weather

or when I am with “Mister Irish”
out and about
enjoying sunset rides
dinner out

he is driving, he has his own new/old car 
Life Is Good 

and of course laundry, cooking baking
visiting and coffee with friends
leg/arm exercises on flat surfaces each morning
walking as much as I can
they are a major part of my days as well

enjoy your weekend 
‘til next time

Glad all is going well for Mister Irish. And I really love your new Vistaprint card based on your painting. It's so cheerful -- it's a keeper!

I am so glad that life is good, I know the road has been a bit bumpy to get to where you are now! ❤❤

I love your cards and how you are taking time to home into your creative and artistic side! I have no such talent, trust me, I know, so I admire and cheer everyone one on, like you, who does!

Glad things are good!! Sounds like you are doing all the right, fun things..When I used to do a lot of stamping a floor to ceiling cabinet in my kitchen was designated for my stamps..Ink pads, paper, etc. was kept in a cart or two in a hall closet and got rolled into the kitchen..Great access to water and flat surfaces..Perfect..Fun to be creative..I don't do much room..We finally got rid of the 90's...Yay Have a happy Sunday..

I have the same two reading speeds. I am in a reading funk right now and have three books waiting on me!
