The blank Russian Doll waiting to be painted for the beautiful Ella
A greetings card by Gordon Close . I bought this ages ago and it is waiting to be sent . I just don’t want to let go of it because I love the style so much . I must look up this Artist . I would say 40s or 50s from the style .
I packed a box this weekend . Just one . But it is the start . I also threw out a ton of paper and cleared some drawers. I have a lot to do but I am starting with what I can achieve now . The start of a shift !
I managed to cut my dog ! I mean I trimmed her ridiculous tail ears and feathers !! She was a ridiculous mess . Trouble is … she now looks like an even more ridiculous mess but with less fuzz !!
Me …. I am actually grateful for being me ! I love how i am beginning to allow myself to take each moment as it arises and relax enough to let stuff arise . I am really becoming less anxious about what will be and more excited about just being . It’s a constant battle though . X Today I relaxed and realised I wanted to create Soup …. so I did … Spicey Parsnip and celery and tomato ( my own recipes .. made up on spot) ! I also created a less shaggy dog … and a portrait of myself I’m ok with x
This lovely affirmation from Edgar Cayce I found it while looking through my diary today . It is so beautiful . To the point entirely . “
With joy I enter into the activities of the day. Without regret I remember the events of yesterday and with confidence I look forward to tomorrow , for today my heart is without fear !”
I know I post drawings of him a lot but Spike is my muse .My beautiful bearded dragon
Mossy pebbles . There are lichen covered pebbles on the beach in Colonsay where I went recently . I took photos and have one as my screensaver on my phone . The years these plants will have taken to establish themselves on these small pebbles , on that wild beautiful beach . Makes me happy .
My vapouriser that is spewing out frankincense and lavender . lavender for relaxation and frankincense for work and concentration. I have a poster to make for my teaching course and I need to buckle down .
My new Harley Benton Guitar. It’s small and powerful and has a beautiful sound and a relaxed action. A joy to play . I now am building a set list of songs ready to perform again and they are coming in nicely .
My Sennheiser headphones .listening to Jean Michel Jarre this morning and transported.
Bonding with the featheries and scalies today . They have been having a wonderful time . Percy the Lovebird has met Nuxie the budgie and is teaching him how to fly long distances . Nuxie has met Spike the bearded dragon and did exactly what Percy did when he first met him , sat on his back and refused to get off. It’s been lovely watching them .
Luna wine from Lidl is a good full bodied red ( rather like myself x)
I am planning another trip to the Isle of Colonsay to experience open space , open hearts and open wine bottles .
