Ttiagratefulft: 21.04.19

  • My lovely Jess and her boyfriend have helped me today in the garden . This has meant so much to me as I have had little motivation and I usually love my garden . In the process of clearing and cutting we rediscovered the ‘skunk cabbage ‘ plant in the pond and disturbed the frogs .
  • We have a blackbirds nest in the ivy . I heard the baby birds . There must be quite a few of them . Intermittent bubbles of peeping ! If you stand in the garden and look up into the ribes shrub you can see mums head as she sits in the nest . Beautiful !!!
  • I was given some new pillows today . I have also bought myself some new grey bedding . This is one of life’s small pleasures x

  • Cherry Blossom . We have had a couple of beautiful days when a bright blue sky peeps through pink cherry blossom and all seems right with the world .
  • I have a little bear which has a little bee outfit . He makes me smile . Reminds me of Whinnie the Pooh and some bees.
  • Jess bought me a beautiful praying mantis made of metal and decorated with red swirls . A beautiful Mother’s Day pressie .
  • Take a look at my video on YouTube to see this picture being drawn 🎨🎬

  • The cardboard cow ! Tomorrow’s project .
  • 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 .
  • My Budgie pot !

Ttiagratefulft 6.1.19

  • 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 .

Three things I am grateful for today …3.11.18

  • 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.
