Change of Pace

As I mentioned last week, I went to visit my father this weekend. It did turn out to give me a change of pace that I needed.

I also drew again for the first time in months. It was little more than a sketch of a sketch by Renoir, but it was fun. So much fun, in fact, that I came home and went into an art store. Sooooo... now I have charcoal, paper, canvas, oil paints, a sketch pad and a huge itch to draw or paint something. And draw I will.

AND I am going to get my activities sorted out. If I keep complaining that nothing fits in, and that prevents me from doing things, it only means that I will get less done.

So.

I am going to fit everything in somehow. I'm pretty sure it will only take a bit more thought and some commitment. I'd taken a long period of rest. It's time that I got back in the saddle.

Will let you know how everything fits in.

What did you do over the weekend?

Enjoy the moment! And seize the joy--way to go and take some time for yourself and to nourish your creativity!

I just got done with a week working as a camp counselor at a girls camp in WA State with 100+ tennagers. Whoohooo! ...now I'm tired. ;)

I might put up some of my sketches, but we'll see. :-)

Oh that does sound exhausting, but amazing at the same time.
