Woke to sun streaming into the dining room this morning. Had to grab the camera to capture it.
Glad I did, too, because it is long gone now.
The Youngest had a 'poetry reading' at school this morning. I wore my new sweater for the occasion. :)
I am so grateful I actually made it on time- the gas gage was on the big E and swinging by to fill it up nearly made me miss it!
(Oh- and is anyone else just about to pass out when they see the price of a tank right now?)
Anyway- loved seeing my little guy up front reciting his poetry. He was so loud and clear and expressive- I was so proud of him. Wishing I had remembered my camera!
So this is the little project I was working on last week- it was for a swap partner in Belgium. Hopefully you can tell it's the letter 'A'-
I had lots of fun working on this and I have to credit the Oldest with half the idea. He had been day dreaming a couple months ago about how beautiful it would be if trees could make cherries in winter- in the snow. (Heart of a poet, huh?) Anyway, I loved the idea and sketched it in my idea book and let it simmer. When I signed up for the swap (everyone creating a letter 'a') and read that my partner liked cherries, I knew just what to try. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out- happier still that I actually enjoyed creating once again.
Any bit of 'normal' is truly welcome.
And the extra benefit was that it became a catalysis for this week as I painted a birthday card for a family member. Only I'm kicking myself because I was so grateful to finish it off last night, that I forgot to take a picture before it was safely sealed away in it's envelope. Oops! Oh, well.
