I had a busy, love-filled Easter weekend. Very much needed after another unexpectedly difficult week. Brekky with friends, bus trips, painting, staying at Mum & Dad's, family time, canine cuddles, an early morning trip to country markets, snoozes in the backyard. Wonderful & the perfect distraction from feeling woeful. But I couldn't be happier to be tucked in bed now with my woolly socks & sketch book & pencils, listening to the rain.
I began today by walking crazy, sandy, adventurous dogs along a stormy beach with a dear friend. Watching them pounce on seaweed & frolic in the freezing cold waves made me long to enjoy something with that much enthusiasm & boundless joy. I envied them which sounds silly, I know. The sky over the beach this morning was moody & so many incredible shades of grey. I wanted to stand on the sand for hours, the wind whipping across my face, just watching the grumbling clouds unfold & give way to pale sunlight.
I'm all chocolate-ed out. I am tired in ways that feel new & uneasy. I'm quite content to sit here & let any badness from this week wash away in the rain outside.
|So much for promising myself to go easy on new plants... It lasted barely a week ;)|
|I like to call this my morning chair. I'm not entirely sure why.|
|Something so lovely about fresh flowers in the kitchen.|
|Er hum... more plants. Awaiting new potty homes. For now they are making this funny old basket, that I fell for at the markets, look pretty.|
|Bird. Letter stamps. Tiny pot. Old tin. Delightful.|
|Terribly adorable dogs. One is a porpose. One is a worm. I fell in love instantly. Please note that the only reason they are posing so perfectly for this photo was because I was eating a chip.|
|This little lass was particularly bonkers. Needless to say, we bonded.|
|The always perfect Cafe Komodo. Oh my gosh. If you haven't been, treat yourself or someone you love! Can't get enough of this place & their funky, laid-back vibe & awesome furniture. Not to mention the tasty morsels & great coffee... Love it.|
Psst... are you still here?!
Just wanted to mention that I have a big happy art post coming soon.. Hopefully even tomorrow. Thankfully, worrisome feelings have been translating into creative energy. Sorry if I've been sounding pitiful of late. I appreciate you hanging in there with me :) Gives me fuzzies.
