Anyway, it's all good now so here we go!
This retirement business is a blast - I highly recommend it! I've been sleeping in til 10 or so every morning and then just putzing around and doing whatever I feel like doing. What's not too like?
The weather here on the coast has been amazing. Temperatures up in the 80's and 90's most of the last couple weeks. Because its been so hot, I've spent most of my time lying around indoors. Not too energetic to say the least. We're under water restrictions here so the grass is looking pretty sad - turning brown and looking dead. I'm really hoping that this hot weather kills my weeds but I don't think that's going to happen any time soon.
I've managed to get some ICADs done. Though I jumped on that bandwagon rather late in the game, I'm having fun with them. Lets me get my creative juices working without it being a big project. As well I've managed to do several pages in my journal and I've discovered that the more I do in my journal, the more I can do. It seems to open some streams of creativity and I find it easier to complete a page.
My work room still looks like a burglar tossed it so I will need to get at that in the very near future. In some ways, since I've been working in amongst the mess, I've revisited some of my ideas for getting it organized and I've modified my plans somewhat. I can foresee a time commitment in the next few weeks so I need to get this organizing show on the road while I have a window of opportunity.
I keep threatening to post some art....here are a few pieces. Enjoy! Caio!
"Gather Life's Little Treasures is an ICAD (Index card a day).
This is a page from my journal. I had fun creating this one. I do so love Mae West!
This is a birthday card I made for my daughter.
