Although, if you ask me, it showed up weeks ago!
We're still having amazing weather. Temperatures have been in the high 70's for the past week and a half.
I'M LOVING IT! Being in this part of the country, we could be seeing "the white stuff" well into April. Instead, we have Trees in full bloom, and Spring flowers. It's wonderful!
Along with the amazing weather, comes Thunderstorms!... anyone who knows me, knows how I love a good Thunderstorm. Nothing dangerous of course, just watching the Grey clouds roll in, and the wonderful sound of Thunder rumbling. I was woke up by a Thunderstorm last week. It was heaven.
This past Sunday, we had a little storm. I couldn't resist snapping some cloud picks to go with the other million cloud pics I have (and I wonder why my computer runs so slow?) ... anyway.. I captured a wonderful
"heart cloud"... I took it as a message directly from God... to me (smile).
It's already Wednesday, the weeks fly. It seems like it was just Thanksgiving! I just hope Spring and Summer take their sweet old time and stick around.
I spent the weekend making jewelry. I flip flop between stopping, then find myself in the bead isle of my favorite craft store Pat Catans... just "buying a few new beads." My hairstylist, told me that the other hairstylists were asking for more jewelry. I had taken some there last year and they really liked it, and bought quite a lot. So I was flattered they're asking for more.
After my friend Teri was here last year, I learned to work distraction free. Wow!.... I'm easily distracted, and realized I was causing these distractions. Having the TV on, eating, being on the computer etc... all distracting my creative process. I'd spend more time checking my email, and changing channels.. and wonder why I'd have nothing done.
I turned on the "Seascapes" music channel... wow.... what a difference! Just this wonderful "background" calming and relaxing. Allowing me to actually focus on my art. Okay, I did check the email a few times..(old habits die hard)... but quickly went back to my art. I actually got several pieces DONE!
I'll post pics of the jewelry next time.
I really shouldn't be up right now... this is my "bedtime".. 2: 45 a.m... really. I'm lucky that I don't start work till 10 a.m... and can afford to stay up late.
