A lovely rainy cloudy and coolish day! I love the cooler weather.
Today started off slow, spending time on the veranda with a tea, watching the birds and turkey. Then I filled the bird feeders and took pics of the garden and this slug who was eating an orange slice.
Next on my list was to declutter my bedroom and change it around. As I was moving my bed (which is a challenge as my room is small and there’s not much room to spare as you’re swinging it around!) the carpet lifted…quite a bit. Now it’s an old carpet that’s seen better days and I’ve been toying with taking it out and getting an area carpet. So… perfect opportunity!
I like the end result, although it echoes a little, it will be great!
Tonight’s painting was a challenge as I’m pooped from moving heavy furniture around but, if nothing else, I’m committed to this project.
My thoughts are on two towers today. A landscape, a people, a nation forever changed. From every disaster comes good. From every forest fire, new growth. From chaos comes clarity and change for the better.
So much has changed and so much hasn’t. But there is one constant and that’s love. Love will always win. Love is always the answer. Sometimes you’ve got to dig deep to find it but it’s always worth it.
On our way home from work this evening, we stopped by a nature trail near home and went for a walk. I could feel the layers of emotional baggage peel away the further into the forest we went. It was cleansing, healing and uplifting…and no sneezing!
I find it interesting I painted trees this afternoon for my painting of the day then I stop at a nature trail after work to walk through a forest…just saying. 😉
So, back to the painting. Three trees, three seasons…not sure why I didn’t add Spring…
