lazy day

There is something to be said about a cold sunny day, when you can see the shimmering bling of the icicles as they hang from the roof edge.  I have been trying to listen to the good advice from friends, “stay in, stay out of the cold, REST”, I think I’m soon going to be able to say, its been 4 weeks now! cough, cough, splutter, sneeze, wheeze and darn I’m tired.

Thanks for the great feedback on the Sludge project, thought I’d show you a sneak peek.

This is a piece of a cover that I was very taken with.  I liked it so much I kept the magazine for ages.  Doing these “Art” journals has given me a new way to display and keep the pictures I like, without keeping a whole magazine.  Eventually some time in the future, I will add to the pages.. this is the fun of it all.. there is no rush, no deadlines, just a great way to have quality time with myself doing “stuff” I like.

Enthusiasm

Enthusiasm

PL lesson for yesterday was – Act with Enthusiasm – it was something I just couldn’t get enthusiastic about, until I read further, “If you put your whole heart into whatever you do, you will be able to appreciate any task at hand.”
Hmmm – yup I could do that, my objective for the day was to do as little as possible, In the afternoon I actually took a lie down, not to sleep, but to do nothing..
I did doze, but with no telly, no phone,no PC, no radio, I soon drifted into what my mother used to call “daydreaming”
It was nice.
It was rewarding, it was calming and peaceful.
My body rested, and best of all my mind had a holiday away from news,weather and sports. If you get my drift.
My lesson yesterday. enthusiasm = being in the moment and doing it whole-heartedly =^_^=

LOL – I looked at today’s lesson, ‘Just be Yourself”  that’s me…. easy peasy.  What are your plans for today?  Are you making time for yourself during this busy time of the year?           LIFE IS ART.
