I do not have anything new of my own to share today- we(the girls and I) are busy getting our plots ready to plant our garden in very soon and I haven’t really been up to much besides that and our normal happenings. (I have big, probably unrealistic hopes for this year-I want a veggie patch,a flower patch and a sunflower house for my Littles.)
My husband however, has been very busy adding to his Youtube channel so I hope you don’t mind me sharing what he has been up to. (As he has no blog of his own.)
This is one of his newest (he drew and posted it today) and one of my favorites so far, but it’s a little long(20 minutes)
You might have to scan ahead if you want to watch it but don’t want to watch the full thing.
Again, hoping that this is okay and I hope to have my own work to share come next Friday!
The night wind screeched through the trees and chilled Meg to the bone.
“He’ll be back soon, I know he will,” she thought
She tried to make herself as small as possible. If they came, it wouldn’t matter. The Beings would sense her very heartbeat no matter how still she stayed or how close to the ground she kept herself. Her stomach rumbled reminding her why Ryder had ventured out to begin with.
Was that the wind that screeched?
When The Beings want you, you can’t stay hid for long-
When The Beings see you, you are as much as gone……

Quick sketch I did this morning, I think it would make a fun painting.
Worked on this before Valentine’s day but finished it just this week.
It seems like ages since I last did a Paint Party Friday(most probably because it has been ages!) I haven’t been as productive as I would like to have been.
A sudden urge to clean absolutely everything and get caught up on laundry(our washing machine was broken for three weeks and we tried to get by washing the bare minimal at our laundromat). I couldn’t put my finger on it but I’ve been really restless and wanting everything tidy and organized I want to have a fresh start before we carry on through the year…then my daughter was telling me that the first day of Spring falls on the 20th of this month and I had to chuckle. I’m not going crazy(yet) my body was just telling me that I needed to do some Spring cleaning.
It’s not glamorous or anything but it is needed this year I have been a little lapse in keeping on top of everything. Besides the catching up I’m also trying to introduce a family rhythm- not a schedule those do not work for us! Just a loose routine to follow on certain days. I think it’ll be good for the kids especially my youngest.
Hopefully when I come out of my temporary fog I will be ready to write and paint at more regular intervals I’m just fleshing out what the best time of the day for that is as my drop everything and do this right now method was not working for me or us! I’ve set up a little office nook in a corner of our living room and am thinking of ways to make our garage more friendly place to paint.
I’ve missed Paint Party Friday and also some writing communities while I’ve been away and because I enjoy it so much and you do so much to keep me inspired I’m making it a priority to participate again sooner than later! (Starting with this submission for PPF 😉
Can’t wait to enjoy lots of wonderful artwork tonight!
