Crazy Busy

Before my mom died I was feeling stressed by deadlines;
I wrote this at that time and it is even more true today…
but I am no longer worried about her.

I’m glad we took the extra time down over New Year’s;
It was worth it to fully recover from one of the hardest years yet.

Oddly, I think our Christmas cactus knows we need his cheer and he is still blooming — now about 45 days of blooms!  When we walk into the lobby we are greeted by swirling color and cheer, between the Monterey pieces and the horses and the colorful cactus.
*sorry i only had time for a line drawing, but, you know, deadlines!
he deserves a glorious watercolor!*

Journaling saves me, even if it is a quick drawing at the end of the day
to think about what has transpired and draw a little.

    Journaling saves me too — even if my daily notes aren’t a fraction as lovely as yours. I’m glad these little observations are reminding you of happy moments in spite of your difficult year … and I hope the year ahead will be better, and even brighter.


I love hearing from visitors!
