Outside my window...I hear the morning birds calling, see the garden blooming and neighbors on their morning walks.
I am thinking...that I love looking forward to each new season- I am truly ready for Autumn!
I am thankful...that school begins next week- time to get back on a real schedule!
In the kitchen...There is fresh coffee- soon there will be bagels and cream cheese.....
I am wearing...My Betty Boop pj's, a grey tank top and my glasses
I am creating...a painting of a butterfly, a portrait of a chocolate lab, a journal page for July and lots more ideas are swirling in my head......
I am going...to stay home and paint today
I am wondering...what I should paint next- too many ideas, too little time
I am reading..."What's Nest on my List" by Jill Smolinski
I am hoping...that I won't have a hard time breaking my habit of smoking in a couple of weeks
I am looking forward to...receiving the next Traveling Sketchbook- it's always like Christmas!
I am hearing...the washing machine, a kitten purring, Blue Jays and Towhees calling
Around the house...All is quiet, because I'm only one up!
I am pondering...what color the last zinnia should be in my painting......
One of my favorite things...Weekend barbecues with family and friends
A few plans for the rest of the week: I'm hosting a paint party for 10 second graders- super excited about this!, finishing my painting, hanging out with my kids, grilling with the family, and buying school supplies
Here are some pictures for thought I am sharing...
