A bunch of miscellaneous stuff today:
The art card project has grown and is taking flight. Once I started making the cards, the dream took shape and took on a life of its own. I am finishing up 100 cards this week in what is now a numbered series – A100-A200. I realized that I wanted to make this a dedicated and ongoing project. I didn’t want it to take over this blog because I like the direction this one is going in. So….there’s a new site…unearthedart.wordpress.com. And to think that a short time ago, I was terrified of writing on this one. All the art card information will now be posted over there, so if you are interested that’s where you need to go…see ya’ there.
Busy week here in the household. My youngest daughter’s birthday is the 10th. Our anniversary is the 11th…we had it first…31 years! You wouldn’t believe the number of people who said it wouldn’t last. There have been some rough times, but I feel confident in saying that we will make it to Thursday. My second daughter’s birthday is the 14th and mine is the beginning of next week.
We start my son’s only formal classes on Thursday (I call them “formal” because I’m not teaching and therefore, don’t get to be flexible about assignments and deadlines!)
We are down to one car and that could prove to be interesting since we live miles past nowhere.
I think the theme for the rest of the month is going to be “balance”. It’s so hard for me to give the proper attention to each aspect of my life. I get excited about the art part of my life and the household part gets neglected. I work on the house and I feel neglected. I love my family and want to take care of them, but then the concrete (practical) stuff doesn’t get done. Sometimes I feel like I just overthink things and complicate my own life. I’m my own worst enemy in that way!
But now, I must be off to….do something else. I think I need a plan. It would be easier to stay here and chat, but I mustn’t. Okay, honestly I use that word all the time – mustn’t, but when I typed it, it just looked weird so I went and looked it up to make sure it was a real word. It is!
Blessings on your day.
