New Years Day

I’m writing a super quick post to wish you all a Happy New Years - sending positive vibes out across the world. We’ve gotten a fresh fall of snow today. 

I’ve spent most of the afternoon in my studio cutting the end of the pieces for my rock cliff and except for a few tweaks here and there, it’s ready for the machine and some thread painting.  It’s been peaceful and I even finally feel like the prednisone and antibiotic are doing their work in my lungs -  my breathing seems to be improving. It’s been a rough couple of weeks.

As I finished up the fused collage on this piece depicting a part of the local mig’mag trail, a scalloped potato and ham which hubby helped make this morning, are baking in the oven.

As my main  has been to heal, I have not given any thought to the new year and what it might mean. I don’t generally make resolutions but I sometimes choose a word and make goals. 

I have a few goals:

Finish my most recent pieces for possible entry into a juried show.
Get my health and fitness back on track - no diets but I’ve really got to clean up my diet 
                                                                 -    Looking forward to snow shoeing again

A word I came across while reading this past week - depth- caught my interest.  Finding depth in the moment, in my studio, in my creative work. As always, it’s a work in progress to try to slow down, breathe and fully savour all the moments in my life.

Warm wishes and vibes to you!

I am rooting for you to beat this rascally upper respiratory thing. It can be exhausting as well as demoralizing. You are one strong cookie. Blessings and keep your hopes up with that positive thinking. Barbara Wise

Glad you are gradually feeling better, and are able to work longer in your studio. May you soon be out on the snowshoe trails! Blessings for 2019. :-)

Hope each day continues to bring feeling better vibes to you. Studio time is calling (sez I, who has spent several days shoveling out mine and am wanting to get it done so I can make a mess again). Happy 2019!

Baby steps are still steps. Anything to move it forward to whatever it is you want to achieve. Good luck with it all and like you, I am taken with that word depth. Okay if I steal it! All the very best to you in 2019!
