This week, I have only one appointment, foot care who will come to my house. I have vowed to settle in and have an artful and productive week. I did this doodle sketch of trees at lunch time in my journal. The green blue paint was already there from one of my printing sessions. I've had trees on my mind since I've been walking amongst them on my snowshoe excursions. Today's my day off, didn't even walk.

Wow, it's beginning to feel like spring even though there's still lots of snow. There was a pretty cool wind blowing when I walked earlier too. Even so, the warmth of the sun can be felt.

Everyday I've been planning to get back to some stitching but haven't made it. It's been one of those weeks with commitments and appointments. And then there is the call of the wild knowing that snow shoeing will soon be over for the season. I have had time to draw out a couple more designs onto craft foam and did test prints in my sketchbook.

I awakened this morning with a bit of dread that my day might go like yesterday. It wasn't a bad day; I just couldn't seem to relax. So, I resolved to slow down, take deep breaths and actually pause to let my body relax. I needed to get my 'self' back. I questioned what was important and what I needed to get done.

I've had a few too many appointments lately, so today's snow day was a good reason to stay home. The snow let up late morning, but our narrow driveway which runs between two houses means that although we got plowed out, my car was buried in a drift. I cancelled my physio--I'm not supposed to shovel after all-- and stayed home. I've recently been heard to complain some about being in a rut, needing a change. Well, it wasn't exactly what I'd envisioned; our car blew the turbo on our way out of town to a doctor's appointment last Friday. It was a long and stressful day. I made my appointment, just a follow up, but didn't get anything else done except drop off a quilt for a friend, and get a few things at Costco. Also, we came home with a new car! A first for us. The old Subaru Outback would have required extensive repairs, more than it was worth. We did the deal in a day and made it home by 11:00 pm. I hate driving after dark so it was a tense drive. I'm beginning to settle down, especially when I get engrossed in my art. I've done some cooking today for a friend who has had a death in the family. I did muffins and a ham and white bean soup.
