.......this time I think I am winning, but it isn't over yet.
Yesterday was the longest day of the year. Did you notice? I didn't. Today will be about 3 seconds longer. I won't notice that either. It is sunny this morning, and the day should be warming.
A dear young friend, Kayley, weeded my flower garden, and finally I can see the flowers that were hidden. It makes me mad at myself when I can't even weed a little. When I feel up to it, I've done a little whipper-snippering, managing about 10 minutes at a time, but that is better than nothing. I have to stop expecting myself to be able to do what I want to, at least, at one time. You would think I would learn after 20+ years.
I guess when I was younger I could get through days much better than now. It is hard to accept that, and the fact that I sometimes have to ask for help, or accept it when offered.
....It's another day, and I am feeling somewhat better, though the day is young. I wonder what I will accomplish today. I have finally made an inventory of the books on my shelf, and the ones that I have put in the church library. My oh my. I would like to go back and read them all again. I am thinking that I will put the ones I have here in the library as well, so that others will enjoy them, too. First though, I have to card them, so it will be a while before they get settled on the church shelves.
In the comments, some have asked about patterns for the felted creatures I make. I do not use patterns, but there are many places on the internet of needle and wet felting. I usually start with the head and body and then the imagination kicks in and then a bear or a cat or whatever appears. There are lots of books and sites that teach about felting, and I look at some felted things on line, but mostly I just do my own thing.
Sometimes I just use small bits of wool and just make little balls.
They are good for cat toys.
My latest paintings. hj says the one on the right is a bit scary.
I'm wondering if people would want these sort of paintings?
They are definitely weird, but I was thinking of giving some to the
Children's Wish Foundation. A friend is very involved in this group, and
is planing a fundraiser.
I think that I am going to post this now. It is a start, and means that I am on the way back from my stay with Lady Gloom. I visit her quite often, but I never want to stay too long. Sometimes she is a comfort, but she lives in a very dark room, and eventually I need to see the light. Thanks to Heather and Dawn for opening the door.
I am hoping that Barney and Belinda will get going again soon.
