I returned from Florida Tuesday night, and went straight back to work on Wednesday mornin’! Right back into the action. I think I’m still a tiny bit messed up from the slight time change, but I did manage to get my butt out of bed at a decent hour today. The trip was really fantastic, and it was great to spend time with my family! I only get to see them about twice a year, so its always nice to see their faces again.
So I’m back, and I’m feeling re-booted, and ready to go. It’s kind of a funny thing when you don’t have to worry about a single thing for about 8 days, then you come back home and instantly all the things you need to do, or think about come running right back into your brain. I was a little overwhelmed last night, and extremely tired (not used to working yet…haa!). I guess I was gone long enough for that strange thing to happen when your apartment looks slightly different to you than it did when you left. I love that feeling….I think its a good thing!
The entire trip home I kept thinking about what I want to accomplish this fall, and I sure did think of many things I would like to do. My first goal is to get up earlier! Since I’ll be working more from now on, but usually starting at noon, its easy to get into the habit of sleeping in til 9 or later! This just won’t work for me! I have too many things to do. I’ve decided to get up on time, around 7, or even 6:30 so I can squeeze in some time for sketching, which is the other goal I have in mind. I plan to do ALOT more sketching. Sketching just about anything! My goal is to fill my little sketchbook by the end of September. The more you sketch, the more ideas start flowing. The extra bonus is that you begin refine, and re-define your drawing skills! It’s a win win situation!
I have many other goals that include taking classes at my former University, taking up pottery, getting on top of my money situation, and getting on top of my health! There are also many books I want to read…..annnd I’m teaching two craft classes from November to December!
Anyhow, fall is a good time and it’s already here! The weather in Halifax is chilly!! Quite a shock when I got off the plane from Florida! Here are some sketches I drew sitting at the Florida airport (we were delayed a tad). Enjoy!
