Something wonderful happened...
Last week we had a day time record low, 38'F.
This week, we are having a warm record high.
It has been between 74-78'F for 3 days, sunny in the most delicious way.
It's exactly what I needed.
Some healing sun.
And, beautiful beautiful evenings.
They say it might snow on Monday.
Told ya, it's a bizarre Arizona.
But for now...
It's magical nights.
Playing in lots of clay.
Slowly, peacefully, working around the yard.
Picking up towers of cactus that froze last week.
Whilst little green tufts burst through the earth this warm week.
Wild weather times.
All the while...
Lovee is still making things.
And I am still throwing paint around like mad.
When I first started painting (11ish), I did it for my soul and well being more than anything.
I was doing what I called, painting my emotions, when I was under 16.
Throwing paint around was the most healing thing I could find as a young person.
And I just kept doing it as a way of life.
I used to paint large abstract pieces, angels too, which I sold locally.
Still painting abstracts.
Mostly because it feels so good to release emotions in mad painting.
I end up with stacks of abstract paintings I never share because I use them as therapy.
Lots of hair, and floors, and gardens, and clothes full of paint.
Sanity lives somewhere where paint meets air.
Also, enjoying a yoga mat in the garden.
Hugging the furs.
Birds birds birds.
Moon, meets clouds and plane...
A little baking...
After a warm day...
I never really knew how much I adored the sun.
These days it seems so important in my life.
Even as it sets, it leaves a mood for evening picnics...
I was inspired to bake bread...
There is little like freshly baked, homemade bread.
Hot, right out of the oven.
Such a perfect evening for a warm winter picnic...
Turtle brownies for Mister, baked in a heart cake pan...
Flicking melted milk chocolate around, like paint :)
Then we eat...
Lovely days and nights.
Such a huge nature treat...
It might snow Monday, can you believe it?
38' to 80' then back down to possible snow.
All in 2 weeks.
I don't care, I am just so happy for sun today!
I meant to be here 3 days ago, but I just couldn't peel myself out of the garden.
Back soon next time ;)
What is your current fave treat to yourself?
Hot water? Good reading? Fireplace?
ps: Random thing.
I am crrrrrazy about Michael Mcdonald.
pss: Mister Observant.
Ears move around like antennas.
Ready to find what is going on that shouldn't be.
