Time off, and time to think

True, I haven't been here for awhile. I decided to take a little time off
from blogging.  I have been pretty busy with work, and found I was 
writing my blog late at night, and getting to bed excruciatingly late
as a result.  So I decided to stop for awhile and see how I felt.

I probably will be more erratic about posting for the next few months.
I want to enjoy the summer, and let my work simmer -- developing
slowly.  But I miss you, and miss talking to you -- so for me that's the
benefit in blogging, and you can expect me to connect whenever I can.

I'm working on a larger version of this, which is taking its time, and
I am fine with it moving on slowly. I guess that's what my break has
taught me. "Take your time.  All is well." That's the message from
the art gods and goddesses. I hope you are all well and healthy.

Have an enjoying your life day.

Wonderful to see you back ❣️ However much you do or don’t blog. Beautiful painting. I especially like the clouds. I like the message from the gods and goddesses 😄 🤗❣️

Thank you so much Jennifer Rose,

Yes I intend to. It is super cold here tonight, but we are promised
some warm weather soon, and I am the odd one that likes the cold. :)
Yes. Trust me I will do all the protocols, even after we get our
second vaccine.

Thank you so much Evelyn,

I missed you when I didn't blog. I don't plan to keep up the daily
posts, especially if other work is demanding, but I do love blogging,
and love going on Instagram and seeing your wonderful work.

This is lovely, yes to the message of gods & goddesses!
I will always think you are wonderful, and love your art, not matter how much or how little you blog. Taking care of yourself and enjoying life, and getting enough sleep! is of utmost importance.

Thank you so much Verna,

I will always think you are wonderful and love your art too. I am enjoying life,
and trying to get to bed a bit earlier.

You so rock.
