Hi again! I have people e-mailing me asking if I am ok…chances are you are wondering what has happened to me too…if you are a regular visitor. I am an elementary art teacher…and school started last week and that is pretty much the main reason why I haven’t posted since a week ago last Friday! I have been slightly overwhelmed and exhausted as well…trying to get back into the swing of things, trying to figure out new morning routines (with Savannah going to school everyday) and trying to stay ahead of everything…which I don’t think I am doing very well. But tonight as I was doing my laundry, I was noticing things I always am overlooking and I started thinking that my laundry room (in it’s sad state) is actually really interesting. Pipes on the walls, cracks in the floors, drains, clothes, rugs, rust, detergent bottles, and so many other things…some which really should be cleaned up, but I just drew it like it is…that’s the reality. Someday I would love to have a really beautiful laundry room with clean floors, walls that don’t have paint peeling off, and NO cobwebs! But for now, I will just appreciate that I *have* a laundry room with working appliances and space and that it makes a rather interesting subject for a drawing. I really wanted to draw more of the room…but I will save that for another day. I must say, I haven’t drawn for several days and taking 45 minutes to sit and draw uninterrupted was like heaven for me. I so enjoyed drawing tonight. I have to remember how much fun it is…because the last few days, in the evening, I have been so worn out that I just veg out in front of the tv for a couple of hours in the evening until I fall asleep. How I spent my night tonight made me feel so much better about myself and my life. I am so thankful I can draw.
