Ugghh!!! The Rain! The rain. I remember this. I was just thinking about how bearable winter has been this year and that maybe I am actually enjoying it, and then someone threw this thick blanket over the sun. I'm like one of those birds who falls asleep as soon as the cage is covered. But I've already made garden plans!
Yesterday was a pile of nothingness, but today I'm hyyyypppppeeedd about making a birthday cake. I mean, look at that Pusheen up there. Look at those pastel rainbow fondant stars. I'm hyped just looking at it.
I also painted a thing last night, in a single sitting. It happens. Come to think of it, this is pretty productive of me for such a dark "weekend". There's something about January that gets me buzzing every year. From the listing page: Embrace gratitude for all the shiny things in your life. And if you don't have a shiny thing, maybe it's time you treated yourself?
This watercolour painting "Bounty" is available here. Our dollar is dropping ever lower, so get it while it's good and low!
I love those moments where you think to yourself - how can I bottle this feeling? I had a destress day: I wrote some morning pages, took a bath with some Lush products, and went to bed early. We had our snuggly winter blanket set out and the window was open just enough to hear the rain. Total peace. It feels weird, but great to have quiet thoughts.
