more glimpses of my neighborhood as seen through the eyes of my iphone. i can’t remember the last time i took a proper photo with a real camera. convenience wins out every time.
i am taking special pleasure in filling up the 3×5 pages in my little moleskine watercolor sketchbook. if you suffering from an art blockage i highly recommend a tiny sketchbook to get you moving again. it’s working wonders for me. even if painting isn’t your thing you could collage or write or do anything on the tiny pages.
i roasted a butternut squash today and ate it with salt and pepper and some plain almond yogurt. v.v. tasty. if you have dairy intolerance whole foods carries cashew, coconut, and almond yogurt. all quite fine i think. if i’ve roasted a butternut squash before i can’t remember, but i’ll be doing it more often.
let’s see, what other pictures did i make this week?
more objects from my desk, including the cats which were from some tiny stickers i spied when i cast my eyes about for something to paint.
i finished listening to eleanor oliphant is completely fine. i’ll miss hearing about eleanor’s trevails each night while i sit at my art desk. now to find another book. hmmmmm… this is never as easy as one hopes it will be. in the meantime i’m reading a book book. as in an actual book. the kind with words you have to read.
susan branch mentioned von arnim’s book in one of her lovely posts a while back and i made a note of it. if you click on the book below it will take you to an article which mentions a downton abbey connection!
meanwhile back in the neighborhood…put your walkers on we’re going for a stroll.
what a nice little porch this is, dontcha think?
up up up we go. i’ll give you a push if you can’t make it up this hill. i may need one myself!
we’ve gone the whole winter with only 1 real rain, but a bit more may be headed our way this week. i am desperately wanting to hear the patter of raindrops on my porch awning sometime soon.
also getting excited thinking about my week long adventure to northern california.
it’s been a long school year and it’s not over yet, but the little breaks go a long way to keeping me sane. knowing there’s an escape on the horizon. sometimes i wonder how retirement will be without anything to escape from. hmmmm…
