I miss seeing bright saturated colors in the January palette of gray, white, brown, and black. I miss the smells of things that are alive. So I thought I would revisit some images from last May and June throughout this post.
So now I am in a transition, finding a new rhythm as I work to keep my schoolwork, family work, library work, and artistic work in balance. Lately, I admit to being grumpy with my sweet and patient husband. It's because I have been feeling crowded out by all of the things I am trying to figure out and figure in.
While I assess the time I spend doing all of the things I do, I am going to take it as a blog assignment: who am I and what do I do in this busy life? How do I do it (all)? What do I not do? I am a mom, wife, artist, librarian and student, as a start---and each of those jobs require a different part of me. This thinking process will help inform my time structuring this spring. So stay tuned for a new theme over the next couple of weeks.
This is a good time to take stock, because on February 11th I will have my one-year blogging anniversary and a few days earlier, my 34th birthday! (Um, it's kind of sad I had to double check my math on that one.)
And oh yeah---the new computer arrived! It is amazing and I am just getting to know her. Every day it's like Christmas.
And another thing: the quilt and I have a date this Sunday. Yay!
