Good Morning -
It is Sunday and I do not know where the week has gone. I have been trying lately to keep better track of my TIME. I have always been one that just doesn't have any concept of what Time it is, I get lost in the day or what I am doing. Maybe it's because I focus so hard on what I am doing at the Time and I have many things going at once. Sometimes I wonder how I raised 6 children, although I have been known to forget one here and there. My children have good laughs over some of the stories they tell and I just cringe. I don't think they have been scarred to deeply. I have been thinking lately of journaling some of my experiences and thoughts and art and capturing Time... but again there is that Time element.
So I made some, for someone else to put their thoughts down or maybe just give as a gift. If I keep making them maybe one will entice me to start... who knows.
I bought some composition books at Office Max and covered the inside cover with old music sheets and old book pages. I did put pockets on the inside cover with various paper and fabric. I glued it with PVA (bookbinders glue) that I ordered from Dick Blicks. It cuts down on the curling or bending of the cardboard. Then I wrapped it in fabric, in this case with old burlap and embellished the front at will using things I had in the studio.
I had to cut some of my Peonies and bring them into the shop. They fade so quickly and I needed some color with these rainy days we have been having.
My Peony bushes aren't blooming yet but my Peony tree is always early. This year I didn't get as many blooms as last year.
As long as I am on the subject of flowers, I will show you my French lilacs that bloomed earlier. They are long gone now but the fragrance remains in my memory...
I have a hard Time cutting lilacs, they always wilt - no matter what I do... smash the ends, put them in warm water as I am cutting them, even putting sugar in the water doesn't seem to help. Is it the variety???
We have a new family member... meet Oliver.
We rescued him from a shelter in Chicago, we thought Jesse needed a companion. I know it is little boys and puppy dog tails but we are not around enough to raise a puppy now. Cats are a little more independent... Maybe another Time.
We had a Siamese for 18 years, we lost Alex last year. So of course another Siamese tugged at our heart strings.
Siamese cats are very verbal... this one is no exception! If you are not used to a cat that talks constantly... a Siamese is not for you.
It will take a little getting used to again... and it will take Time for Oliver to get used to us. He is 4 years old and his owners had to give him up because of allergies. Poor kitty. He will be loved here.
Well, I better get back to work... I have spent enough Time here and I am running out of Time. If you haven't signed up for my Collage Giveaway please do so, it ends May 20. Just click on my sidebar button for the post.
You don't want to run out of TIME!
Many blessings to you this wonderful Sunday and please take the TIME to leave a comment :)
