No Art But Still Busy

I am back in California helping my son this week and going up to my daughter's on Sunday so I can make my doctor's appointment on Monday. Then I will visit for a week before going home. I feel like I am rushing but I've been gone so much this summer and I need a bit more time at home.

So far today I have made vegan strawberry pancakes for breakfast with fresh squeezed orange juice, done some laundry which means hanging the clothes on a line as my son doesn't like automatic dryers, mowed the back yard with a push lawnmower, done dishes by hand and tried to use the weed whacker but the battery wasn't working. This evening I took my son to a meeting for rare plant lovers and started this post while I waited for him. I am glad to be able to help him a bit while he is healing from shattering his foot. Since I don't live nearby I can't do much.

I just thought I'd share what I am up to even though it's not art!

Am I Back Yet? I Hope So.

Finally, I've gotten out a pencil and did a sketch.  I think it's been over 3 months since I've drawn anything.  I was sick and tired of not doing any drawing at all.  Not a fancy page for my journal but a bit of life.  It feels good to have laid pencil to paper again.
The only other thing I've been doing lately is knitting on a scrap afghan.  I was sick and tired of doing nothing at all so I started one.  Sometimes I get a bit down in the dumps.  I hope it's going away and I will even want to start putting color on a page!
