...and that's not all! There is a brick bed we are utilizing, as soon as we get all of the ferns out and the soil cleaned up a bit. LOTS of work still ahead.
I must say, by doing what we've done so far.....just that stuff.....has put me in an incredibly awesome mood the last two days! It is going to be a vegetarian's dream back there! The energy in the yard is different....even in the house! I cannot wait until our fourth of July party!
My excitement trickled into my art too! In addition to my doodles, I started sketching vegetables. The Things That Nourish is what I'd like to title it, if it needs a title. Simple pen sketches that just may evolve into something more.
I feel different lately. Nothing negative at all, but something has certainly shifted. I feel it both mentally and physically. I really wasn't paying too much attention to it for the first two months. March is waking me up to something special. There is a lot I'd like to accomplish this year and for the first time, I actually feel it can all happen. My social choices may have something to do with this. I've set aside more time for myself, brushed off a few draining individuals, bought a few things to improve my living conditions, and - well - the garden!
I started applying to out of state art events. Yes, I've already been rejected to a large arts and crafts festival, but so what!? It only fuels me to keep trying. My artwork will still progress and the projects I'm working on will still be finished. I have a few more I'd like to submit an application to.
I HAVE to encourage this positive shift to stick around! I should probably start meditating again to get my mind focused and prepared to deal with the incredible amount of amazing things to come. I don't want to anticipate too much, but I can't help myself!
I'll post another update this weekend. I'm planning to expand the nourish sketches and work on my Maps series prep work.
