Goodmorning lovely ones.
On this grey and rainy morning I choose a lovely Autumn photo (made by my friend Lena Schreijenberg) to write a haiku with.
Zachtjes, vrij van gedachten
alleen maar lopen
|Early morning walk
gently, without any thoughts
only my feet move
I submit this haiku to Recuerda Mi Corazon where our lovely hostess Rebecca brings us all together to share a haiku on Friday: Haiku my Heart.
I just put our big plant (“Areca palm”) on the balcony so it can take a shower and lo and behold, it stopped raining… I could have known that! However, I bet that when I go outside to do the grocery shopping, it will downpour again. I think I’ll decide to stay inside, spend the day in my atelier and bake an egg for dinner 😉
I’m a few weeks behind in keeping my Chronicles art journal spreads going but last week I created two spreads and it won’t be long until I am up to date with these pages again. I only show you the spread I made for week 38 ’cause I have a card to show you too, and I don’t want to make this blogpost too long.
The Chronicles of Marit 2019 – Week 38
He: “that portrait on your desk, is that you in 10 years?”
Me: “No, that’s me right now.”
He: “Oh no sweetie, no way! You don’t look that old and tired at all!”
Me: “Awe, thank you hon. Luv ya!”
I may hate my wrinkles and eyebags when I look in the mirror (luckely, my beloved is right; it isn’t thàt bad) but I DO enjoy DRAWING wrinkles and eyebags!
On to something more colorful and youthfull then… my little (10 years old) big friend Dana had surgery and I made her this card to cheer her up.
That’s it for today, the sun is peeking through the clouds so I may do the grocery shopping after all…
One last thing:
Did you see I teach a workshop in Middelburg on November 16th? There’s still a few places available. Click the link in the side menu for more info.
Thanks for stopping by today, have a nice weekend.
