It is again Wednesday and again a beautiful Autumn morning (almost like Summer even, as it is going to be 25 degrees Celcius – (77 Fahrenheit.)
I will take advantage of it by going for a bike ride to the seashore and take a long walk over the dunes and along the beach. But before I step on my bike, I have some photos to show you. To begin with my workdesk and how it looks this morning.
(“why a picture of your desk” you may ask? That’s because of Julia from Stamping Ground and her ‘What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday” series. Click the link to find out all about woyww and join the fun!)
My atelier is at the front of the appartment – on the North-West side which means the light is ideal to work by – but there’s something interesting happening on the back of the appartment too these days (the sunny, South-East balcony-side) which I want to show you.

Some time ago, a turtle dove decided to build her nest at the small plateau behind the drainpipe that runs down between the balcony and our bedroom window. Mama dove spend weeks breeding on two eggs and when the little doves came out, we had a nice view on mum and her babies. The little ones grew fast and one of them ventured it this week to fly to the tree on the other side. But little brother isn’t that bold…
So there it sits… building courage…
Mum took position in the tree on the other side, luring him by making all kinds of sounds and trying to persuade her baby to take the leap, but he does not dare… yet.
It won’t take long though, because little dove is flapping its wings already… does it feel the wind beneath?
I suspect he’ll take the plunge today!
When you’ve looked closely to the desk photo, you saw my finished art journals lined up on the window sill (they will be stored on shelves eventually…) and I added yet another one to the line of finished journals. I created the last page in my ‘miscellaneous’ art journal. Here’s how the last page looks… (on the right you see part of the inside of the back cover, where a big image was glued when I bound this journal)
… and now it’s time to get on my bike, flap my wings and take off to the beach… hope your day is a good one too. Take a leap and go do something nice today!
