Wednesday Already?

The week is speeding by - there's nothing really new in that, I know, but still I find myself surprised by it.  Monday was special in that two dear friends joined me in spending the day laughing and doing hand work.  Because there were visitors in the house and I was otherwise occupied, the laundry didn't get done.  Which meant that Tuesday became laundry day as well as errand day.  Fortunately, I was able to do a little sewing machine work late in the afternoon.

So here it is Wednesday and halfway through the week! There were workers scheduled for today which made it impossible for me to go to painting (since D was at an out-of-house meeting).  Unfortunately, what neither of us had realized is that next Wednesday is the Fourth of July and there is no painting scheduled.  Oh well, I'll have to work on my own. 

Tomorrow I'll be doing more sewing to try to finish a project by the end of the week.  I really have to start on one of the two next in line.  Both of them need to be completed sooner rather than later.

As far as painting?  I did do a sketch at Sunday's bonsai club meeting using Intense colored pencils, Pigma pen, and watercolor paints.  The subject was a Mugo pine that hasn't had much work done on it; it was still in a large pot.  You will notice that I changed the pot (because it was really ugly!) to a more typical bonsai pot.

It was fun, and good practice, but it will stay hidden in my sketchbook!


  1. Someday I wouldn't mind if it would leap out of your sketchbook and into my home! I think it's beautiful !!!

  2. You are such a good friend!
