This will be my last post
of the shortest month
and it will be a short one too.
Where did this month go?
The days are flying by
and before we know it spring will be here.
Though spring fever has been lurking around the corners of this month
for awhile now,
we are not there yet.
Maybe that is a good thing.
Maybe our "wishes" for
should be kept deep in our pockets
and not taken out
until the time is just right.
Let Mother Nature
play out her own game.
Spoiler Alert: She will anyway!
But we are human beings after all,
so that is probably never going to happen.
I am as guilty as the next person
but every year I say
I am not going to wish time away
and then I always do.
With all that being said -
here we sit in the middle of Winter,
with Winter doing what Winter does best,
on Two, Twenty Two, Twenty Twenty Two,
on a Twos-day.
It is all a bit Two much!
Since finishing the cleaning of the library,
I have been taking advantage of it.
It is so nice to come into the computer
and not have to trip over
any and every thing
and to sit at the crafting table
and spread out.
I had ordered a couple of
paint by number small canvases
and just now have gotten started on them.
They are a folk art style,
not a lot of work and fun to do
is the result of one of them...
...this is the second one
that I still have to finish.
It is not looking very pretty to me just yet
but that always seems to be
how these paintings look
before they are finished.
It remains to be seen.
A friend recommended
a watercolor art book to me
and I ordered it
but it was no longer available
so I chose another that looked like
it might be helpful.
I have read it through
and will try the techniques used
I may be able to master
the art of watercolor.
I won't lie, it is very intimidating to me,
but I will keep trying.
I would love to learn.
I did finish the kit that I got for Christmas,
but I started taking it one step further
and adding little flowers to the wreaths.
I am using it as kind of a practice painting
and trying to perfect one
that looks somewhat reasonable.
I promised you short
and now you've got it.
Life is marching towards spring
and it is something to look forward to.
Hope you all enjoyed
a wonderful February
and are ready to see March
come in like a lion
and go out like a lamb,
or whatever that old saying is.
