Looking Forward

West Indies
Partially finished red nude

She flew in one day

Ahhhh - finally spring around the corner
nice day to sunbathe
Life is event-full lately. Finally tonight taking a breather - having to watch being easily exhausted and remember to calm down. Hildegard Von Bingen is singing on my computer and is soothing - I'm in bed with new canvas to start - my paint supplies arrived - twelve 16" x 20" canvases, cerulean blue (boy I hadn't realized how expensive paints were now.
I spent two hours at Barnes and Noble Friday night reading "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks" by Rebecca Sckloot, one of the most fascinating books I've read.
Then we went to Alice in Wonderland 3D - it was great - Depp at his Mad Hatter best. The tea party was mad and delightful. Alice's costumery was stunning as was Depp's makeup! I want to see it again!
Passport arrived on time, I have tickets and the trip to West Indies is on! I've 3/4 packed even though its five weeks away. I need it. I feel emotionally drained. Being close to the equater will be refreshing, refilling, on top of a volcano in the clouds will be soul restoring. I plan to get enough pictures to paint for a long time.
A new week has started - though tomorrow is Tuesday - haven't had time much to Farm - and TV has been cut down 85%! I wonder through the house playing either worship music or Bingen or Forbidden Songs about My Bonne Island by Tom Kenyon - - - watching grandson a lot, planning a trip to my other daughter's on payday - and ready to dig in the warming dirt outside.
And I'm counting down the days.

I AM SOOOOOO JEALOUS! What a great trip you will have. R&R is a much needed thing in peoples lives, hectic or not. It is rainy and cold here, and the wind is blowing like's freezing since it blows across the bay, it was 33 degrees last night and is about 46 right now, outside, it's 58 inside so i turned on the pellet stove got on 2 pairs of socks, a long underwear shirt a tee shirt and a sweatshirt. Days like this make me think i will never be warm again.But at least it hasn't snowed! I hope you will take so many pictures and post them of your warm and sunny vacation.

I love your red nude! Looking forward to seeing the finished product, if you are willing to share.

I would really like to see the Alice movie, too. Depp is an awesome actor and I am a big fan of the original story.

You're outside without socks!!! WOW! I can't wait to do that in London!
And you know that in my village we say that ladybirds bring lots of luck?
