The summer is filled with such good weather and so many little trips that getting any serious art work done is not easy. We do have to take advantage though, both of getting outside and getting away, and the best thing, visiting with family, especially our grandson.
To go with, I'm going to do homemade crusted haddock in the little bake oven. It takes 7 minutes. Easy, peasy. We'll take our beach towels just in case the weather holds and there's time gor a swim. We coukd get thunder showers.

I am easily led astray when it comes to creative endeavours. My intention as i pondered my day this morning, was to make a dragonfly or two for my Cosmos piece which I finished binding yesterday. Something to scratch off my list of 'artwork to finish'.--lunch --some sketching to go with my tea The sketching turned into a mixed media conglomeration of ideas and a bit of a mess. Instead of simply sketching the latest blooms from my garden or beach trip inspired seashells that is my norm, I worked with symbols that evoke childhood memories. This is a bit of uncharted territory for me. It seems a good way for me right now to get some things that lurk in the back my consciousness out onto paper and eventually to fiber.

For the last few days it has been very muggy, culminating in some rain last night and earlier today. Thus, I didn't even need to venture outside to water the garden. I did go to a fundamentals yoga class around noon time and tried to stay focused on myself and my own improvements since starting my yoga at home in April. Difficult to do when the teacher tells you to close your eyes and if you do you'll fall over, lol. I've just sat down with a snack. The green is seaweed, paper thin. If you like dulse this is better, milder and less chewy. And almond milk. I'm lucky to enjoy a lot of healthy and sometimes odd foods, but believe me, I do have my junk food likes too. Popcorn and dark chocolate or most things with chocolate in it.

I've not had much progress in any fiber art. After a few years dealing with hip pain and mobility issues, you'll understand why I'm out in the yard as much as I can since my hip replacement and other surgeries. I am very mobile right now. Last week, we were at Lake Portage, totally unplugged.

Im writing a quick post as I've been busy packing to spend a couple nights with hubby at Portage Lake cabins about an hour from here towards Mount Carlton. There is no tv, wifi, radio or cell phone coverage! We will take our kayaks. I got my trout fishing licence for the first time! When one is a creator or an artist we can always keep busy. If flies or weather are bad, I'll have my knitting, my sketchbook with paints, books, a baby quilt to stitch the binding down, and my yoga mat. Hubby reads at least and he's an expert napper! I've been adfing a little color with the Neocolor II crayons to my cows piece. Alos, I cut a few pieces of fusible backed fabric to add here and there.
