Library day: "Do your own thing"

 It's been a year since we've enjoyed a day at the library creating art and enjoying friends.  I spent yesterday gelli printing on fabric.  Last night I worked one of my flowers into a collage that I was feeling a little stuck. I'm not totally happy with it yet, but setting it aside for inspiration at a later date is perfectly acceptable.

 I listened to the suggestion to turn off the internet and go look for fresh inspiration.  I was at Hobby Lobby this morning and took an extra 5 minutes to just look for pattern and colour combinations that caught my eye.  Fun and satisfying!!!

A 3 day "vacation"

 After getting results from 2 weeks with a heart monitor,  I find myself in the hospital to monitor a new drug. It's only 3 days, but I find myself ready to return home after 2. 

A bright spot during this visit is the lovely flowers that were delivered.  Thank goodness for caring friends!

 I went outside early this morning to check on blooms (before the rain began).  I imagine that the buds will change to full blooms in a few days after the all day rain we had today.  There is at least 4 inches in a bucket that I left outside, and more rain is coming!
