Just a little bit about my art and life in general....

Did I do that?

This morning I woke up before anyone else and snuck out to my little studio area off my bedroom. I really does feel like sneaking because you have to duck into this very little door to get into the room. This meant I didn't have to wake up the dogs and have them wake up the rest of the house too.

As I sat at my drafting table needle felting a new pair of birds I spied a colorful painted board far under the table and propped up against the wall. It was partially buried by other things propped against it. As I bent down to investigate further what do I see but a sign I painted 2 summers ago and guess what the words on the sign were -- The Hen House. I thought this was particularly odd since I was only thinking yesterday what a great idea it would be to paint a sign with exactly those words (inspired by that flickr group). And I really did have that feeling "DID I DO THAT?" I laughed about this all morning while I worked.

I managed to get out of the house and away from the computer and my projects to do some gardening. With the kids we prepped some of the vegetable garden beds and planted some lettuce, spinach, beets, kale, and snow peas. I wandered about the yard cleaning up random things left over from last year. The lilacs are almost blossoming too!

You really had a very productive day, I guess it paid to get up so early.



I very much need to be that productive. Especially in my yard-it is starting to get out of control already this year. Glad to read about yours.
