I've taken to brewing loose-leaf teas in my Bodum coffee press, lighting my morning vanilla beeswax candle and listening to Birdy while I paint. The mornings have been spent working on these 52 WEEKS pieces, currently working on no. 2, and preparing a lesson plan for my young student who will begin next week. My afternoons are spent in the studio working on the final pieces for my upcoming exhibit, and the evenings are for finalizing art program items for the library, for reading...and for watching 'Murdoch Mysteries' with my daughter while we await the next season of 'Downton Abbey' to be available to us. I really do feel blessed.
