It's been a while since you've seen a mid-week post from me.....I know!!!.........I'm excited, too! I have an unexpected week off from school - first round of assessments are done, I went for my interview yesterday and I'm all up to date, so I don't have to go back until we start on assessment 2 projects next Monday. I am officially 1/6 of the way through the Diploma! Yay for me :)
I told myself I would dedicate this week to getting the bulk of my current book written and I will, I will, but I couldn't help doing a little diversion drawing before I got started.
I've dashed this out, the shading is a bit questionable and the centre should be white.....but here it is - a tuesday drawing! I'm just thrilled to be able to even write that!!
Here's the problem, though - now that I've had a bit of a play I want to keep going with it - I don't have enough time to just draw lately - I spend so much time staring at my computer screen I think my husband is actually jealous of it. He really prefers that I stare at him all stalker-like instead. hahaha. Anyway, I'll just have to do a quick couple of sketches in my journal and hope that I remember to develop them further later.
On the farm, Miss Jersey is due in approx 2 weeks. She's looking all big and moody. I can't wait until we've got fresh milk, and cream, and butter again! Spring seems to have arrived early- we've had some stunning days and today I have my windows fully open just enjoying how great that is!
Last week my son moved out of home - a big milestone for John and I, though Ben has moved out (and in) a few times, as have the other kids.......this is the first time in 27 years that we have no children at home and John and I are living along! I know it probably won't last, but I've got to say - I'm loving it!
So, in a nutshell, things are going along pretty great around here - I hope you guys are having a fabulous week, too!!
