We’ve made it to the end of our 5th week in Lockdown and I’m now finding the time is just whizzing by. This gorgeous sunny weather is certainly helping to keep me motivated and positive and I hope for you too.
I like this quote “A simple smile. That’s the start of opening your heart and being compassionate to others.” – Dalai Lama
I wanted to share this quote as a smile just brightens your day.
SMILE, it really does help to lift you and others and best of all it is FREE.😊
This has been something I have been meaning to do for years and never seemed to get around to it. I decided now is a great time to start, why not. Found a free app ‘Duolingo’ which has many languages you can learn and starts at the basic. I am loving it, it is fun and addictive so a great way to learn.
I also came across an old French book I had from years ago. French in 3 months. If only…
Well, I would like to think I was naturally gifted with growing plants, but I have never really tried. Our garden was looking sad, devoid of colour and noticeable when your neighbours are flower gods and goddesses. Having unearthed a number of packets of flower seeds in a clear-out I had no excuse not to try and create new life.
I excitingly hunted out every available plant pot to sow the seeds. I did have visions of waking up the next morning to a floral scene. I have however found some green shoots. It is a start!
Can you spot how many shoots?
New Art Project
I started a new art piece for our campervan. Husband and I are currently renovating a van and we love upcycling which helps to make it unique to us. Had a piece of plywood so we decided we’d have an art piece in the van. My husband’s idea of a picture seemed a good idea at the time but has given a few little challenges.
Firstly, I had to find space in a one-bedroom bungalow for an art studio, well, not exactly a studio but room for a table. I like to imagine I have a studio. My studio ended up by the side of my bed. I know, may seem an odd place but great when I need a nap! No, really this room had the best natural light.
The second challenge was not ending up like Quasimodo the hunchback of Notre Dame leaning over a table. Husband to the rescue. I’m very lucky to have a talented husband who made an easel for me in minutes.
The last challenge for me, this art piece requires symmetry, a nightmare for me. I really don’t enjoy measuring, give me free flow anytime.
Thanks for joining me on my journey through lockdown and I hope I’ve inspired you a little. Don’t forget it’s great to share so I’d love to hear what you’ve been up to. If you have any tips on creating a garden full of flowers please let me know or share some pictures of your creations during the lockdown.
Au revoir et à la semaine prochaine.
