I’m taking a cue from a fav blog I read, The Modern Mrs. Darcy, and listing a few things that I’ve learned this month.
Botanical watercolor. I took a three week Saturday class on the subject this month.. .totalling 9 hours of instruction and painting. I learned a great appreciation for this art form! I also learned how important drawing skills are, and how important it is to practice, practice, practice daily. I know these 9 hours really helped my understanding of mixing colors and washes. Here is a page that I painted during class…
Salad for dinner. Just about every night. We seem to make a salad out of any protien and grain with a base of leafy veggies. So refreshing this time of year. Maybe its just a different way of arranging food on a plate, but I know we are enjoying many more veggies as a result. Thinking of dinner this way really opens the doors to creative alternatives.
Blog posting. I have posted almost daily for a couple months, and glad I did as I’m continuing this journal/ legacy project. But its a bit much for me and maybe for you too! I seem to be running out of things to talk about too! Its been fun, but I could use that time in the evening to focus on projects, my peoples, or perhaps nothing at all. I’m just being called to disconnnect. I’ve decided to post once a month, a look back and reflection. Of course, I reserve the right to break this habit if needed! I also hope to connect and converse with more of you as a result of fewer postings….this is the most fun part of blogging for me.
Here are a few pics to finish up July. We had the twins for 4 days over the weekend, and kept them busy!
Tailgating with all our Littles
We visited Matthei Botanical Gardens with them over the weekend
It was a hot and humid day, we all felt a little prickly.
Bad pic, but that prickly face just had to be posted…
Also boated on the Detroit River…fun was had by all
Looking forward to August adventures.
ENJOY XOXO 😗
