a very busy weekend

A very busy weekend. I baked, I gardened, I knit. There's a writer on creative process, Julia Cameron, who talks about the idea of filling up our "creative wells". Every individual has an inner supply of creative "life water" that they tap into in order to create more and more. This well has to be refilled on a regular basis in order for us to live healthy and creative lives.

I think I crammed all of these beautiful arts into this weekend because I know I'm going to have a very busy week. I'm finishing up my master's final project in architecture. That means sixteen hour days at school in the studio. (If I'm lucky.)

When I start to get low on creative energy at school I actually tap into this blog and look at some of my past entries to remind myself who I am and what I will be able to get back to when I'm done with this very busy time in my life.

Fresh bread.

And family celebrations.

spring time knitting (too mild for wool?)

The weather here in Minnesota certainly has gardeners scratching their heads and then crossing their fingers, because we can't resist sprinkling seeds and setting bulbs when the weather is so mild and welcoming.

We've experienced a warm trend here for three weeks that has hostas, peonies and crocuses popping up early. My neighbor claims that this is the earliest she's ever seen her hostas emerge. I'm ready for some green, I just hope a late season frost doesn't put a damper on our fun.

I've already set my flower pots out on our front steps: pansies, primroses and lily bulbs.

Happy spring everyone!

sending you seashells

Time away
warm breezes and sand
sunscreen and daydreams
paintbrushes and pigment
time with my husband
. . . also a little knitting.
