“When we live in the present, joy arises for no reason. This is the happiness of consciousness that is not dependent on particular conditions. Children know this joy.”
I like that! I’m going to be child-like today!
A Big UK Truck – 5″ x 7″ Watercolor, Inktense and Ink
I love this truck! It really looked like that in Dominic’s photo on
WetCanvas. I only changed the message on the top. It had some company
name, I think. I had a great time doing this one.
I am taking the day off today. (I know! Weird, huh?) I have
scheduled several appointments in Muskogee, like a long over due eye
doctor visit. If I’m going to drive that far, I’m going to use the
whole day doing stuff I have been putting off. When you work 6 days a
week, procrastination just comes natural for all the personal stuff.
I’m even visiting the fabric store today. (big grin) I’m going to
make my husband a shirt. He’s not even scared! He’s such a brave
man. I used to sew all my own school clothes when I was a teenager. I
got store bought jeans and shoes, but I made the rest. It’s been a
while, so I am really excited! I can’t wait to dig in to that project.
I made some stuff in the 90′s with my old Singer, but I even have a new
sewing machine to play with. Yay!
