I’ve made a new goal of writing here a little more frequently, so here goes!
The spring and summer seasons have been amazing this year. We are halfway into summer (sob!) and it has been a wonderful one. The gardens are doing well (despite the little moisture we are having), and we have been eating a variety of veggies already! There has been a good balance of family/fun/work/play, and of goal-setting and project-starting; all things that keep me happy and vibrant feeling!
I’ve been taking the time to ride my bike a fair bit. I love bike riding. It makes me feel free! I’ve also been doing other fun things (mostly because I have a child, but also because it’s just fun to have fun). We’ve flown kites, played skipping games, gone on long river valley bike rides and nature walks, and hung out at playgrounds. One day my child will be grown up and I might not do those things as often (sob!). Nah… I’m still going to them.
Lately I’ve been setting aside time to do a little writing. I try to do a little each day. Some days are better than others, but all writing sessions are good. It’s a time that I look forward to, and it’s usually late at night during those hours when the house is still and the magpies are asleep, and I usually wake up early (thanks to the magpies), so I usually have to find time for a nap, which is another thing I love about summer – siestas! I would like to write at least a song a month. I think that isn’t too lofty of a goal.
Today I posted my 26th video in the challenge I started in the early new year of posting a video to YouTube each week, and writing about the process in each video’s description. I can’t believe that I’m halfway there!! When I began the challenge, I was apprehensive and nervous, and I thought I might be becoming a little more crazy than usual. But halfway into it, I’m grateful that I pushed myself, and I really look forward to Tuesdays, which is the day I use to record and edit the videos. The challenge has been so good for me in so many ways! I’ve learned so much about technology, artistry, and myself as a person. If you like, you can follow the challenge here. This is the video for Week #26:
Well, I’ll sign off for now, but I will see you soon!
Thanks for stopping by!
