my apologies for performing a sudden disappearing act
although the endless wonders of the world wide web call
there is much in need of tending in the real world, too.
I have found myself more than busy lately... sorting out the new computer, getting schooling back on track, catching up with friends & creating while allowing time for grieving, preserving the last of winter's fruit and preparing the garden, as Spring has sprung early this year.
Already the fruit trees are blossoming and the seedlings are yearning to be planted out. Nature is not to be neglected if we want to see our dreams of self-sufficiency become our reality, and I have been much enjoying the fruits of last Summer's efforts (if you'll pardon the pun!)
The studio re-organisation has taken up considerably more time than anticipated, as has the new computer, but oh the joy of having working technology at my fingertips (and being able to see the wood of my cutting table) again.
The sun peers in to greet us each day and there will be picnicking in the sunshine, camping in the bush, swimming at the beach, drives in the hills and walks in the parks with friends.
ah, that magical buzz of Springtime is in the air... xo
