There was definitely a bit more creativity this week as I've been looking more toward getting inspired and accepting change.
From there, I helped Pat clear more of the debris in the yard, and this guy appeared.
Monday was our anniversary and (like all celebrations this year) was super low key. As we're starting to feel the change in the weather, we woke to a foggy morning.
I even went back to look at last month's Honey Do List from Sarajo as I had had an idea for that one before everything went sideways. So, I played with a lucite flower and some alcohol inks to see what they would do together.
For our anniversary, we ordered take-out Mexican. It was nice not to have to cook.
Zoe and I took a walk down the road to look for wildflowers. I've seen loads of big bunches along some of the main roads, and wanted to see if I could find some on my own. I lucked up.
My niece in Mobile was scheduled to get her senior portraits done Friday afternoon. Since I was the one taking her, I decided to head over and visit a little before we went to the studio.
After finding all the wildflowers on Thursday, I felt the need to do a batch of eco-dye prints and busied myself with collecting flowers while Pat worked on more tree removal.
I also busted out an art journal page that felt a little more put together since I decided to stick with a monochromatic theme.
