On Friday, I did a little more work on the (apparently) never-ending mural at Unity of the Valley:
|Baby bear looks to see what mama's watching
|From way over in the forest, they're observing the race between the tortoise and the hare. (Scroll through older posts, if you want to see more of this ongoing mural project)
|A mural full of playful animals wouldn't be complete without otters!
|These two hang out with a pair of playful dolphins. I think a squid is next.
|Walking out to the pool, I looked to the right, to see this beautifully designed waterfall, which levels out for a few feet before the pool, creating a birdbath easily viewed from the screen porch.
|My inner three year old went straight for the big rocks, placed at the perfect distance for hopping across the pool. To my surprise, I realized there were stairs down into the water to my left! This could only mean...
On Sunday, I meant to work on the cover art for 365 Being, but I had new colored pencils to test, and oil pastels to try, neither of which I have used since high school, so mostly I ignored both work and housekeeping, and just had fun:
So that was my weekend: some work, some play, some spirit time. The best part? You might have noticed...they're all pretty much the same. Do I know how amazingly fortunate I am? You betcha! Do I wish this kind of contentment for every one of you? To the bottom of my bottomless heart, I do!
