I'm going to a cottage North of here a couple of hours. Me & Poppy!
I've never been, never seen but my friend assures me, I won't be running to an outhouse and I should be able to keep it warm with wood. ;) lol Bring it on! Apparently, I can see a lake also - paint box is packed! Fall up North in Canada!
I am excited... so excited, all I can think of pickings paint! lol
Initially, it is not painting that brought me to this vacation but stress.
Stress of up coming tests that I have agreed to have.
Talks of what I am dealing with and how to try to deal with it.
Opinions already of what might be good for me and what I can do to MY body - should in my opinion be kept to yourself. I guess everyone will say what they feel they have to, as long as people accept MY decision and back off - all should be o.k.. Sounds Simple anyhow!
& of course stuff, it is that time of year and I can't even think of it. I unfortunately do not feel like adding to the Halloween display, I need to get away.
So - I asked and thank God, I received.
I feel the best thing for me at his point would be pure peace & painting!
I do not have WiFi and no internet connection. I will have my iPad and take photos & draw so many cartoons that have been painfully waiting! I also have bear spray.
We're packed! Boxes and baskets and a suitcase and painting stuff! & all the items like food, toiletries and those things a home has.
We are going for at least one week but can stay as long as I want. I was thinking I might stay until the first week of November. Of course my son is not thrilled about me leaving, neither is Norm, and I feel bad for leaving the girls but mom needs a break. I am sure all will be fine upon my return!
I started to read yesterdays blog and realized all the mistakes - I need to take a break in every direction. Painting is what I want to do, surrounded by leaves and nature.
Time to spend some serious time with God and myself.
If I have access to a computer I might update but I doubt it! I will use my Instagram account if able again to access WiFi - Im having fun playing with the camera.
I would appreciate prayers of wisdom & good vibes to help me clarify a little this path!
Wai until you see some of the drawing - some of the most 'impact' ideas I've had in a while.
& drawing about other social issues. As soon a I get there and get settled I will draw a Laughing Buddha for being thankful for every day.
Sorry - No blogs for bit!
