Our local Jazzercise, where I have been exercising regularly for three years, has finally introduced a 6:00am class on Tuesdays and Thursdays, starting today. I had never thought that I would actually enjoy getting sweaty by 6:15 in the morning - but I did! It was a great class, and I felt wonderful afterwards, full of energy, ready to face the day.
Back home I took a quick shower and then drove Kaefer to school. Coming home after that was so nice - the entire day (well, until 3:00pm when it is time to pick up Kaefer again) lay before me with absolutely NO appointments. Bliss. Shortly before eight, I was in my studio (aka the dining room), painting. I'm currently creating journals, getting a lot of inspiration from Jeanne Oliver's class "Creatively Made".
But it was a walk into my yard that really got me - the sun was out, it was such a bright and beautiful morning, and wherever I looked there were drops of dew. I had to grab my camera and take a few pictures.
Isn't this a yummy texture? (the armrest of my Adirondack chair)
Mr Lincoln, a present from my neighbor Mary
These are glass balls I have in one of my plant containers
My patio table - isn't that gorgeous?
I love how the sun sparkles in these little drops - no, this is not dirt!
The morning light is so warm and makes such crisps shadows
My favorite garden stake
And here is one of the journals I have been working on. It is an altered composition book with ruled pages inside. I used molding paste and acrylic ink for the birds.
Now available in my Etsy store.
So - what is your favorite time of the day?
