Almost a Mandala

I’m still working on drawing a ‘real’ mandala.

I keep getting side-tracked.  I start out with an idea for a finished product, and somewhere along the way, the design changes.  Either I change my mind, or I forget what I had planned to do.

That’s ok … one day I’ll settle down long enough to come up with a real mandala drawing.

 

 

 

It’s Fall … or Summer Extended

The calendar says it’s the first day of fall, or autumn.  The temperatures say it’s still summer.  No matter.  We can extend summer a few more weeks, I don’t mind.

Is it only me, or are the days going by faster and faster?  Is it me not managing my time and schedule efficiently, or are there less hours in a day?  I really don’t know where the time goes.  We seem to be spinning around and around and the march of time is measured by the changing seasons and schedules, and yet I don’t feel that we’ve even stayed long enough in one season, and the next one is upon us.

I’ve also realized that one of the reasons why I haven’t blogged much is because I’ve become predictable.  Just like the changing seasons, you know what I’m going to write about … the hectic and chaos of schedules, the new school year, the sports season … And yet, that is what life is all about at the moment … there’s not much going on, in between running between home, school, work, soccer games, home, school, work …

Oh, we did manage a two-week beach vacation .. yeah!!

… which didn’t stop the boys pokemon-huntingPokemon-hunting everywhere on the island … you’ve heard of this game, right?  lol

They even went riding all around the island to hit all those Poke-stops and catch those creatures …

I didn’t mind … that kept them busy, and I was left to my reading, crocheting, knitting and just plain being a beach bum .. We need that sometimes, don’t we?

 

Here’s hoping that the last quarter of the year doesn’t go so fast …

The ‘Ber Months are Here !

These days are really going too fast … It’s September  already!

I’m not done with summer yet!  I want one more day at the beach … I haven’t finished everything on the to-do list for summer … I’m not ready for cold weather again …

So I’m just going to sit down and try to slow it down a bit and doodle …

Hmmm … those lines don’t look even  … it’s going to be another freehand doodle, and maybe in the end it’ll all look even …

 

It’s an Orange Day 

You know how sometimes everything just lines up, but it’s not really coincidence?

Well, today is one of those days.  Appropriate too, I suppose, since we’re in the middle of summer now, and it’s nice, glorious sunshine outside !

What’s orange today?

I saw an orange flower …

I was wearing orange today …

A colleague is also wearing orange …

My wall calendar, composed of photos I took, shows a flaming orange sunflower …

I helped catch an orange Pokemon for hubby … a Magmar, and it’s orange …

And I’m adding the red-orange skies too, just because🙂

And how is your day?
