The weekend that was...

I did it! Well almost..... I stayed out of the art room until 7.00pm on Sunday. That is ,if you don't count the gloriously wrapped jewellery I packed up to post on the weekend; those parcels needed handmade tags, and ribbons to match, I needed more hand coloured price tags ... Um, two hours to pack five parcels.
What did I do with the extra time? A glorious long walk to one of my favourite spots. There is a granite rock (top left of bottom picture) where I like to climb up and sit and pray. The rock gives 360 degree views over Albany, and is special. I am used to going with Miss Maggie who would sit beside me head tucked under my arm happy to have her head scratched with monotonous repetition. Archer, dear man is such a busy dog that he may be banned from future visits. He chased a crow down one piece of granite - not realising that the sheer face would be too hard, and high, for him to climb back up. Of course I rescued him. He tried to drink from a rock pool and the nasty dog in the water kept looking at him.... on and on his trauma's went.
I digress, what else did I do? Sent interstate and overseas friends into shock when I returned a plethora of phone calls, and surprised my class today with marking returned in under a week.
What am I doing tonight? A hint - there are keys, cat food tin lids, shellac and rust involved.
What did you do on the weekend?

My weekend wasn't nearly as much fun as yours sounds. That peaceful spot to pray or meditate is not to be found anywhere close to where I live! I could just picture Archer barking at his own reflection in the pool!

Now I can't wait to see what you've created with cat food lids!!

Oh Julie, I so needed a laugh today and your Archer provided just the one. What a precious little boy, I can't wait to meet him. I am so pleased you had what sounded like a very stress free, centering weekend. What a blessing to be able to pray with a view like that!
Take care,
Ky

Your weekend sounds perfect Julie! I hope this weekend has been just as good.
Love the photo's - the first one looks like a very special spot for you. And what a view!!

Sounds like you did a lot of catching up with friends too :)

Archer is a funny little boy isn't he? I love him without even having met him. Lots of personality and get up and go.

Bless his little furry heart...

Last weekend I watch seals surfing on clear blue waves, mating and courting and a beautiful white-furred pup on a beach of round stones. I walked in the sunshine with the wind like silk on my skin. There is a touch of autumn and more than a whisper of winter in the air here.
Next weekend I will be mostly painting bears and watching seals and walking cats and chasing words I hope. Beautiful jewelery.
