march 20th seems too far away. the first day of spring. i'm really starting to crave the sun, the wind, the plants. our rosemary is still thriving and some mint is around for my soothing mint-lemon-honey tea. i'm ready to be outside taking pictures, digging in the earth, listening to the birds, running around the yard with joseph. last year's garden was really good and i expect no less this year.
and look at this great garden gnome named gus! i've wanted a gnome, especially after watching amelie for the first time...and fifty times later, still lovin' the gnome. i'm thinking he'll be my inspiration for some new doodles and art pieces. whatcha think?
as for inspiration, i'm really getting into the pottery groove on tuesday mornings. i have thoroughly enjoyed the process of throwing. this week i practiced throwing bowls...even sick they turned out okay. some are more warbles, to use ana's expression for those artistic treasures. others are to be christmas gifts filled to the brim with yummy treats.
i'm on the road to recovery after 2 weeks under the weather. and soon i'll have a post with pictures featuring the great treats that will be at joseph's 2nd birthday party! i've gotten the wooden pieces in the post today that i'll be painting and using in the goodies bags! i really get excited planning his birthday and setting all of that in motion. march 1st will be here too soon!
