With only 6 more class meetings to go until summer break–this instructor is chomping at the BIT for it to get here! The bizarre weather of the weekend hardly promises warm days around the corner, but still I hope and wait.
This weekend seemed particularly long; maybe because I was in MN last weekend and it was jam packed with things to do and people to see. None the less I still fully enjoyed what felt like a longer weekend than normal. Friday my husband and I went out to dinner and then had a few drinks at a local wine shop. Saturday we worked in the yard, lounged around, and then met up with some friends for dinner and drinks. Sunday we attended a couple’s baby shower and then had to do some weekend chores such as house cleaning, grocery shopping, laundry, and the like.
But, what was unique about this weekend is the amount of painting I completed. I completed a total of 3 paintings throughout the past 3 days. My artistic juices were flowing! Often times painting is a therapeutic outlet for me. My husband has video games, and I have painting, meditation, and blogging. Based off a few things that occurred this weekend, I can see why I needed extra “art therapy” these past few days. As one married person to another married person knows, marriage is tough! When people warn you about, they are not kidding. Even after having been with my husband for 7 years before we wed the aspect of marriage can still be challenging. Not to say that it isn’t worthwhile and amazing as well, but it certainly has its moments. And although those “moments” aren’t always particularly enjoyable, they at least fuel some creativity for me when they occur!
