What I did today

Today was a wonderful day here. One of those days when you just “have” to play hooky from the office. Now for me, that means my commute doesn’t change since I work from home, but my mindset does! The promise of temps in the upper 70’s today and sunshine with soft breezes was a temptation I couldn’t resist.

First I finished off the dyed yarn I started yesterday.

Hand Dyed Chenille Yarn

And then I had to take some pictures of the tulips I didn’t know I had! They were a pleasant surprise as tulips seem to disappear here from one year to the next. One particular tulip intrigued me, I think that has too many petals to even be called a double!

This was coming up in this bunch under the Bradford Pear tree:

So I had to pull out my watercolor pencils and a chair and sit down and do a small painting in my watercolor journal:

I really like the way my trees are beginning to take shape! But unfortunately, I can’t play hooky from the paperwork all day, so it’s back to the office for me!

Bye for now!
