Look what I did in my coffee break. (I took a looong coffee break this morning and I enjoyed every bit of it)

I have been planning to draw and paint for a long time.
Today, it was painting.
I bought some brushes and some acrylic colours and I used them on some old pots.
Here are the first two. Hopefully I'll get better at this :)

It's not finished yet, but I can brag about it nevertheless, can't I?



Mona
This must be it!
It's a beautiful day, sunny and warm and quiet. I'm sitting on my terrace, sipping coffee, listening to music and writing this post 'cause I need to share this.
I also want to share what I did yesterday.


Only the flowerpots are missing now, not for long I hope!
Oh, I almost forgot! I had a visitor yesterday evening. Here it is:

I can't wait to get to my countryside nest today!!!
I have bought some bamboo terrace furniture on sales this week and I can hardly wait to enjoy myself on the terrace.
It was on sale because it stayed in the sun and in the rain in shop's showroom, so now I need to use some sand paper on it and then varnish it. I can't wait to start work. I probably won't be able to finish it before my summer holiday starts, but I'll post pictures as soon as the job is done.
This is how they look now:

When it comes to people, they can look better in pictures than in reality. When it comes to flowers...well it doesn't always apply.

Whith all the rain and all the gray around us, this is more like what this spring sounds like:


Mona
Spring has undoubtedly come. Why isn't it here then?

I started work again yesterday. I love my work, teaching I mean, but I can hardly wait to get back in the countryside in the weekend. There's a diffrent kind of work awaiting me.

This week many things have been done in my countryside nest. In my backyard for instance...I'd better show than explain :) I can hardly recognize my backyard in the second picture.

It's been a great holiday, I've enjoyed every bit of it. I got some rest first, read a bit then worked a lot, took some great pictures and listened to some great music. What more can I ask for?

Here are some of the pictures I mentioned. I'm planning to upload some more on Flickr when I have a spare moment. Enjoy!

I hope everybody had a nice Easter time!!!
Except for the weather, everything was great. I had time to relax, read, listen to music, I even had time to play a bit with "paint". I think I might get good at this with a little practice :)

This is the first morning I really feel spring is here. I woke up with spring in my soul and this song in my ears:
