Day 10… Rituals, routines and reflections…

IMG_0053

It is so peaceful here and now we are having some consistency with sunny days it changes our entire experience. I have actually been seeking shade this afternoon it is so hot. My bones are warm and I love it! We have been here almost three weeks now and finally I am starting to settle in. It takes me different amounts of time depending on so many factors. The longer we are staying somewhere the longer it seems to take me to feel at home. I knew it was starting to happen yesterday once I unpacked my art studio. To…

Day 9… The on-going LOVE project!

IMG_0021

Today was the day to unpack to the Fairy Studio and it feels great! I have got 2 small Ikea wooden drawer sets, full of art materials and one large plastic box with stuff like; art paper, collage paper, journals and my paints. The other item I unpacked today was my printer. Yippeeeee!!! Last year our van just wasn’t big enough to accomodate anything like what I have with me this time, including my small craft box, sewing accessories and fabrics. I even have my sewing machine too! James set up our outdoor camping table for me to use as…

Day 8… Language barriers and challenges at the post office!

IMG_1259

Today has been one of those days when I just felt like doing nothing much at all and so I didn’t! This morning I went to my friend and neighbour’s house – Rosa. She had kindly invited me and 2 other people round for an hour of Spanish conversation… Well, seeing as one of the ladies was German with virtually no Spanish/English and the other lady was English with very little Spanish and then there was me! Lucky for us Rosa speaks enough English to enable us all to get by. But it was FUN and really helps me with…

Day 7… A new camera for me!

2015-02-17 18.33.35

Just a mini blog post today as we have been out all day retailing… Not our favourite pastime but I really wanted a camera to help me with my blog and to photograph artwork in progress. I may even do a bit of video footage of a painting from start to finish, but speed up the results… mmm ideas. But I haven’t had my own camera for well over ten years. I am not sure why. I think I rely on James’s camera but there comes a point where I just want to be independent. I have found over the…

Day 6… My love of nature, where it comes from and an inspirational film…

IMG_0677

We went for a walk this morning to explore our surroundings and we were out in nature straight away. Heaven and Bliss. We asked the Universe that our house-sit would be rural but not too remote, so guess what happened?! It’s orange and strawberry season here at the moment and the trees are dripping with oranges. We freshly squeeze them and they are so sweet and juicy. The almond (almendra) blossom is just coming out too covering the hills with pink and white. There are herbs everywhere too. The rosemary smells divine… I loved the spring season in Crete last…

Day 5… A patio with a view today… a little peek at the gardens of our current abode here in Spain…

It’s warmer outside here in our (for the next three months) Spanish house. The inside of the house, at this time of year is not warm at all. I usually do some cooking to get warm and this morning we made a big pot of vegetable soup before coming outside to have coffee in the sunshine. While inspecting the garden and pulling up the odd weed we notice lots of flowers appearing. It takes a while to get used to such a change in climate. But it does still get cold here when the sun disappears and so we need…

Day 4… So engrossed in a project today I nearly forgot to blog!

2015-02-14 15.42.46

Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope all your days are filled with love and not just today… but it’s nice to focus attention on love and have everyone else do it too! Today wonderful things are happening and I am so grateful. My friend sent me a message to say her baby had been born and I really, really LOVE this friend! I am so happy for her. Another friend’s daughter has got engaged today… mmm mmm love, love, love… more love and just when I couldn’t stop thinking about LOVE I got an email with this great free gift from…

Day 3… changing ‘challenge’ to ‘fun!’

2015-02-12 15.51.59

Since I believe thoughts and words are energy and have the power to cast spells impacting our realities I am therefore using the wrong word by calling this a blog ‘challenge!’ Nooooo!!! So, I am changing this to ’30 days of blog FUN!’ Then hopefully it will be a fun project and not feel like a challenging climb up a very steep mountain. Unfortunately today has felt exactly like that! Everything is feeling today like one of those dreams where your feet get stuck in a mysterious gloopy ground whilst being chased by the nasty monster! So, although the sun…
