Life in Memphis was not what I had hoped for or planned on. Then to top it off there was a pandemic. Good thing I have my two awesome cats and really like being alone. The first year of the pandemic, I was perfectly content to hang at home. Into year two, I got a new job and moved to Maryland.
I love Maryland. I joined a couple hiking groups and met some very nice folks in the relative safety of the outdoors. I have good friends nearby and an apartment that overlooks a creek running through a park.
The pandemic is still there and as we are entering year three, even I have grown weary of limited human interaction. I’m ready to go to happy hour with the girls and have a dinner party. I’m trying to stay sane with art and crafty stuff.
I’m working on a daily art project, where I create something for a 100 days. So far I’ve made black eyed peas, zen-doodled, painted, and made marble magnets. Some of these projects have multiple steps, so I’m taking liberties and counting it if I work on the same item for multiple days. Whatever I can do to keep the creative juices flowing and the insanity at bay.
Also, as part of my 100DayProject, I’m refreshing my site and my blog. I’m back to posting my art and cooking creations here. Not for anyone else, but for me. It makes me more aware of how I’m feeling when I put my words out there and think about how this sounds from an outsider’s perspective. Doing a daily art project of some sort has such a soothing, meditative effect. It’s a great way for me to clear my head and get rid of whatever happened during the day.
