Taking Time...


I am taking a bit of a blogging break
And am going to be busy not doing housework
Or trying to tame the jungle that the garden has become
Or tackling the dust bunnies who are trying to take over our floor
I won't even try to catch the tumble weeds that waft cross the dining room on every breeze
and I definitely won't be playing the part of domestic goddess
in any way, shape or form
But I will be indulging in a week or two of benign neglect of all family members


 I will be attempting to catch up...or more accurately... start
on The Documented Life Project
now that I have my diary thingy
and have the cover decorated and the extra pages added and all that


I may just head off and enjoy a bit of time at my favourite beach
where chocolate will be consumed in copious amounts
tea will be drunk and there may even be a bit of glug glug woohoo
And I will be teasing the poor mutt who had a little operation the other day 
and now has part of his snout shaved and part of around the opposite eye
It looks so fabulously mad that I really need the time to enjoy the full comedic possibilities
And I will draw and paint like crazy
Especially this new teapot and cups... They will be drawn over and over I think


Because how could I not draw and paint something so glorious
And I am going to sleep... All I do at the moment is sleep
Bloody chemo is still wreaking havoc so I am going to take time out to rest up and gather my energy for a full on onslaught of creative madness that is to come...
See you all soon and happy painting all...xx

That sounds like a perfect plan! Sometimes, a little break from it all is all that is needed to fully recharge the batteries. Have a wonderful time, enjoy the beach and the chocolate and the tea. And the painting of course. What a gorgeous teapot and cups!

It sounds like a wonderful way to rest and recuperate Tracey. We'll miss your funny blog posts and wonderful artwork but if it means you come back to us recovered and rejuvenated then so much the better. By the way after doing my reiki stage 2 I can send distance reiki now so if you're open to it let me know and I'll be happy to send some love and light from the cosmos your way. Xx

Enjoy your break and all the havoc it reaps! Love the tea pot and cups. Hope the radio therapy is not "cooking you alive: as my dear friend once described it. Love and hugs from Africa

Jez said...

But with the lack of your housewifely input, you can point out just how much work you struggled through in your daily chores back in the days.
Beautiful teapot and cups, and georgeous painting of them. Have a good good good holiday break, and sweet dreams while you sleep. XX

kat said...

Have a wonderful, peaceful & restorative time. You bloody well deserve it dear lady. I don't know how you have managed to continue to (more or less)keep up with the happenings of blogland and with a cheery grin (or was that grimace) on yer wee mush and always a loving word. Enjoy getting painty & playing with inky stuff.
Just dinna get sand where it'll cause a rash ;)
Love n hugs :o) Mo x

Faye said...

Love you, Tracey. I hope you are getting your spirits and your body restored bit by bit. Your teapot set is so gorgeous. I love the bright colors. Take care and rest.

Alicia C said...

lovely teapot and lovely post as usual! I do hope copious chocolate can make up for the maddening infuriating indignities of illness! I love the text incorporated in this and a few previous posts. You are the best!

Sherrie Roberts said...

I wish I could join you. Just say the heck with it all and just do as I please and sleep. My illness of course has nothing to do with Chemo. I just tire easily now. So, frustrating! Hope you the Pet and the TeaPot and Cups have a great deal of fun.
Watch out for the Hornets-- Take a big Brimmed Hat, and Four inch extra long brush to protect yourself.

All His Prayers.

How you always manage to perfectly match the colors from the objects to your drawings is astounding! You're going on your bloggy break just as I'm returning from mine. The downtime is fantastic -- enjoy! Just come back, OK?
