Happy New (school) Year!


The beginning of the school year feels to me more like a new year than January 1st.  Without the resolutions and goal setting and navel gazing which is tradition in my January world! My August new year is more about getting on with stuff, more starting, less thinking.

Even though I am now working part time at the library which is new from last year, I still make my plans. So far they have included – read my magazine stack, paint the gladioli I just bought from Trader Joes (especially to paint and draw!), go to the Art Museum to gather inspiration, watch classes at Creative Bug and Skillshare as well as all of the art journaling.

So far I can report that the boys have been back at school for two days and my magazines are still in a stack and the gladioli are beautiful and full of flowers but unpainted, I have been nowhere and watched nothing!

However I have had a very nice couple of days getting back into the routine and wishing the weather would cool down just a little bit.


Do you plan all the things for back to school time?  Or do you prefer the traditional new year goal setting?  Whichever it is, I hope you are getting stuff done!!

Happy Wednesday x
