Missing My Muse

There is a part of me that would love to blame my lack of posting on the disappearance of my Muse, or maybe I could explain it as my Muse left when my husband retired and she felt her services were no longer needed among the talk and laughter and coffee drinking that goes on in a house with a happy retired couple. There may be some truth to that, my life has gotten crowded, not a bad thing, I just don't have much time for thinking...

My bowl painting has continued. 

One of the bowls I designed and painted for the
Tarrant Area Food Bank
on display at the Empty Bowls Event 2014.
More bowls from the 2014 Empty Bowls Event.  The green
bowl at the top and the striped bowls are "my" dog dishes. 
And I am still painting in the house. 

Will this madness ever end?  You make one little change,
which leads to another little change, then another, and...
I enjoy visiting with my family and friends. I get a little crazy when they tell me they follow my blog - they know what I'm doing and I have no clue what's going on in their life - they read my blog... They are too busy to tell me what they are up to.  I'm not too bitter. 

I'm still reading blogs - o.k., some days I'm so busy I just look at the pictures... Just wanted to say a word of thanks to all you clever bloggers out there. Thanks! ... And if you should spot my Muse somewhere out in this great, big world, maybe you could tell her she's welcome to come home anytime.

She is probably off gallivanting with my muse who seems to have disappeared too!

Hi dear C.J, perhaps we should organize a 'missing muse party' haha!! Enjoy your busy days dear, they are the reward for retirement, and at least YOU are the scheduler and can paint, cook, shop or just relax whenever you want.

You are fortunate your family is interested in reading your blog - very few of mine bother! Of course on the other hand sometimes perhaps it's better they don't know where you are or what you're up to!

Painting is looking good - must say I'm past doing it now with this latest hip problem and possible surgery needed soon - especially walls, so have to hire someone. Need to work on the master bedroom next year, perhaps late winter when more time will be free for such upheavals.

Enjoy each day - bet that's fun painting the bowls - you're good!
Hugs - Mary

Your bowls are so sweet! How creative......are you sure you are missing your muse? Painting is such hard work and so worth the reward when finished! Have a great week!

Hi Joy,
I'm suspicious that your muse and my muse may have packed their little bags and are gallivanting around the ether somewhere. Life takes over doesn't it. I seem to have been doing lots of nothing lately, but I think I may be back. We shall see.

Hi Joy,
your life is so full and busy. For me too it's hard to find time to blog, but I think it's OK to just do it occasionally. Your bowls are fabulous. If I see your muse she's a long way from home, either run away or on holiday!
