Got to sneak some time in with my e-course this morning.
Since Si and I decided to pretend we are living with daylight saving and get up at 5 am we have slept in till 6.30 hahahaa.
Spent a lovely morning painting cut out wooden butterflies with my friends at the Nursing Home. They lots track of their time. One of my dreams. Had three people today. They were so engrossed  in their work I got to paint a couple too. We didnt finish. More to do next week.
Stopped off at the market. I was brave and got plain yoghurt ! I am on a berry and yogurt for morning tea thingy now. I think Liza from down south had a bit to do with that. You should see her art if you think her food looks good. Bumped into a new friend. Stopped off at the art shop and got a pen that Liza had been telling me about. Dont know when or where I will use it. But with this new course it will come in handy I am sure.
I actually got some paint on some paper late in the afternoon yesterday and finished off the leafs of the journal prototype. Now for the covers.


  1. Hi beautiful Helen, I'm just catching up on some of my blog visiting and am really enjoying reading your lovely entries (o: That's so great that I've inspired you on a few levels, especially with the natural yoghurt...I'll next have to teach you how to make you're own, it's so easy and delicious. I've converted my husband Michael who never used to eat much yoghurt. Have you tried natural yoghurt with blueberries and a dash of natural maple syrup, m mmm as Flynn says (o: The work you do at the nursing home is so inspiring and must be such a special time for these folks each week, they're so lucky to have you to create pieces with and chat and have fun. Just beautiful! Keep up the gorgeous work and I look forward to reading future posts of yours more regularly. Liza xxx

  2. Oh I just found this. Thank-you Liza. I dont know the difference between the yogurts. I would like to know how to make you muesli ! Hint hint. m mmm !
