Daily Draw June 16th, 2012
Another slow day. I have had to go to bed a couple of times and figure the body is doing its healing thing. I have little appetite today so enjoying salads and fruit and my husband has made a nice vegetable and red lentil curry for dinner.
I had an order in for some cookbooks but I decided they were just too ephemeral to spend money on and cancelled the order, so instead I have enquired about buying the Mandala Meditations Guidance Cards set. The shipping from Australia is expensive but I have a wedding anniversary coming up so this can be my present.
I just like the artwork and words for the deck. I very rarely feel attracted to new decks these days, and since I am on a similar healing journey to the author/artist, I think she has something for me in this set.
Among my postcard collection, I sometimes keep nice cards that people send me. This one came from my older sister.
EMBROIDERY WORK BY PEGGY BARTHOLOMEW
I was thinking of doing a bit of redwork embroidery that I uncovered when I cleaned up my dining room table. I wasn’t up to it yesterday, but we will be watching the U.S. Open golf this afternoon so I might pick it up and do some gentle stitching as I can here and there during the long broadcast.
Tree and roots reminds me of growth and the garden and nature and cycles. I just have to be patient while going through a cycle. I also think it’s a reminder not to embroider the details in the sense of over-dramatizing my current pain flare-up or getting anxious.
