I came home from the store the other day with a new orchid.
I do so love to have a blooming orchid on my kitchen table, but seeing how I am incapable of getting them to rebloom it has been a long time since I’ve had one. I decided to remedy that with $15 and an impulse buy at Costco. Much easier than monitoring humidity, seasonal temperatures etc. etc.
Yesterday I sat down with a scrap piece of watercolor paper and my little box of paints and painted.
It wasn’t long until I had company.
We all felt so happy– it’s so easy for me to forget that I love to paint and that I don’t need total solitude to do it. My kids LOVE to sit and watch me. They love to paint along side of me.
It’s a habit I need to create.
