A Birthday and More Zendalas WIP

My firstborn child turns 30 today. Where in heavens did the years go? She is now a grown woman with two little women of her own. P is 7 and M is 2 1/2 and I am sure she is already asking where the years have gone. I am taking her and the little one out for lunch today (the 7 year old is back in school after Spring Break). Her father and I bought her a lawnmower (a pretty practical gift, but one she really needs) and he will be tilling her garden and delivering the mower this afternoon.

Meanwhile, I have been working on my zendalas for the exchange I am in. I have done the rough outlines of the last three I need to make and now just need to add color (and in the fish one maybe some bubbles).

I am also working (at least in my head) on the Bob Dylan lyrics themed ATCs for a swap I am in. So hard to narrow it down to just three!

I am not doing the treadmill this morning. I have a huge blister on the inside edge of my left foot below the ankle. I walked an hour yesterday anyway by applying some moleskin with the center cut out and walking in my Teva walking sandals. I experienced no pain at all, but this morning my feet are crying out for relief and so if I walk at all it will be much later in the day and for 30 minutes only (unless I get started and don't want to quit).

The hubster has finished a custom order for a rustic bench and we delivered it yesterday. It was a lovely day for a drive and we listened to the end of the Tiger game on the way. It is a lucky thing I wasn't driving or I might have driven right off the road at the way the game ended. GO TIGERS!!

I've had a huge mug of coffee and will not get in the shower so that I can go to the daughter's house and spend time with her and the little one.

Hope to see you again tomorrow!



  1. We've looked everywhere for a bench like that! I wish we lived closer so you guys could deliver one here :-(

    Hope you and the kids enjoy the birthday festivities.

  2. Happy Birthday Vicki's first-born child! :) Time flies I do believe, and your Zendalas are flying too ^^ Would love to see the end result soon =)

  3. Your Zendalas will be awesome when they're finished! 2 of them almost look like someone who knows a bit about math had a hand in them... :-) I know what you mean about "where does the time go". How did they get so old so fast while we stayed the same? hugs, nancy

  4. It sounds like you've been doing too much on the treadmill! You need to take the day off. Have fun with your daughter and granddaughter. Yep, time does fly. Your mandalas are looking nice.

  5. cool zendalas!!

    and what a great looking bench!

  6. Can't wait to see them finished!!
