I have not been very happy lately.
No real reason (aside from the obvious dead-husband / life is fucked thing.
…and as I’ve done before in times of stress, I turned to Pinterest.
…and I pin things that I think are funny or creative or yummy or fun or sarcastic or just plain awesome.
….and I while away an hour or so just looking at beauty and dreaming.
…and I think I have managed to pull myself out of the funk I have been in since death-week at the start of March:
- My Year 1s and I created the most amazing canvas for the school art show. Ours is by far the best. The inspiration came from a pinterest board on kid’s art.
- I brushed up my photography skills and took some kick-arse portraits of a friend’s children during the week. …and for once I was able to get that tricky back-lit light RIGHT due to a few tips I found a link to from a Pinterest pin – Huzzah!
- I made brownies from a recipe I found on Pinterest. (kinda sabotaged my weight loss for the week though so will have to look into that).
- …and my garden is looking great due to pure inspiration I gleaned from looking at photos of garden pron on Pinterest.
I’m touching wood as I type, but barring having the Universe rain shit on me for a while ….. I think I am emerging from my apathy towards life.
No promises, but I hope it continues to work…..
(apologies for the crap photo – school camera with approximately .5 of a second to get the shot and on auto setting … will try to get a decent one on my camera later).
