there's a kind of hush all over the shed,
with three children back in school...
save for one child, our #3 who is a 'silent' soul most days, and has a late start to his school day.
little olive in her basket with her chew stick,
used dog by my feet as i tippity tap,
doodle the mouse in her nest, lonely since the passing of noodle, quite suddenly last week.
speedy the tortoise, in his shell silently snoring,
bingo and linus the cats, in their usual spot on our #1"s bed,
two fish, nora and kevin doing laps in their bowl
and the chickens going about their daily 'peck' in the yard.
and so ten weeks of 'closeness with my clan' has come to an end, i am a wee bit sad but to tell the truth, i am also a wee bit 'gleeful' of getting a few hours of quiet time to myself.
my little etsy store is looking quite bare and so i have made a date with miss ethel.
we are officially back to work on september 8th, giving me a week to get myself and the shed, ship shape and of course giving little olive time to adjust to 'work life' in the studio.
she is off to 'paint' a treasure or two and thanking you most kindly for your 'cupboard' support of last week ~ Tif
