Totally missed February, it flew by, with me doing massages, markets, and a visit to New Zealand doing the art retreat. So i will start with the last bit about the art retreat. The flight over seemed to go in a flash and I was met at Auckland by Chris. Stayed at her place for the night and we made our way down early the next morning to Reina's place at Tairua.
Lovely sleepy little town, very close to the beach, shops etc. Meeting Reina was such a pleasure, as was her partner and daughters.
The other ladies rocked in around mid morning, so we spent some time getting to know each other. Straight into the painting then. Nothing was scheduled which we were all happy with, if you felt like painting, walking, sleeping, eating then you could do it. Dinner was probably the only thing we set a time to. A fair bit of painting went on and it was great seeing other artists in action. We ventured out and about to nearby beaches, winery and shopping centres. I am glad I went on this little adventure, lots of fun memories, made great friends and it was something that was out of my comfort zone.
I have done two markets this month and another on tomorrow
so its been busy getting things ready each week for them. There is a Classic Aussie Rock Show on this weekend, so hoping it will be a busy day!
If you are driving around the Hunter Valley on Saturday why not stop in at the https://www.facebook.com/Hunterwinecountrymarkets?fref=ts and have a look around. The venue is https://www.facebook.com/DeBortoliHunterValley
Still have my 3 year old grandson over during the week and I asked if he wanted to paint on my garden rocks, he said no thanks nan.
I asked him later why not and his reply was 'nan sometimes I feel like painting, sometimes I don't'.
Don't we all feel like that at times?
I do hope you are all well and enjoying life. Always take time out to do what you enjoy whether its rock climbing, dirt bike racing, gardening, dancing, meditation or even reading. Eat healthy, cause its the only body you will ever have!
Love and Light to every one of you.
