The Floral Breakthrough

It's been a while since I've written anything down and shared with you my thoughts. I hope you have been healthy and making do with what has been handed to us during this crisis.   If you've been ill or a loved one has been ill, I hope you or they feel better soon. I send you nothing but positive healing vibes.

For me, let's just say, I've been making a lot of lemonade, lemon cookies, lemon pound cake lately. I hope you have been making some too. I've been eating a lot, but I'll save that post for another time.
The forced shut down of our everyday lives has been challenging for me, as I am sure it has been for you. I'm feeling it emotionally and financially, but I am grateful for this time with my family, though it has been hard with the teenagers. They want to go back to school and work. Back to normal and with their friends.

I've lately had a big creative block with all that is going on in this big blue marble. Home quarantine, raising teens, working long hours, paying the bills, trying to find toilet paper during this time and aging not so gracefully. On the plus, zero commute which has been awesome! On the minus, it's hard to separate the time for work and home.

Each time when I ventured out, for food and other essentials for my family, I found myself in the floral department at the grocery store. This to which dawned on me as a possible creative breakthrough. I bought a lot of stems and been keeping myself busy with flowers. I just needed to lessen my anxiety and depression through all this. My home is filled with lovely floral fragrances.

Now was a good time to bring out my cameras and start watching the clock. I've always wanted to do a nature time-lapse. This was my second attempt. I'm going to do another one, I only wish battery life was a lot
longer as in consecutive days longer. I will figure it out! 

In the meantime…

Here's to finding a little happiness in the little things.
