First of all let me wish you a:
I had a twelve day staycation which was lovely and now I am back to work and back on the blog.
I hope you had a good holiday season and that you are ready to get into 2019. May it bring you everything you wanted and just a little extra as a pleasant surprise. ;-)
For me it was good to just be home for a while. I hadn't been just at home (without plans, trips or engagements) for this long in about a year and it seems I really needed it. I didn't do anything very exciting, I didn't go anywhere (except on the weekend before Christmas) and I didn't have any big parties (or whatever it is really socially inclined people do during the holidays). It was mostly just me and my cat.
I did however have a wonderfully quiet week and a half where I got enough sleep, enough books, enough drawing time, enough cat on my lap and enough fresh air. All the good stuff.
Here's a little impression of my staycation:
|Wadden Sea at low tide.|
|Our main street in christmas decorations.|
|Sail boats in the town of Harlingen on the main land.|
|Visited an urban sketchers event in Groningen at the invitation of a friend.|
|Another view of our main street.|
|The exit/entrance of our marina on a beautiful day.|
|Took many walks of course.|
|Around sunset on the day before Christmas.|
|A long beach walk on christmas day. In the distance you can see our ferry.|
|Lots of drawing was done.|
|Another beach walk.|
|Leaving our only town to explore the great outdoors.|
|Had lots of time to do some journal decoration.|
|Happy New Journal Year!|
|Seals on the beach. (I took more picatures which will hopefully be a seperate post.)|
So now we are faced with a whole new empty year. I look forward to seeing what it will bring and hope we all will have a wonderful and artsy time!
