Savoring My OLW

          Slicing with the Two Writing Teachers community is a pleasure every week.  Thanks for all you do Stacey, Tara, Dana, Betsy, Beth and Anna!

         I noticed that a few days ago, the Two Writing Teachers asked about our One Little Word. In these busy, busy final weeks of school, the special slice of life that means I'm living my OLW-paint, is when I get out the paints and take a little while for something I love to do. It refreshes, takes away all the worries of THE LIST that grows longer every week. Here's a sample of one I've done of a favorite spring flower, those beautiful bleeding hearts. Hope your days are all going as well as they can, and your OLW is a treasure to you. For those of you who are finished with your school years, Happy Summer!

  3. Thank you for the breath of fresh air. Just the thought of pulling out watercolors is like opening a window.

  4. So glad that you are finding time for you. It is so easy to get caught up in the "Have-to-dos" that we don't take time to recharge ourselves.

  5. I love bleeding hearts. I was so sad to leave my very large one when we moved two years ago. Then, just yesterday, I found that I have one growing right on the side of my new house! Your painting is perfect.

  9. Love your painting, Linda. I hope this summer I can get out the paints and forget the list. I'm out of school, but my To Do list is long.

  12. So fun to see you at the garden center on Monday. I bought two dahlias, which were gorgeous on Monday and are now wilting! Yikes! How did I kill them in one day??

    I love that your OLW is something active and fun! Hopefully you will have more time for this in a couple of weeks, when the LIST is complete! You make me want to add "buy some watercolors" to my summer list!
