October Artist’s Date...Comfy is Where It's At

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always ventured outside of the house to enjoy my monthly artist’s dates.  Knowing today’s forecast promises both chilled temps and rain, I am opting for sheer comfort versus adventure this month.  You see, both my body and soul need a bit of added nurturing—some bona fide TLC right now. 

My “all I want this weekend” list contains several projects I'm truly itching to tackle.  Some are biz related (embarking on an e-course, finalizing the agenda for November’s Tickled Pink Creativity Circle, fine-tuning the script for my first podcast).   Others are just for fun (reading, art journaling). 

A host of fab authors (Alexandra Stoddard, Kimberly Wilson and SARK—to name just a few) advocate getting things done from bed—when the mood strikes. Mark’s headed out for a hike (possibly in the rain) this afternoon.  So, guess what I’m doing? That’s right!  Brewing herbal tea, playing yogi tunes, lighting candles, fluffing up the oversized/comfy pillows--then, gathering books, my computer, art journaling + art journaling supplies--and heading to bed. 

Of course, I won’t be totally alone.  Tabitha absolutely LOVES when I work from bed. She’s always at my side—ready and willing to help (smile).  At home and not quite solo this month, it’s still every bit an artist’s date because I’m responding to my own inner knowledge of what I need most: the ability to comfortably immerse myself in projects near and dear to my heart. 

Have you engaged in an artist’s date this month?  If so, please share.  If not, consider settling in to do something absolutely comfortable to you today! 

Hugs!  T.
