I have started the process of unpacking my metalworking tools. The studio plans for the home are coming along nicely. I'm not going to lie, my heart longs to melt glass... soon, I promise. The break will give me time to sketch new designs and start some outdoor projects.
After a bit of reading, I have begun planning a garden. It gives me something to daydream about in the late evenings. The new yard will easily hold numerous fruit trees... the list so far includes grapefruit, orange, lemon, pomegranate, lime and an avocado for good measure. A juicer will become a must have item in the near future. The raised garden beds will house herbs, tomatoes, chili peppers, onions, garlic, and much more. Homemade salsa, you will be mine!
On a personal front, I have started running again. It is easy to feel motivated by the bright warmth of Arizona. A quaint farmers market is just up the road... the peaches and fresh corn are beyond tasty. The area is dotted with corn fields, citrus orchards and horse corrals. Yes, corn fields??? Who knew!
