Decided to have a smoothie for my breakfast this morning, with the sun shining and it being warmer to sit outside than in, took my drink and phone with me and enjoyed the morning.

My ingredients were:-

  • Kale
  • Spinach
  • Frozen mango
  • banana
  • soya milk

I just put it in my smoothie maker and don't measure it out first, suppose I should really get more technical but usually they turn out all right even sometimes they taste fantastic.

Getting started again

I am sat having a coffee at the cafe near my house, watching people and thinking how different everyone is, I know I should always carry my sketch book with me but even if I remembered I don't know if I could just pull  out and start sketching with all those people about, I am very shy about people seeing me draw.
I always have this urge that a need to paint or draw but one way or another I find other things to do with my time. I wonder if its normal to go through this. I have thought it maybe because I am not earning anything from my art and I have responsibilities where someone is dependent on me and I must "earn the pennies". Or its because my painting area is not how i would like it. Is this all just an excuse I wonder? Oh well I will sort out my "Studio" as someone mentioned on one of the sites I follow we should all call it that no matter how big or small it is so that you start to feel like an artist. Once I have the studio settled maybe I'll sit down and start doing instead of thinking about it!
