Bloganuary: My “today”

“Today is a perfect day just to be happy.” – unknown

My day isn’t over yet since it is only midday here in Melbourne. It was a wonderful sunny start of the day but slowly turning out to be a scorcher…. it may not be an ideal day or a perfect one but I am grateful!

My today started with a hearty breakfast of porridge topped with strawberries, blueberries and muesli.

I had a bit of a sketch of the alleyway that I saw yesterday. I started sketching it yesterday with ink and I finished it today with a bit of watercolour. It was a great find because of the texture of the fence that was about to topple down.

Then after lunch I moved the bricks from the pergola to the front lawn, since we are having renovations done on our pergola. That is hard work for me, so I would like to end my blog here haha…

      Awww coming from a very artistic person… appreciate it so much!

      1. VJ Knutson says:

        You’re welcome, Teresa, but I’d say you’re artistic skills are far more advanced than mine.

        1. Teresa says:

          Thanks if you think so… but I’ve seen your work and I love them!
