Rose tinted

Sorry I've been quiet. I've had stuff on my mind, health worries and hospital tests and more to go through over the next week or so ...

It's affected my creativity and I've been dithering about unable to focus. Procrastinating. Unable to decide if I should proceed with a large project I'm about to undertake. Finding it hard to settle even to simple tasks

Mosaics always cheer me up :o)






















A rose tinted mosaic for the flickr group Mosaic Monday

1. Quebracho red 3 hours later 2. Spine ma non rose - thorns but not roses 3. Wrinkled~ 4. Le jardin de ma mère

It's my darling hubby's birthday today. I bought him a remote control plane so we are going to take a picnic to Godrevy today and begin flying lessons! I won't be around to visit blogs today but will do so through the week

Have a good week and I'll try to give myself a kick in the pants and finish off some small things

Hope to post Saturday some time!
Carolyn ♥

Beautiful Mosaic Carolyn. Very subtle and thoughtful.
Waiting to know is always unsettling. Probably best to embark on small projects so you can benefit from the feeling of accomplishment when finished. xx

Diane said...

Hope all works out well Carolyn - will email you tonight (hopefully if I can get the laptop from my daughter!!). I agree with the English Writer - Goodrevy is indeed a perfect place.

I'll health and worries can truley dull the creative process, doing what brings you happiness is the way to go.

Thinking of you.

Hope you'll be better soon. Sometimes creating things actually helps to create a little area of calm...

Chrissie said...

So sorry Carolyn. I hope you've both had a lovely day and that things will look up soon. Don't overtax yourself just now, but a little light dabbling on the creative front will probably be good. Thanks for the mosaic.

Cathy said...

Sorry to hear about your problems Carolyn. I hope things get sorted out. It is well nigh impossible to concentrate on anything when your mind is in a bit of turmoil so be kind to yourself and just do the bits you fancy. Lovely mosaic.

You are so sweet and thoughtful ALWAYS. I hope everything is okay. It's okay to procrastinate. Did I tell you the word one of my students made up? Procrasti-faker. Love it. It so applies to me and some of my more unrealistic plans.

i am so slow sometimes~!~ i hope that you are feeling better by now~!?!~
i can really relate to your statement: "Finding it hard to settle even to simple tasks". when one doesn't feel 100% it's hard to know just where to put the tiny bit of energy available. hang in there and above all else take very good care of yourself.
